Yes, they did participate in the Middle East Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, but European nations were unable to stop the destabilization of the Arab Spring or the Syrian War and suffered the plague of refugees thanks to the UN as it continues to try to advance UN Agenda 21.
Now terrorist attacks in the EU and the spread of ISIS needs to be addressed. The real enemy of Europe is the UN and the EU and Europe needs to quit the EU and the UN. NATO needs to be expanded by adding Israel and other Western-oriented countries on the continent.
The sole purpose of NATO since its founding was to protect Europe from the USSR, but now the emphasis needs to be shifted to combat terrorists and eradicate this threat.
