A way to deal with our renegade, so-called "allies", like Britain: Move our embassies, to promote "peace"

Since our "allies" such as the UK, France and Germany all voted at the UN in a clearly anti-American vote about where we choose to locate our embassy in Israel, it's time to re-examine where we locate our embassies in those countries.

UK -- How about locating it in Cardiff, or Newcastle, Belfast or Edinburgh? Why should we have to fight traffic and dodge terrorists in London? It's a "security" concern, you know; and having our embassy in London might be the very thing that has slowed down the Brexit process.

France -- Certainly, the embassy should be on the Riviera, so we can commute from there by yacht to Tel Aviv. Again, it's for security reasons -- Paris is a terrorist hellhole, like London.

Germany -- How about Heidelberg, so we can be closer to our troops there?

Italy -- definitely Venice.

You get the picture. Europe is plagued by terrorism; and there can be no question that it's because we have located our embassies there in their capitols.
