    The UN is telling us Iran isn't going to cooperate? Maybe they will also tell us next that North Korea, isn't going to cooperate either.

    The UN is a corrupt, useless organization than can't tell it's ass from a hole in the ground without some kind of kickback first.

    Respect the UN flag:

    While expected, the Iranian failure to comply with the wishes of the international community ensures that there will be some very dark days ahead. Sanctions will not work any better against Iran than they did against Iraq. In the end, there will be military confrontation. The only question is how long should we wait until the cruise missiles fly? Each day that we wait Iran proxies kill more Americans in Iraq. Each day that we wait Iranian proxies threatening Israel get stronger and more entrenched. Iran is in the grip of religious maniacs (every bit as crazy as the Taliban) and its population will not be able to break free without help. The cost of that help, particularly for the US, will be huge. Are you ready to pay a $2 per gallon premium at the pump when Iranian crude falls off the world market after an attack on its nuke facilities? How much of an increase in crude prices will be necessary to drive the US and world economies into recession? We are going to find out. One thing is for sure, we cannot allow the madmen in Iran to possess nukes, no matter what the price. There are dark days ahead.

    The Russians and Chinese are delighted with the fact that the US will ultimately be forced to strike Iranian nuke facilities. Since they have no oil, the Chinese will be less pleased than the Russians, but they will be happy that the US must spend more blood and treasure in the Middle East. Expect zero help from the Russians and Chinese on the Iran nuke issue. They see it as in their interest to bleed the US and the West. Thus, when diplomatic efforts fail (as they already have) there must be consequences for not only the Iranians but also the Russians and the Chinese. In the absence of Chinese cooperation on this issue we should transfer defensive and offensive weaponry to Taiwan. Further, we can invest in the ultimate Chinese nightmare and encourage Japan to develop its own nuclear arsenal. Two can play the Chinese game. We can make the loss of their oil investments in Iran seem like chump change. In the absence of Russian cooperation on Iran we should withdraw all financial investment from the new Soviets and block their financial transactions whenever possible. We should, for example, kill any chance of their entrance into the WTO until they start to behave rationally regarding Iran. The irony is that while we are number one on the Iranian hit list, the Russians are not too far behind. The Iranians would be thrilled to cause terrorism and promote separatism in Southern Russia. What will be the consequences for Iran? They will be on the wrong end of many explosive devices and receive a rapid trip to the 1300s. Further, we should, right now, fund and arm Iranian opposition groups. Through secret channels we should assure the Iranian leadership that when we are forced to attack that they, personally, will be the goal of our forces. Moreover, we should tell the Iranian leadership that if we are forced to attack, then we will occupy their oil fields in perpetuity, i.e., they will never get them back.

    I don't think the US is going to bomb Iran.

    So after the sanctions fail and all the useless diplomatic bs has played out, you think the US will do nothing? I disagree. The consequences of the lunatic Iran regime obtaining nukes are too horrible to contemplate. In the end, we will have no choice. This fact absolutely delights the new Soviets. Who are, of course, the rats responsible for both NK and Iranian nuke programs. The French were responsible for the Iraqi reactor bombed by the Israelis. Out of concern for the French evil-technos building the Iraqi reactor, the Israelis bombed on a Sunday when they knew the French "technicians" would not be there. They should have bombed on a Monday, since the French were really enemy combatants. Anyway, the point of my post above is that the Russians and the Chinese must receive their just consequences for failing to help curb the Iranian obsession with nukes. Both countries will act to water down any UNSC sanctions against the Iranians. They cannot be allowed to get away with that without paying a very heavy price.
