Good news: The path is open to another strongly-worded message to Iran

This is beyond ridiculous.
Later under questioning with her British counterpart David Miliband, Clinton said she believes a path is open to a strongly worded new U.N. Security Council resolution on Iran, which denies nuclear weapons ambitions.

Clinton declined to predict if such a resolution would include new sanctions but said the entire world has reason to be concerned about the prospect of a nuclear armed Iran.
That ought to do a lot of good: Another 'strongly-worded resolution.'

Even EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, whose first action upon taking office was to rip Israel, seems to understand more about Iran than Clinton does.
"As I have said already, very publicly, we want to have dialogue, but six years of dialogue by my predecessor Javier Solana have not brought us to the outcome that we have wished. So we do have to consider what else needs to be done, and we stand ready to do that," she said.
Meanwhile, French President Nicolas Sarkozy is warning that Israel may act against Iran.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy assessed that Israel "would not stand by while Iran develops nuclear weapons," Al Hayat quoted sources close to the French leader on Saturday.

"Israel might take action to prevent the Iranian regime, which wants to wipe it off the map of the world, from obtaining a nuclear bomb," Sarkozy reportedly explained to visiting Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri.

According to Saturday's report in the London-based Arab daily, Sarkozy told Hariri that France had proof that Teheran was working to develop a nuclear bomb.

The Jerusalem Post could not confirm the report.
What could go wrong?
