Meanwhile, Back at the U.N.

World powers have agreed to refer Iran back to the U.N. Security Council for possible sanctions, saying that Tehran shows no signs it will negotiate seriously about its nuclear program.

Of course, the real issue is what happens when the matter lands back at the UNSC. While Russia and China agreed to today's referral, they still oppose meaningful sanctions against Iran.

At this point, Tehran has little to fear, but watch for another round of nuclear rope-a-dope in the near future, just to keep the diplomatic process in motion.

Yep, and Iran's support, direction and goating of the attacks against Israel, are going to work to their benifit and plans.

Iran and Syria...a finer pairing could not be founded, and it will be apparent at every turn in this twisted, ever deeping journey, into the dark times we are sinking into.
