Of course we still trade with them...$$$ trumps all else.

Russia is in some ways as bad as it was when it was the head of the Soviet Union, only weaker.
This is to be expected of the PRC; they are still Communist-controlled, after all.

Well, let the Israelis take care of them- they have both the fewest inhibitions and the strongest incentive.

"And we continue to trade with the Chicoms & Russkies?"
I realize this may come as a shock to you, but not every nation on Earth has the same interests as the United States and it's unrealistic to expect them to do everything the US commands.

Maybe we took out Saddam Hussein too soon. It was Iraq that bombed earlier Iranian nuclear facilities in 1980. If my memory serves me right, I don't recall any talk of UN sanctions at the time, nor do I recall the USA, Britain, Russia, China, or France voicing objections to the bombings.
With Wal-Mart now and selling 70% Chicom-made products, the chance that the gummint will mess with the Chicom UN situation are nil, zero, nada! The gummint will also fail to mess with the Ruskies, a "democratic nation" with confirmed commies still in charge who are reviving their past mistakes.
Putin is heading Russia right back to the era of the USSR but this time it's corporate in addition to being military, with the use of proxies (Iran, Syria, North Korea, etc).
