On The Ayatollah's Answer
Two months ago the U.N. Security Council offered Iran a choice: Stop enriching uranium in violation of its treaty agreements, and the world would negotiate better diplomatic and commercial relations. Keep enriching the fuel for nuclear weapons, however, and face isolation and sanctions. Tehran's rulers have now given their answer: They won't stop enriching uranium, but they're happy to keep talking about it.... and keep talking until they complete the development of an atomic bomb or someone stops them first.
Pat Santy shines a little psychological light on the subject, and says that the supposed adults of the west should know better than to continue with allowing Iran to conquer the Security Council by dividing its members with the promise that more talk might some day, down the road, in return for who knows what, lead Iran to stop going nuclear.
