ABSTRACT
The article discusses efforts at repairing Europe's relationship with the U.S., which was strained by disagreements over the Iraq war. Political leaders such as President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, and Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero of Spain work to promote friendlier ties. The 2009 expiration of U.S. President George W. Bush' term in office, and a more muscular, strident Russia act as prods.
