whateve happened to the courage of the western nations? in -56 britain & france (plus israel) acted. after much too much hesitation NATO acted in bosnia, a bit more readily over kosovo. till now they've been comfortable w/being played be iran, steadily toward the point of no return, unable to show any real muscle till it's too late. isn't this a shame? it's these nations plain duty to act in order to protect the world & no time is better & more advantagious than now. russia should act too. they can sell china, who's never gonna move their butt, something to get it passed in the UNSC, give iran a final ultimatum & go. stop fooling around! if the main world powers are behind it the world won't shake too much in the aftermath. many nations will be relieved. whether israel participates /not. it can be demanded in return that it makes a real freeze of building in WB & jerusalem & enters final negotiations w/the pals on all major issues. period. this is the way things are done.
