U.S. Wins Support In Iran Dispute

China, Russia Join Call to Suspend Nuclear Program

Well, not quite. They’ve joined the “call” in the sort of toothless Kellogg-Briand fashion. Read the story and see (as Reuters does a better job of pointing out)that China and Russia still reject doing anything serious about Iran. I’m not sure what their aversion to sending the issue to the Security Council is. After all, they’d still have about one to two decades of status quo. And if sanctions are applied, I’m sure Kofi wouldn’t mind looking the other way so they can keep their trade going with Iran. Perhaps they’re afraid of the Cookie Duster sheriff?
