There is a nice response on that on:
http://www.heise.de/tp/deutsch/kolumnen/mar/13692/1.html

It is written in German so that can be a problem...
It says that allthough the facts stated are true,
the biggest problem Europe has and will have is its
indecisiveness. Which is true I think.
On the other hand the European Union is still
in 'progress' and one of its characteristics has
always its 'consensus solutions'. So when the
needs are the biggest the solutions tend to come.
However on this subject it may yake years.
