Six Key World Powers Agree to Seek Iran Sanctions, Officials Say


www.foxnews.com

WASHINGTON -- Six major world powers have agreed to begin putting together proposed new sanctions against Iran over its suspect nuclear program after China dropped its opposition, U.S. officials said Wednesday.

China, long a holdout against fresh international penalties against Iran, signaled its willingness Wednesday to consider a U.N. Security Council sanctions resolution, two U.S. government officials said.

That would appear to improve prospects for passing a resolution aimed at increasing economic and diplomatic pressure on Iran to scale back its nuclear ambitions, which Tehran insis

"One of the officials said China had made a commitment to discuss the specifics of a Security Council resolution, and that on that basis the United States would press ahead with an effort to pass such a measure."

This is pretty remarkable. If China is on board maybe we can get something done with the rogue Iran.

Oh wow I am sure Iran is scared now....oh wait probably just the people. It will be just like North Korea where the people starve and live in tyranny based on the decisions by their great leader. It makes me think back to those videos from Tehran and the protests. Man, those poor people.

Many of you might not believe this but sanctions are worst than war. This hits the young, old and weak first. If you compare the years that Clinton put sanctions on Iraq to the war there, sanctions were by far worst and it always kills the innocent.

Iranian people are actually great people, and I hate to see the powers of their country lead them to this.

Um, you can't be serious!

Which war was better than sanctions? WWI, WWII, Korean, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc.

Please elaborate...

Iran has not cooperated with the West to date because there has never been a united Western stance. For whatever reason the West has mounted that political offensive against Iran.

The whole "sanction" talk is a bunch of BS.

You can't sanction a country (4th round sanctions by the way that are meant to be SEVERE, in other words make the population starve and not have food, money, etc.)

It's just a pretext to war. There's no such thing as "sanction".

Why would they sanction Iran? Because it has the right to nuclear power just like every other country, and Israel and U.S. don't want Iran to have that kind of power, since that means they can no longer fund their drug and money laundering businesses anymore?

Think about it for a second. Three rounds of sanctions didn't work, so now they will DAMAGE the population of Iran to CAUSE Iran to go to war, but of course that's not even going to happen because Mossad has false flags ready to go to blame Iran like they did with 9/11 and Afghanistan/Iraq.

It's ridiculous.

Well this is from a few days ago.

Russia does not rule out sanctions against Iran

Reuters
Saturday, March 27, 2010; 1:13 PM

MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Dmitry Medvedev said on Saturday he still supported diplomacy to resolve the dispute over Iran's nuclear program but sanctions should not be ruled out.

"We are convinced that the path of sanctions is not optimal," Medvedev said in a message to the Arab League conference in Sirte, Libya.

"At the same time, such a scenario cannot be excluded,"

Just a little game of give and take.


U.S. and European officials considering new sanctions against Iran have decided to set aside some of the harshest of the measures as they seek broader international agreement in United Nations Security Council negotiations, said diplomats involved in the talks.

In particular, U.S. officials and their allies have decided to drop any attempt to impose a ban on the export or import of refined petroleum products, concluding that such a measure would be rejected by Russia, China and possibly other members of the Security Council, the diplomats said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

It seems like Iran is being found guilty and punished before they commit the crime. As I don't trust the MSM I have issues with the UN placing sanctions on them. Sanctions didn't stop North Korea from getting nukes but it did make life even more miserable for the people who live there.

I agree that this is a sign of an upcoming false flag attack. Where will it be? I'm betting on Europe and the US at the same time. In order to spread sufficient fear, it is going to have to top 9/11. I'm totally NOT looking forward to this...

How about a false flag in China? I don't know why but it would seem the most logical to get them to join the "war on terror" train......

I remember the years of what was down to the Iraq with the sanctions and their starving children, many babies died from starvation!

Yet they had an opportunity to deal with their good friend and admired CIA op, and let the psycho continue to reign, not that they had any right to the Gulf War either! Another illegal massacre of innocents. While the leaders all follow their Saturian Scripts!

If something like this happens, we the people will have to get an organization going and start sending aid, forumula and help. Not one more hair on one more child anywhere in this world to be sacrificed to those evil dark hearted creatures!!!!!! They are attempting to chain us with karma. We can't allow anyone to go without and need to demand the leaders stop ALL WARS, and redistribute ALL GOODS and free energy.
