The Third Front

The United States is currently engaged in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The next front might not be Iran like many have been speculating but the European Union. The Wall Street Journal has an interesting article, U.S Sees Europe as Front Against Radical Islam. From the article:

The Bush administration has quietly opened what senior officials consider a third front in a global campaign against Islamist extremism, this one aimed at the rising threat from Europe.

According to the article some officials are concerned that the next terrorist attack might be perpetrated by a “terrorist bearing a European passport.” In the past few years London and Madrid have been attacked, France’s marginalized Muslim youth have held violent protests, and lest not forget the protests regarding the Danish Mohamed cartoons.
