"The joint statement is signed by British Prime Minister Tony Blair; Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi; Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar; Portuguese Prime Minister Jose-Manuel Durao Barroso; Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen; Czech President Vaclav Havel; Hungarian Prime Minister Peter Medgyessy; and Polish Prime Minister Leszek Miller. "

So, that is

UK, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Czech, HUngary, Poland.

A note: Denmark Prime Minister signed it without the other paries in Denmark knowing. So they are very upset atm.

"coalition of the willing"

Adrian, since your Prime Minister (Denmark) is obviously bought off by someone.

Do you think he already signed a paper that gives USA the right to build bases and place those Missile Defense systems in Greenland?

Since he did it with the Iraq thing, there is ver likely he did it in the Missile Defense issue!


And that coalition, its just sad.
Hungary, Poland and Czech: They just joined NATO like few months ago (*cough*)

Italy: Italy Prime Minister have had an Oil skandal going to court etc. He was "freed" by the CIA. (hello, we help u u sign this)

Denmark: The Prime Minister signed it without ANY support from the Denmark parties. (*thanks for the money*)

Spain: Remember the "little island war" between Spain and Maroco last year? (lets have action take about this soon, preferably in the UN. We got USA backup)

He is not bougth, but have always been very pro-us, to the extend it is redicolous.
In general, Denmark as a little country have the tendency to follow the big countries without asking too much, and our current PM is worse to do that, cause he actually believe it's rigth what he do.
Biggest problem is that he by-passed the normal debates that have to take place, and acted as a dictator, and I'm sure he'll have to come with some good explanations here in Dk very soon, or he'll end up in neck deep shit.

>>> Do you think he already signed a paper that gives USA the right to build bases and place those Missile Defense systems in Greenland?

Nope. Greenland have some authonomy, so he cant do that. However, Greenland with 45.000 inhabitants need some workplaces and money, and they are very dependent on the US bases there (Thule, Sdr.Stroemfjord, Narsaq etc) so I guess they accept the offer, if Russia approves too.
I don?t know IF Dk PM can accept the radar without greenlands approval, in a legal sense, but if it should happen, they would feel so marginalised about their own lifes there, so they would choose completely independence, so I can't imagine PM would ignore their opinions.


>>> Since he did it with the Iraq thing, there is ver likely he did it in the Missile Defense issue!

See above


>>>And that coalition, its just sad.
>>>Hungary, Poland and Czech: They just joined NATO like few months ago (*cough*)

I?ll call it "misunderstood solidarity" (and I?m sure youll call it something else :()


>>> Denmark: The Prime Minister signed it without ANY support from the Denmark parties. (*thanks for the money*)

Not a matter of money. That is one of the few things I'm 100% sure about.

Well, its kinda dumb. Isnt DK an democracy to some extend?

Um, look at the other small countries in the region. Finland, Sweden and Norway. They don't follow the big ones just because they can. They actually debate stuff like this.

Sure it is, but PM's can act independently in democracies too, at least untill they are stopped.
The way you will see DK as democratic is that when a limit is crossed for what is reasonable, it will be corrected soon, and I'm almost sure it will happen in this case too.


>>> Um, look at the other small countries in the region. Finland, Sweden and Norway. They don't follow the big ones just because they can. They actually debate stuff like this.

We normally do that too, and that's why I am so pissed at the idiot. It's not so much the decision itself, but more the ego-race the PM is running, and it will not benefit him in the future, that?s for sure.

>>> Hihi

No "hihi" here. Not funny, but sad and tragic....DEPRESSING!

Agree.
Especially the different views between the EU countries when it comes to foreignpolitics makes a close union very very difficult, if not impossible.
I doubt that the EU will never be a real political union, but "only" trade and economics, and I prefere it like that.

My brother in law was in Britain last summer and he was surprised at the number of people who were gung hoe for the war.....

In Canada you have a hard time findingh anyone that is for the war........Although listening to 2/3 the canadian media you would think Canadians are a bunch of war mongers.

""Shame on Denmark (sorry Adrhdk), Holland, Poland and Czechs. So much for peace in Europe""

thats right.....so why should we care when they whine about the big bad Germans invading their backwater shiateholes...

all of Europe and the west would be far better off under national socialism.........The evils of Globalization and the NWO corporate elite are and always have been our biggest threat..

nationalism good (truly Democratic) and internationalism (socialism) bad
