Guess Soros will be king of Eastern Europe and we will have even less support. Watch him take Bulgaria and they will refuse US posts there too. Why are people so stupid to think Soros represents Angl-Saxon West, just because it's the "West"? He represents the Franco-Germanic-Spanish West and that's no friend of ours. Stupid is as stupid does, just push the right key-word/phobia buttons and people will give their souls to defend Soros' plans.
