    He can comment providing he sticks his hand in his pocket and gives Greece a few dollars. USA has got lots of dollars after stiffing BP.

    It's good that the Yanks are taking an interest in Europe...the last time they ignored and isolated themselves....there was a world war..
    ...and the time before that....

You Europeans want to kick the US out of Europe and the US wants to dump Europe. I would not worry because with the Pivot to Asia you Eurotrash will be left to yourselves soon enough. Until that time you need to understand that modern Europe is a creation of the US and you will do as you are told!

    It is time for you lard ass Eurotrash to stop mooching off the US. Its time for Europe to double its defense spending and to do as they are told. Americans are loosing patience with Europe.

    What the Europeans do-has nothing to do with America,
    what America does, has nothing to do with Europe,

    there may well be times when security /interests may crop up,
    but this is not one of them,

    Americans are loosing patience with Europe.=
    then America should withdraw from Europe, should they not.

    The US will withdraw from Europe but at the time and for the reasons of our choosing, not yours.

I have not mentioned the other geographical areas that you refer to so, I imagine, you will be providing that history yourself.

    Before WWII Europe was a failed continent. The actions and policies of the US at that time corrected this failure and created a (somewhat) functional Europe. Modern Europe is a creation of the US.

    Now you change the story.

    the mighty USA will come , see , and go , like history and that is a fact, no one country rules nothing, and time will bring to the fore someone else in time,

    and that country may well be Australia in the next hundred years.

    unless of course Argentina beats them to it.lol

    http://en.mercopress.com/2015/07/08/obama-calls-merkel-and-tsipras-calling-for-constructive-talks#comment405855: No “change of story.” So that you are clear, when the US government instructs you to act then it is incumbent on you Eurotrash to get off your lard asses and get moving. That is all.

    No doubt that at sometime the US will decline as a super power. And, of course, this is the great hope of you Brits. But this will not be happening any time soon. And until this occurs your position of subservience is secure.

    The US has, at various times in its history been a comparatively weak power. And it is possible that it may become so sometime in the future. But, despite this, the US, unlike the British, has never surrendered its sovereignty to become the client of another state and will not do so in the future. This is one of the defining differences between Americans and you British.

    Your ridiculous suggestion that Argentina may replace the US as a super power leads me to believe that your suggestion that Australia may do so is equally frivolous. Despite that let me anecdotally relate to you a conversation I had about a year ago with an Australian colleague. I asked him what he though Australia's position would be in the event of a conflict between the US and the PRC in the Taiwan Straight. He said that Australia would remain neutral not realizing that the US has already committed Australia in the event of this situation (and many others) occurring. Such is the subservience of you British.

    Yu live in another world and looking for reasons to dispel nations at a whim,
    []So that you are clear, when the US government instructs you to act then you Eurotrash to get off your lard asses and get moving. []

    This is merely anti talking, and giving the USA far more power, than it actually has,
    The UK voted against Syria last year, despite all the rhetoric, the US followed suit, not the other way around.
    [][at some time the US will decline as a super power []
    All powers decline at some time, ..
    [][of course, this is the great hope of you Brits]
    We don’t need hope, we need a government with a spine ?

    []
    The US, unlike the British, has never surrendered its sovereignty to become the client of another state,
    Again just anti, name this state that we have given our sovereignty over too.
    ,,,,

    [][Argentina may replace the US as a super power []
    Sarcasm, something you argies have yet to learn

    [][. your suggestion that Australia may do so is equally frivolous

    Actually not, unless your mate was the government he ,like me, merely has an opinion,
    There is nothing to stop Australia become a great power in the next hundred years,
    Whenever it happens or not is for others to decide,

    the greatest thing abt living in a democracy is freedom of opinions and speech,
    and mine is merely an opinion,

    you on the other hand are merely arguing over what you perceive to be a fact,
    yet still cannot predict the lottery numbers,

    America has only its own interests at heart in Europe, no one else's,
    just as Germany and France has its own interests and agender over Greece, nothing more, nothing less,

    if Greece was to slide out, then the federalists dream of a super state would almost certainly die, or rot in the ground,

    I stated they would agree, and they will,

    as for the British handing over sovereignty to this Euro Super state,
    this will be decided by 2017,

    then mr Hepatia if we vote to stay in, you can laugh till your head drops off,
    because we will no longer care.
