      Abstract

      [From the Introduction]. Enough available evidence contributes to a tentative assessment of a negative, critical, adversarial U.S. attitude towards a more assertive, strong, integrated Europe. Factual proof shows that the influential political and economic establishment that controls the most sensitive decision-making mechanisms in the United States today (Congress, the White House, the Departments of Defense and State) consider the move towards a deeper and supranational, and explicitly "constitutionalized" EU foreign policy, as erroneous, shaky, costly, and even threatening. They also judge that this project is implemented not only in competition with the interests of the United States but also in a directly disloyal hostility. While it is anchored on systematic selective research, this paper is derived from an intuitional perspective. It cannot be construed as purely neutral or unbiased. The commentaries included and the analysis provided are heavily influenced by a concern towards a current situation and trend that have all the alarming signals that the future may be detrimental to the trans-Atlantic relationship. The content of the paper is also dictated by a feeling that the damage caused to the national interest of the United States has been notably serious and will continue to worsen. In sum, the spirit of the research and consideration undertaken revolves around a confluence of personal perception reinforced by evidential documentation.
