Iranian honchos continue to insist on palavers re their nuclear ambitions. But diplomacy isn't their strong point, unless one considers takin...

Re: 'Europeans won’t fight" - Spengler.

http://www.atimes.com/article/natos-problem-is-that-europeans-wont-fight/ (quote) Trump’s remonstrations will fall on deaf ears. Why should Europeans spend money on arms, when they have no intention of using them? Spengler is right on. "It is refreshing to hear an American president call the Europe...
