    EDIT: What is the military force of the Spaniards like, for anybody who knows?
    Its a self defence force with active professionals. Spain has considerable numbers of troops in Afghanistan (and has had most killed per capita of any nation). As for size it is not as large as under Franco . However it is with reserves and para military forces its military is larger than the UK's.

    Oh, you could have avoided the confusion by using the sign ^ when quoting my post - I was sure you were talking to me.

    Like it did during WW2, or WW1 ?
    So silly.
    What concerns me is the German penchant for quality , as usual, they are making the best of everything....And what are we doing?
    At least we seem to have the world's finest agriculture, thanks to our people and our governments.

    I do, at this time, agree with you about socialism - we do need more of this in America.
    Follow the trail of immigration.
    Where do crooked businesses flee to? The place with most regulations?

    NO. Thats the proof.

    Where do people get exploited the most? The market with the strictest labour laws?

    No. Thats proof.

    Europe by far has the broadest, strictest, best and most regulations concerning business and corporate behaviour and relations between corporations and labours.

    In addition, Europe is in the top when it comes to global firms, production, exports, manufacturing, high tech, implementation and so fourth. What more proof do you need than the simple reality seen without "rose coloured glasses"?
    Europe is illegally occupied by the US

    I don't think their forte is quality as much as it is mass production.
