Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You have been warned and didn't heed the bitter lessons of history ... 100 years redux.

"There is this delusional confidence in this idea that America is better than anywhere else, that America is an exceptional country, that the rules and the institutions and the Constitution and the checks and balances in America are unlike anywhere else in the world. And even on the day when we saw all of those things falling apart, even on this day, Joe Biden gets up there and says they're better than this -- no, you are not."

Risks under Democratic leadership ... different but more of the same. Revolutions in Ukraine, Georgia, Libya, Syria and on the bipartisan agenda Iran, and not the Saudi Monarchy or Emirates. Drone strikes under Obama from Yemen to the AfPak region ... collateral damage ... losing minds and souls.
