Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
well, that'd be fine...

what wouldn't would be some finger-wagging exceptionalist b.s. for the redneck domestic consumption, instrumentalising europe for a purely u.s. agenda.

i wish i could totally trust obama on this, we really need an american president who doesn't pretend to look down on us, (or over-venerate us for that matter!)

on. the. level. please barry. no trumpeted platitudes about how we should do anything. (or we'll tell you where to put yer war)

some tact, m'lad! be an example of a trans-nationalistic global citizen, if you really want us to warm to your cause more than we already do...

waving that tattered global hegemon flag over here will not win you any cookies.

save it for the rubes you need votes from back home, and just be your sweet self.
