Going Through the Motions

President Bush has no option other than to go through these motions. I fully expect Iran to thumb its nose at Western civilization at every turn. They are working to a plan.

This 'diplomatic' effort will fail, of course, and we'll get to sanctions, which will also fail.

My sense is that Iran is bent on provoking a first move by the West, which will justify its retaliatory response. I further believe, although completely unsubstantiated, is that retaliatory response will be directed at Israel.

Visors down, folks. Things are going to get rough.
