Right Intention: More Trouble For Europe

More Trouble For Europe

This is not good:

Islamic terror groups are becoming increasingly active in Germany and coordinating with militants across Europe to recruit fighters to join the insurgency in Iraq, equipping them with fake passports, money and medical supplies, security officials say.

European citizens have undoubtedly killed US soldiers in Iraq. Some would argue that its our own fault for being in Iraq in the first place. I would say that Europe's inability to assimilate its own population is more to blame.

But put aside the death wish of certain European citizens for the moment. As the next item suggests, Europe has a bigger problem.

There's only sketchy evidence that any of the recruited radicals have returned to Europe from fighting in Iraq, but that remains a top fear, Tophoven said.

"The big threat is that they will eventually come back to European countries and they will come back with an image, with a reputation as heroes who fought the unbelievers, as it was in the war against the former Soviet Union in Afghanistan," he said.

"If they do, they come back from Iraq trained, they know how to fight, they know how to do an ambush, how to make a bomb, and so on, and intelligence is afraid of these developments."


Bingo. Welcome to the terror war, Europe. Again, many will affix blame to the US. But that is false. The danger to Europe was very real long before we liberated Iraq.

The danger was there before we "liberated" (I'll go with your misnomer) Iraq?

What exactly does that mean? There's ALWAYS danger. But our "liberation" of Iraq has increased the anti-western hatred by Muslims by a thousandfold.

There's danger that my next door neighbor will come to my house and kick my ass. Probably won't happen, but could. Now, if I go over there and beat down their door, disrespect their family, fondle the women in their house, piss on their furniture, and then leave (and then expect me to thank them for "liberating" them), I can SURELY expect that they'll be knocking on my door to kick my ass then.

The danger from islamist fascists, to be more precise.

Where is this extra hatred from muslims that the left always carps about? Would that be the Iraqis dancing in the streets because they finally had free elections? Or the Lebanese demonstrating against Syria? Who exactly? And how much more hatred can there be when most of the Middle East applauded the hijackers on 9/11?

And if that's the left's view on our military's actions in Iraq then its little wonder the military votes 80% Republican.
