IRAN UPDATE….China and Russia have agreed to report Iran to the UN Security Council following resumption of their uranium enrichment work. Of course, neither China nor Russia has indicated that their opposition to sanctions has changed, so it’s not clear how meaningful this is. Not to mention that sanctions have a pretty lousy history of working anyway. Still, I suppose it’s a step in the right direction.

The BBC has a roundup of Iranian blogger reaction, including this one from a couple of weeks ago: “They want to deprive Iran of the right to play in the World Cup on the pretext that Iran is building a nuclear weapon.” Maybe this guy is onto something….
