The UN Finds the Courage?

UN sanctions against Iran... but keep it quiet.
"UNITED NATIONS, Dec. 23 -- The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously Saturday to restrict Iran's trade in sensitive nuclear materials and to freeze the assets of 22 Iranian officials and institutions linked to the country's most controversial nuclear programs.

The council's action culminated more than three years of diplomatic efforts by the United States to have Iran sanctioned for expanding its enrichment of uranium." -more

OK! So here's the question. Has the UN ended the year by showing that it understands the Iranian threat? Are we finishing 2006 on an up note? Or will 2007 prove UN's latest "stance" to have been a meaningless gesture?

What's your prediction for the UN in 2007?

Is it going to be a happy new year?
