Yet Another Abandoning?

The European Union is looking less and less like a union these days. There was a sense that after World War II, Western Europe abandoned their Eastern brothers to the iron fist of the Soviet Union. It wasn't like there was much that could have been done, but the feeling of regret stuck. I wonder if that is on anyone's mind as the major Western powers once again go deaf to the concerns of Eastern Europe. I wonder what the currency, stock and bond trading will look like on Monday morning in country's like Hungary and Latvia which are teetering on the edge of complete economic collapse. Western Europe again demonstrates its penchant for supporting any worthy cause unless there's actually a cost involved. Canadian and American troops have learned that lesson in Afghanistan and now the economies of Eastern Europe face the same cold shoulder. What happened to fraternity and solidarity in Europe?
