Davidson also spoke to Formiche for an article entitled EU strategic autonomy died at the NATO summit.””I think the United States should return to the total troops deployed in Europe in 2021, but I see the advantage of having more US troops deployed in the countries of the eastern flank,” said Davidson, professor of political science at the University of Mary Washington, nonresident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council and author of America’s Entangling Alliances (Georgetown University Press).
