An enemy of thy enemy is my friend.

Of course, Greece won the very first allied war and went on the set a precedent for the rest of Europe to follow in Nazi defiance. Hitler lost his elite paratroopers, from generations of military elite in resilient Crete, and more than all the casualties in the war to that date. Germans underestimate Greece again.

They are back economically than militarily, stubbornly destined to lose yet again. All it takes is Syrzia to say Oxi this time and they are cooked again.

You mean like Britain which ruled 75% of the World for 400 years. uh? Who for over 500 years has been feeding off the blood and sweat of other people and stealing and depleting other peoples natural resources. Or like France who waged war to Europe, killed millions in Algeria and its other colonies in Africa. or the German Nazis who burned Europe to the Ground. Killed women and children decimated entire cities and countries. Thats what you mean by nationalistic?

In a democracy folks vote for the candidates who have the interests of the nation at heart and put them first. No one gets elected US President or even to the House of REpresentatives by promising to view the USA as just another country. The same is true of Mexico... of Canada...

If the EU opposes nationalism that is because it is undemocratic. An empire in fact.

United States, Mexico, and Canada doesn't have a supranational organization that could be undermined by nationalism from one of its members. We just have a trade agreement and we take our disputes to the WTO all the time.

Too bad Mexico's politicians (Canada's as well) sold the nation out. NAFTA is as bad an idea as the EU. FTA's are by their very nature undemocratic.

As North America is dominated by the USA even more than the EU is dominated by Germany...

North America is dominated by USA because they spend 600 billions in defense and have a GDP of 15 trillions, it doesn't really have anything to do with NAFTA.

More American clap trap! If what you are saying about FTA's is true, then the US is not a democratic country since it has signed NAFTA and continues to negotiate and finalize more FTA agreements. As I recall, US politicians signed NAFTA so by your logic, they sold out their nation as well.

agreed neutral observer, its all designed to rob nations of sovarenty and of their culture (eu as nafta) and yes news junkey. German hypocrites of the eu should shut up and not interfere in our affair. If kosovo and Albania would opt to unite its not their affair! Germany was quick to unite with eastern germany first chance they got so the hypocrites should hold their tongue.

please how can you compare the two? nafta can be cancallenced within 6 month if anyone country has any disagreement or choses to exit ,the agreement end and reverts to the old tarrif agreement without penalites....the only way we all would be hurt is if we allow a one currency system like the eu system.our system is better, 3 currencies and the 3 federal goverments each controling gdp and our federal resevse . however the usa is not as wealth as one might think and not sure what will work there or even here ..

?????

The USA dominates North America moron. It is the smaller economies which suffer most under these agreements. If you think Canadian and Mexican corporations can...

Just like in Europe where France and Germany benefit and the other EU nations are reduced to mere colonial possessions.

I compare the two because such FTAs generally start with less multinational bureaucratic control. It evolves over time. It took a long time before the Franc and the Mark disappeared. Empires are built in stages.

I think global free trade should be promoted. The whole move towards competing regional trading blocs is bad for the world economy.
