Iran Update

As those who follow this blog know, I take a special interest in the Iranian Freedom Movement. So I was pleased to read the following Reuters report – Europe Compromises with U.S. on Iran Nuclear Deadline

France, Britain and Germany have met a key U.S. demand by proposing a November deadline for Iran to dispel concern that it has a covert atom bomb program, according to a draft resolution seen by Reuters.

But the draft does not order Tehran to be automatically reported to the U.N. Security Council if it does not meet the deadline, as Washington wishes.

Good for the administration, although I wish they had gotten all their demands. Iranian policy is one of the key reasons I support Bush in the election. For those who don’t see a big difference between the candidates on this issue, I would remind them of this John Edwards statement of only a couple of weeks ago. (hat tip: M. Simon, again)
