just want to give my opinion of the original post.

i think many of us europeans have as well. the british media is obsessed with local troubles at the moment, but we still see the wider picture.
"At the same time, we are watching the EU become more pro-Islamic (probably due to rising Muslim populations in Europe),"
define in what way, and with supporting evidence, the EU is becoming pro-islamic.
the EU is about creating military, political and economic stability in europe, and promoting freedom and human rights. that to my mind is not
"pro-islamic" but, i suppose you could say, "pro-choice".
"and seeing the Arab world become more and more anti-American."
no wonder. the US is continueing to provide bias support in term of money, aid and most of all military equipment to israel. what the hell do you
"The list of sane nations (by which I mean nations who wish to stop Islamic theocracy and promote human rights through the democratic-republic
ha! you call that sane?!? you're exhibiting classic signs of paranoia. i'm not expert of psychology (Lupe! get over here ...) its notions like
yours that indicate a lack of sanity.
as for the "democratic-republic government system" of the US, its terrible. only two major parties. elections based largely on who has the most
money. if you want a good electorial system look to germany. we gave them a system after WWII and its better than anything britain or the US
"... has dwindled to: The United States, Great Britain, Australia, Japan, Italy, Israel and Russia."
well, in referring once again to democratic-republican government you can scrap the UK from that list. we're still a monarchy after all ...
"Israel is (I hate to say) ready to fall to the Arabs. Twenty years from now, Palestinians in occupied territories will outnumber Israelis, they will
demand the right to vote, and they will topple the Israeli government from within."
hmmm ... an interesting assessment and prediction. we shall have to see. may i ask, if this prediction comes true, and palestinians out-number
israelis, do you support their bid to vote?
"In other words, in twenty years, the United States will stand alone with Britain, Australia, and Japan against a largely hostile and largely Islamic
rubbish. you will stand as a country, as all countries always have, in a world of cultural diversity. there's no massive change being wrought upon
the world. things are as they always have been.
"However, we have a potential ally in Russia, whose interests are daily becoming our own, and vice-versa."
you mean they want to take over other countries as well ...
"My question, then, is this: Why does Bush insist on continuing with his father's (and Clinton's) Cold-War philosophy and work against Russian
now this is an interesting point. why does bush not support the war in chechnya? it seems to fit right in with his "they're terrorists, kill the
bastards!" philosophy. or is it possible that someone in the bush administration can see the difference between a terrorist and someone seeking
"She could make a valuable ally, but the current administration's continual lack of foresight is preventing us from forging an alliance. Why?"
you seem to make this the foremost concern of the US. why should it be? whatever happened to what's ~right~?
