If I understand what Ron Paul was saying these sanctions actually demand Iran to stop all nuclear programs, to stop doing doing things which they are allowed to do under international treaties which have been agreed upon. There are already treaties in place which stop them from undertaking certain dangerous nuclear projects as far as I'm aware. These new sanctions do nothing but place ridiculous limits on what they can do and it confirms the "Iran obsession" because in reality they don't have anywhere near the resources to launch a real attack against the US. And they know full well what the repercussions of launching such an attack would be, it would result in the swift removal of their nation from the face of the Earth. Not even they are so stupid, and as Ron Paul states their history in the war game is rather moderate and not note worthy... especially if you want to compare them to blood thirsty terrorist nations willing to spend trillions on the war machine... such as the United States.
well without the sanctions the Iranians have full force to develop their nuclear weapons and destroy Israel which despite the leftist rhetoric that you keep on hearing that is the main goal to them!
