  • Europa, Europa!

    Huge festivities complete with orchestras, choirs, speeches, tenors, acrobats, god knows what else are raging across Europe as I type these words. I'm going to my friendly neighborhood booze dealer for a 12-pack, I want to celebrate too and am kinda moved.

    Europe has risen to new heights of political, social, economic and humanitarian achievement. This could be the beginning of the real new Roman Empire that Charlemagne or Germany's young emperor Otto III could only dream of, except so much more perfect. And achieved by peaceful trade and political cooperation, not conquest.

    Congratualtions and best of luck to Europe.

        Let's just hope they don't get too cocky. We'll have to knock'em down a peg.

        Congratulations Europe, you're finally doing something you should've done in 1945.

            Unfortunately Europe had no influence over what could have been done in 1945 because Stalin was too powerful and the Allies too intimidated by armies.

              Wow you can make sense

              Its true Stalin and the Red Army could have walked al over Europe in 45, do you think he would have if the US didnt have the bomb?

              I doubt it would have happened either way he was a paranoid man who was happy to keep his power over the Soviet Union and wouldnt have wanted to expand Soviet influence further as it may have destabilised his leadership (his thinking) by bringing in more administrative problems that he wouldnt have been able to deal with, the man was an administrative machine who worked nearly 20 hours a day.

                Well maybe they could've done something like the EU when Imperial Germany crumbled in 1918, Paris 1919 was a disaster and was just a catalyst for more conflict.

                  Its a bit hard when the concept would never have been thought of in 1918 and would have looked imperialistic like old europe

                              So, what does a moderate imperialist do? Beat the crap out of the natives and then give a "I come in peace" speech?
