If you really want someone to listen...

Then you don't do something like this.

I'm sure everyone knows about the escalating problems in Iran, with their swing back towards religious extremism and the development of nuclear capability, which whatever you may think about the rights or wrongs of the west’s supposedly "hypocritical" stand on nuclear weapons would be a complete disaster not only for the middle east but for the world as a whole. According to the BBC the United Nations Security Council is `preparing to start discussing how to encourage Irans regime to suspend its nuclear programme`. Here I was thinking this was a really important issue that needed resolving quickly, it would seem however that its just dragging on and on and by the time the UN have decided to give the Iranians a slap on the wrist they turn round and say "I wouldn’t do that if I were you, we have a 12 kiloton warhead aimed at Tel Aviv." At the same time our esteemed foreign secretary Mr. Jack Straw said this:
`Military action against Iran was inconceivable. ` And
"Although no American president is ever going to theoretically rule out any option, in practice military action is not on the Americans' agenda."

Don’t get me wrong here, I am not saying we should attack Iran, but I believe that at the end of the day, if we are truly serious about preventing them from developing nuclear warheads then we may well have to. Apart from anything else, if you remove the threat of military action what is left? Economic sanctions never worked against Iraq, all they achieved was further isolation and propaganda material for the Iraqis, why would they work against Iran?

Then again on a lighter note from the same speech:

"Iran solemnly said it was not going to do anything that would lead to the development of a nuclear weapons system..."
Gee whiz Tony Blaire solemnly said he wasn’t going to introduce tuition fees (grrr) so they can hardly be condemned for that now can they?
