UN Sanctions Against Iran

Iranian president Ahmadinejad is not going to have a Merry Christmas.

The U.N. unanimously voted Saturday to impose sanctions on Iran in an effort to get Iran to stop it's program of making nuclear weapons.

Iran's U.N. ambassador, Jawed Zarif said, "It is indisputable that nuclear weapons in the hands of the Israeli regime, with an unparalleled record of noncompliance with Security Council resolutions poses a uniquely grave threat to regional and international peace and security."

Nice try buddy! Point your finger the other direction and distract the attention away from yourself. Oldest trick in the book.

Along with freezing Iranian assets, the latest resolution orders all countries to stop supplying Iran with materials and technology that could contribute to its nuclear and missile programs.

Like that is going to happen. Too much cash is slipping through greasy fingers and the prices will most likely rise with the passage of this resolution.

The resolution emphasized the importance of diplomacy in seeking guarantees "that Iran's nuclear program is exclusively for peaceful purposes."

Diplomacy with a man that wants to destroy his neighbors? Yeah! Right!

prying1 sez:
The only way the Iran problem will be solved is if enough unrest is fomented within the country's population to get them to overthrow Iranian president Ahmadinejad. They will need help in doing so but at this point in time who can they trust to help them?

With the cut and run U.S. Congress about to step in I don't think the people of Iran can trust the U.S. to help.
