Rumsfeld on Europe

US defence secretary Rumsfeld scorned old Europe for not tagging along obediently with the US in the campaign to overthrow the Iraqi regime of Saddam. He implied western Europe wasn't as much in touch with the world (or US ideas and interests) as the former Warsaw-pact states in central Europe. For a third generation US citizen he has a poor grasp of history. While most Europeans emigrated to the US because of poverty and lack of prospects a lot of others emigrated because they didn't like the way European society was changing and were afraid they couldn't preserve their way of life. Their conservatism has shaped the US to a large extend.
So when Rumsfeld mentions old Europe, is he referring to todays liberal western European societies or the present US society?
