U.S. to Impose 'Significant Regime of Sanctions' Against Iran, Obama Says
Fox News ^ | Feb.9, 2010

Posted on 02/09/2010 12:42:48 PM PST by COUNTrecount

President Obama said Tuesday that he's "bent over backwards" to engage Iran in "constructive" dialogue and said the U.S. will move to sanction the country, which has begun enriching uranium to levels capable of making an atomic bomb.

Obama told reporters during a rare press conference Tuesday that the U.S. is developing a "significant regime of sanctions" in response to the Islamic Republic's move to enrich uranium to 20 percent purity level in defiance of world powers.

"That indicates to us that despite their posturing that their nuclear power is only for, for civilian use that they in fact continue to pursue a course that would lead to weaponization," Obama said. "That is not acceptable to the international community.

Obama said the process toward adding new sanctions is moving along quickly, but he gave no specific timeline.

Bent over backwards? I think not. Wrong direction noted, Barry.

I’ll bet we “strongly express our dissatisfaction.”
Take that.

I thought the Left said that sanctions were hurting Iraqi citizens.

I guess it’s okay to “hurt” Iranian citizens.

Another angry letter from Dear Leader will set them straight. On Thursday when people are dying on the streets of Tehran, I am sure those threats of sanctions(which the Chi-coms will block in the UN) will scare the sh!t out of Amma-nutjob and Khameni.

The world has taken the measure of Obama and they neither fear nor respect him. Impotent is the word I can best use to describe our feckless POTUS.

Did anyone notice that he is covering Palin’s talking points from her speech Saturday? She mentioned a tough stance on Iran (and said sanctions), and she talked about the need for more energy/aka drill in the US. There may be more but those two for sure

Um, is he having trouble coming up with this stuff for himself?

Well no sh*t sherlock, this is something many of us have
known from the very beginning.
If it wasn’t going to cost Israeli or American lives, I’d
say it serves him right. Damn liberal “intellectuals” are
as smart as a box of rocks.

Dear Mr. President,

Iran did not unclench its fist.

It shoved it up your ass.

Thank you very much for the safety and security your administration provides.

Nah, just kidding.

Your FAILURE is our new status quo.

Feel free to resign immediately you useless eater.

Sincerely,

The American Citizens
