Western Europe finds its cajones?
This is hardly a surprise:
A SERIOUS rift opened yesterday between Russia and the West over Iran's nuclear program after Moscow floated a last-minute plan to allow Tehran to make small quantities of nuclear fuel.The Russian leadership is little more than a self-interested triangulator. What is surprising is that Western Europe has thus far stayed on board with the U.S. Could it be that recent waves of Islamofascist violence in Western Europe is having an effect on their leadership?
The New York Times reported that the proposal prompted US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to telephone International Atomic Energy Agency director Mohamed ElBaradei to make clear that Washington could not support the Russian plan.
