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.

It will be not war . . .

Iran said no already to stopping their nuclear program . . .

When the sections comes to be implemented China will opposed to it . . .

HONG KONG (MarketWatch) -- China and Iran reportedly are near the final stages of a multibillion-dollar oil deal under which the mainland's state-owned China Petrochemical Corp., or Sinopec Group, would take a 51% stake in the development of an oil field along Iran's southern border near Iraq.

If nothing has change yet China has to much money in Iran to let US take control of Iran oil reserves with another war . . .

US pretty much have most of the middle east in its oil barons hands already and China wants a piece of it too. . .

This is something that will be worth keeping an eye on when the death line comes up.

Oil wars. . .
