    There it is! Took three pages but finally someone said it. Thanks...

    Sanctions are not diplomacy. Ending trade is an act of hostility, not peace.
    But a United Nations report released in November 2011 challenged that claim. The International Atomic Energy Agency released a trove of evidence that they said makes a “credible” case that “Iran has carried out activities relevant to the development of a nuclear device” and that the project may still be under way. The report said the I.A.E.A. had amassed “over a thousand pages” of documents, presumably leaked out of Iran, showing “research, development and testing activities” on a range of technologies that would only be useful in designing a nuclear weapon.

    You mean like sanctions from the UN?
    United Nations Security Council Resolution 1929 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia United Nations Security Council Resolution 1929, adopted on 9 June 2010, after recalling resolutions 1696 (2006), 1737 (2006), 1747 (2007), 1803 (2008), 1835 (2008) and 1887 (2009) concerning the topics of Iran and non-proliferation, the Council noted that Iran had failed to comply with previous Security Council resolutions concerning its nuclear program and imposed further sanctions on the country.[1]
    The resolution, which adopted a fourth round of sanctions against the country,[2] was adopted by twelve votes for the resolution, two against from Brazil and Turkey, with one abstention from Lebanon.
    So that would be a yes and another yes.

    From the Resolution:

    "There was concern that Iran had not yet fully suspended uranium enrichmentactivities, resumed co-operation with the IAEA or clarified issues relating to a possible military dimension to its nuclear program.[3]The Council recognised that access to diverse, reliable energy was critical for sustainable growth and development, and emphasised the rights of states in international trade. It called upon Iran to ratify theComprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty and was determined to take appropriate measures to make Iran comply with provisions in previous Security Council resolutions and requirements of the IAEA.[3]

    "There is concern." That's pretty tough language there!

    I must have missed the part about any proposed military action. Could you quote that for me?

    No, because we can't trust Iran to keep it's word any more than North Korea did when it double-dog promised Clinton that if we gave them nuclear energy, they would never, ever even think of creating a nuclear weapon.

    Rumsfeld was director of a company which won a $200m contract to sell nuclear reactors to North Korea .. The company was called ABB.

    Yep, and Reagan had Iraq removed from the Terrorist Nations Listing and Rumsfeld was over there schmoozing it up with Saddam when he was at his murderous worst.

    Funny that, isn't it?
