Iran To Go To The Security Council?

Referring anything to the UN these days may seem like an utter waste of time, but sending the matter of Iran's non-proliferation treaty violations to the Security Council is not a toothless gesture.

It would help the White House establish its legal case against Iran in the event that push comes to shove. Imagine too if France referred the matter to the Security Council on behalf of the EU. We would all be in danger of actually appearing to be united in the War on Terror. Iran might notice that.

North Korea would notice it too. They too have been threatened with referral to the Security Council.

What better time than now, during this month's conference on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty? (And remind your liberal friends that the U.S. acquisition of nuclear weapons does not constitute 'proliferation'. We already have them. We have proliferated about as much as we can).
