Sorta Blogless Sunday Interlude: Iran and the UN

New York Times headline this Sunday: U.N. Scrutiny Won’t Make Iran Quit Nuclear Effort, President Says.

TEHRAN, Jan. 14 – Iran will not abandon its nuclear program even if the United Nations nuclear watchdog refers it to the Security Council, where it could face punitive measures, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in a rare news conference on Saturday.

He insisted that Iran had the right to a peaceful nuclear program and that "no excuse could deprive the country from this right."

"They keep on threatening us that we have to either accept what they say or they will send us to the Security Council," he said, referring to the United States and other Western nations that, through the International Atomic Energy Agency, have been pressing Iran not to resume any nuclear activity.

So, here we have the Times stating the obvious: the UN is a toothless organization, the EU has not been able to do anything to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions, and it will be left for the United States to clean up the resulting mess. How long will we have to put up with sanctions and UN bloviation? Supposedly, Iran will have the bomb by 2009. I would be highly surprised if they didn’t already have a few purchased from the old Soviet Union or the remnents of same. But they will be able to produce the material for their own. Do we wait till then? Or do we blow the reactor back to the stone age?

You can bet your bottom dollar that as soon as the Bush admin starts rattling sabre’s towards Iran, making moves that appear to be military, the Left Surrender Monkeys will suddenly take the position that we need to give diplomacy a chance, that Iran is using the reactors for peaceful energy purposes, and that they aren’t bad people. Some will truly believe that. The rest will convince themselves that it is reality, by repeating what they do not really believe over and over again.

Meanwhile, Vinnie has the Blog Sabbath Caption Contest over at The Jawa Report, starring Iran’s President. Don’t expect me to type his name.
