Sanctions, schmanctions. Like that really matters anyway. We have been sanctioning Iran for years and obviously it hasn't stooped their pursuit of
nuclear "power", which was the intended outcome all along.
What is obvious to me, is how quickly the UN jumped onboard with the whole retaliation plan. Makes me wonder how much money or how many weapons were
"donated" for that to have happened.
Iran is no saint. But this whole plot was just plain stupid and Iran is not stupid. An Iranian-American is going to be given 1.5M to shop around for
an assassin..,.within the drug cartel organization? First, the cartels don't negotiate with anyone, they just kill people, behead them, and leave
them hanging from bridges. Had this guy approached them, it would be far more likely that they would have just killed him. Given the whole Fast and
Furious debacle, I can't imagine a cartel member trusting any American....Iranian or not.
Furthermore, if Iran is incapable of actually ordering an assassination and following through on their own, instead of needing to outsource it, it
shows you how incapable they are, so what's the threat anyway???
You have to look at the pros and cons list. What benefit is there to Iran if the ambassador from Saudi Arabia is killed? Showing a security
weakness? Encouraging others to try and kill people on US soil? I thought that was the purpose of alQaida.
