IAEA passes resolution rebuking Iran over nuclear cover-up

U.S.: Iran to face consequences for nuclear defiance

"The United Nations nuclear watchdog's vote to rebuke Iran on Friday should send a clear message that Tehran will face consequences if it fails to engage with major powers on the nuclear issue, a senior U.S. official said. "

This is such a joke. How long have they been playing this game with Iran now, seven years?! What have sanctions done to stop their advance and research in obtaining the materials needed to make a nuclear weapon? None that I can tell!

Diplomats: Iran censured at UN nuclear meeting

Iran remained defiant, with its chief representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency declaring that his country would resist "pressure, resolutions, sanction(s) and threat of military attack."
Delegate Ali Asghar Soltanieh of Iran shrugged off the vote.
"Neither resolutions of the board of governors nor those of the United Nations Security Council ... neither sanctions nor the threat of military attacks can interrupt peaceful nuclear activities in Iran, even a second," he told the closed-door meeting, in remarks made available to reporters.

Well, there you have it from the horses mouth!
