UN Irresolution on Iran's Nuclear Bomb Program

With many declamations about the inalienable right to peaceful nuclear technology, and the usual sighs of self-congratulation about having accomplished something on paper, the UN Security Council on Saturday unanimously approved a resolution that amounts to the third limp wrist-slap since last July for Iran’s terrorist-sponsoring nuclear-bomb-building regime.

The best comment I’ve seen so far comes from Vic Comras, writing on the CounterTerrorism blog, who lays out some of the main reasons why this is a resolution “Full of Sound and Fury, Signifying Nothing,” and sums it up:

“It is difficult to understand how these new measures, which include something less than a travel ban, something less that a financial assistance and investment ban, and something less than an arms embargo are going to dissuade Iran from continuing on its presence course.”
