#1 It is not the US' right to tell the UK what to do. Kinder, gentler, bullying. Whether or not it is in the UK's interest to stay or leave the EU is their own issue.

#2 > EU had "increasing weight" in the world
Yes, it's sinking beneath the waves.

#4 I can see their point. How isolated would they be while the island slowly makes its way across the Atlantic? Land masses don't move that fast...

#5 That's like telling someone to stay with the Titanic if they don't want to be isolated in a lifeboat.

#8 The major Euro-States includ Russia spent the better part of the 19th Century + early, mid 20th Century REACTING to British power + enforced stability, as best illustrated or symbolized by the ROYAL NAVY + SOJOURNS.
IMO the Bammer is correct iff his point is that the EU/EUZ needs the UK - perhaps more importantly, the EU/EUZ needs a UK that is still capable of asserting potent or decisive Continental Leadership + strategic MilPoL power as required.
THE UK CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHY NEEDS A STRONG "KING/QUEEN" = MONARCH, NOT A LAS VEGAS OR SAUDI-STYLE PERENNIAL "PARTY PRINCE".
The above being said, I would like to know how the Bammer + Admin see the US under OWG NAU in 2015 or ASAP after???
IT PISSES ME OFF THAT US WASHINGTON CRITTERS ARE UNILATERALLY IMPOSING ANTI-SOVEREIGNTY, ANTI--NATIONALIST, ANTI-CONSTITUTION, ANTI-REPUBLIC, + ANTI-FREEDOM/LIBERAL OWG + SOCIALISM ON THE US WIDOUT EVEN TRYING OR BOTHERING TO EXPLAIN THE PREMISES OR MERITS TO ORDINARY AMERICANS OR EVEN TO VOTE ON IT!
The above is the stuff that de facto National, Sectarian Revolutions, Militantism, Anarchy, Civil Wars + Separatisms are made from.
