Western Europe!?!?!?! you've got to be kidding! I've got relatives
there that still have Soviet Tank tracks on their Lawn!!!!

Well actually you probably consider that eastern Europe, but the
western countries all still have militaries and armed citizens to
some degree, perhaps you missed the recent post from one of our
Dutch members?

Canada? Last time I checked you still had a military, not to
mention armed citizens, not to mention a rather large and
extremely well armed neighbor to the south. If you think thats got
nothing to do with it, you're only kidding yourself.
