Is This Just an Empty Quiver?

U.S. Gets Permanent U.N. Security Council Members to Back Iran Warnings

All five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council have each separately sent to Iran a diplomatic communiqué - known as a 'demarche' in international parlance - warning the Islamic Republic that it could face sanctions should it go forward with its nuclear program.

Bush administration officials told FOX News that the communiqués, sent Saturday, are an important step forward in blocking Iran's nuclear ambitions because China and Russia, which have huge economic interests in Iran, have hinted in the past that they would oppose and veto such a referral if brought to the Security Council.

While I think it’s great that the U.N. finally got off it’s duff on this issue, I feel, as I am sure Iran does also, that this is just empty saber rattling. The U.N. has become a self created paper tiger, and unfortunately all the despotic nations of the world know it.
