The US has already had an unpleasant situation unleashed upon it, and is taking every action it can countenance in order to avoid more severe and more frequent reiterations of that situation. It will not feed an alligator wishing to dine upon it first; Europe has another motive for feeding the alligator; so it will eat them last. But the appetite of this alligator is insatiable, and, sooner or later, it will turn its all-devouring intentions upon the Europeans, too.
