Tom, I really do understand your frustration with Europe. Sometimes I do think they are getting what they deserve due to their craven policies. However, we must think about this objectively and without emotion.

There is no benefit to the U.S. for Europe to fall to Islamofacism. Europe has many resources; Europe also has quite a few nukes. Can you imagine all of this in the hands of the Islamists?
