The EU and the Muslim world may be on a collision course. This did not seem like the trend a mere 5 years ago when Muslim refugees (and non-refugees) flooded the EU in order to flee the Middle East. Ultimately, some in the EU are beginning to realize what a Trojan horse the unbridled immigration has become. But it may be deeper than that.
Turkey is one of the Muslim countries that is turning out to be more of an ally with other countries that are threatening the West. Iran has been severely weakened by the Trump administration, but now they are becoming closer with China. If there major issue has been financial, then China can very well be a major player in bringing their economic woes into a manageable situation.
Between Turkey, Iran, and China lining up to be rivals with the West, there is certainly a realignment at hand. The most interesting country of all is India. They are often considered a country that is not a major threat to anyone outside of Pakistan. But that is a big mistake. India and China together have an enormous percentage of the word population, and China has an enormous amount of financial control in the world.
It is important that we learn from previous world strife in Europe that what happens in Europe often has catastrophic consequences in the United States. The isolationist tendency that existed in the United States in the 1930’s was one of the reasons that World War II became the bloodiest war in world history. We must be careful that the United States not overlook struggles in Europe and dangerous tendencies from China. Otherwise, we may be in for a rude awakening in the coming decades.
