who would win?

There is a change of civilizations. Until now, European civilization destroyed by barbarians. Exceptions were not. Now faded Europe will be captured without firing a shot. In the words of the Libyan “revolution leader” Muammar Gaddafi, God has brought us to Europe on a silver platter. It publishes gloomy movie. The only thing it should be noted that this is all about <! – More -> tratsionalnoy European culture, including North America, including the United States and Canada. East is a delicate matter.
