Belgium: the quasi-nation a symbol of the ills of Europe

In Response To: Zero Hedge on the massive data leak on the world elites and their secret money-laundering shell companies (corrected) (MrFusion)
Belgium has a King, a principal and a flag which will march to the Euro 2016 (Italy's round ...), but in fact consists of two nations: the Flemish Flanders to the north, mostly Catholic with some Protestant area; French-speaking Wallonia in the south, the Catholic culture.
The "culture" is necessary because these days with the faith in Europe need to be cautious: the squares and fervent steeples, today remains the arid footprint of an old continent, so committed to escape from himself by not having time even to remember.
The first difference you notice in Belgium, in fact, are linguistic. Flanders using the Flemish, Dutch spoken with scraping; in French speaking Wallonia. The fiscal and economic distinctions beyond the folklore have seriously undermined the unity of the country in recent years, for now dozing in the belly of the policy, now taken by other emergencies. The federal reform of the State was actually born on that basis if there are a lot of things but not seen, Belgium turns in reverse: you see, but one wonders if there is still.
Charleroi airport, under bomb threat March 23, just proceed north to get an idea. Highway signs indicate Ghent until it Wallonia; from a certain km onwards reads Gent, mix of Flemish genius and madness Punkabbestia.
Along the coast of Ostend, intact and pageants German bunkers speak of the past, which in these parts is at home. Belgium is a table, a country with no galleries, but who knows the dark. There is no solution between the plains and the North Sea, gray and restless as the soul off of a community that has dragged on without giving a sense, without expecting a future.
Who better than this flat land is Europe? Belgium is a line and a metaphor; an old page full of tears.
Coming down from the Flemish coast, the signals indicate Doornik better known as Tournai, old glory of the country. Written say a lot about the walls existing between Belgians in Flanders the signs to Paris and Lille are written in Dutch, but also in French; those for Wallonia instead only in the Flemish ...
It must be fate: this land is the cradle of the contradictions of a Europe capable of splitting on anything but on the certainty of his own end ...
Before you head south, from Veurne we lose ourselves for the campaign at the height of Ypres, the city that gives name to mustard gas. Be devastated and crossed is a bit 'the fate of Belgium, wedged between two giants: the green plains between the Meuse and the Scheldt the war also came in '40 when the Fall Gelb German humbled the Allied armies. Here the History always comes back. Vertically between Sedan and Verdun the beautiful countryside is an open page on centuries of scars. Here Belgium and France come together, they repel, stand and look alike: depends on the village depends on the kilometer. This country is so: you can also discuss among huitante and quatre-vingt ... because we are in the heart of the smartest continent, we are in Europe.
It should not be a case that the Council bodies and the European Commission are right in Brussels, the bilingual capital of a nation that at times recalls. It should not be a case that even in Brussels, on Boulevard Leopold III, there is the NATO Headquarters, the Walloons are keen to call OTAN, like the French. After all, Belgium is a founding country of both: the European Union and the Atlantic Alliance.
Watching from Belgium the numbers say so many things: 28 NATO members, 28 members of the EU. Are only 6 countries that are not members of the Alliance Union: Canada and the United States to geography; Norway and Iceland by choice; Turkey and Albania on the waiting list. And more and 6 EU nations that are not in NATO: removed the neutral Sweden and Austria and Finland already courted (see article), Ireland, Cyprus and Malta do not seem able to change the planet ...
There is a link between the torpor of this country, nothing of Europe and the numerical coincidences?
We can say that here we decide many things that happen in the world, but none of those we meet helps to take them. The vocation of Belgium actually is this: stand in the center of everything, not to mention much. It will be the size will be the neighbors, or perhaps they will be the ones far away, who knows ...
Just look at the military instrument to get an idea. Belgium has a long tradition of excellence and a qualitative standard, but there are questions on the mission of its equipment: except for the Partenariat Militaire with the Democratic Republic of Congo linked to historical reasons and a stake in Mali, Belgium was seeking and it acts paintings absolutely alien from its natural geopolitical. One wonders whether such missions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Estonia and Operation Desert Falcon against the Islamic State (after the attacks in Brussels loopthrough by sending other F-16) was announced fall in a logical essential to their interests. After the attacks of Brussels and the discovery of the internal branch of the Islamist terrorism the question makes even more sense.
Reflection is necessary. The foreign policy of the Europeans must regardless of their nationality? The refrain that alone it has little value until at some point, especially if a European identity will replace that of individual states was never born. It can bet that if there was still a culture of sovereignty and had not demonized the idea of defense and national interest, many European countries would weigh even more than many so-called emerging powers: to budget for expertise, for capacity.
But a country where even the police shows bilingual characters, forced to mobilize soldiers to distant missions and to leave at the same time whole areas of its territory outside the law, it can still be said to be sovereign?
Geopolitical scenarios change over the decades as well as how to handle them, but one wonders what remains of a nation if it is not able to survive the second autonomous choices.
Going away through the green hills of Hainaut we would say "à bientôt Belgique" .... or "Toet ziens wi!" ... but it depends from the other person.
The reflections on Belgium with distinct tones and shades are worth for us and for everyone else in Europe. The columns that have formed are hanging by a slender thread, straight direct and less visible to the eyes of an awareness now about to become extinct.
This is why EU is fun.
If you dig deeper you will find that EU is an Nazi project gone quite good. Now that US is fully operational Third Reich.
