Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The fact that it's always the Europeans that get testy over usage of the term "the west" says to me that Europeans are uncomfortable with implied linkages and commonalities between the US and its cultural forebearers (Britain, France, Germany, and Scandinavia top the list IMO), because that's what "the west" generally refers to.
