Completely agreed could me that we completely agree to disagree; therefore we agree that no action will be taken.

I think what is more important than another set of watered down meaningless UN sanctions is the Iranian reaction to them. I would look for some type of military/economic/diplomatic provcation from Iran in the near future.

Prohibition brought us into the era of organized crime, China and Russia will be falling over themselves raising their prices by 50% on sanctioned goods and smuggling them there, times never change. Unless we blockade them and search every ship coming and going, which isn’t going to happen, then this whole charade is pointless.

Cutting every gasoline pipeline and source might have an effect on stirring up the people, but no one has the testicular fortitude to stand up to Russia and China.

Two billion nuclear armed commies with all the financial resources, manufacturing capacity, and scientific knowledge they can possibly use. Unlike Iran, Hammas, Syria and North Korea standing up to China should induce a bit of fear.

I agree completely, which is why this won’t work. For the life of me I can’t figure out why China is willing to let Iran continue on like this, it’s not like whoever replaces them won’t sell every drop of oil or puff of gas to China the instant the shooting stops, and a stable Middle East is in everyone’s best interest. China is having some problems with Islam now also, I can’t believe they want a nuclear armed whackjob that hates them just a tiny bit less than they do us.

The PC West cannot deal with Islam. China, with no rules, plenty of resources and, thanks to the one child policy, a surplus male population almost as large as the entire US population is quite willing to trade blows with Islam. They will Drive the Islamics west to bring down Europe and the US in the same way that the rise of Mongol China drove the Huns, Vandals and Visigoths west to destroy Rome.

The main result of the "sanctions" will be to provide Nutjob with another pretext to attract some attention. Will he go too far this time? Galilee? Gaza?

“The main result of the “sanctions” will be to provide Nutjob with another pretext to attract some attention. Will he go too far this time? Galilee? Gaza?”

My guess is Galilee. However, we can’t rule out him pulling some stupid move in the Persian Gulf - like when he had those Brit sailors detained for a couple weeks a few years back.

Good points. China is definitely the chess master on the world strategic stage. Don’t forget to add their playing us on N.Korea to wield influence against us on Taiwan, and ultimately S.Korea, Japan and the Philippines. That gives them total control of Greater Asia and will be able to effectively combat the rise of radical Islam in Indonesia.

Sanctions don’t work on Iran. They won’t do without. We need to nuke the hell out of them and NOW. Sanctions against N. Korea ended up with them obtaining nukes. Time to do a Harry Truman and stop being so weak

Double Secret is only the beginning. To follow: One REALLY stern letter and one private letter from Hillary that will promise a personal visit and a stern lecture. The Iranians will soon reap the rewards from the folly that they have sown. /s

Trouble is ‘Reuters’ likes to be first but they often get things wrong for that or at least twisted....will see how the others report...even then what’s reported isn’t always the way things will go on the world stage.

Fanatics don’t give a damn about sanctions. If you tell me all of their weqpons trade is now cut off, there’s an oil boycott, and a naval blockade, then I’ll pay attention to sanctions.

UN sanctions = BFD

Iranian reactions to international pressure on their nuke program = real world consequences.

Many analysts speculate Iran really pushed Hezbollah hard back in 2006 to increase tension on the northern Israeli border to deflect attention from international efforts to curb their nuke program . . . and we ended up with a war.

The only thing that will stop their nuclear program, are Israeli bombs.

I am very skeptical of sources saying Russia now wants to sanction Iran, to say the least. While ordinary Russian people are largely honorable people and genuien Christians with loyalty to God and country, as opposed to the rest of Europe, their government really does seem at times to be Soviet in all but name. And now it seems they are shifting loyalties at the drop of a hat. This is the kind of thing that makes you wish they’d go back to the Czarist days of Peter the Great. At least then we would know for sure where they stand at all times with regard to the militant Islamic world.
