    Ah, don't you love the air of moral superiority pervading Europe. Let me explain why it is undeserved. Most major international conflicts over the past 100 years can be traced back to failed European attempts at colonization - the epitomy of European arrogance. See India, Africa (all of it), Vietnam (thanks for inviting us to that party, France), the Middle East (ever heard of an ambiguous little document called the Balfour declaration? Thanks UK). Perhaps this could all be forgiven in modern times if Europe had truly become a responsible entity. If you want proof that this has not happened, just look at Darfur. European apathy towards this catastrophe makes President Bush's inadequate attempts at a solution look heroic. So, perhaps before you express disdain for American failures in foreign policy, you should consider the massive role your own continent has had to play in the sorry state of the world, and its continued failure to make amends.
