That is correct fush hawk but only if the 17 resolutions are spread out over 11 years. Kudos on recognizing the crucial benchmark that has been set in these situations!
Merry Christmas :)

it's a slap in their face that they desperately wanted to avoid. It might just make things worse, but it is an important development.

Possibly you're correct they wished to avoid the sanctions, but I'm sure they expected them anyway and are prepared to weather the storm. They care not a bit for international scorn. In fact they revel in such sentiments. I don't think it's that important except as to how the timing affects the progress of events. They knew it was bound to happen and they tried to delay and delay but eventually even the UN is bound to get off the dime and act. Well okay...not really act so they signed the official wrist slap paperwork. Now it's up to either us or Israel to act.

That helmet, the symbol, and the color of it, tells one all they need to know about the U.N. and it's current make up.

Yes, they ordered 500 of them.
Having them isn't the same as being able to put enough of them on each target to make a difference.

Fantastic! This is exactly the kind of tough line we must take against crazed fanatics with nuclear ambitions because sanctions worked so well with Cuba, Iraq, ... oh, wait!

"But there are numerous qualifications, including exempting contracts made prior to the adoption of the resolution.

At the last moment, Russia succeeded in deleting Iran's Aerospace Industries Organization, which produces missiles, but left three of its subsidiaries on the list.

Russia was also successful in scrapping a mandatory travel ban. Instead, the resolution now calls on states to notify a Security Council sanctions committee if any of the individuals on the list are in their countries."

And these people are our "allies"

We're all in a lot of trouble here. I realize I'm not coming down off the mountain with the tablets here. Meanwhile, libs are more concerned with SUV exhaust, trans fat bans and banning smoking. Talk about fiddling while Rome burns...

The last time we got a sanction against an Axis member a couple of months later, we are bombing.

Just sayin...

Isreal will be doing it with some help from us. We will probably supply them with some nice bumker buster bombs and the sorts.
