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.

First off, the cold war is a long time over. Secondly, you don't seem to know much about European armies. On their own and compared to the US, individual European powers have small standing armies but together they form quite a formidable force. If you seriously think that the idea of a unified European armed forces does not make the US nervous then it is you, my friend, who has a seriously warped view of the world. To think that trade negotiations of any kind are done without keeping thoughts of military power in mind is very naive and completely flies in the face of history.


This may be one of the dumbest statements made by you to date. Might want to think this one through for a moment, or pick up a book for once and educate yourself.

Care to qualify that statement? Or are you just trolling again?

If I recall correctly, it's you who's been consistently unable to come out with a valid statement in any of our discussions. In fact, I end up handing your ass to you every time due to your jumping to conclusions and general level of ignorance on most subjects you start spouting off about.

Seriously, you're the last person on this forum that can start calling somebody else stupid. Whatever gave you the idea that not being able to understand copyright law somehow made you an expert on it? That's like Bill O'Reilly saying evolution can't be right because it's to complicated for him to understand.

I will actually be kind here and give you a hint on where you need to start. One word: SACEUR. Read up on that, read up as to why this has been, is, and always will be an American. Good lord, f--king read up as to the damn politics behind this whole idiotic notion of an EU army and as to why it has gone nowhere.

Your little dream of an EU army is just that, a wet dream that could be splintered and broken in a day in any conflict.

FYI: I thought most of this is common knowledge, maybe you should spend less time pirating stuff and more time reading? Just a thought.
