From Russia, With Love

As if the slowly disintegrating European Union did not have enough to worry about, it was revealed at the end of last week that former members of the Russian military have for months, if not years, been providing the country of Iran with information on how to obtain technology needed to produce missiles capable of striking European capitals, such as Berlin, Rome, and Athens. Now here is the real question – what will be the European Union’s course of action in light of this information? Will it be bringing the hammer down on Iran hard and force them to relinquish their efforts to build a nuclear reactor in their country or, as I suspect it will be, fresh rounds of Chamberlain-esque negotiations?
