Yours too (and we did fly a Belgian astronaut on the shuttle).

Why is it Belgium (or the EU or ESA) doesn't fly their own astronauts?

Jim's original point was the current lack of Russian missions beyond
Earth orbit, which, for the (successor to) the first country to fly such
missions, is striking, given all the other players in the space (India,
China, Japan, ESA, USA; am I forgetting anyone?).
