Europe criticizes US for withdrawing troops from West Africa
Islamic terrorism in West Africa is centered in former French colonies. The French worry that if the militants aren't countered in Africa, they could spread murder and mayhem to France itself. And then there's the immigration concern. If backward countries like Mali, Niger, Chad, Burkina Faso, and Mauritania become failed states, a surge of African refugees could be bound for France and then throughout Europe.
When it comes to America, Europe sings Karl Marx's slogan: "from
each according to his ability; to each according to his
needs." What makes this especially pathetic is that Europe is
not impoverished. It's wealthy.
