Great Macron photo, EU and Turkey

I wish I were as smugly happy about EU decisions on Turkish sanctions.

See: Al Jazeera, “Europe’s stance on Turkey toughens with sanctions, weapons talk.”

If this is what Erdie came away with from the European Union meeting on Turkish sanctions, I don’t think there’s much to be happy about: EU must discard pressure from Greece, Greek Cypriots, says Erdoğan

Maybe he’ll be a bigger jerk over next few months and Europe can then take a more serious position on slapping his irresistibly slappable mug.
