Europeans complained for years that we were spending too much money on our military. They told us we didn't have to be the police of the world. The Nordic assholes on here especially. You people all told us that you didn't need our protection and that we were paranoid. You said that Russia would never start a war in Europe. Well, where are you today?
All of Europe joined NATO to protect themselves from Russia aggression but you never did your part. You spent all your money on social welfare programs and neglected your defense spending. You thought it was cute when you couldn't destroy Libyan tanks or had enough missiles to bombard Syria. You laughed when we said you wouldn't be prepared for an attack by a reforming Russia. You said it would never come. Well, here it is.
Ukrainians rioted and moaned when their government was in negations to join NATO. Black bloc protesters fought with the police when we offered to extend our protection to their country. Where are the black bloc protesters now? Dead. Shot down by their Russia supporting former leaders.
So tell me what you want us to do now? I would find it delightful to watch the Europeans struggle to repel Russian military from Ukraine. But my sympathy for the Ukrainian people and their desire to sit at the table of western states prevents me from sitting on the sidelines.
From this day forward, Europeans lose any right they have to complain about U.S. foreign policy. The only Europeans I would consider listening to about foreign affairs are the British and French. The only two countries who were wise enough not to completely forget the long history of warfare and death that has spawned from that continent.
So I ask you, what would you like us to do Europe?
