By Disunity Possessed

February 1974
Time;2/11/1974, Vol. 103 Issue 6, p42
The article declares the year 1973 as the Year of Europe, as being declared by U.S. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, in which he urged the European Common Market for the establishment and restructure a new Atlantic alliance. It notes that it is the internal bickering among the European Nine was the cause for the failure to unite Europe and the U.S. However, both country's move for bilateral oil deals which was brought by the worldwide energy crisis may possibly threaten and destroy the modicum of unity that the Europeans had fought to achieve after World War II. Moreover, a celebration was staged in Great Britain as it joined along with Denmark and Ireland to the European Community, making it the European Nine from the previous Six but it became a cacophony of disenchantment.
