For much of the past year, Europe has been divided over America and its war in Iraq. Now it is divided against itself. France and Germany assailed the U.S. for riding roughshod over other countries in the war on Iraq. Now they stand accused of being the America of Europe, a two-headed superpower that has the rest of the European Union lunging at its throat. The dispute has been building steadily since last year, when French President Jacques Chirac joined forces with German Chancellor Gerhard Schroder to strike a deal on reforming the Common Agricultural Policy that favors French interests.
