    It sure would be great if WRM and his two contributors would apply the same level of scrutiny towards a certain other ally of ours and our fellow country men who are all to happy to accommodate them (I’m not referring to Israel)

      Agreed. My mother’s solution back in the 70s oil crisis was to nuke the sandbox and contaminate the oil to such a degree that it would be unusable. The bonus was obliterating the people who refer to Americans as their private “blue-eyed slaves” even as they cringe behind our military might when their neighbors get stroppy.

      “I summon my blue-eyed slaves anytime it pleases me. I command the Americans to send me their bravest soldiers to die for me. Anytime I clap my hands a stupid genie called the American ambassador appears to do my bidding. When the Americans die in my service their bodies are frozen in metal boxes by the US Embassy and American airplanes carry them away, as if they never existed. Truly, America is my favorite slave.” Saudi King Fahd Bin Abdul-Aziz, Jeddeh 1993

        Is that an actual quote?

          Yes.

    All becomes clear. As long as Hez. doesn’t bomb an EU country, as long as they kill only Israelis and Americans, they have an excellent shot at maintaining the fiction that they are a social welfare organization.

    “but … the vote needs to be unanimous”
    What a great system for ensuring that nothing gets done! The EU will never be the force its founders imagined while unanimity in foreign policy is required. How did those fantasists ever think such a system would amount to anything but a perpetual disappointment?
