As for driving in, the risk is remote
Totally disagree, France is pissed with Belguim for the terrorists it harbours and the ease with which they can drive intothe country, expect road border controls to restart.

And then comes the issue: How will the other countries not affected by the possible visa restrictions, i.e. the EU/Schengen countries remaning in the Visa Waiver Programme, react? If only 5 out of the 26 countries are affected then I have trouble seeing a common reaction against the US from then Schengen area.
Yes, huge issue especially as 3 of the top 4 populous / GDP nations are involved but the smaller nations are not. UK may have a big hand in how this is resolved if it ends up in a QVM situation even though they are not Schengen they are in the visa scheme.

Quite strange not to see the UK included in this affair after the infamous British / Jamaican citizen who tried to set his shoes on fire on board a plane a few years ago.
He had the correct documentation.. The UK actually performed a mass passport cancellation a few years ago and keeps tight hold of access to them so they are not a sinner in this issue.

Absolutely. And the reciprocation would be EU-wide.
It really depends on what kind of law / agreement enables this as this is not a blanket issue affecting the whole EU.
|Quoting SKAirbus (Reply 40):|
I travel a lot inside the Schengen area and very rarely have my ID checked. In fact it flabbergasts me that in the current environment anyone can board a flight even if the ticket isn't in their name. The only exception to this rule I have seen is in Italy where they ask for ID before boarding domestic flights.
Yes, its wrong.
|Quoting mjoelnir (Reply 42):|
Most of the arguments here are nonsense. What has a paperless Syrian refugee to do with somebody travelling with a valid European passport?
The issue is he can easily become a papered refugee and travel where ever he wants on false papers; this is / should be of genuine concern.
