Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
An informal one, but one US diplomats have hammered European NATO allies over -- since Clinton I at least. Usually in the context of orders for the US mil-ind complex; and the US's assuaging by European vassals usually took the form of pointless fighter jet orders. Things got more complicated when the preference in jets became Eurofighters or Gripens.

I wish though that our NATO-member governments would stop playing tricky vassals who go along in US adventures but sabotage the effort, and just stopped going along, now THAT would deserve to be called neopacifism...

One whose delusions are out of fashion.
