…and finds them toothless.

Iran isn’t backing down after a unanimous vote by the U.N. Security Council to impose sanctions, announcing Sunday that it will partially suspend cooperation with the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency and will be adjusting relations with those nations who voted for sanctions.

Iranian officials called the vote by the U.N. Security Council in response to Tehran’s refusal to stop enriching uranium “illegal and bullying.”

And the response was obviously not something the UN wanted. Imagine that.

In response to the vote, the Iranian Cabinet also decided to stop informing the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency of any new steps or decisions in its nuclear weapons program, Gholam Hossein Elham, a government spokesman said on state television.

Some folks say that Ahmadinejad is a bad apple and that his actions and his genocidal statements are just the way he gets attention, but this is the Cabinet making the UN look less than useless. In fact, other than the accompanying picture, Ahmadinejad doesn’t make an appearance in this story. The problems run far deeper than him.
