Cry me a river: "Iran said on Sunday it was not clear when U.N. atomic inspectors would be allowed back into the country and said the decision to bar them reflected Tehran's anger at an 'insulting' resolution on its nuclear activities." I think we should have slapped some economic sanctions on these guys long ago. If we don't get serious about this, Iran will become just as nuclearly armed as North Korea. If I were John Kerry, I'd be attacking Bush from the right on this. Granted, economic sanctions may not stop Iran from going nuclear, but it's a lot more likely to work than mere words, which Iran might find insulting. Moreover, sanctions wide enough to really hurt Iran's economy might make the regime's nuclear policy unpopular. Unlike North Korea, public opinion is not yet completely irrelevant in Iran.
