Iran Still Piddling

Iran is still yanking the UN's chain. I bed Tehran is laughing it up reading news articles like this:

Six world powers abandoned attempts Tuesday to issue a joint statement criticizing Iran's nuclear defiance after China and Russia refused to endorse U.S.-backed tough language, diplomats said.

The split, at a 35-nation meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency's board, reflected indecision on how to react to Tehran's weekend suggestion that it might temporarily suspend uranium enrichment - but only on its own terms.

I mean seriously. The security council can't even get together enough to use "strong language" when they're planning on issuing economic sanctions that will effectively cripple the entire nation. Talk about a joke.
