Old Europe in a tween's body - Michael Barone: "Interestingly, a recent poll shows that Europeans say they would support airstrikes against nuclear-armed Iran. But most Europeans don't want their countries to spend more on defense. They evidently want the United States to do the dirty work of eliminating Iranian nuclear weapons–and to be free to criticize that action themselves. There is a word for this combination of attitudes: adolescent. Teenagers expect their parents to protect them. But they want to be able to gripe about it anyway." (Hat tip: New England Republican)

That's 100& correct. Nothing but a bunch of freeloaders for more than 60 years now.
