If we had a UN Security Council that actually worked, we might get somewhere. As it is; the US will always veto anything that is aimed at Israel, and Russia will usually come down on the side of Iran. There should not be permanent, veto-wielding, members of the Security Council at all. How is anything supposed to be resolved when the veto-wielders are the big power players? It would be like having a trial where the judge is friends with the accused and the jury are buddies with the defense.
Although I agree with the points in the OP, Iran are not blameless. They clearly know how to work the IAEA and they did lie for nearly 20 years before being busted. I can pretty much guarantee they're not being 100% transparent about their nuclear work. I'm convinced they're trying to emulate North Korea - and who can blame them, really?
So yeah, we're probably on the way to more hostilities in the Middle East - with the UN being played by both sides as usual.

I knew it wouldn't take long.
I'm not the only one who sees it right? I'm not alone in thinking the Israeli government have an entire army of propaganda merchants on the internet?

What many people don't realize is that Israel has a larger nuclear arsenal than the United States, the Russian Commonwealth of States, and China combined!
I vote you no longer get to use stupid language like "WILL SEND OUR CHILDREN" after the fifth anniversary of that not happening. Since I have heard this crap for at LEAST the past 8 years let it go.... let it go..

Sadly it appears that Israel will send our children off to war because the government we sign the pay checks for jump to their every whine er, I mean whim.
Great post, star and flag.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says corporate media has turned into a weapon of subterfuge, with the sole aim of advancing the West's political agenda.
In a Saturday address to the Islamic Radio and TV Union Assembly, Ahmadinejad cited random examples of political bias in US and European media outlets.
As a first example of biased reporting in the West, Ahmadinejad pointed to the scant media coverage of Israel's three-week attack on Gaza, which killed over 1500 Palestinians mostly women and children, earlier in the year.
“Israelis easily used thousands of bombs against the defenseless population of Gaza Strip, who were stripped of medicine and their most essential needs. Now, eight months have passed and we see that the event has been already sunk into oblivion.”
Ahmadinejad said criticism of Israel and its actions has become 'off limits' in American and European media.
Then, Ahmadinejad turned to the sheer lack of media attention to the brutal murder of Marwa el-Sherbini, a pregnant Egyptian woman who was stabbed to death in a German courtroom while the whole jury and court officials stood by and watched.
Last but not least, Ahmadinejad pointed to the recent media hype over Iran's second nuclear enrichment plant. “In the past few days, we saw Western media outlets repeating false accusations against Iran's nuclear issue.”
“This is how the Western media works. First they
>distort facts and fabricate news. Then they incessantly repeat their false allegations, just to make sure that it is forever etched on the minds of people,” he said.
“[US President Barack Obama] made a huge mistake when he accused Iran of secrecy and gave rise to the recent torrent of false reports,” said President Ahmadinejad.
Referring to the sudden commotion over the newly-revealed Fordu nuclear facility in southern Tehran, President Ahmadinejad said Iran has always kept the IAEA posted on its enrichment work in line with its policy of transparency.
“Our activities are entirely based on honesty and transparency. There are no secrets between us and the IAEA whatsoever,” he noted.
Ahmadinejad warned that the mainstream media in the West has grown to become more dangerous and more threatening than any chemical or nuclear weapons.
“The media campaign has turned into a full-fledged war. I believe the West's abundant arsenals of chemical and nuclear weapons are there to deceive and intimidate,” he said.
According to President Ahmadinejad, unbiased media does not exist in the West. “Claims of freedom of press are all lies, each and every one of the western media outlets serve the interests and policies of their states,” he said.
“When I was in New York for the General Assembly, I was interviewed by several news networks, all of which asked the exact same set of questions,” he said.
“I asked them how can you call yourself an independent media, when all the questions you are asking me have been clearly dictated by your governments. Which one of these questions are posed in the interest of your people?” he noted.
President Ahmadinejad said Iran's mission today is not limited to spreading information. Our main responsibility today is to defend humanity and to create a global culture in support of the oppressed people, he explained.

As far as I am concerned, the US should be standing shoulder to shoulder with Israel and see to it that Israel's borders expand to their original biblical geography.
“The government has no role in these events … Undoubtedly, some foreign governments had a role to play in it … It is all very regrettable … Some European and American politicians took a wrong position and basically helped that happen.”

Some of you need to stop lying and promoting things that aren't true. Ahmadinejad and/or Iran NEVER said or called for Israel to be "wiped off the map."
