Eclectic Floridian: Attention! Western Europe! Achtung!

Attention! Western Europe! Achtung!

What does it take for France, Germany and Russia to realize that they are also in the war on terrorism?

The London bombings simply show that fanatics do not rule civilized nations.

We must recognize that it is impossible to protect all our infrastructure from attack by amoral fanatics. Therefore, we must detect and eliminate these monsters! When we have shown sufficient resolve in this effort, their recruitment efforts fail.

In particular, France, Germany and Russia are in aid of the fanatic efforts through their refusal to take substantive action in resistance.

France, Germany & Russia childishly refuse substantive help in the effort to crush fanatic bombers, because they are still upset about the loss of their lucrative contracts with Saddam's regime. If they do not "get over it" and help in this effort they are, in effect, aiding terrorism. If that continues to be the case I advocate that the US withdraw from NATO.

You may or may not like the way the US entered Iraq and Afganistan, but the results appear to be positive to the people of those nations if you read their weblogs..
  • France: How many troops does it take to defend Paris? No one knows ... it's never been tried! --- Get some guts and help!
  • Germany: You showed lots ot guts in defense of a lousy offensive ... try doing the same in defense of a noble objective.
  • Russia: You have always defended yourselves admirably ... now help defend yourselves and the rest of us too!

NATO serves a particular purpose. It is a DEFENSIVE alliance of the free world. No state would dare attempt to invade a NATO country. It is suicide. This is actually a major achievement in world history. The US pulling out of this wonderful alliance would be a stupid move, in my opinion. Your gripe is that NATO is not an OFFENSIVE alliance. But I think that it is good that NATO is not an offensive alliance. Because we want more countries to join NATO, but without spooking Russia.

Offensive operations are best left to a coalition of the willing. The countries in such a coalition change depending on the political party in power. We don't yet have consensus for when to wage an offensive war.
