To be fair, that is a better spelling for Europe as it is more phonetically sound. [Translation for Sam: Too be fare it is a butter speeling off Uerope by the Sam as it is more soundy-ways good.]

Latest comment: He makes his living by selling travel to Europe...Europe is great, America sucks. Don't spend your vacation money in your own war mongering country; spend it in peaceful Europe (for only a small fee of course). Come with me and I'll prove how great they are and how we are all stupid. All I need is your credit card number. Poppycock

Basically, he's reiterating what Adam Smith said years before. That if you build connections based on trade and commerce, the default result will be peace.

It was only thanks to the Americans that us Europeans were able to do this. All Americans are not all so stupid. They knew that if the Germans actually won World war 2 that Germany, and not America would be the strongest nation in the world. Thanks cousins. I'm just sad for all the other countries that have to go through this but if it helps the world, then sometimes America winning a war is a positive thing.

His point is that countries like Germany & France won't lightly start wars or world wars again because they've suffered a lot more than the U.S. in wars. i.e they wouldn't of invaded Iraq causing the deaths of 100,000's of civilians over bullshit evidence.

America did not win the war... The Allies won the war, but certainly it could not have been done without everyone pulling together. It was just a shame that America took so long to assist.

Yes - it was the Allies who won WW2, and if there was one country who achieved and suffered most, it was the Soviet Union. Somehow they always get written out of the picture.
