Discussion in 'Europe' started by onedomino, Feb 24, 2005.
From a German commentator (he must not be too popular in the office):
onedomino, I think this is so right on. The whole problem with GW from the beginning is that what he said grated on all ears. Time after time he's been right, worse than that, he keeps getting things done-here and abroad. They are going into breakdown time.
Commentary and analysis on the Speigel article from WSJ:
Great articles on the topic of "Was Bush Right?" or "Was Bush Wrong?" Seems more and more that he was right, and that the war in Iraq has lit a match under the other countries in the Middle East wanting to be free of their dictatorial forms of government.
I thought it ironic that the Spiegel Online writer stated: "Europeans today -- just like the Europeans of 1987 -- cannot imagine that the world might change. Maybe we don't want the world to change, because change can, of course, be dangerous." The greatet change that the European continent has ever known--the establishment of the European Union--is currently taking place right now. Are the people in Europe ready for such a drastic change on their own continent? The establishment of the European Union is definitely going to turn the Europeans' world upside down. They will be forced to let go of their individual cultures and become one unified country. It remains to be seen how this change will affect them and the entire world in the years ahead.
