Rice: Iran Can't Have Nuclear Weapons Capability

That part I agree with. But just read the first sentence of the article. (Emphasis added.)

Momentum is building to refer Iran to the United Nations Security Council for possible sanctions. Britain, France and Germany, the three countries that make up the European Union-3 that has been negotiating with Iran, have drafted a resolution that seeks a Security Council referral.

While sometimes political pressure works, remember:
sanctions, political pressure, rhetoric, UN Resolutions - all of those were used against Saddam Hussein.
But not even being driven out of Kuwait slowed him. In fact, nothing stopped him from raping, torturing and killing his people for decades.
That should really show the futility of all this. Possible sanctions?
