Europeans haven't trusted teh concept of strategic ambiguity ever since it bit them in the ass in the run-up to WWI.
They felt that if they were honest and up front about everything they are thinking that it would make them safer.
As long as you say "We won't go to war over this" it DOES make you safer, if safe means someone running roughshod over you...
