Not that it matters anymore.
Goodbye, Old Europe - enjoy your Islamization and the sacking
of your countries by Germany and the EU.
Hello, Poland - the future.
I know there’s someone out there who has knowledge of the UN Charter —
Is it permitted, under the UN Rules and Procedures, for a nation to cede its place - and, presumably, its SC Veto - to another nation or entity?
Something very, very fishy here......
It happened when Taiwan lost its seat to China.
They HAVE been trying for some time, and Merkel has succeeded where Hitler and the others failed.
Of course, it doesn't matter anyhow as long as we have a president that stays strong and believes as most Americans do.
Where do you get these drugs ?
Ohhhh the evil germans took englands car industry and now they take their UN seat.
Didn’t God himself grant the english world dominance even if they sit on their lazy asses and keep innovations as far from tham as ever possible ?
To compare Merkel with Hitler shows a state of the mind that cries for strong medication - not for a cure but to keep it from imploding.
Well, the US has only one vote instead of fifty at the UN so the EU gettig one is only fair. Let those individual countries see how it feels...
This will essentially cripple defense of the west in the Security Council.
It is pretty raw behavior on the part of the government to try to deny its subjects at least a referendum when the question is that of ceding sovereignty to another state.
I don't think that anyone 100 years ago could have predicted how far that mighty empire on which the sun never sets would have fallen just a scant century later.
I guess no one should be surprised that Sir Winston Churchill's name is to be struck from the history curriculum in secondary schools in Britain.
Dismissing this with jocular language as if it were unworthy of concern is a mistake IMO.
It seems fair. Germany has beaten England. They HAVE been trying for some time, and Merkel has succeeded where Hitler and the others failed.Funny you say this. I was in college when the Berlin wall fell and studying international relations. Point was made about how every time Germany unified, they tried to take over other countries.
The constitution was rejected , so now they implement it by degree through treaties!
Theres a lesson to be learned here..if anyone is paying attention.....
If all was about facts and figures you were right.
But these hitler comparisons are choosen - let’s put it like that not because they are so practical and congruent with the news of the day.
In fact if england gave it’s seat to the EU it would be a honourable step away from colonialism - recognising human rights stand higher then british rights.
so I will keep on hating the guts of most people who easily throw in hitler or WWII comparisons...
like this guy here:
it should take france’s seat ...not britain’s!!!
The most important human rights that any nation is responsible for are those of it's own citizens. Relinquishing sovereignty and world standing is an absolute betrayal of that responsibility.
I must add that you completely lost me with that comment about Colonialism. Maintaining sovereignty is unrelated to colonialism. I will say though that the effort to instill an EU is in effect colonialism on a grand scale, not of undeveloped states in chaos, but of advanced states at the pinnacle of civilization.
The countries that have permanent seats on the Security Council are the countries that won WWII. That made sense at the time. it doesn’t make sense any more.
At the very least, the UNSC should add India and Brazil, maybe Japan. There should probably be permanent members from among the sane and stable nations of the Middle East and Africa ... as soon as there is one. Jordan is the only contender I can think of thr the ME, and South Africa is the closest thing to a stable force on that continent, which isn’t close enough.
I see a good argument for giving the EU a voice, but how the *&^% did they reach the solution of Britain giving its seat over to the EU while France keeps its seat?
