An Iranian technician works at the Isfahan Uranium Conversion Facilities (UCF), south of Tehran on 3 February. Iran reaffirmed it has no intention of suspending sensitive uranium enrichment despite a looming UN deadline, saying there were other ways to end the nuclear standoff with the West.
Iran will not agree to suspend uranium enrichment as demanded by the U.N. Security Council, which has given Tehran until February 21 to halt sensitive atomic work, the Foreign Ministry said on Sunday.
The United Nations slapped sanctions on Iran in December, barring the transfer of sensitive materials and know-how to the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program. It threatened further action if Iran did not heed U.N. demands.
How long will Israel and the United States tolerate this charade?
Will Israel strike unilaterally (with quiescent American support) due to the isolationist rhetoric coming from the Democrats in Congress?
More probable than not…….
