Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
it reminds me of the cog-diss around how nuclear power is great for france, america and yurp, because we are superior beings blessed with higher iq and 'enlightenment values TM', but the furry brown people can't have them...

why does europe follow this american model of ridiculously moralistic posturing in front of putin, who does not seem fooled for one second?

how refreshing it would be to hear merkel reply:

'why yes vlad, mein freund, we did have an embarrassing little incident the other day, trying to protect the sharks from the minnows, you know, but we've cleared it up swiftly.

we are sensitive to our history and have made sure that from now on this kind of state thuggery is unacceptable, don't you agree?'

attempting to take the mediatic moral high ground while practicing appalling invasions of privacy upon one's own citizens planning to peacefully demonstrate their democratic right and duty to voice their dissent makes you look stooopid!

please respect the public's intelligence a bit more
