Well, Dragon, youre right in your assumption that the east is sticking with the US because of 50 years of soviet dominion. Since the cold war and
pressure from the US collapsed the stranglehold, the people tend to think more favorably of the US there. And since Russia is opposing the US in this
mess, they automatically side with us, for the most part.
France has not been very helpful either. The people in eastern Europe dont want French dominion, and have certain issues with the EU.
But in reality, it would be better for Eastern Europe to step away from both the US and EU and start rebuilding on thier own.they have the potential
to do it. They just need time.
The UK should do what Canada is doing, remain neutral. The pound has always been a rock hard currency. It would put them in a better position in the
middle so that they have the benefits of both EU and US aliance, without having to cast its lot with either.
