WASHINGTON (AP) — The Bush administration on Wednesday imposed financial sanctions on an Iranian state-owned financial institution for allegedly providing financial services in support of the country's weapons program.
These efforts demonstrate that Iran’s nuclear enrichment program, pursued in defiance of the UN Security Council and the International Atomic Energy Agency, has an ever-increasing price. We hope that like-minded countries will enact similar steps.”
It spits the same rhetoric and words of wars, already has nuclear weapons, and can't be trusted as much as any other country can.

I agree with alot of you say. Thank you for your response.
How can you say this about Iran? We see the rights their leaders give them. We see the religious propaganda. Although the US beats the drums of war, they appear to be directing a change to a one world culture & gov't.... (which is what you seem to support)
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Bush administration is imposing new sanctions on Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, accusing the elite military unit of illegal trade in missile technology and weapons of mass destruction.
Elements of the Revolutionary Guard are already penalized under an order that took effect last year but Thursday's announcement by the State Department covers the entire organization along with 12 other private companies and military units from China, North and South Korea, Russia, Sudan, Syria and the United Arab Emirates.
The sanctions, which are valid for two years, bar any U.S. aid, contracts and arms sales or other defense transfers to any of the identified entities. It was not immediately clear if the U.S. government does business with any of them.
