David Miliband Dares To Make Mention Of A (Much) 'Greater Europe' ...

*

We meant to mention this matter a couple of days ago ... but you know how it is ... how time flies when you're having fun.

(Sarcasm ends -- serious business begins.)


EU 'should expand beyond Europe'




[David] Miliband on the EU

Foreign Secretary David Miliband has suggested the European Union should work towards including Russia, Middle Eastern and North African countries.

He said enlargement was "our most powerful tool" for extending stability.


David, dear boy, we know.

That's precisely why we've insisted upon saying the same -- so many times in the past.

Read the rest of the BBC's related report.

Sounds good to me ~ a proper United States of Europe. I'm all for the balance of power idea. Always was and always will be. Look what happened when it broke down ~ BushAmerica.

Wow! Can you imagine that? A Europe that included Russia, North Africa, Turkey\Asia Minor, North Africa and much of the Middle East?

I say again - wow!

Reading between the lines as much as the lines themselves often reveals the most.

I note with interest that although early one Miliband states that we would not become a "superpower" he goes on laterto talk of what a huge standing army it would be possible to muster if we all worked together.

I see this as strong hint to the US imperialist faction.

I would be suspicious of anything Miliband was for; his boss is Gordon Brown, after all. Who would 'this huge standing army' be used against? The USA? Don't make me laugh! The citizens of this megastate? Hmmmm.

Why did Miliband have to go to America to adopt a child? (His excuse for not meeting King Abdullah; see Rick's previous post) Are there no British orphans?

I trust him no more than I trust his dear Leader!

None is ever going to take a land army all the way to America but it could certainly help stave off off any unwelcome 'visitors' arriving anywhere ( Europe was interested in), no matter what their excuses may be. Like spreading more of their (US style) freedom and democracy.

You make a good point there, anon.

As right wing hardmen increasingly are taking over various country's leadership\governments, the people of those countries are becoming increasingly pissed off.

Therfore those people must be increasingly recognised as potential 'revolutionaries' by the hard men. So, it makes sense (to them) to plan ahead. If you know what I mean.

Yeah, anon, hmmmmmm is right.

Why would he choose to adopt an American child?

Isn't it commonplace to see people adopting children abroad and bringing them to a better place?

Forget Hollywood hype and look at American without your rose coloured glasses.

Look at all the things Rick's highlighted lately.

The dollars tanking, unemployment is growing, as are crime and drugs. The average American's life expectancy is shortening rather that lengthening, the infant mortality rate is among the highest in the world. There's rampant STD, there's joke healthcare, there's less and less freedom, there's more and more draconian government, there's deprivation across most of middle America, there's the ever worsening unpoularity (or even hatred) Americans going overseas face.

There's almost no union protection for workers, the social/wefare system stinks, the minimum wag is awful.

I could go on. But if I could take any child away from a place like that ~ I'd do it tomorrow. Wouldn't anyone here?

I meant wage of course not wag.

Peter, the comment was 'adopt a child'. Your question; Who wouldn't from here (America)? Well, I wouldn't, for one. Palestine maybe, Iraq maybe, or Afghanistan maybe; somewhere life is REALLY hard.
My question still stands; Why did Miliband have to go to America to adopt a child? Other than the fact that my taxes go towards paying his salary, it is none of my business, but I am curious, nevertheless.
I will remember to sign my post this time.
