The UN has given Iran to the end of August to halt enrichment of uranium and accept the West's incentive package. If they don't comply and accept
the package, a UN resolution will impose diplomatic and economic sanctions against Iran. The resolution also demands all countries not to sell or
transfer any material that could help Iran's enrichment and ballistic missile programs.
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. Security Council passed a weakened resolution Monday giving Iran until Aug. 31 to suspend uranium enrichment or face
the threat of economic and diplomatic sanctions. Iran immediately rejected the council action, saying it would only make negotiations more difficult
concerning a package of incentives offered in June for it to suspend enrichment.
Drafted by Britain, France and Germany with U.S. backing, the resolution follows a July 12 agreement — by the foreign ministers of those four
countries, plus Russia and China — to refer Tehran to the Security Council for not responding to the incentives package.

Here we go again, UN sanctions to try to stop a rogue government from acquiring WMD. Is it going to work this time? Is the UN going to stand behind
their resolutions if Iran doesn't comply?
This is sure starting to look like the UN - Iraq BS all over again. And it's probably going to end up the same way. The sanctions against this
country won't stop them from doing whatever they want to do, even if the rest of the world is against them.
I think the end result is going to be another war.
