    Well that only says that one shouldn't eat snails. Seriously, that's gross.

    people eat snails is it any wonder that as the snail slithered along its evolutionary pathway, it developed its own mobile bomb shelter, I have a pet snail called Brian, 40yrs ago I threw a stick for Brian to fetch, he will be back soon.

    Re: What is the most powerful nation in Europe?

    Its really all about the balance of power, in europe. There are a lot of countries and each are powerful in their own right. I think its at a point that, in a war, no one would win and both sides would lose.

    No one could invade GB. Hitler tried it, he failed, and he had Vichy France and most of Europe under his control. The last time anyone ever successfully invaded England was in the battle of Hastings almost a thousand years ago.

    Germany could easily kill France though, although it would hurt them too because France is growing fast economically since they have become more pro-business.

    No one could invade Switzerland, way too mountainous and they hold the world's money.

    Poland was fall to anyone, always.

    Basically, it would be like WW1 or WW2, Germany is the only nation with both an adequate military and an excellent economy; however, everyone would destroy them if they ever decided to invade another country.

    In the context of a hegemony, I agree with you. No Europerean Nation will be able to establish a hegemony over the others in our lifetime. But in relation to which country is strongest, from your analysis, it seems to be Germany, correct?

    After the US, France possesses the most advanced military technology and military industry. Ahead of the UK and possibly Israel and Russia/China.
    Europe is illegally occupied by the US
