Protection? Solidarity? Not from the EU!

Bulgaria and Romania have become the full members of the European Union on January 1st. As one of their first actions, Bulgarian memebers of the European Parliament proposed that the European comission intervenes on behalf of the Bulgarian nurses sentenced to death in Lybia. They recieved quite an unpleaseant surprise. Apparently, their new friends are not eager to help them. They are much more concerned with doing business with the Lybian governement then with lives of it's new citizens, or as they so eloquently put it:

"Trying to force the [Benghazi] issue would have the sole effect of destroying rather than strengthening Euro-Mediterranean relations."

In other words, the Bulgarian medical workers were told to drop dead. Literally. I hope Bulgarian citizens finally realize what they signed up on.
