handling Iran is tricky...

This collage was done recently for The Nation, to accompany a story by Robert Dreyfuss. How should we best move forward when it comes to the volatile situation that Iran presents? On the one hand, trying to get the Permanent Five at the UN to agree to harsher measures, in the face of Russian and Chinese reluctance; on the other, the administration's uneasiness at the firebrands in Congress who are in the final stages of crafting legislation that will probably compel the administration to take punitive measures against third parties (foreign corporations or countries) doing business with Iran. I don't dare say I know the best course, but I can see that the situation is potentially "explosive".
