Pointing a Bulletless Gun

The U.S., Britain and France introduced a UN Security Council resolution today demanding that Iran suspend it’s uranium enrichment efforts.

The text, which is opposed by Russia and China, does not contain any sanctions but threatens to consider “further measures as may be necessary” to ensure Iran’s compliance — a veiled way of saying the Western allies would attempt to enact sanctions if Tehran remained defiant.

It also calls on all nations to exercise vigilance in preventing the transfer of materials and technology “that could contribute to Iran’s enrichment-related and reprocessing activities and missile programs.”

Oooooh…scary! Those Iranians are shaking in their boots for sure!

This resolution means nothing. Now, I understand that diplomatic efforts require this sort of thing, but when it comes down to it, the threat is empty, worthless, and a waste of time.
