Why Europe cant compare

Reader comment on item: Europeans: From Venus?

Submitted by Walt (United States), Sep 20, 2005 at 04:19

During world war 2 America was on the Lend-lease program with Great Britain and Russia. The previous article stated that Britain was responsible for capturing the Enigma machine, supplying russia with arms, and for stopping the Nazi invasion of Britain. All of this is untrue. How could britain supply Russia with military equipment if it was relying on machines from America, through the end-lease acts, to stop Nazi Germany from invading? The Enigma machine was captured by Americans during a submarine raid in 1943.

You can blame america all you want for what ever reason you feel you need to, but European countries have looked like much bigger fools than America ever has. In France, during the same time we beat the british out of our country in the American revolution, they were killing thousands of citizens in the guillotine, corruption ruled their new democracy, and were denying the existence of God (by reverting to pagan beliefs). Napoleon even arrested the Pope. Britian during its time as an empire has enslaved populations of people just so their "king" could get richer. If some new exotic fad came around the European courts (like sugar) they would simply overthrow the country that can produce it and then own the monopoly on it. I dont think I need to even discuss Germany.

Basically Europeans dont like us because they no longer countrol the world. They should have thought about that before they tried to destroy each other earlier in the century. Now because of there unemployment rates and their birthrates (their population no longer grows, studies have shown that they are actually losing more people then they produce), it is no wonder that we are the new "empire" of the world. Instead of being a bunch of different countries, Europe should come together as one country, much like our states are in our country. They should soon before China has a chance to rule the world.
