U.N. Agency Debates Iran Nuclear Issue

By ANDREA DUDIKOVA, Associated Press Writer


VIENNA, Austria - Diplomats at the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency debated a draft resolution Thursday that expressed "serious concern" over Iran's resumption of uranium conversion but left open the possibility of further negotiations.

Am I the only one who finds it hilarious that the UN is "expressing serious concern"? What a useless organization.

The U.N. has its hands tied trying to get kids out of Filipino prison cells shared with murderers and pedophiles.

Sending "stern" letters and "expressions of disapproval" is not diplomacy. It is pointless and toothless whining.

Their idea of the Iran nuclear issue is drasticly different from mine.

We cannot trust any of the Middle Eastern countries with nuclear arms.

What are you talking about?  Iran is about twice as big as Iraq, much more populated, much better armed and trained, and haven't been suffering from sanctions for the past decade.  Iraq is a piece of cake compared to Iran.

Well, that's what UN bashers do. They bash the UN but they don't offer any alternatives.

I fail to see the logic that the problems created by governments should somehow be addressed by a supra-government run by the constituent governments which create the very problems needing to be addressed.

There needs to be a thing called international law though.

I wonder if it might be somewhat different if they were elected by the people of those countries rather than by their governments.

Oh? I have learned to be careful of desires and the unintended consequences of their realization. Should we forget that what is legal and what is right or moral are not necessarily the same thing? In matters of the state, it would seem that there is an inverse realtionship between authority and accountability. In other words, the greater the authority, the lesser the accountability.

Got any better ideas?  :cool:

See, unless you can offer an alternative to the U.N., your point is moot pretty much. :shrug:

I believe alternative he is suggesting is to have no world government, as was the case up until the 20th century.

The Bush Administrations "alternatives". You can see about 80 alternatives dropping out of this one.
