I'm not sure exactly what your test proves here, are you really that surprised that you got offered sex for money in Amsterdam?
I also travel quite some myself and the only time I got approached by a pimp was in Lloret de Mar, but that's basically an open-air brothel.

On a side note, being from Milan myself, could you elaborate on the "hard to tell"? Just curious.

Uh, give another go at history. The British army was the homeland army in the US and the actual resident armed force. Yours was a secession war that effectively created your national identity (or officialized it, depends on the point of view). The only real foreign attack you had on your soil was Pearl Harbor, and that wasn't an invasion.

Fine, but give me a democratic EU. I want a say in what the European Commission decides, I want to finally understand whatever the Council of European Union is (seriously, nobody seems to know), I want a democratic European Parliament with the power of legislative initiative. Anything else is a nice-looking dictatorship.
