I read about the attacks in Lebanon, they were at the top of many European news sources until they were bumped by the Paris bombings. Why? because
simply, there is a cultural cohesion between Western Europe, the UK and America. Do you weep every day for the sexual trafficking in Latin America?
Genital mutilation in Somalia? Violence in the Ukraine or Asia?
I think about those, try to read all the world news I can every day but I take great offense at people like OP who claim we are somehow culturally
myopic or worse, bigoted, because we have a soft spot for our close allies. There are profound ties between America and France and separately, between
the UK and France, thus their pain is shared more profoundly by us. Let's not forget France allied with the American Colonies, these strong ties date
back to the 18th century.
Do not belittle that.
