    This is just the latest in a long line of empty reassurances by Western and European governments.Iran has just been given another long term opportunity to continue with its nuclear enrichment in relative peace and quiet. Why would anyone see this as being a possitive step? Passing new sanctions, should they go forward, will allow the US to claim they have taken new steps in ensuring Iran is punished for its refusal to cooperate,allowing Iran to continue unabated.Iran sees each new Sanction as another year of progress.Now I fear that a military option is the only viable option and Isareli,US,and European leaders will have no one to blame but themselves.They let this happen.There will come a day when a decision must be made,I only pray that those who claim to lead us are capable of making that decision.2009 was a great year for Iran and it looks as though 2010 will be just as fruitful
