|Merkel and Hollande lambasted before the EU Parliament.|
There must have been a great moment for German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President François Hollande before the EU Parliament in Strasbourg when UKIP leader Nigel Farage has read the riot act to them. Both looked very abashedly. They are usually surrounded by sycophants that they are no longer used to such direct words. Both of their speeches demonstrated the desolate situation of the EU, quasi "The Last Days of Europe". What they have presented before the Parliament, borders on the denial of reality.
The current EU is in a messy state. In this dismal situation French President Hollande said: "We need not less Europe but more Europe. Europe must affirm itself, otherwise we will see the end of Europe - our demise." And Merkel said in her speech, inter alia, "In the refugee crisis, we must not succumb to the temptation of falling back into acting in nationalistic terms ... national solo efforts are no solution to the refugee crisis." Both did not mention the main responsibility of the US who created the chaos with the help of its NATO vassals in the first place.
The talk by Nigel Farage was much more entertaining. He described the role of France against Germany in the EU as "little more now than a pipsqueak". The British political scientist professor Anthony Glees compared Germany's behavior in the migrant crisis to a "Hippie State being led by emotions". Others called Germany's policy "Voodoo Politics". For this kind of chaotic policy, Angela Merkel should not get the Nobel Peace Prize. This would be the same mistake as the awarding of US President Barak Obama who is still waging war in the Middle East and bombs other Nobel Peace Prize winners.
