Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh get serious, England will not be stabilized by importing the blue helmets of the UN or the berets of the French army or even the grey caps of the Germans. It would, obviously, be the Darth Vader helmets of the US Army. We will bring democracy back from America to its original home in England, and you will like it or else.

Original home? As the name suggests, the original home of democracy is Greece. Just like tyranny and oligarchy.

If "democracy" is our mission, why don"t we call our diplomats like Bolton, Pence, Pompeo and newly named Dominic Raab ... ehh "missionaries".

Just like the Jesuits leading the Conquistadors, the Conquest of the New World. Recall Iraq, George Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and the Biblical verses in support of the invasion and occupation.

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.

Patience.  Once the US becomes a Christian Dominionist state.
