All the time in the world

Someone needs to light a fire under Congress. They apparently think they have all the time in the world.
The U.S. House of Representatives passed a motion on Thursday giving U.S. President Barack Obama until January 31st 2010 to achieve any progress in his diplomatic outreach with Iran over its controversial nuclear drive. The West has been talking with Iran for the past seven years in an effort to get it to rein in its illegal nuclear program.

In a provision of the 2010 defense budget bill, U.S. lawmakers required Obama "no later than January 31, 2010, to deliver a report to Congress on U.S. engagement" with Tehran. After that date, the House made a non-binding request that sanctions be imposed on the Iranian regime.
And the odds of Obama complying with that 'non-binding request'? Somewhere between slim and none.

Like Iran will take the threat of far off sanctions seriously.

I can just picture the mullahs holding themselves against a tree trying to refrain from laughing.

All in the time in the world, indeed.
