Europe is in the midst of disaster, only, they do not realize.
There are many countries that have joined in the fight, including France which has sent fighter planes to fight terrorism. What explanation do you have for America not joining those leaders who took the time to show their contempt for a group of terrorists that just killed 12 people over a lampoon, in addition to regularly beheading innocent people? Talk about "my way or the highway" thinking, and apparently Obama agrees with them! Why? He now looks bad before the civilized people of the world, but he doesn't represent the thinking of the majority of people in this country who are going to remember what stand he took if we are attacked! It would be ironic if a DC airport or a building in Washington becomes a target! Just saying....

The rather amateurish explanations are really astonishing from a PR standpoint, especially as the Obama Administration has been in office for almost 6 full years.
The first point lacks merit, as others with longstanding relationships with France were represented i.e., the UK and Germany.
The second point also lacks merit, as the presence of 40 world leaders or senior officials would result in extraordinary security precautions. Any additional U.S. security requirements would have been marginal in that context.
