Not joining, it would be too expensive. But we accept land swaps!
We are giving up the entire island to be used as a military base, in exchange for all of us moving to Arizona (cause of the climate, we wouldn't survive further north).

NATO: the European Union that constantly nags you're not spending even huger amounts on the military and doesn't improve the life of the inhabitants of its member states.

Gotta counter Vlad the Impaler and his fanboys somehow. This is containment 2.0.

Implying the EU does.

Just to clarify this is nothing but ironic shitposting; I'm not really rabidly pro-NATO nor anti-EU.

Sounds good to me as long as they get rid of their racist police first who would have you deported for looking Mexican.

Is there any chance we could stop having to appeal to one branch of the mafia to protect us from another branch of the mafia

I am shocked a place like that has and advertises vegetarian meal options. Isn't vegetarianism just for soy-boys?

That a group of nations with 13 times the GDP of Russia cannot figure out how to defend itself from Vlad without transatlantic help is a failure of imagination of the highest order.

Nah, there're probably some high-caste Gujaratis who own some hotels nearby.

Does anyone have the slightest clue what the fuck this ugly thing is supposed to be? I mean in the lower right corner. What is it? A pair of rocks? One of those optical illusions that looks like a vase? A boot stamping on a human face, forever?

Perhaps you would like to suggest a solution to them. Their headquarters is in Brussels.

A growing number of them actually quite like Vlad, though. Case in point. And others don't like Vlad, but very much like the US.
Please correct my mistakes!

Barring a health crisis, Bernie Sanders will be elected president of the United States in 2020. You heard it first here.

I think it might be footprints from army boots, perhaps representing a march towards either communism or Nazism, to which the artist's reaction may be summarized in the top left corner.

The little rocket man meets the dotard. This must be the most bizarre political event I've witnessed in my life.
