You have flooded Western Europe by Muslims and Africans, you manage European Union with bureaucratic style. Today’s Europe = Germany & France only, regardless of the small countries. Sorry, but we have experience with nazism and communism and we never let the victory of totalitarian ideologies, like islam or European Union neomarxism again. Our part of Europe is still real Europe, not like yours. Your Europe – Western – begins to be like African shariah country, with parallel muslim community. One day you will want to come here.

That’s your shame.

Here is a famous quote from Ms Nuland of the State Department (2013),
“F… the EU”
What can I say, mission accomplished!

Europe is losing the battle for the heart of Europe; my part of ‘the West’ is doing just fine.

My part of ‘the West’ has spent > 3% of its GDP on defense for many decades. The EU bunch… 1% maybe. Could be why they don’t have the navy they need to defend their coastline. Haitian refugees get intercepted and taken back to Haiti, because we have a Coast Guard and Navy. Seems to work for us, sorry about Germany.

As to eastern European corruption, do some investigative work on the British and French bankers. Barclays is simply more efficient, and its execs have learned to shelter themselves a bit better. Maybe by using their relationships with British media companies…

Which has strengthened the sense of national identity in Eastern Europe – Croats, Serbs, Russians, Hungarians, etc. Hence the rise of nationalistic anti-immigrant forces and parties, with left/liberals split between “hard headed” and “soft headed”.
Germany seems badly conflicted, by “inviting” economic migrants as “refugees”, with many arrivals from impoverished nations other than Syria. Then trying to force the rest of the EU to take a proportion based on say relative population was outrageous to many. Now they talk about tighter controls and lots of deportations, but will this really happen when origin countries like Algeria do not want them back ?
Even without the extra problems of “Islamic identity”, large groups of new arrivals from an ethnic/cultural group tend to compete with the lowest layers of the host society, form “mafias” for access to work and social support, and may take generations to become “cross cultural” let alone “assimilated”. Many benefits but many problems to overcome for multicultural societies like Australia.

Look at a map. It’s just part of the Asian Continent, where people got too far north and lost their skin pigment a few thousand years ago. Any attempt to maintain a “European identity” is folly. Always has been, always will be. Europe is an imaginary designation. If you doubt this, then tell me. Without googling: Is Azerbaijan European? How about Georgia? Armenia? Belarus? Europe or not Europe?

Now with the help of ignorant liberals they have succeeded.

France, UK, Germany, Scandinavia, you will have Kalashnikov and RPG sectarian violence in your streets on a weekly basis soon, because of your naivety and hubris, thinking you could tame a wild animal or reason with the insane.

Again, another opinion piece. Do you ever investigate anything?

My country, the United States, has opted for “regime change” in just about every region of the world. This logic leads to war. Not piddling war—but world war.

Americans should realize their greatest enemy is their own government—not Russia, not China, not Syria, not Iran, not any of those places mentioned by politicians running for President.
