MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said Wednesday that Europe can’t rely on the U.S. to fight the Islamic State and then sit back and criticize U.S. strategy.
Scarborough said he supports President Barack Obama in trying to bring Arab and European nations together to combat the terrorist group, and is “sick and tired of Europeans sitting back and doing nothing, turning the other cheek as Vladimir Putin kicks them in the face, time and time again.”
“Europe, this is your problem, too. It’s the Middle East’s problem. More Muslims are going to be killed by ISIS than Westerners. So if you guys are sitting back, waiting for us to carry your water again just so you can bitch and moan because you don’t like how we carry your water when we try to keep you safe, you know what, you’ve got another thing coming,” Scarborough said. “I think we need to let the world come to us, and ask us to carry their water again, like we’ve been doing for about 60 years now.”
