Europe Protects Baby Seals, We Protect Europe

The latest, urgent crisis to grip the European Union, and of course, a commission is needed to enforce the rules. From the BBC:

Trade in seal products would be allowed only where they came with guarantees that the animals did not suffer unnecessarily.

A certification scheme would be established including, if necessary, a distinctive label or mark, showing that a seal-trading country met strict conditions.

And all that I can think is that Europe has the luxury of fretting over baby seals because they’re secure in knowing that America will spend resources to protect baby Europeans should it come down to it. So why would they need a missile defense shield?
