Well. The U.S owes Europe large amounts of money.... Money you have borrowed to save your economy with when hard times fall on you, and when you need extra money to make war machines. Invade “communist states” and bomb foreign countries. Partially sponsored by Europe and neutral Switzerland... Good luck running your military campaign with massive debt and lack of money. You would have to make a pro British Empire move to make that work out in your financial favor.Also don’t forget about plenty of high tech weaponry made in Europe, commonly purchased by the US in large quantities. They would never fuck with their little puppet states. If the U.S says bomb Libya, we don’t ask why. We ask how much. Europe is a friend for now, and America is that loud child with wealthy parents you must listen to.
