The European Union’s Appeasement of Iran
Endless concessions didn't stop Hitler, nor will they stop the Mullahs. The Europeans however, are more than willing to overlook the fact Iran has been waging war against the U.S. and its allies for decades. It has provided roadside bombs to Iraqi and Afghan insurgents that killed and maimed American servicemen. Similarly, the Iranian regime has been attacking western shipping in the Persian Gulf since the mid-1980's, long before the nuclear deal with Iran was even a thought. Iran placed mines in the Persian Gulf in violation of international law. In 1988, one such mine struck the U.S. Navy guided missile frigate USS Samuel B. Roberts, injuring 10 U.S. sailors, and blowing a 15-foot wide hole in the vessel's hull.
