A few minutes later, Li asked why Israel, a U.S. ally that many suspect would attack Iran before allowing it to have a nuclear weapon, has been allowed to amass a nuclear arsenal. "The whole key here is whether you are an American ally or not. If you are an American ally, everything is solved. If not, then everything is a problem," said Li, his voice rising in irritation. "Don't talk about any treaties, don't talk about any rules, it's, 'If I trust you there's no problem.' "
the US cant pass sanctions on its own
"I have indicated it was not in conformity with the UN charter from our point of view, from the charter point of view, it was illegal." - Kofi Annan
The United States has vetoed 35 UN resolutions related to the middle east. (Palestine; 24, Lebanon; 8, Syria; 1, Libya; 2)

Well that didnt take long LOL. Looks like the US is going to continue to push for sanctions because this deal that Iran made was outside of the security council.
