Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Given the footprint of the USA on the world, I doubt that there is a single person on earth who does not have a very legitimate right to be concerned with and comment on US politics.  I only regret that so many buy into the faux "security" arguments and continue to elect fawning twits who give legitimacy to the worst impulses of the worst politicians in US history.  

The US public needs to hear clear rebuke and trenchant criticism from our historic allies when the US is so demonstrably pushing events in the worst possible direction, as it usually is. We are like an alcoholic gambler on a drunken bender squandering the families life savings on a delusion.  We are in need of intervention by anyone who still cares for us.
