America Abandons Europe

Sixty-one years to this day since the film clip that follows was made, the US Secretary for Defence, Robert Gates, now retiring having served under both George Bush and Barak Obama, has given notice that the US can no longer work alongside its European Allies, who now apparently show no concern for their own proper defence. The report is in the EU Observer this morning, linked here, and the most telling quote from the speech is quoted under the video:

"The blunt reality is that there will be dwindling appetite and patience in the US Congress – and in the American body politic writ large – to expend increasingly precious funds on behalf of nations that are apparently unwilling to devote the necessary resources or make the necessary changes to be serious and capable partners in their own defence."

Unspoken is the obvious inference, that the countries of Europe, having abandoned democracy, are no longer fit partners in the defence of Liberty. Worse if the Greek default continues to be deferred, and reality therefore remains ignored by the EU powers that be, the almost certain outcome will be widespread civil unrest resulting in an end result as awful as a return to the horrors of the Mussolini and Hitler tyrannies!

Europe's former nations stand on the brink of chaos, yet their leaders concern themselves with trifles!

The importance that I attach to the grave warning this speech contains has prompted me to also post it on the Orphans of Liberty blog, so that it hopefully reaches a wider audience.
