"The international community will not stand by..."

Babble on.

Am I the only one who's curious to find out what exactly the Globe is advocating? I mean, what if the UNSC sticks to form, and proves unwilling to condemn Iranian perfidity regarding their not-so-hidden weapons programme? Should another Coalition of the Willing "unilaterally" target Iran's nuclear infrastructure for military action? Should Canada participate in a "unilateral" Bush-doctrine hammer-blow on a Muslim nation?

Even if the UNSC manages to pull its thumb out in short order, what action should it take? A UN-approved military action? Should the world spank the Iranians with sanctions? How would those sanctions be enforced, and by whom? Would we exhume the Food for Palaces monster so as not to "punish the Iranian people?"

With flaccid pronouncements such as this, I suspect the editors at the Globe and Mail are like the British bobby who, with dubious effect, yells at today's armed criminal "Stop! or I'll say Stop! again."

Babble off.

The international community will just stand by. That's its nature.
