I feel bad about that. Sorry, the US has **** poor foreign policy. In regard to a lot of countries, regardless of who is in power at the time too. I've always wanted to visit Iran, but it is incredibly difficult. I know a lot of Europeans who have been and loved it.

You are incorrect. EU is in full support of the Balkan countries joining with a goal either 2025 or 2030 being set. Serbia isn't even as "poor" as members, like Bulgaria, that are already in the EU. Serbia has much better infrastructure and overall, better state.

EU no longer agrees on Balkan membership guarantee, diplomats say

After the French veto: The new scramble for the Western Balkans

EU blocks Albania and North Macedonia membership bids

Progress stalls on EU entry for Western Balkans nations

Umm lol, Serbia are always late for the party but call it backstabbing. The eu stopped being cool around 2005-2010, no one should want to join the EU in 2021...it's like planning to join Nazy Germany and thinking it's cool and innovative...hell even calling covid-19 a "novel" virus seems weird in the news recently.

I think countries within the European Union should hold referendum whether to completely federalize into single European sovereign nation. Let’s face it. individual European countries simply aren’t capable of competing at the global stage in the long run…

The following 14 countries are part of the Eurozone, NATO AND Schengen Area so they are the most “ready” to join the Superstate:
Belgium
Estonia
France
Germany
Greece
Italy
Latvia
Lithuania
Luxembourg
Netherlands
Portugal
Slovakia
Slovenia
Spain

Yes they should so they would realise how unpopular the idea is and put it to rest.

Its coming anyway, referendum's or not! The people in the EU are slowly but surely being forced into a European superstate whether they like it or not, even if any of the above mentioned countries wanted to leave they would find it almost impossible! Just look at the way the EU has responded to the UK leaving and how hard they've tried to make if for the UK to go its own way and the UK is one of the bigger more economically powerful European nations, also imagine how much more difficult it would have been if the UK was using the Euro, the UK also benefits from being an island, look at the problems the Poles are having as we speak. If any of the above countries tried to leave the Euro now they would find it exceptionally hard, the sovereignty of European countries has been and is continuing to be taken away piece by piece by the EU and I feel its already now at the 'no return' tipping point!

We'll see ... we'll see. China needs to do a major recalibration. Things aren't looking so good since COVID (and OMNICRON in particular) came to town. Also, like India, China needs to be very worried about the insane White Russian dominating the world of dictators. The plan for global domination has now run seriously amok!
