- derailing Obama's peace process and taking the heat off of Netanyahu's bottom! (Juan Cole puts it best!)
- derailing Iran's green movement and diverting attention from the MAIN problem of IRI, which is Ahmadinejad (and his ilk)

I am not going to repeat myself here!
I am appalled by Obama (one can hardly expect more from Sarkozy or Brown) for acting the way they did.
IRI is RIGHT: the West is better off not loosing this chance, and should negotiate with Iran respectfully.
IRI has not violated IAEA regulations, and the Western fear mongering is
If you don't want a nuclear race in the Middle East, NEGOTIATE with Iran AND disarm Israel! Press Iran on it's democratic problems; not because you give a damn about people's lives and freedom, but because you can entice the IRI to "enjoy" your capitalist investments and economic participation if they behave democratically--because when it comes to nuclear WMD, your buddy Israel strips you of legitimacy!
Use your carrots carefully and keep your stick at home!
IRGC cannot recruit enough soldiers to "go to fight" with any nation--and they have reiterated that "first strike" is NOT on IRI's agenda (as it has NEVER BEEN BEFORE, attested to by history). But should anyone act offensively, we WILL unite to defend Iran! Now, please don't force us to unite behind IRGC, okey?!
As fiercely as I hate Ahmadinejad, I shall hate you if you sanction Iran!
