"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Iran to shun IAEA if hit by sanctions

"Iran said on Tuesday it would suspend ties with the UN nuclear watchdog and speed up its atomic program if it were hit by international sanctions."

"Iran's nuclear technology is like a bullet that has already left the barrel and it is impossible to push it back into the barrel," influential former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani told the Tehran conference.

French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy said there should be no talk of unilateral military action.

What do the French consider unilater action? How is Iran's actions not considered "unilateral?"

The Iranians are playing a game. They want one thing and one thing only and that is to have their way. They will scream and cry up a storm and many will look upon us as "terrorists," but the military option is truly the only realistic action to take.

The other option is to trust a nation that has really left no question as to what they would do were they to acquire nuclear weapons.
