Oh, This Will Solve Everything

Does anyone really think that Russia and France will stick with this opinion or actually do anything?

AP: Russia, France Oppose Iran's Atomic Plan---

The world has long sought to stop Iran from enriching uranium, fearing that the process would bring it to the threshold of possessing nuclear bombs. Russia and France immediately called on Iran to halt its work and fulfill the demands of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency, according to a joint statement posted on the Kremlin's Web site.

On Feb. 4, the International Atomic Energy Agency reported Iran to the U.N. Security Council and simultaneously called on its government to suspend all enrichment-related activities.
Oooh, such tough talk! This will be the difference . . . in no way. I can immediately call on Iran "to halt its work and fulfill the demands of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency" too. Won't do a thing.

That's about how much France and Russia will do too.
