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.

Europe does have HUGE armies, our totalled armed forces are similar in size to the US. We just spend 4 times less on it than the US (measure in percent of GDP). Remember it is not man-power that is expensive, the US is buying the latest and greatest and paying a huge premium for it. Think of it like this: The us buys the fastest 5GHz CPUs while Europe buys last years 4GHz CPUs four times cheapers.
