Europe Summed Up In A Sentence

Europeans - the nonchalant effete of the West. A sentence in this story about a high-rise fire in Dubai sums them up well:
A high-rise apartment building under construction caught fire Thursday, injuring up to 25 workers and trapping others in thick smoke as rescue crews scrambled to reach them. Two witnesses said they saw a man fall from one of the 37-story building's upper floors, but police and fire officials refused to comment. Hospital officials said three laborers were in serious condition.

"Some of the workers were trying to climb down on cables. One guy in red was trying to climb down and then he just fell. It was horrible," said Louise Olson, 25, from Denmark, who watched from her whirlpool bath in a high-rise that faces the burning tower.
Yet they have the unmitigated gall to call us callous and unconcerned with the world outside of America.
