Question: with Iran pulling its funds out of European banks as a pre-emptive move against possible sanctions over its nuclear program, does this sound like Iran is planning on going ahead with its nuclear programs?

Which, as I've asked before, begs the question of why even bother with sanctions and referrals to the UN Security Council? Iran isn't going to comply with any form of plea, they're not going to comply with any form of censure, they're not going to comply because sanctions are imposed... they're not going to voluntarily comply, period. And, if stupidity is defined as doing the same thing and expecting a different result, a close second is hoping for a result from actions that we all realize have no chance whatsoever of accomplishing that reslt.

Iran will need to be forced to give up its nuclear programs... and the longer it takes for our President to get to that point the harder and more bloody it will be.
