EU Says It's Too Early to Punish Iran

The European Union Said Friday that it's still much too early to punish Iran for it's recalcitrance toward demands that it suspend it's uranium enrichment program. "This is not the time or place for sanctions", Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja said after a meeting of the bloc's foreign ministers. "For the EU, diplomacy remains the No. 1 way forward. In any event, the haven't actually used nuclear weapons on anyone yet, have they? I mean, you can't very well arrest a man for shooting someone before he's even obtained the gun, can you?"
