Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Candid: I can live with that.

Mean: Europe need America to defend it, says who? America? And who thinks Iran (or Russia, for that matter) is a direct military threat to Europe?

Snarky: don't mention the war!

Snarky2: if we're appeasing someone right now, it's the US.

reasoned: taking an interest in matters doesn't mean having a say in them, or even a right to have a say. The common foreign and security policy of the EU, constitutionally, must be agreed unanimously by the governments of the member states. The UN security  council can actually make decisions by qualified majority, by virtue of its constituent treaty.
