JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: AMERICA LOSING WORLD LEADERSHIP – EUROPE COULD REPLACE IT E.U.’S MOGHERINI SAYS – THERE IS SOME TRUTH IN THAT – BUT EUROPE HAS JUST NO LEADERSHIP

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN RUSSIA TODAY

“‘US losing world leadership, Europe can replace it’ – EU top diplomat Mogherini”

There is a grain of truth here.

But Europe simply lacks leadership.

The major countries are all led by weak personalities who loyally follow the American lead.

And, in effect, they allow themselves to be occupied through the illusion of NATO.

They allow themselves to support destructive policies such as that imposed on Syria – which of course generates the awful army of migrants now upsetting Europe – or America’s stupid coup in Ukraine which generates needless hostilities on the borders with Russia and costs European industry billions in sanctions.

There is not a single voice in power speaking to these terrible matters.

Always, for real change anywhere in the world, it takes great leadership.
