Posted on 03/03/2012 9:41:11 AM PST by Innovative
The U.S. Agriculture Department sale of 120,000 tons of red winter wheat to Iran will be delivered by May 31. It is not clear how the country will pay for the wheat given monetary sanctions and it is not certain the Treasury Department approved the deal in advance, as required.

This is beyond insane...it's bordering on treason -- aiding and abetting our dangerous enemies.
And not even trying to get Iran to give up their nuclear program, as a condition...
TREASON.........UH........TREASON anyone! ANYONE!!!! We are now feeding our enemies. I am begining to dislike the GOP even more than the rats for thier deafening silence. Someone check the vital signs of the GOP I think thier dead
It looks like Obama didn’t ask or get Congressional approval, he just decided it on his own.
We should we feed people who want to kill us?
This effectively breaks the embargo against Iran. That will really let them know we are serious. sarc/ What a joke Hussein has become!
Another article I just found:
Only Crippling Sanctions Will Stop Iran
“If Western nations wish to avoid a military confrontation in the Persian Gulf and prevent a nuclear Iran, they must adopt crippling sanctions that will bring Iran’s economy to the brink of collapse. That means a complete United Nations-imposed oil embargo enforced by a naval blockade, as well as total diplomatic isolation. And they must warn Iran that if it tries to jump the last wall, the West is willing and capable of inflicting devastating harm. “
Instead, Obama is feeding them, which, naturally encourages them. Does Obama want to see Israel wiped off the map by Iran? One starts to wonder...
“What a joke Hussein has become!”
Actually, the problem is that he is not a joke, he is a real danger to Israel, the US and the world...
“I don’t bluff...”
Have at ‘em Israel, Hussein is undercutting you.
In the meantime, some deluded Jewish voters still plan to vote for him...
Dem pollster: No danger of Obama losing the Jewish vote
“According to Gerstein, Democrats still maintained a 66 to 31 percent advantage among Jewish voters in the 2010 midterms - in a year where the GOP won in a landslide. Jewish voters voted for Democrats in greater numbers than other key Democratic constituencies, including unmarried women, Hispanics and voters under 30.
In July J Street polling, Jews disapprove of the tea party movement 74 percent, with 12 percent approval. They disapprove of Mitt Romney 60 percent to 16 percent, and they disapprove of former President George W. Bush 73 percent to to 16 percent. In the same survey, Obama is above water 56 percent to 34 percent - numbers similar to a recent Gallup polls from the fall that showed Obama at 54 percent to 41 percent.”
“Barack! Another F on your report card?”
“Mom, you’re nothing but a racist.”
When used correctly, food/hunger is the greatest weapon ever devised. Let them starve for a while. Then watch the Iranian people overthrow their ‘rulers’.
Same with North Korea.
IMPEACH OBAMA NOW! THIS IS PURE TREASON!
Why the HELL are we NOT using food as a weapon against these animals?
Announced on the same day we get news that Pastor Yousef has been hanged for the crime of refusing to renounce his Christian faith.
“against these animals?”
Please don’t insult the animals.
The Iran regime is pure evil.
It’s not just Iran, it is the whole of the mid east,
Why are we not using food as a weapon against the likes of say saudi arabia and their brand of screw the west? Same for Iran, Syria, Egypt and Pakistan and Afganistan?
