The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Dealing with Iran and Its Pretensions

Best Proposed Strategy, with rationale, seen to date:
Ignore Iran for the child that they are.  As someone once magnificently put it, Iran is like the youngster who has been used to sitting at "the kids table" during a major family get-together.  At the kid's table, if you stab your cousin Suzy with a fork and she cries, the grown-ups won't pay much attention.  They'll sush all of you and one of them might come over to see what is going on, but you'll usually get away with it.  But when you move up to "the grown-ups table" the rules most definitely change.  You cannot spit on Uncle Steve, or swear at Grandma, or stab your mom with a fork when you are sitting at the grown-ups table, because the grown-ups WILL notice, and one way or another, you will go down for that.  And you will go down hard.  The grown-up's table is the small group of nations with nuclear weapons.

Our friend from Chelmsford is more skeptical...

Marvelous "head in the sand" approach. Having kids playing with knives and matches doesn't mean you cancel your insurance or get treatment for your illnesses.
