Smelling Salts for the EU? 

The foreign ministers of France and Germany, the foreign secretary of Britain and the EU's High Representative write an op-ed piece in today's Wall Street Journal elucidating the current frozen negotiations with Iran over their cat and mouse game with the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. It is clear that they are laying the groundwork for referring the matter to the UN Security Council, which they admit should have happened over 2 years ago according to IAEA rules. Like that matters.

Are the Europeans, ever conciliatory and oriented towards appeasing Iran, finally losing patience? Perhaps. But they don't like being embarrassed, and they are blushing at the moment because Iran is definitely making them look ridiculous.

If I were to guess, Iran will shortly make a magnanimous gesture to lure the Europeans back to the cat and mouse game. Like do what they said they were going to do. Until the next time they break an agreement.

Reading this:

Thursday's Daily Briefing on Iran

It appears Iran is off the hook again, scott free.

Everyone knows the U.S. can't do anything militarly and that Irael has its hands full also.

Iran gets what it wants, more time to build their bomb[s] and buy more missiles.

Everybody knows, nobody admits...

They have outfoxed the world. Again.

Everyone also knows that Iran is expert in the practice of taqiyya. What is hard to tell is how long the Europeans will continue to dance when asked.

I ran across an amazing piece on the French foreign minister. Blew my mind that anyone with his level of ignorance is actually in charge of more than a street broom.

It's a French Thing

I wonder how long it took for the Israelis to get over their shock.

And to think, this guy is negotiating with Iran.
