Sixty-one years to this day since the film clip that follows was made, the US Secretary for Defence, Robert Gates, now retiring having served under both George Bush and Barak Obama, has given notice that the US can no longer work alongside its European Allies, who now apparently show no concern for their own proper defence. The report is in the EU Observer this morning, linked here, and the most telling quote from the speech is quoted under the video:
Unspoken, is the obvious inference, that the countries of Europe, having abandoned democracy, are no longer fit partners in the defence of Liberty.
Worse if the Greek default continues to be deferred, and reality therefore remains ignored by the EU powers that be, the almost certain outcome will be widespread civil unrest resulting in an end result as awful as a return to the horrors of the Mussolini and Hitler tyrannies!
Europe’s former nations stand on the brink of chaos, yet their leaders concern themselves with trifles!
