Yep, you're wrong, most of what you've posted here is not correct.
There may not be one harmonised standard in Europe however some countries do issue and require flight dispatch/flight operations officer licences issued by the national regulator and operate a system similar
to FAA style flight dispatch whether they are required by the local regulatory authority or not. They do this because it is a good thing to do. You've heard of KLM?? ; all are trained to FAA standards.
Anything that requires you to study and learn something new always has value and is a foundation on which to build.
Flight dispatchers in Europe do exist and working as one certainly is not like working as an assistant. I am sure the numerous, licensed, professional and experienced people out there who are serious about this profession would disagree with you 100%.
I don't know where you've gotten your info from but your source is highly subjective and not representative of the situation in Europe.
