Rice makes a clear statement. Let’s hope our luck holds. From Reuters:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States vowed to step up pressure on Iran over its suspected nuclear arms programs after winning on Saturday a diplomatic battle to have the Islamic republic reported to the U.N. Security Council.
U.S. officials said the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency had sent a “clear rebuke” when it voted to report Iran to the council for possible sanctions over its nuclear activities, and they said Iran had miscalculated the international response.
“We hope the Iranian regime will heed this clear message,” Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in a statement. “The world will not stand by if Iran continues on the path to a nuclear weapons capability.”
