EU nations must step up their military co-operation as they cannot simply rely on the US to defend them, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker says. "Our deference to Nato can no longer be used as a convenient alibi to argue against greater European efforts.When France and Germany and Italy have to act together, without the dominating force of USA STRONG, they will be far less likely to continue unprovoked aggression against Russia. Those countries have strong economic connections with Russia. They need Russian oil and gas. USA STRONG has weak economic connections with Russia, so we have no limits on our neocon bloodthirst. Hearty Thanks, Ralph!

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
