Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, my dad explained to me how we got into World Wars I and II, essentially corporate nationalism forcing stupid slow decisions by governing bodies. I watched Korea and Vietnam with him, same shit.

Anyone for some clash of civilizations for Iraqs I and II, Pakistan v India, Afghanistan. Y'all know yer Eurohistory bettern' I do.

So now I hear the scientists telling us, as they have before, that if we don't DO some particular things, we're going to force war through climate crashes. Sounds right to me, and I see CopOutFifteen more like CopOutFifteenHundred. Sad. I thought we had scared ourselves sorta straight with NukeFear, but it looks like we'll Holocaust half the world population, mostly non-white, retain our technology, and do a Never Again Again.

Sad really. I don't hope much anymore, unless the regular people on the Internet learn to filter the facts from the bullshit. Could happen. Probably won't.

As Woody Guthrie sang "I'm just hanging around to see what happens next."
