No one seems to hav the magic answer for Iran. They are a sovereign nation and not afraid to flaunt it.

Talking tough does nothing, they are completely unaffected by our "words." There have been an occassion or so where they may have feigned cooperation, but that was it. This problem is not the US's alone. We cannot isolate Iran without global cooperation. Again, no magic answer.
