The *YAWN* N

So the latest from the U.N/Europe/Iran Nuclear issue:

VIENNA, Austria - The U.N. nuclear watchdog expressed "serious concern" Thursday over Iran's resumption of nuclear activities that could lead to an atomic bomb and diplomats said Tehran faced a September deadline to stop uranium conversion at a plant in central Iran. The Iranians resumed work at the nuclear facility in Isfahan earlier this week, despite appeals from European negotiators to maintain a voluntary suspension of nuclear activities.

Despite their appeals and reasoning with the Iranians, they've still decided to continue their nuclear program. I'm going to LOVE it when Iran gets the bomb and start threatening the world with it. With all the bloviating of the Europeans (read: French and Germans) do/did on how Bush was wrong to use force in Iraq, and should have been more diplomatic, etc; for Iran to show Europe and all those pathologically insane lefties that force is necessary sometimes will almost be worth Iran getting the bomb- except then it will be our job to clean up their mess.

Of course, once they fall on their faces... again... they'll come plead with us to come bail them out... again... and of course we'll oblige... again... and they'll hate us for it and condemn us as the violent knuckle-dragging Americans wondering why we didn't use diplomacy... again.

I'm just absolutely dumbfounded at the feet-dragging pace of people coupled with such stone cold stupidity. Haven't we learned by now that if hostile nations are making aggressive gestures, they aren't just doing it for their own health? Guess not. While our side is talking, our enemies are doing. Like FDR says in the movie "Pearl Harbor:" "We build refrigerators while our enemies build bombs." Exactly the same thing going on today and somehow people just don't see it.
