The trend may indeed have been in this direction, but the matter is not so simple as it might appear from a personifying approach. Structural forces exist which keep expectations up just as they limit the growth of capabilities. Internal expectations It is inside the EU where expectations have been lowered most in relation to the CFSP. The morale of the Commission in this area has suffered a collapse, with the game of musical chairs over the roles of DG I, IA and IB a symptom of uncertainty. On the other hand the confidence of the old Political Committee order has also been shaken by the new legalism of Title V, and the system is in danger of falling between the two stools of Community method and intergovernmental collegialism, as Nuttall (1997: 1) suggests.

That of global intervenor, along the lines which many called for in Bosnia, is still far out of reach. Of the remaining roles, the EU is no equivalent to the USSR globally, but it is beginning to be the major presence in the old Warsaw Pact area, through the net of Europe Agreements and the positive encouragement it has given to the accession of the central European states. The one caveat here is that since 1992, far from fading quietly from the scene, as seemed possible, NATO has strengthened its position in the politics of European security, and through the lead which its enlargement process has on the EU (indeed, it is helping to shape EU enlargement) it is drawing the United States back into a geo-political relationship with both Russia and the mass of European states.
