    I'm not sure how far they'd go.

    I think the EU would be more than happy to gain influence at the expense of the United States, but at the same time, I think most EU members understand that they share certain values with the United States.

    So the struggle will still be there, but it may be more of relationship between rivals who manage to stay on reasonably friendly terms rather than enemies.  At least I hope so.

      and on a more practical level, Europe has nowhere near the military power or the unity needed to take over the place of the USA.

      And we're quite aware of that, so yeah, the EU will probably demand more regulation and oversight (something you'd have to do anyway to regain the confidence of the investors), but other than that we're pretty much going to leave you alone.

      A spanking? Nah, more of a slap on the fingers...
