European analyst: Europe is a bunch of spineless wusses

Leon de Winter on Europeans' refusal to threaten, or even consider, military options under any conditions:
Europe could have suppressed the Iranian threat if it had convinced the mullahs two years ago that it was willing to contemplate military options. Only Europe lacks core values that it holds sacrosanct and that it's willing to defend at the highest cost. It will continue to operate on the diplomatic field and cling to soft power even though this is the path of certain defeat when confronted with power players burning with geopolitical and religious ambitions.
Leon de Winter. As an aficionado of pen names, I like that one. Only I think it's his real name.
