White House Keeps Sanctions on Table After Iran Announces Nuclear Fuel Deal

FOXNews.com

The White House said Monday that it would continue to pursue sanctions against Iran after the country went around the United States to strike a nuclear fuel swap deal similar to the Western-backed plan that fell apart last fall.

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. Also in light of recent news that Iran will choke off the world oil supply if sanctions are placed upon them, i guess now we get to see if they will put their money where their mouth is.

Yep now with this deal, China is unlikely to support sanctions.


China called US/Israel's BS...


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 hypocrisy of american policy...towards Israel and Iran...

And no sanctions against Iran mean Israel more likely to attack them, and since a deal has been made, lots of people will hate Israel for attacking Iran with almost no provocations.

The US and European countries can pass sanctions outside the UN. It wont be the first time. Heck the UN vetoed military action against Iraq and the US just circumvented it with a "coalition of the willing". Same thing will happen here-the US (and Europe) are just going through the "proper channels" first before doing whatb they want.

And before folks start yapping about Russia, China etc, remember that those other times they talked big as well and the West did what they wanted to anyway. It wont be any different this time.

Economic based sanctions which cut Russia and China out wont do any good if Iran is trading with Russia and China...

Unlike attacking a country, sanctions is more like blackballing a country. Blackballing a country does not do any good if it's not done by everyone.

I salute Turkey and Brazil for their diplomacy in this deal. It is great to see two historically American lackeys offering an alternative way of dealing with the Iranian nuclear programme.

American domination is clearly on the wain.

But they can just invade other countries without UN Approval!


"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

Iraq War illegal says Annan

Even better!


The United States has vetoed 35 UN resolutions related to the middle east. (Palestine; 24, Lebanon; 8, Syria; 1, Libya; 2)

whatreallyhappened.com...

US Vetoes of UN Resolutions that were Critical of Israel (1976-2006)

Don't pretend for a second the US is even the slightest bit concerned by a UN Resolution or Veto.

I hardly see how they think they have the legal justification to do that. Swapping the fuel for outside enrichment is a valid option under the NPT.

Pressing on with sanctions regardless of anything Iran does clearly shows the real agenda here.
