I like the war room style black/green map in the beginning. It’d be cool if it remained in that style for the whole video!

This is essentially a modern battle between the United States and Fortress Europe.

Love the idea of the UK being neutral, inviting the danes and Swiss round for a few pints and drunkenly lobbing a few missiles at France when they aren't looking, just for old times sake

Looking through these comments, grown men with their heart set on a hypothetical war which will never happen. The US is more likely to have another civil war than to fight the EU.

Glad the relationships between EU and US are so good at the moment. Friendship is always better than war (maybe not as exciting in YouTube videos though). Especially now that China and Russia become more aggressive.
