It’s strange how you continuously speak as if Europe is one country.
Maybe when it shows some spine and tells Washington to mind its own business and starts making its own decisions I might think of it as something other than the Washington vassal that it is.
Don’t get me wrong, NZ is far a better nation and the world would be a much better place if it had Ardern’s as leaders but your knowledge of European politics is not quite there tbh. Populous sound bytes with no real substance.
Adern is just another puppet, she does as she is told eventually... not much better than Europe... just much less important/effectual...
There are alternatives and change is always possible.
Quite true, but as anyone talking to a gambler or drug addict or even just someone who smokes... you can talk logic and common sense all you want but until the person with the problem actually faces up to it actually being a problem and making the decision to actually try to do something about it then you are wasting your time... and the critical problem for the US and the EU is that power lies with those with money and they like the way the system is... they got really really rich and as far as they are concerned poor people are stupid or lazy or both.
Change is very unlikely by accident, and it is pretty clear Russia and China have actually made no efforts to undermine the west to help it collapse faster.
The whole concept of the Russian North Sea Route and all these silk roads from China to Europe are banking on Europe staying wealthy... Why was Russia and is China holding so much US debt if they want them to fail surely owning their debt is stupid because in any open war the first thing the US will do is say we are not paying to our enemy any debt so that debt will effectively be written off.
You would only buy debt with someone you are certain can pay it back... of course the US started attacking Russia with sanctions and trying to cut them off from using dollars etc etc so it was perfectly natural for them to then sell off all US debt they held, but still not because they wanted to invade or attack.
Russian responses to western lunacy has been sensible and measured and controlled.
BTW And the Australian shadow is not as big as you might think...
What is most amusing is that critics of Trump ignore the fact that he actually started fewer wars than Obama did, and Hilary would already have been at war with Russia over her kooky ideas about a no fly zone in Syria.
Odds are she likely would have pulled out of that treaty with Iran too because Iran was starting to develop and grow and was getting lots of investment... it is like Russia or China... let it grow and develop for a decade or two and it becomes rather more powerful and dangerous to US hegemony... which of course cannot be tolerated.

These are the people the west will help and support because Russia and China are soo dangerous... western leaders are fking idiots... but it is never their fault when it bites them in the ass... 11/9 wasn't Americas fault... Osama Bin Laden is an engineer by trade and made most of his millions building cave complexes for the Muj in Afghanistan in the 1980s... how could that go wrong...
