Security Council to Review Iran Nuke CaseTopics: Iran
First, the good news is that in what is certainly only a first step toward arriving at a solution to the Iranian nuclear crisis, the United States and other permanent members of the U.N. Security Council agreed Tuesday that Iran should go before the Council over it's disputed nuclear program.
Even China and Russia, who are longtime allies and trading partners of Iran, signed on to a statement that calls on the IAEA to transfer the Iran dossier to the Security Council, which could impose sanctions or take other harsh action.
The bad news is that this is an absolute circular function, a complete exercise in futility, because there is very little likelihood that the UN Security Council will actually do anything about the crisis, and in fact will likely serve to delay action being taken until it's too late and Iran is sitting on enough nuclear warheads to be able to hand them out to terrorists like party favors.
