Even though we refer to Washington, D.C. as the capital of the free world, Vice President Joe Biden suggested Brussels in Belgium may well have claim to that title. But would Brussels still exist as a capital for not the allied forces in World War I and World War II?

Not to be mean or redundant, but Biden is an idiot.
Uncle Joe needs his meds upped...........again
You really wonder with these leftist freaks. I didn’t know the european welfare state meant free ... as in lunch? Or as in broke. No more other people’s money to give out ehhh.
Biden has his hair plugs plunged in too deep.
D.C. stopped being the capital of the free world on January ‘09.
I am certain that his pragmatic words will result in the world respecting us more /S
The EU is no longer part of the free world
I’m sure he’d squawk that Mecca is the holiest place on Earth too,
Is this the same Belgium that ran the Congo like a concentration camp under King Leopold? Capital of the Free World, huh?
“..Like it or not..”
Not to mention the way Belgium ran Rwanda as a colony was a textbook example of how NOT to run a colony. First, they put the Tutsis in charge of the Hutus and did all these pseudo-scientific tests to show the Tutsis were superior to the Hutus. Then in the late fifties, they counraged the Hutus to overthrow the Tutsis. Violence started between the two groups in the late fifties. A few years after that, with the country very unstable, the Belgians decided it was a great time to give Rwanda independence.
It’s amazing countries like Belgium can lecture us on human rights with a straight face.
Excellent point. More here. ...
That was only 125 years ago.
I think you are being mean to idiots with that comment!
Re: Rwanda ... Yes, and that was only 90 years ago.
Better Brussels than Wilmington Delaware.
I am so sick of this leftist crap. I wish they would all quit sucking air.... all at the same time.
