    We are talking about an entire continent unable to defend itself. And these neutered poodles have disdain for the US? Oh, that’s precious.

    How can any of these western European nations raise a decent army? Armies are drawn from the segment of the population of young men 18-25 years old. Since 1995, the birth rate among indigenous European women has been around 1.3 per woman of child bearing age while among Muslim women it’s around 4.5. Europe as we knew it is done, probably by the mid 2030s as Muslim comminities will form break away provinces living outside the realm of European law. How will these “host nations” stop them?
