To appease Iran, not to appease Iran...

Filed under: Iran

According to OPEC, Iran is the fourth leading exporter of crude oil to Europe with Saudi Arabia, Russia and Venezuela the first, second and third leading oil exporters. What a terrific bunch of democratic, freedom loving countries!

On Saturday afternoon, Iran and Austria signed a 30 billion dollar agreement at the 12th international oil, gas and petrochemical exhibition held in Tehran. The event was attended by 797 domestic and 510 foreign companies from 35 countries.

What will Europeans do next? I bet on unimaginably lame approaches. Why sanction Iran hard when we can help mullahs prosper?
