    A geographical oddity
    For all the fuss and muss that Europeans have made over the bag-and-tag methodology applied to those visiting the country, it seems that they should have directed their ire towards their enlightened leaders more than towards a nation thousands of miles away.

    A stone's throw from the White House.
    Seems like a good idea to me. Perhaps visas should be required, as well, as per travel to Russia.

    Isn't that why they were mad, because their leaders were considering the same things they didn't like that were happening here? Doesn't mean they excuse it when it's their leaders. And we can still be mad as well. Even if other nations do it, doesn't make it right.

    It's also killing tourism in some places.

    still a stupid idea

    not that it isn't even clear if the proposal get's through or not/ if it incompatible with european law (according to the juristic department of the EU ministry council ... or something like that)

    also there have already been criticism from germany already
