There is no doubt that Europe loses. Without thorough analysis needed evidence shows that grief, terror and pessimism prevails all over Europe. Today's innocent victims in the capital of Europe proves for one more time that Europe fights in a wrong way against the threat of obscurantism.
A war is conducted by mere soldiers but leaders decide when and where it happens as well its' end. These are who will have to sign the final Treaty. Each side of a War in order to win needs two thing to meet its final destiny. According to Clausewitz means and courage are the primary atoms of each War side. Europe has no doubt the wealth and mechanisms to conduct a War. Even an European Army exists with a Greek General. What seems for EU leaders to lack totally is the courage to face the enemy.
Neither Paris attacks nor Cologne New Years Eve's derogation of European values of life were enough to change the passive way of EU leaders thinking and acting. Horrifying today massacre showed a tremendous incapability in intelligence as well protective measures. Brussels airport become a "sitting duck" for decisive enemy soldiers, jihadists.
What showed up in the field was a pure lack in the operational level but furthermore was a longstanding doomed to fail strategic disorientation in EU leaders. Although Mrs Merkel referred to her strong belief in European values she has proved for years now that she hasn't decide which exactly these values are and more alarming to which extend she is determined to fight for them.
The same of course goes for French PM and the rest leaders that express unanimously their condolences but they act continuously with a different perception of reality and future denying to go a step forward from national interests. Mrs Merkel as well Mr Hollande followed by EU Commissioner Mr Junker surprisingly followed for a long time Alexis Tsipras main policy choice for "open doors" to everyone and everything able to pass through without even an identity. In a distinguished manner altogether found in Turkey an attractive spring of youth indifferent for the beliefs and way of life they carried with them. Only naive could have believed that such a huge and hasty influx in EU blood would change in one day in "fresh blood" reviving EU values and way of living. Soon Europe started to alter in a Islamic state with ghettos demanding to keep their principles of life which are totally opposite to Europe values that Mrs Merkel and all leaders declare to defend.
"Who stands on two boats usually falls" so EU leaders have to change their policy immediately if they want to avoid a humiliating defeat and in case to cease this World War. They apparently fight in the wrong side of the river. As they have a lot of means after handling global economic crisis for years they have to find the courage and dare to secure their own selves by orientating accurately to 4th generation Economy World, operationally act and tactically bring happiness and prosperity to their citizens.
Otherwise soon will all be replaced as security is a prerequisite for every civilization and EU societies are in danger of losing it by supporting an illegal flow of humans, goods, ideas and Gods and their EU political skippers most of all.
It is time for EU as a whole identify itself having in mind that the best strategy when you lack courage is to fight with the winner.
It is time for EU to learn to swim...
