This comes as absolutely no surprise....yesterday Iran responded to the U.N.-imposed deadline to stop enriching uranium and shut down its nuclear weapons program. Their response? As we predicted, they told the West to go perform a physical impossibility on itself. Said the crazy little man that runs the terrorist state: "The Iranian nation will not succumb to bullying, invasion and the violation of its rights." That's tough talk from one country...thumbing its nose at the community.

So what's going to happen now?

Absolutely nothing of any consequence --- and the Iranians know it.

Oh sure, President Bush says there must be consequences....and says the United States will pursue sanctions against Iran, even if a majority of the U.N. Security Council won't. But that's just talk. How can I be so sure? Well to find out the real story, you have to read a bit further into the news coverage. You see after the mention of Iran's defiance and the president's response, we see statements from John Bolton at the U.N. that nothing is going to happen until Europe's foreign policy chief meets with Iran's top negotiator.

Delay No. 1.

That's right, we're once again letting the Euro-weasels step in and handle it. The EU will go to Iran and negotiate some sort of slap on the wrist and we'll be right back where we were. Iran is playing this game and they're beating the world at it. They know they have something every country wants.....oil, and lots of it....and they are dealing from a position of strength. So let the "negotiations" begin.

In the meantime .. the U.S. looks weaker and weaker.

And you thought the United States didn't negotiate with terrorists. On the contrary, we just get somebody else to do it for us. The appeasement routine continues with Iran.

I can tell you one thing that we could do this week that would send a signal. Pass a unanimous resolution in the Congress of the United States calling for immediate drilling for oil in the portion of the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge that was set aside for ---- all together now ---- drilling for oil. Follow that up with another resolution opening up all coastlines --- and yes, that includes Florida -- for oil and gas exploration. A 20 mile buffer ought to do it. When that resolution is passed we can get busy on more action to start converting that oil shale in Utah, Nevada and Wyoming into oil, start some coal gasification projects, and start issuing permits for nuclear power plants.

The message here? We're going energy independent ... and bringing the rest of the West with us. Iran can choke on its own oil.

That won't happen though. The environmentalists won't allow it. Remember ... only a portion of the environmental movement in this country is actually dedicated to the preservation of our environment. Many of those clowns are dedicated to something else ... the weakening of America and our capitalist economy. They love seeing the great capitalist giant cower at the feet of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Islamic fascist backers.

Let's all stop to give thanks to the Democrats and their fellow travelers on the left for stripping our country of all resolve to fight for freedom.

And remember ... nothing is worth fighting for that would cause the death of a civilian!
