    ... to suck up to Bush.

    Europe Allies Extend Olive Branch

    Their hopes went south with Kerry's loss. Now they want to be our friends again.

    I say that's their tough luck.

    Agreed. I think Bikini Atoll would make a FINE new home for the U.N.

    /pure conjecture

    As for the Euros lining up to be buddy-buddy again. I have to wonder just how deep they and Saddam were in each others cookie jars, just what data we have to that effect and to what extent they are freaking out now that Kerry is out of the picture.

    Mike Irwin got into this issue with some Kerry coworkers this afternoon after a meeting.

    It was not a pretty sight.

    He's pretty isolationist, and the people he was arguing with are very "we have to have world approval to do anything."

    He didn't care much for their moaning and bashing.

    By the end of it he was really starting to go red, but one of the women was yelling before her boss came down on her.

    Mike held his own very nicely, kept his comments on point and non-personal (they didn't), but he'll probably be reprimanded too.

    Screw the 'world.' For that matter, screw the feds. We should have the right to raise the money, arm ourselves, and go after the bastards ourselves.

    You know Adam, over the last few years I have really grown to like Poland. :) You guys rock.

    (my maternal Grandmother is Polish, Byreika).

    I'll tell you this, buddy: There has not been a Polish joke told in this country in 4 years. I'm serious - it sounds silly but it's true and, I think, a real tangible indicator of how Polands' strength has provided an example for the world of what it means to be an ally. Your honorable friendship has not gone unnoticed over here.

    Not by a long shot.

    - Gabe

    PS: It's all French jokes, now. ;)

    I would like to add that the majority of South Koreans are pleased with the election outcome. From what I have experinced first-hand, coupled with local media reports, the Koreans are proud to help their dear old friend.

    You know, now that I think of it I have NOT heard a Polish joke in so long I literally can't remember one...I'd never considered it before now, let alone why.

    The Euros have a long history of "lining up"!

    We have nothing to cow tow to them for. Their superior attitude is repulsive especially when their individual liberties are so well regulated or non existent.

    The US should move our European bases to Poland.

    The UN should move to France.

    The Europeans have had the luxury to go around "experimenting" with other systems, because for nearly a century we have been around to bail them out if it goes wrong.

    I am in favor of the UN relocating to a problem spot like Somalia, the Sudan, or the middle east. We don't need the UN, they need us.

    The Europeans, notably the French have extremely short memories when the U.S. is the subject being referred to. They forget who bailed their Chestnuts out of the fire not once, but twice during the 20th century, and who forgave Billions in war debts owed. Their Arch enemy, the Germans also suffer from Memory failure as to who rebuilt their war ravaged country at little or no expense to them, who saved Berlin from Communist domination (Berlin Airlift), and whose military presence during the Cold War assured their survival.

    My opinion of the U.N. is not fit to print on this Forum. If I was GW I would withdraw from membership, stop funding to the U.N. and strongly suggest that they are Persona-non grata and need to find a new home, possibly France as they deserve each other.

    The sooner we cut all ties with that America hating bunch of do nothings and proceed to do what needs to be done, the better. Teddy R had the right philosophy, Speak softly but carry a big stick.

    Polack Jokes

    As near as I can tell, the Polish Joke disappeared when Solidarity defied the Soviets. To paraphrase a 9/11 quote, When Walesa and his fellow shipyard workers stood up to the ruthless Communist regime, "We were all Poles".

    John Paul II became Pope around that time, too. Between those two events, no one could make a Polack joke without looking even more boorish and stupid than usual.

    Funny, isn't it?

    Just another small example of how strength and honor yield results in all areas of life and politics.
