UN Calls on Iran to End Nuke Program ... Whoopti-floppin'-doodah!!

I am still working on a post for "Why I Am a Conservative" but I saw this article and just had to point out something:

I think it is really ironic that the UN and the EU are calling on Iran to end thier nuclear weapons program. I don't see any difference than this situation than Iraq because the UN called on their disarmament and disclosure for over 12 years and that did not come about. What makes people think that this demand is going to be any different 12 years down the road? The only reason I can see this being different is the fact that the U.S. and Israel will act and take out the known nuclear facilities.

Now, of course, there are different motives for this support. The United States is threatening Iran because of their influence in Iraq and the ruling Mullahs and the President are simply crazy--they can't be trusted with nuclear weapons. Now Russia comes to the table with a different stance: they want to continue their trade with the Iranians and making money with oil. China, well, I don't know what to think about China, but I am sure that they want to continue to see Russia to do well.

But, I still stick to my original point: what good is this going to do since we have witnessed the failure of diplomacy with Iraq? I guess only time will tell.
