Shocker: EU puts interests before international law

This is a really good article questioning the EUs real commitment to international law.  I highly recommend you read it.  Ill quote the most important part:

In fact, Europe’s commitment to international law is largely rhetorical. Like the Bush administration, Europeans obey international law when it advances their interests and discard it when it does not.

This should be the sort of “duh” statement that everyone already knows..but alas in our world that isn’t that case.  Europe really has done an excellent job of playing lip service to international law while disregarding it at the same time.   Next time the EUers are getting sanctimonious over some issue or another, just remember the above quote.
