    Let us hope that you are right but I have serious doubts. The day Obama, Sarkozy and Brown spoke was not the day the world came together on Iran. Have you not noticed the conspicuous absence of the Russian and Chinese heads of State for the joint statement ? Russia may yet come along as they have just received the big concession from the US on the missile deployment in Central Europe so they may do quip pro quo and reciprocate on Iran. China on the other hand has absolutely no interest in any meaningful sanctions that would threaten its long term oil contracts with Iran. China follows its own selfish foreign policy hardly understood by the West and particularly the US. Having N. Korea and Iran preoccupy the US and the EU is China?s strategic interests that include being the world?s dominant economic power and re-claiming Taiwan. To that end, one Chinese postulate offers that a good hunter, upon seeing a tiger and python attack each other, will not interfere but instead perch himself on a top of a hill from where he will observe the fight and wait till the end until one animal kills the other, then come downhill and kill the winner. Very revealing don?t you think ?
