One for the "I am shocked--SHOCKED!" File

Iran defiantly rejects new U.N. demands

Why, it's almost as if they think the UN is a powerless, hidebound bureaucracy more suited to mindless finger-wagging than an effective deterrent to international brigandry!

Well, I for one am quite frightened by the UN. It is always dangerous to be near complete incompetence.

Maybe we could threaten to drop it on Iran.

Hmmm. Wouldn't complete incompetence mean they were competent at something? I wouldn't personally advertise my competent incompetence, but maybe it works for them?

Here's a slogan: "The UN: We can Screw Anything Up, and in 140 Languages"

Well, you have me there. I will concede that their incompetence shines brightly as their crowning achievement.

Iran Defiantly Rejects New U.N. Demands. Wow that is a big surprise since Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov again stated that his countries stance is that it would not support the use of force to solve the Iranian nuclear problem. The AP quoted Lavrov as saying, "As many of our European and Chinese colleagues have stated more than once, any ideas involving the use of force or pressure in resolving the issue are counterproductive and cannot be supported." It sounds like it’s just another game. France played the game recently and how has it worked out for them?

I think Russia's worried that if anything happens to Iran's nuclear stuff, Russia won't get paid for it.

And, as we all know, It's All About the Vladimirs.
