EU Tells IAEA Iran Must Stop Enrichment Program

Unlike my earlier post, this is not going to be fun to watch.
Iran must stop uranium enrichment work and cooperate fully with United Nations inspectors if it is to avoid scrutiny from the UN Security Council, the European Union told a meeting of the UN nuclear watchdog, the IAEA.

Thomas Seltzer, Austria's representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency, said that if Iran failed to comply, "the Security Council should now put its weight behind the (IAEA) board's requests and the IAEA's efforts to resolve outstanding questions."

And you just know Iran wants to fully comply and stop their enrichment program.

Don't make me laugh.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned western powers on Wednesday that they would regret their efforts to stand in the way of Iran acquiring nuclear capabilities.


If anyone shows aggression to the Iranian nation’s rights, Iran will wipe the dark stain of regret on their foreheads,” he added.

This isn't gonna be pretty at all. Ahmadinejad is asking to be attacked and that's just what Bush wants to do.

Update: It seems Ahmadinejad really does have a death wish.
Iran threatened the United States with "harm and pain" Wednesday for its role in hauling Tehran before the U.N. Security Council over its nuclear program.
