Ah American politics.. there's really nothing more strange (and funny) to Europeans.
Ah, but the Belgium military and its many successes is funny to us, as long as we're making insults.
Fact is that most Europeans that think they understand American politics actually don't. It's almost like it's on a different continent or something.

To illustrate: most people in Holland were in favor of Obama, but had little knowledge of his ideas about gay marriage, euthanasia, social security, etc. They just kind of assumed he subscribed to the ideas of the average Dutchman...
