Right Intention: The European Press

The European Press

Here's a look at the European press. I like this passage in particular:

...."Why Europeans don't like Bush" has a shiny obverse, which is "Why Americans care less and less." The commonplace observation is that the end of the Cold War means that the Europeans no longer have to rely on the U.S. for protection, so they can be as self-serving and duplicitous as they wish. But what Americans seem to finally be understanding is that what the end of the Cold War really means is that the U.S. no longer has to give a damn about a European "alliance" at all — especially one dominated by French and Germans. The solution to rampant, hysterical, angry anti-Americanism is cold, practical, systematic anti-Europeanism.

The last three years have been an eye opener for me. I no longer have much regard for Europe. I'm more or less an anti-European already. Screw 'em.
