For many years the European countries have used a carrot and stick policy towards Iranian regime to make the Mullahs abandon their pursuit of nuclear weapons technology.
This policy after three years has proven unsuccessful and we are once again back to where we started. The Mullahs have eaten the carrot but dodged the stick.
Iran not only has restarted its Isfehan USF nuclear operations transforming uranium but also has introduced plans to open a new nuclear plant.
Iran should be immediately referred to the United Nations Security Council because any other action will give this regime more time to complete its nuclear weapons program.
