Does the USA welcome or worry about the fact that further unification of Europe could well bring about a federal superpower?

They might worry, but they should welcome.

I think they would be worried.

I don't think there's an official policy on it just yet, though I think a world with more than just one superpower could be more balanced. Provided we don't play those stupid cold war games over again.

Competition is good. When Asia unites, they'll have another global power to contend with.

Asia doesn't need to Unite. China on it's own will is well on it's way to being a military and economic superpower.

It does with some Asian countries, but many have made it clear that Australia is not welcome into the Asian organizations which would form the base of unity in that part of the world. We have good ties with Singapore, Thailand, Japan and a few mainland countries, but relationships with Indonesia, Malaysia and a few other countries are cordial at best. Australia wouldn't be invited into an Asian League. They do consider Australia a western country in the wrong part of the globe..

True, but the growing strength of China alone is why a lot of Asian countries, (especially in Asia minor) want greater ties with each other. Japan and China are constantly fighting for greater influence over the region, and the threat of all out war if Taiwan declares independance has scared many countries in that region. They would feel a lot safer if they were united in an organization such as an Asian version of the EU. China does not like the idea. But I believe It will happen. My guess is around 2010.

Yes.. Thats how I see it. China will always have influence over that region, But I believe that the Asian Union would eclipse more of the South East Asian countries like the Phillipines, Indonesia, Malaysia etc. As well as some of the main land countries, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand etc. And countries like Pakistan, China and India, although they'll be closely connected with the union, wont be apart.

So most people at this point think that the US is worried about the creation of a federal Europe. Why is that? Fear of competition or bad memories of two world wars?
By the way, I'm against the constitution and further surrendering of powers to Brussels, but then again- I'm British.

I think you need to separate Bush from Americans in regards to this question. Mainly because I think he would fear it and led his country into trouble.

I don't think any of us is worried. I don't know anyone here that even thinks EU is a superpower.
17 yrs ago - Tuesday 6/7/05 - 4:10:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
It isn't, but a federal Europe would be very much a superpower.

I think the EU is just going to end up being the next US. A bunch of free states that get roped into being a single, united country.

^ Nah, that would never happen. As it is, the countries are often squabbling, and there's no way you'd get Britain, France and all those other countries together. Plus there's the fact that there's no single language to bind them.
I don't think there's any reason for the US to be worried, we're only talking about economic competition, and there'snothing wrong with that.

Interesting comments, it won't happen for a long time yet not with European referendums rejecting the constitution left right and centre but who knows..
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 4/15/07 - 1:09:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
Even so, despite clear no votes in the referendums, the bureaucrats are still keen to push through much of the legislation contained in the rejected constitution by the back door.

Never mind the US being worried, I think most Europeans should be woried about the anti-democratic policies being forced upon them by unelected, and unnacountable jumped up social engineers in Brussels. Especially those living within the UK.

The countries in the EU dont really get on well enough to be a unified superpower. Each country has its own agenda.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 11/3/07 - 10:57:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
As predicted, despite clear rejections of the constitution by democracy, it has been forced through by Gordon Brown and other European non-enteties.

This is the end of freedom as we know it. Betrayed and lied to, what the fu*k is the point in voting anymore?

Biggest scam in history, I see this as the beginning of the end.
