 File under: Govt of Iran 

#1 There may be a plan but it won't work. Most German companies are quietly bowing out. Iran is not worth the trouble.

#2 Maybe the muslim only communities in Germany can come up with cottage industries to trade for more halal items.

Thank you, European Conservative. I am very much looking forward to Frau Merkel also quietly bowing out after the next election. And I used to think so highly of her, too.

#4 Someone tell me, why are we still allied with them?

What I heard is our free, ruinously expensive military protection, combined with the massively unfair trade agreements that net Europe $170 billion a year (free college for all Americans $60 billion a year, Trump's wall $25 billion one time) buy us compliance with our policies.

It seems this is not so. Why are we paying for them? We're not even getting what we bribed them for. At this point, who can say that Europeans are anything but hostile to our interests?

Hey, I've got the solution. Just call them human shields and we can start murdering their civilians tomorrow. Like we did at Dresden. This one simple semantic reclassification makes it OK to kill as many as we need to fulfil our objectives. Warm up the B52s, I can't count how often Rantburgers call for them as a solution to our problems. Because mass murder works!

#5 @trailing wife

Unfortunately her (potential) successor is doing everything to enable a "Green" chancellor.

#6 Americans, thank your new Posner
For helpfully pointing out flaws in our
Foreign relations
Through cute imputations.
