The ever-predictable Iran nuclear showdown continues...

If you didn't see this one coming, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn you might be interested in. Iran is not backing down:

UN says Iran plans nuclear development

Compouding the farce:

A top State Department official said it would be a "major miscalculation" by Iranian authorities if they carry out the reported plan.

"If Iran takes this step, it is going to confront universal international opposition," said U.S. Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns. "If they think they can get away with 3,000 centrifuges without another Security Council resolution and additional international pressure, then they are very badly mistaken."

Yes, that's right, Iran--we're sternly wagging our finger at you! And if you don't back down...we'll sternly wag our finger at you some more!

And if you still won't succumb...yes, you guessed it--more finger wagging!

...Hey, why not? Look how well it worked with North Korea.
