Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't care what FOX or the republican Teabagging right think about europe. I just care that european leaders think these crazies have to be listened to. I care that when I listen to the BBC or even read the Guardian, this insanity is peddled as mainstream thinking in the USA.

It isn't.

If this ever becomes mainstream thinking america will either become totally isolationist or its economy will simply disappear in a blue of ultraviolet as it is sucked into the black hole of its own creation. And amongst Imperial Powers there's no such thing as "too big too fail".

Until that point, I'm only interested in how america helps us. I am sick of us helping them; of paying their defence industry to screw up the world, of paying their bankers to take our money from us, of seeing their industries pollute the entire world and having us let them, of seeing their GM crap being foisted on us, because of seeing our leaders tug their forelock like the cold War was still running and that if we don't totally buy into their latest stupidity the ruskies will come and kill us in our beds.

I. Am. So. Over. America. I want a Europe that stands up for itself and does what is best for Europe. and what the lunatics on FOX think of anything exists only for amusement value. And if people in america believe anything on PT Barnam TV FOX, more fool them.

Yea, but he refers to the US as "we", which makes me think he's one of those expats who constantly bemoan the UK as poisoned by unions and inefficiencies.

He's probably a US citizen. Good riddance to bad rubbish, don't come back
