The biggest news of the year, possibly

The American media has finally, finally begun reporting on the Greek/European economic mess. Last evening, CBS had a report from Brian Williams on it. It was brief but it was something. Then, today, NPR had a story. There just hasn't been near the coverage of the story that there should have been, given both the size of the story and its ramifications. But big as that story is, the one story that will be far bigger than that is reflected in the report out today that the UN formally announced that it believes--has proof?--that Iran is working on making nuclear weapons. All bets are now off. With this declaration from the UN, that Iran is doing work specific to make nuclear arms--whether it's true or not (I suspect it is)--it's war for Israel. Or at least it means Israel will attack Iran and likely very soon.. I don't think we have any other conclusion but that it will mean war for the Middle East. As Margo Channing so aptly said in the movie, "All About Eve", "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night." For the world, however, it will at least be a bumpy year, once it begins.
