The Gathering Storm

Jack Straw, quoted in The Scotsman:
"When it became clear two and a half years ago that Iran was in breach of its obligations under the Non-Proliferation Treaty, the board of governors (of the International Atomic Energy Agency) could have referred Iran immediately to the Security Council. Some say it should have done. We suspended that action in return for Iran suspending its uranium enrichment activities. Iran has now broken a key part of that deal."
Two-and-a-half years down the line and what are the foreign ministers of Europe’s three most powerful nations doing about it? Well, they’ve had a meeting where they've made plans to call for another meeting at which a further meeting may or may not be agreed upon.

So, that’s OK then.
