Iran Referred to the UN Security Council

Nothing will happen unless the US makes it happen, and that isn't going to happen before the 06 mid terms, and thats the way it is.
I know it, the State Department knows it, the UN knows it, every other country in the world knows it, and even Iran knows it.

All a bunch of hot air until that time and then, lo and behold, the diplomatic measures will have made major movement!

Socialist MSM nonsense.

I think you may be very right. Especially about the first sentence above.

P.S.

I love the image/pic you posted. Too true IMO.

But they should care. They haven't cared for over 27 yrs. More buying time is not desirable, to say the least. But there must be a right a time.
