Seems the Obama Administration has decided to delay those brand new sanctions against anybody involved with Iran's ballistic missile program(s).

New sanctions were announced the other day all set to be "signed off".

But *suddenly* the White House delays everything.

Can't imagine why?

The Iran nuke deal is all set to take effect soon too.

Could be the whole Iran-Nuke ruse is falling apart before it even starts.

Did anybody even discuss missiles during the so-called "Negotiations"?



White House Delays Imposing New Sanctions on Iran for Missile Program


The White House has delayed its plan to impose new financial sanctions on Iran for its ballistic missile program, according to U.S. officials, amid growing tensions with Iran over the nuclear deal struck earlier this year.

The officials said the Obama administration remains committed to combating Iran’s missile program and that sanctions being developed by the U.S. Treasury Department remain on the table. They also said imposing such penalties was legal under the landmark nuclear agreement forged between global powers and Iran in July.

U.S. officials offered no definitive timeline for when the sanctions would be imposed after the decision was made Wednesday to delay them. At one point, they were scheduled to be announced Wednesday morning in Washington, according to a notification the White House sent to Congress.

Another flip flopping moves by US . The speak about possible sanctions may have just been lip service to a few ME countries wanting the US to do something . MoA has a new piece up ....

Israel, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Pakistan and the U.S. all have ballistic missiles that can hit Iran. Why should Iran not have a capability to deter them with its own ballistic missile force? Given that Iran has no nuclear weapons program there is no sound reason to deny it conventional missile capabilities. China, Russia and the Europeans accept that and will prevent any UN sanctions over the issue.

Only after Iran made it clear that it will not take part in the childish games the Obama administration wanted to play did the administration retract.

It was falling apart before it ever got started. Khamenei had no intention of following through on the agreement and they've never signed off on it. It's only a verbal agreement at this point and we know how well Iran keeps its word.

President to aide: Is it in yet?

Aide: I'm sorry Mr. President but they are still waiting for that spine donor. The extra starch that's put into your shirts should keep you standing up.

I just don't understand this president and his thought process, other than it appearing he has no thought. This was like when he told Medveded he had more room politically after his reelection to deal with our nmd systems.

His last day in office cant get here soon enough (provided we survive his remaining term).

Kerry is such a terrible Secretary of State.

My god.

Foreign Policy is not the Obama Administration's strong suit. And that's one of the main things all conservatives were right about before he was elected in 2008.

I expect when the new GOP POTUS is sworn in next year, all that 'talkin' with other nations is likely to stop. I may not like the GOP in general, but they are usually a bit better at this part of the job. ( outside of all the war mongering)
