The U.N Decides On Iran
The United Nations Security Council gave Iran 30 days to clear up any and all suspicions that it is trying to acquire a nuclear weapon. Secretary of State Condolezza Rice warned Iran Thursday that the " International community is united" in the dispute over its nuclear program.
After about three weeks of tough negotiations, the 15-member Security Council approved a statement Wednesday asking the the United Nations watchdog, The International Atomic Energy Agency, to report back in 30 days on Iran's compliance with the demands to stop enriching uranium.
The American people are sick and tired of useless statements and resolutions, we want action. We want the United Nations to accomplish something besides impeding American interests around the world and allowing brutal dictators to run free.
" The onus is on Iran to show the international community that its program is entirely for civil purpose and for no other," said British Foreign Minister Jack Straw. " We have shown very good patience with Iran. They in turn have miscalculated. They thought the international community would be divided on this issue but in fact they have become more and more united."
With Russia and China not fully on board with the U.S. and English it is very hard for me to actually believe that the U.N. will act beyond talk and possible sanctions. The U.N. is very weak and with no power, but maybe they will all show us wrong, I certainly hope so.
