Iran Defies UN Security Council--So What?
As always, Yaakov Kirschen at DRY BONES saw it coming. Iran has ignored the U.N. Security Council's Aug. 31 deadline to halt the enrichment of uranium and is pressing ahead on a nuclear program enabling it to develop nuclear weapons. In sheer defiance of the international community, and just days before the deadline, Iran announced the opening of a new nuclear facility and actually increased its enrichment activities. Will the reaction of the UN be anything more than a shrug of Kofi Anan's shoulders?
