Our mainstream media doesn’t seem to like the idea of this story, and yet it’s true. The two loudest anti-American “allies” — France and Germany — have now, in their very first elections following the Iraq War, elected explicitly pro-American leaders.
And it’s not that they lacked choices: both Merkel and Sarkozy faced opponents almost as virulently anti-American as Keith Olbermann and Michael Moore. Their people — whom we are told daily “hate” us — had plenty of opportunity to smack the victors for being “lapdogs to the imperialist power”.
And yet they didn’t. Which makes you wonder. Or it should.
