Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Exactly.  The ruling "oiligarchy" would never stoop to something so anathemic to amurka, and they are far too sophisticated.  Barring some unforeseen calamity, like "a new Pearl Harbor."  Or barring complete madness by the current occupants, which remains something not to be taken lightly.  The current consolidation of power seems to be working quite effectively.

MillMan, i liked the way you described the 2% disenfranchisement, but remember it gives real power when focused on key states in the electoral system.

Anybody remember the "Yankee and Cowboy War" from the late 60's and 70's?
