EU momentarily contemplates the value of democracy

Behold the Blair effect that the Guardian filed under “Iraq”. Even though they have a habit of thinking the following subject is entirely unrelated.

The web edition of the European Voice articulates a continent suddenly realizing that courting tyranny for no good reason is a real bummer, no matter how much of your crap that they’ll buy:

« Invigorated by the EU's limited options in dealing with countries such as Belarus, a number of proposals are circulating in the Council of Ministers, European Commission and European Parliament on how to improve the EU's efforts to foment democracy abroad.»
”Invigorated” might be the wrong term – how about “looking stupid and helpless”.

All we are saying is give war a chance.
