This piece of news from HotNews really made me laugh out loud:
"The German Marshall Fund of the United States survey revealed that the Romanians are the most atypical Europeans due to their high support of the US foreign policy and of the presidency of George W. Bush (42%) that exceeds the Americans’ (40&). Therefore, the Romanians support the USA world leadership to a high degree (48%) along the Dutch (48%) and the British (51%), who also consider that the NATO role is essential for their country’s security."
So are the US citizens waking up, while the rest of the world is put to sleep? It is easy to support things that have no connection to you really…We wanted NATO, then we wanted EU, whose enlargement is most supported by…yes, Romania. We want and support everything there is, but rarely stop to think of the consequences. I wonder who the respondents were. What income and what background they had.
It seems we strive to get accepted in all possible organization, just to gain some attention or respect even. In the end, what exactly do we stand for? No matter how great certain individuals might be, as a country (elected representatives or majority) we pick the worst causes to support.
