Very well written, perceptive article. Once again, Europe is interested only in refusing to face a problem.
In the late '70s, I was in an audience of naval officers being addressed by Secretary of the Navy J. William Middendorf. He had just returned from a tour of Europe and found little there to cause optimism. His perception was that Europeans only worry about danger when “They see a man with a gun in their garden.” The present danger to them is even worse, and they don’t realize it.
Even worse, here in America, we refuse to wake up. Any rational country should be vigorously prosecuting a war against all our enemies. Iraq and Afghanistan are only a start. Syria and Iran need to be warned once, in plain undiplomatic language, that we are fed up. If they don’t heed same, there should be extreme consequences.p>Spokesmen for the left in America should be mocked when they commit treason, i.e., Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, etc. Both of these two need treatment for their current mental illness. Of course, most Americans just sit idly by and dismiss all this, because we are nearly as meek as the Europeans. Sadly, it will take a second attack to wake up America. br> — unsigned /p>
Mr. Babbin ponders, “It’s hard to gauge who is the greater threat to freedom.” Then he asks, “Is it the cowards of Europe or the radical Islamists of the Middle East?”p>Shouldn’t we also include politically correct, liberal establishment within our own sovereign borders, as well as the mainstream news media, be it domestic or foreign? br> — C.
