Iran is Threatening the US and Europe

Iran, using it's convoluted Islamic logic, is saying it would be a big mistake if the US and Europe brought it's nuclear program up in the UN Security Counsel and sought sanctions against it.
Iran has warned it would be a "grave miscalculation" for the US and EU to refer Tehran to the UN Security Council over its nuclear programme.

The warning came after Iran broke UN seals at its nuclear plant at Isfahan, making it fully operational.

UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has called on European Union countries to continue dialogue with Iran.

EU countries have proposed a resolution to the UN nuclear watchdog in Vienna calling for Iran to halt work.

But Iran's chief negotiator at the talks there said Tehran had an absolute right to produce nuclear fuel.

Dismissing the EU's proposals of economic and political concessions as a "package of lollipops", Mr Nasseri said: "We do not for the moment have much hope in the talks whether now or in the future."

The EU and US suspect Iran's scheme is a cover for a nuclear weapons programme.

The West could call for sanctions on the grounds that Iran hid its uranium enrichment programme for 18 years.

Mr Nasseri said: "I think that would be a grave miscalculation by the US and particularly by Europe to move towards the path of confrontation.

"There is no legal base whatsoever to go to the Security Council. If it is, it is by political choosing and it will be big, big mistake."

The Mad Mullahs want to resume their nuclear bomb making, disregarding any kind of agreement, and then threatening us if we try to sanction them. If don't sanction them, they are going to build a bomb and use it on us or Israel, and if we DO sanction them, they are threatening us and still are going to build a bomb and use it on us or Israel. It is one of those strange convoluted logic processes of: Bombed us if we do, and Bombed us if we don't. I say we go beyond sanctions and take out their bomb capability all together and then we are assured that their threat will be an idle one. I trust them to have nuclear material as much as I trust Michael Moore to have a video editing machine, NOT ONE BIT!! Sanction them, and bomb them, and not necessarily in that order.
