Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I mostly agree, but the EU doesn't by far spend as much on defence as the US does. The Americans spend about $1900 per capita, the EU about $600. Furthermore, the US gets huge economies of scale because they have one military (even though with huge inter-service rivalries) instead of 27 different militaries.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
