Europe is still suffering from the lack of labour and a low birth rate affecting its work force, that is a long term problem, give it a chance.
Germany did recovery fast after WWII, especially during the Cold War, for political reasons. Nonetheless from a war torn nation Germany established
itself as the third, or forth country with the highest GNP.
7 out of the G9 are European countries, and second to US the EU possess the most advance weapons on the planet, and this is where China will buy its
arms in the future. Economically the value of US dollar is dropping and the Euromark rising fast.
Despite having difficulties and problems, keep in mind that the EU is still young, it has its potential, it just hasn't reached it yet.
As for the war on terroorism, being as an American Agent47 you have no place to critisize the Spanish or British authority on the success of the
Madrid and London terrorist attacks. Even with the branch of CIA spreading as far from Tokyo to Israel, from Liberia to Seoul, covering virtually the
entire globe, and with the Navy SEALS or the Delta Force claiming to be the best special forces on the planet, i see no prevention for the
catastrophic destruction of the Twin Towers and attack on the Pentagon itself, a symbolism emble for the American military might and power, causing
more than 5 times the civilian casualties with the bombings of Madrid and London added together.
