Hmmm. Compare and contrast these two results from a recent Pew poll in Europe:

So, for example, only 38 percent of Germans would bother defending a fellow NATO ally if it were attacked by Russia, but 68 percent think the US would do the job. Is this cause and effect? Or something else?

In any case, Europe’s view of the US as a global cop who will save them if worse comes to worst seems to still be strong. As always, NATO seems to be something of a one-way street for most Europeans.
