A World Without Europe?
An article in France-Echos reminds us of still another reason why Bush was never a defender of Western civilization: his strong support for Turkey in the EU:
George W. Bush, the President of the United States, during a meeting at the White House with the Turkish Prime Minister, reiterated his fervent support for Turkey's candidacy in the European Union. "I was very clear with the Prime Minister, I think it's in the interest of the United States that Turkey rejoin the European Union," declared Mr. Bush as he shook hands with the Recep Tayyip Erdogan , Prime Minister of Turkey, in front of the White House.
The editor of France-Echos adds this note:
George W. Bush is completely right, it IS indeed in the interests of the United States, both long and short term, to make Europe collapse. The United States will be stronger if Europe is no longer capable of producing airplanes to rival those of Boeing, of producing television shows and movies, all of which will become impossible when the Turkish hordes start pillaging legally the public funds of socially advanced States, provoking civil unrest, having an abundance of babies, lowering the standards of education, creating political instability thanks to a Turkish Muslim majority, then provoking a global recession thanks to the collapse of the European countries, rotted from within from Islam.
In fact, it would be even more accurate to say that the USA will seem stronger if Europe becomes weaker, because in fact the USA will not have advanced, rather Europe will have regressed!
Long term, it's in nobody's interest, but have you ever known a politician to reflect on long-term consequences?
Note: I'll just add that the editor is too optimistic about America. The minute Europe collapses, America is gone. The hordes from South of the border will stream in, Muslims will continue to arrive by the thousands (as of now, we "welcome" about 40,000 Muslims a year).
If our government is in the hands of Socialists, they will make quick work of the whole thing. If, by some miracle, we recapture our sense of nationhood and patriotism, something may be salvaged. The world without Europe is not the world.
