What Happened to That Deadline?

Weeks have passed since the “deadline” for the Iranian regime to accept the deal that offered to enrich their uranium for them. In public, the Iranians keep telling us “no” and that they aren’t giving up the promise of a nuclear-armed revolutionary Islamic state:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday reiterated that his country’s rights on “the nuclear issue” are non-negotiable and its nuclear activities and cooperation happen within the framework of IAEA regulations, according to at report on the Iranian student news agency ISNA.

“Iran is ready for constructive and honest cooperation with western countries in the field of nuclear technology,” he was quoted by ISNA as saying, while warning that the West’s confrontation with Iran only makes the country “more powerful and more developed.”

And oh, by the way, Ahmadinejad tells us that the media are “the lever of international Zionism to dominate the entire world.” So are we done yet? The Obami have gotten their answer and have done nothing. Where are the sanctions, the other options, and the “international community”? It seems nowhere. The Obami, we were told, had a Plan B if engagement failed. Yet it has, though they are loath to tell anyone. But the Iranians gleefully observe our paralysis and move apace with their nuclear program.

Do you feel safer yet?
