EU To Break Up/

CIA has a dire warning for Europe:

THE CIA has predicted that the European Union will break-up within 15 years unless it radically reforms its ailing welfare systems.

The report by the intelligence agency, which forecasts how the world will look in 2020, warns that Europe could be dragged into economic decline by its ageing population. It also predicts the end of Nato and post-1945 military alliances.

In a devastating indictment of EU economic prospects, the report warns: "The current EU welfare state is unsustainable and the lack of any economic revitalisation could lead to the splintering or, at worst, disintegration of the EU, undermining its ambitions to play a heavyweight international role."


Given the track record of the CIA lately, I wouldn't take this prediction to the bank. But it's clear that Europe has serious challenges. One would think that with all the issues Europe has to tackle, they would have something better to do than obsess over the US and direct non stop hatred towards us. But then again, maybe its because Europe cannot face up to reality that makes them lash out at America. It's a cheap way to make them feel better about themselves.
