German ambassador to the US Wolfgang Ischinger is generally viewed as one of the more brilliant heads in German foreign policy. I read his article on US-European relations in last week's Zeit magazine and had two immediate thoughts: 1. Oh, I'd love to share this article on the blog, if only it were in English. 2. Hm, the sentence structure somehow feels English. Well, not for nothing am I a trained translator. It turns out that the original English article appeared in newly launched German paper called "The Atlantic Times" back in December and can be read on the website of the German Embassy in Washington. Interesting read, that.
