    Biden trip yields few tangible returns

    I pretty much had a feeling that Europe's attitude wasn't going to change with Obama and Biden being in charge. In my opinion NATO's European allies have become shells of their former selves. With an enemy no longer on their doorstep the Europeans rather sit back and let us do the work and then try to swoop in for the fruits of our labor.

    Absolutley agree.


    This is exactly what led to the Iraq war IMO. Oil for Palaces.

    All of Europe knows Bidne is nothing more that a life-long whipping boy and sales slut.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Get off your high horses. Vice-presidential trips are not supposed to change foreign policy. Biden staked out the position of the Obama administration a year ago when he walked out of a dinner with Hamid Karzai. He is no toady, and European leaders who get a warm greeting from him probably breathe a sigh of relief.

    Between platters of lamb and rice, Mr. Biden and two other American senators questioned Mr. Karzai about corruption in his government, which, by many estimates, is among the worst in the world. Mr. Karzai assured Mr. Biden and the other senators that there was no corruption at all and that, in any case, it was not his fault.
    The senators gaped in astonishment. After 45 minutes, Mr. Biden threw down his napkin and stood up.
    “This dinner is over,” Mr. Biden announced, according to one of the people in the room at the time. And the three senators walked out, long before the appointed time.
