World's patience with Iran is limited: White House
Reuters on Yahoo ^ | 11/27/09 | Andrew Quinn and Jeff Mason

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The world is losing patience with Iran's behavior over its nuclear program and Tehran will be responsible for the consequences if it fails to meet its obligations, the White House said on Friday.

Robert Gibbs, President Barack Obama's chief spokesman, said a vote by the U.N. nuclear watchdog to rebuke Iran illustrated the "resolve and unity" of the international community over Iran's nuclear program.

The International Atomic Energy Agency's board of governors voted 25-3 to censure Iran in a decision that gained rare backing from Russia and China, which have in the past blocked attempts to isolate Iran, a trade partner for both.

"Our patience and that of the international community is limited, and time is running out," Gibbs said in a statement.

"If Iran refuses to meet its obligations, then it will be responsible for its own growing isolation and the consequences."

U.S. officials emphasized the IAEA's vote showed a broad consensus among global powers.

"The fact that 25 countries from all parts of the world cast their votes in favor shows the urgent need for Iran to address the growing international deficit of confidence in its intentions," Gibbs said.

One U.S. official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, stressed that a "package of consequences" would result if Iran did not prove to be a serious partner in talks with world powers about its nuclear program.

Western governments fear the program is aimed at producing nuclear weapons but Iran denies the charge.

Oh, Brother.

Being threatened by “Marshmallow” Robert Gibbs is pathetically comical.

They apparently think the Iranians take them seriously.
We’re so screwed.

Patience is limited by what? Obama gave them until December to come to terms, and we’re almost there. This is a farce, and a very dangerous one.

"The fact that 25 countries from all parts of the world cast their votes in favor shows the urgent need for Iran to address the growing international deficit of confidence in its intentions," Gibbs said.

Twenty-five nations who aren't prepared to do a damn thing. And 22 of whom would raise hell if the other three considered actually undertaking action.

Casting a vote in the UN is easy -- there are no consequences.

One U.S. official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, stressed that a "package of consequences" would result if Iran did not prove to be a serious partner in talks with world powers about its nuclear program.

A "package of consequences" that includes an autographed CD of "Obama's 25 Greatest Speeches", Michelle's favorite recipes and a video of Hillary saying "Neener, neener, neener" to Ahmadinejad posted on Facebook.

I would expect the Irani reaction to be stark horror and immediate compliance.

It's going to be a lonnnnnnnngggggggg three years...

The 9th Century pig fornicating mullahs in Tehran know that the only thing they need fear is Israel.The entire civilized world should pray that Israel is up to this enormous,dangerous task because neither Hussein nor Europe have the desire or the spine to do what needs to be done.

What can Obama do? Stamp his widdle feet and have a hissy fit?

No one is the least bit concerned with Obama's pronouncements on the international scene. He is a zero.

Ouch. Yes, the gauntlet has indeed been thrown down. Gibbs is one tough hombre. Because, as he says, if Iran doesn't behave, it will have to face “growing isolation.”

That's real strong language. The sabres are being sharpened. The Mullahs are real worried, I bet. Because they are just about to get sent to their room for a time out.
