It seems that Iran, as of today, has managed to goad the international community into an impotent paralysis. Russia and China seem caught between their economic interests and natural competitiveness with the United States on the one hand, and the possibility of a nuclear Iran, on the other hand. Newly developing India, with its history of neutrality and thirld world alliances, is itself facing the threat of radical Islam at home. The European Union is going through a crisis of weak leadership and populations that, ironically, are turned inward, paying lip service to international human rights while reeling from real and possible attacks from terrorists on their soil. The Arab countries of the region, the ones who are the most threatened, dare say nothing, at least in public.The United States, with a strong but wounded president, is examining its options. This leaves Iran an open field to make its extremely provocative remarks.
