The I.A.E.A.'s and United Nation's kabuki dance.... masquerading as "diplomacy"
El Baradai wants to dance around Iran for a couple more months to decide if they present a great enough danger to report them to the heretofore toothless and irrelevant U.N. Security Council about Iran's obvious nuclears weapons capability development.
Mad Mad Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, backed by his cadre of nuclear-theocracy-or-bust Mullahs, is currently stepping up threats and attempted blackmail of voting members of the Security Council---especially Russia and the United States. While at the same time stepping up his nefarious nuclear warhead R & D.
Running against Mahmoud's luck is the fact that U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton has now been seated as the new President of the Security Council. Bolton has already pulled out the long barrels and ruffled more than a few feathers, while trying to shake the elitist U.N. kleptocrats out of their complacency and malingering.... as they suck the blood out of American taxpayers.
Bolton is not the type of chap to be intimidated. Maybe hang-tough George W. Bush could loan him some cowboy hats and spurs for the rough ride.
As Bush said earlier, "Bolton is the right man.... in the right place.... at the right time."
Ditto that for me.
