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

51st state??? I think Spain will have to stand in line behind Israel, Canada, and Britain at least... Those alone are another 1+13+4=18 states. So Spain might have a chance at state number 69...

First, I strenuously object to including Israel in that list. Israel has far more say on US policy to be included in a list that includes Spain, Canada and the UK.

And I find it highly unlikely that the US would want Spain, Canada or the UK to be upgraded from the Autonomous Commonwealth status they share with Puerto Rico.


I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.

When did we bump Air Strip One and Spain up to Autonomous Commonwealth status?

Canada, sure, but only because they drink milk from bags, and that's fucked up.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

AFAIR, so they could join the EU. Need to make sure that that business does not take off.

Luckily it seems that Germany wants to avoid that as well, so it may have been over-thinking the different scenarios. DoD does that sometimes.
