Why I'm glad the French voted no

I've been thinking about why I feel this sense of relief that the French voted no and that the Dutch almost certainly will too. The answer comes in something a French person -- yes, a French person -- said when the Berlin Wall fell. It was something along the lines of "We love the Germans. We love them so much that we are much happier when there are two Germanies, not just one." In other words, one prefers those who might march against one to be fragmented and not united. I feel the same way about the hostile-to-America Europeans. I prefer their disarray to their potential unity.
