Europe is on a long term decline. It is a dead man walking (dead and does not know it). The population growth is negative, so they will not be able to support the pension and healthcare system as there are too few workers. The unemployment rates are 10 and more percent and growing. Spain, Portugal and Ireland (plus many more) have unsustainable debts and expect Germany to support them. Nothing is invented in Europe--all the good scientists moved to the US. The US remains the scientific and cultural center of the world (when was the last time you went to see an German film). And there is nothing honest about Europe. They tried to kill off the Jews during the War (with lots of help from the local occupied populations) and now they will gladly exchange the lives of few more million Jews for a few years of Arab oil.
