    This reminds me of something I read earlier today.

    44% say Post War is Worse

    It's not about Iraq - It's about Europe and the E.U./Common Market - victory in WWII.

    The U.S. military invaded their homeland and replaced their government with a new, U.S.-style government.

    A new survey showed 44% think life has gotten worse under this new regime.

    Oh, I am not talking about Iraq. A new poll found people there are happy as clams, considering all the death and destruction.

    No, I am talking about Europe. A Financial Times-Harris poll found great discontent with the European Union, which was an outgrowth of the Common Market, which was set up at the behest of the American government as a means of getting the nations of Old Europe to get along and quit having wars every generation or so.

    Americans were really tired of having to send in our troops to save Europe.

    European wars in the 20th century cost close to 200,000 American lives....

    Yep, same stuff. To think the EU was an American idea. *sigh*
