    Europe is a CONTINENT with a variety of cultures and a variety of DIFFERENT histories, and only uneducated Americans could possibly lump Icelanders together with the French and Italians together with Livonians and Norwegians together with Spaniards and Portugese together with Russians. And by the way, I am not saying that the US is some kind of evil force, but some of you people are sure arrogant and indeed very, very uneducated, especially, when it comes to European matters... I`ve got NEWS for you: The history of Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and actually, the MAJORITY of European countries when I come to think of it, is far less problematic in terms of modern Human Rights abuses than Australia (a country which I otherwise like and have lived in) and indeed, your beloved USA. Sweden forsaked its imperial ambitions when it lost the Great Northern War to Tzarist Russia. Finland? What imperial history? Norway? 1066 when Hardraada was ambushed by Alfred. Denmark? The Napoloenic war which they were forced into was the last one if you ommit its occupation by Germany. Iceland? Lol, what imperial ambitions? Then answer me, self righteous "M", what Human Rights abuses are these states guilty of in MODERN TIMES? Ahh, nothing in particular I hear you say? Perhaps arrogant Yanks like yourself should read more political history before you spew self righteous nonsense. It is quite empirical that most European states in modern times are less guilty of Human Rights breaches than the US, and no one can argue otherwise. And again, Europe is a continent diverse and different. There are few simmilarities between Belgrade and Stocholm. Do you get it now, or do I need a hammer as well?
