Before the US protection of Europe from Europeans, it was England.
The problem is that in every, repeat every, experiment in authoritarian government in Europe, the governing classes granted themselves the privilege of state murder.
Great Britain to protect itself had to clean up the mess.
Three times, each costing huge blood and treasure:
With Napoleon in the 1800s.
Kaiser Bill in the early 1900s.
Hitler beginning in 1939.
Now, England is being ruled by unelected European bureaucrats, in what I call "Moscow on the Maastricht". Without, yet, the privilege of state murder.
And Obama wanted the US to be more like Europe.
England is well-advised to get out. As is, now, Italy. The US should let European countries defend themselves.
