No problem for the EU. Putin will take care of it.

Besides, America is a joke:

yeah, at least he could have come up with Birmingham or Berlin Neukölln. I expected some post about Spain. But Ukraine?

You Euro lemmings talk about all the problems in the US inner cities. When was the last time North Americans waged war against one another. We had to intervene in yet another of your conflicts a decade ago. You Euros still have armed separatists movements, for god's sake. You are still having civil wars. You still have "royalty" for fuck's sake!

Get a clue. We are laughing at your hypocrisy.

1) ukraine is not in "europe".
2) Just because europe has problems doesn't mean europeans can't criticize the US (and vice versa).

I suppose the Balkans are not in Europe, either. Or the Basque region. Or Cyprus, or........

Hey you, ouariconian, I understand the name of the state you live in comes from an engraver's error. But that's not good reason for not caring about the names of other regions of the world!

Yes, any place that's embarrassing is "not in Europe".

Serbia, Moldova, or Belarus, for example: not in Europe.
Ireland, with those horrifying little leprechauns: not in Europe.

Oh, and the Ukraine is and has always been part of Europe. Anybody with an education knows that.

Costa Rica, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Cuba, ...
Wars between nations, civil wars, economy wars, drug wars, you name it. And every time, the USA and its stinky finger CIA at the centre of the conflict.
The Ministry of Truth suggests another civil war in the USA coming in 2016.

That is not exactly true. (From... some particularily objective standpoint... that is to say... from... the inside) :twisted:

The exact (and historically proven) truth would be better worded as follows :

Any place in Europe that's embarrassing is... unknown!

We see things that way since... Alesia! :P

I forgot Spain, which is arguably part of Africa.

Other than trade agreements in come cases, the Americas are not unified as is much of Europe. Europe also has ties to the Caribbean.

You folks are unified in your little skirmishes and wars. There has not been a single US American prezidente who has not fucked up some part of that world. And our ties to the Caribbean actually bring democracy, peace, justice, and prosperity to the region.

The main things Spain has brought to the Caribbean are genocide, disease, religious fanaticism, and negroes, just like everywhere else.

Whoa, back up the train!!! If you guys can claim the Soviet cosmonaut program as a European accomplishment, then you have to accept all the baggage that goes along with having backwater former soviet states as well.

They may have gotten democracy, but they had to fight you to get it.
