Iran and Holocaust Denial II

And my reaction to the previous blog:

The worst thing about all of this is that I doubt they'll be successful at prosecuting Iran. The world would rather naively believe that nothing will happen than for once stand up to prevent a genocide. I mean, really, the United Nations was formed for that purpose, and what has it done to date?

Look at Darfur, the UN still doesn't have troops there. Why? Because it's Arab aggressors against a non-Arab minority. Because it's politics, and enough Arab countries will join their votes together to prevent any actions against an Arab country. Not to mention the countries that have tried to befriend this terrorist supporting and inciting regime. Russia and China would rather sell weapons to and gain political clout with Iran and Syria (and by proxy Hizballah and Hamas) than actually take actions against blatant terrorism. That's why it took so long to get even minimal sanctions pass against Iran, and the language on the latest Lebanon resolution lacked any teeth to enforce it. In contrast, how many resolutions has the UN general assembly passed against Israel?
