Apparently, there’s a resolution in the UN that wants to reward Iran for its recent openness about its nuke program, and just forget about the past 20 years of its running it covertly. (Story here) Apparently, if we’re nice to them now, they’ll stop trying to build nuclear missiles.
I would like to say for the record that I believe that France &co. (the sponsors of this resolution) are a bunch of suckers, and are going to seriously regret this one day.
I’m not sure if this is just them automatically trying to oppose whatever the US does (the US proposed an essentially opposite resolution a few days ago) or if they seriously believe that Iran is going to be nice to them just because they’ve been secretly (and illegally in several instances, I may add) selling them military technology for a couple of decades.
But if you listen carefully, I’ll bet you can hear the giggling all the way from Tehran.
This bit of political cynicism brought to you by another day of sleep dep and coding…
