Legal We have some very, very good news for Europeans (which happens to include myself): we have the European Parliament on our sides when it comes to battling ACTA. If you may recall, ACTA is basically an attempt by the US to impose upon the rest of the world draconian measures like three strikes laws and the DMCA. All parties within the European Parliament have together put forth a resolution that would effectively tackle ACTA.

Yes, I did know that. But, frankly, the point still stands. Why don't you guys have huge armies? Because we do, and we're your very good buddies; we're such good buddies, that we'll let you borrow ours, if you really need it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I also believe that the British and French nuclear arsenals are a tiny, tiny fraction of the US's, aren't they? I want to say the British have all of one nuclear submarine?

Not that huge nuclear arsenals are a good thing, mind! It's just that - again, so far as I know, and I could be wrong - the French and British arsenals are more tokens than real and credible deterrents.
