At the security conference attended by all EU Ministers for the Interior, with special guest stars from the US Department for Homeland Security, we got to know more about... nothing, really. Other than of course "there is a threat".
That's right. The Americans issue warnings, kickstart almost a fucking panic across Europe, and they then don't even share whatever information they might be having.
Gosh. What is this? The Bush years?
Oh, wait... it's an election again in the USA. Got to keep the Americans afraid. Booo! Booo! Are you afraid now? Vote for us! We keep you safe! From the evil world outside! Booo! Booo!
I know that Hollywood is so creatively bankrupt that they remake shit now on a three-year cycle, sure, but for some reason I had held out hope that at least the politics would have changed a little, just a bit, you know, a tiny bit...
But nope. Welcome to the Chris Nolan production of
OBAMA BEGINS: THE BUSH KNIGHT.
