A Blast from the Past

Giscard meets Schmidt:

SPIEGEL: Will Europe be among the global powers of the 21st century?
Giscard: Yes. It has what it takes. And we should give it an opportunity to become one.
Schmidt: I would be somewhat more cautious here. The European Union will hardly coalesce to become a genuine global power. And Europe doesn’t have to be a global power.

Giscard: We are the victims of a smear campaign that has its origins in the American banking system.

Prick. How he retains any reputation at all is an ongoing mystery.
