UK Prime Minister Tony Blair told Parliament today that he plans on pressing for Iran to be brought before the UN Security Council over its nuclear program.



New York Times

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Britain called on Wednesday for the U.N. Security Council to consider action against Iran after it resumed nuclear fuel research, but Iran's hardline president said his country would pursue its course regardless.
...
British Prime Minister Tony Blair told parliament he aimed to secure international agreement to haul Iran before the Security Council, which can impose punitive measures.

``Then .. we have to decide what measures to take and we obviously don't rule out any measures at all,'' he added.

Good for him! Hopefully we'll see some action soon. The Europeans have been more than patient with Iran, but they keep breaking agreements and flouting the IAEA. Something must be done.

In before the people who try to convince us "Isreal should be wiped off the map" isnt a good reason to disarm him.

I really like Blair. He's got the balls to stand up for what is right, even if it isnt so popular.

Just how do you impose sactions on a country who is rich enough to stand on its own? And do you really think Russia is goign to go along with sanctions?

The thing here is that taking this before the UN Security Council and authorizing sanctions against Iran is about as far as both the UN and the Europeans will probably go with any type worthwhile action taken against Iran. Which means, if Iran decides to keep going on their nuclear weapons quest, despite sanctions, it is highly unlikely that the UN or the Europeans will do anything more beyond those sanctions.
The former Iranian president asserts:


Prime Minister Tony Blair called on Wednesday for the U.N. Security Council to consider action against Iran after it resumed nuclear fuel research, but former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said any sanctions would be futile.
Blair urges U.N. to consider action on Iran


Iran is aware of this and knows this, as is Rafsanjani and the current Iranian leadership. It is a political game of chicken, called brinkmanship.


Speaking Wednesday on the occasion of the Eid al-Adha feast, which marks the end of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, Rafsanjani said Iranians will not give up their right to possess modern technology and "the arrogant West will regret placing obstacles in their way."
Rafsanjani warns West against nuke sanctions


Personally, I do think Iran is indeed worried over the sanctions, for Iran is not rich enough to stand on its own, but also, I do believe that Iran will continue to pursue nuclear weapons despite those UN sanctioned sanctions.

Well the settings are perfect for the next chapter in the middle east.

At least this time the reasons will be legit, a nuclear plant, possibilities of WMDs and a very, very evil country with a more evil regime.

I guess things will be done by the book, UN first, sanctions, then attacks on strategy places and invasion.

This time the rest of the world will not be able to questions the reasons.

Well the media has to keep their ratings high so they can get sponsors and profit from their news programs.

Watching these countries deal with Iran is really starting to annoy. I think they all need a little Dr. Phill time. Counting to three a few times before you put a psychopath in time out just doesnt cut it.

Seriously though, they have knocked people off for less. What's the problem?

Is very simple msdudara, the fate of Iran was sealed along with Iraqi fate, the decision has already been made in advance.

Iran is part of the whole middle east deal.

Geee ... all Iran would have to do is bring some oil money
and buy off the Security Council. Saddam did it for many
years. Iran could just do the same.

Even though I believe certain sections of our government would love to make even more illegal money like they did with Saddam, I don't think that the Bush administration would risk another scandal, especially so close to elections.

why does Iran need nuclear power?

the country uses all most no electricity its people don't even all have a tv or pc.
is it for al the refrigurators and coolboxes and aircoolers?

or do they know something we don;t know and that is that they are running low on oil or only willing to use nuclear power so all the oil can be sold as they don;t use much and so make more money?

And I wonder why Anti Military spin gets high ratings? Marge do you have anything to say?

Just to add on, all Iran needs is one veto in the Security Council to stop everything, and they probably already have it.

The oil barons wants the entire middle east oil and they will have it, Iran will be attack and invaded to much is at stake in the whole deal.


Then also we can not forget the war profiteers.

Umm... Marge you did not answer my question. In fact, I don't understand what you are trying to say. Why would these “war profiteers” want Anti-Military spin, wouldn’t that be counter productive to their needs?

It's a mess. I have bad feeling about this that I feel end with Israel bombing Iran..which will be only the begining. Truth is plain and simple: Israel wants to remain the only nuclear power in the Middle-East. They will stop at nothing. They bombed Iraq in the past.

Their friends at the UN will do anything asked of them in this crusade. "Bomb Iran for opening up a high energy/nuclear research program? No problem!"

IAEA wants everything the IRanians are doing put on ice until negotiations can be met, but it took Iran about 2 years to figure out that the negotiation plans include keeping those nuclear ambitions on ice FOREVER. So there is no chance that this works out the way the IAEA or anyone at the UN (excluding Iran) wants it to.

Hopefully for the Jews Sharon will come out of his stroke and hear that no progress has been made. Drop the bombs will be the call given. Iran won't fight back, but I don't think it is going to stop them from opening up another research facility and launching a vicous pr campaign.

Gee, curme, you're French? Or German? You know, the countries that along with Russia siphoned billions of bucks away from the Iraqi people in the OFF fiasco?

Do ya think that 17 UN (ignored or broken) resolutions over 12 years will be enough this time, before we take further action??
