We have been through this before. Hans Blix and the U.N. inspectors were kicked out of Iraq before they finished their investigations. We have a similar situation with ElBaradei. He has reached an agreement with Iran to resolve verifications issues of their nuclear program as to whether it is in accord with the NPT or whether it is in violation of the NPT. ElBaradei needs another 2 months to resolve these issues. It serves no purpose for France to start beating the war drums. It serves no purpose for Europe and the U.S. to press for further sanctions against Iran while ElBaradei is attempting to resolve these issues.
