THEY STILL DONT GET IT
I guess two world wars, the attempted extermination of an entire race, and the threat of nuclear annihilation hasnt learned our "friends" in Europe anything over the past century. They still have no idea how to handle a significant threat, and they still rely on the United States to bail them out of every major problem that might end up smacking them in their ugly, smelly faces. If you think Im full of beans here, merely go back and look at the press conference that President Bush was involved in yesterday in Austria. I swear that I have never heard so many stupid questions in all my life, and thats saying alot for someone like myself who follows closely the media here in the US. One particular ignoramice who somehow got access to the microphone yesterday asked the president if he thinks that US foreign policy is the biggest threat to global security, citing a poll taking in Europe that shows that most Europeans think the US is more of a threat than either Iran or North Korea.
Now, I have no idea if that poll is true, nor do I care. Just the fact that this idiot had the balls to ask the President of the United States such nonsense says alot of Europe as a whole. The president by the way eloquently told the reporter that his question was 'absurd.' I did a research paper this past semester on the foreign policy of the European Union, and my thesis was basically that there isnt one. They would like to get their act together over there to challenge the US on the worlds stage, but as of now they are completely weakened both in political will and in military capabilites. Even if the EU could muster up a military force, they would never deploy them. They just do not see a threat in terrorism. As a matter of fact, many of them, like Jack Chirac over in Paris, are terror sympthizers. Yet, many in this country say that we have alienated our allies in Europe by invading Iraq.
Well, I personally have no problem in alienating a man who was in bed with Saddam Hussein by aiding Hussein in the oil-for-food scandal. Liberals seem to think that Europe has all the answers. Remember the Kerry campaign in 2004? All he talked about was our allies and how we need them in the war on terror. He basically said that because Europe wasnt on board in the war it was the wrong thing to do. I beg to differ John. Just because they are not willing to help us fight global terror and Islamo-fascism, does not mean we should just stop. Europe didnt want to fight Nazi-fascism back in the 1930's, and we had to bail them out which costed us more than 400,000 American lives.
Luckily for the world, there are certain leaders in Europe who understand what we are up against. Men like Tony Blair, and the Prime Minister of Denmark, give me hope that some Europeans have what it takes to do the right thing, even if their political careers faulter because of it. I would like to see a poll done in the United States on how American feel about Europeans, because that is a story that is never reported. We always hear about how much they dont like us, like it really matters. Im willing to bet that most Americans think that Europeans are weak and inept, which is the absolute truth. Im also willing to bet that you will never see a poll like this done, go figure.
Finally, dont think for a second that the only reason the Europe doesnt like us is the war or the Bush administration. The fact is that they have been jealous of the United States for years. Cant say I blame them really, it must be intimidating living in a world where a single nation is so much more powerful than all the rest. They should simply embrace American supremacy instead of constantly undermining it or openly trying to create its downfall. The EU is nothing more than Europe trying to balance US hegemony, but its to no avail. You cant create a world superpower with only huge sums of money and a huge bureacracy. Our supremacy is 230 years in the making, with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Sorry Europe.
LONG LIVE THE AMERICAN EMPIRE!
