ANTI-EUROPEANISM….Glenn Reynolds, in his eternal campaign against European “fecklessness,” says:
The real paradox is in the notion that Europe could “rival” the United States while still being almost entirely dependent on the United States militarily.
I think this sentence does a great job of capturing the heart of the warblogger world view: only the United States military can solve the world’s problems. Europe has nothing ? literally nothing ? to add because they do not have a huge military machine capable of projecting power around the globe.
Is this truly the only value that they think is important? The ability to bomb other countries? Do they ever stop to think that Europe and the rest of the world might have other things to offer if we would just knock off the sniping and treat them as the friends and allies that they are?
