Also another point to bear in mind is that Europeans feel a lot more venerable than Americans for two reasons:
Most European counties have been directly affected and greatly damaged by recent global wars
They are in much more close proximity to the Middle east
This is one of the reasons a lot of Europeans are against the war in Middle east, along with the fact that the reasons for invading Iraq have now been revealed to be BS, I think Europeans are more in fear of reprisal attacks from middle eastern fundamentalists, for America’s actions in the Middle east
Most Europeans hope a problem goes away without their having to confront it.
Look at the French hiding behind the Maginot Line while Poland got raped. Poland and France had an ironclad treaty that one would attack Germany the moment the other was attacked. Yeah…
If you think that terrorism will go away without confronting it, you are doing a modern Maginot Line.
Some fresh-faced clear eyed teenage boys then have to die on a Normandy beach (this time maybe a Cornwall beach?) for your cowardice.
Can you please explain in detail with references to source information, how invading Iraq is going to deal with the problem of Islamic Extremists committing terrorists attacks on western countries.
Why? We’ve been over that stuff many times. One person presents a sourced argument, someone responds with their sourced argument, and on and on.
Look, Saddam wanted to close the Straits and get Euros to replace dollars when buying oil. We had to hit them. There ARE more threats to the world than your Muslim neighbors whom you love so much.
You don’t think a global depression (which the Muslims would love) is terrorism?
If you want to see your real threat, read my thread about the interview with Lady Rothschild (If This doesn’t scare you,…). Her, I could truly hate.
