Iran threatens revenge if referred to the UN

Well, the mullahs didn't take kindly to being referred to the UN Security CouncilIran threatens revenge as nuclear row heads for UN - World - Times Online:

After America, Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia agreed that they would vote at an emergency meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) tomorrow for the case to be sent to the UN, Iran reacted in anger.

“We will never abandon our rights to nuclear technology and, if referred to the Security Council, Iran will stop voluntary implementation of the additional protocol,” said President Ahmadinejad, quoted by state television.

According to an IAEA report, the Iranians are already beginning preparations for full-scale uranium enrichment. And Ali Larijani, the chief Iranian nuclear negotiator, also threatened to retaliate in the Middle East against the interests of those countries taking action against Iran. “If these countries use all their means ...to put pressure on Iran, Iran will use its capacity in the region,” he said.

I'd say let's use some of our capacity on them.
Sooner rather than later.
