A great read, but he does not take into account the flood of Muslim immigration into Europe, which will easily overcome the impact that distaste for childbearing has had on Euro-pop. Old Europe will then be a threat to us, perhaps within a couple of decades, because it will be Dar al Islam.
Or, perhaps it won't be an Islamic threat for awhile. Beating up on the native Euros will keep the new immigrants busy for awhile.
What a charming thought.

Only a week ago I saw a French poster on another discussion board reminisce -- seriously! -- about the good old days when the court of Charlemagne (today's France and Germany) maintained cordial relations with the caliph Haroun al-Rashid in Baghdad, exchanging emissaries bearing gifts.
Many French are so deluded, it isn't funny. In their minds, the counterweight to U.S. power will be French brains, German engineering, Arab manpower, and Gulf oil money.
To them, this notion is entirely sane.
