Iran Rattles sabers, Round III - : "VIENNA, Austria — Iran threatened to start full-scale uranium enrichment if members of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency press for U.N. Security Council action over Tehran's nuclear program at a meeting that opened Monday.

A top U.S. diplomat, meanwhile, said there was an urgent need to confront Iran's 'clear and unrelenting drive' for nuclear weapons.

Iran 'must be made aware that if it continues down the path of international isolation, there will be tangible and painful consequences,' John Bolton, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, told the conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Sunday.

The International Atomic Energy Agency's 35-member board was not likely to discuss the Iran issue until Tuesday or Wednesday, but delegates said that whatever step the council might take would stop far short of sanctions."

Nice. So Iran doesn't give a bag of sand what the IAEA does, and will continue with the nuke program either way.
Danged terrorists. The council is with them, as they just sit on the sidelines and watch as the nation that has all but declared war on Isreal arms itself with the most destructive weapons on the planet.
