Once again, we see the impressive rewards that the Obama Administration's smart diplomacy are bringing us: Iran has announced over the weekend that it will no longer be voluntarily cooperating with the United Nations nuclear monitoring agency:
TEHRAN - Iran officially announced that it will cease its voluntary cooperation with the IAEA after the agency's Board of Governors adopted a resolution against Iran on Friday under pressure by Western countries.
Iran said the drafters of the anti-Iran resolution made a historic mistake and advised the West to discard its policy of confrontation with Tehran.
The season of good tidings is truly upon us, my soon-to-be-nuked friends. I'm sure you're as ecstatic with fluorescent joy as I am.
In all seriousness, it's not like Iran's "cooperation" with the IAEA has been entirely on the up-and-up. After all, this is the same IAEA that ignored Iran's stockpiling of nuclear production capabilities until, well, Iran came out and admitted it openly.
But hey, "international" diplomacy hasn't given us world peace over the past 80 years -- So why don't we just give it another toothless try?
