UN resolution would increase sanctions against Iran, including export restrictions


Jesus H Christ with nukes. He not only walks on water, he can launch nukes from there.

Is there one single person in the Bush administration who isn't a fucking asshole? Or more likely Bush's sycophant? I think syco is exactly right, but spelled wrong. I wouldn't know because I can't spell and am to lazy ass to look it up.

Russia tried to downplay the severity of new Iran sanctions so as not to lose face by accepting them. But no.

Nicholas Burns, the U.S. undersecretary of state for political affairs had to say the sanctions are "meant to be punitive". The goddamn sum bitch.

That's sending the wrong message to the world. It says the US is in charge and FUCK YOU!
.Major U.N. Security Council powers have agreed on an incremental increase in sanctions on Iran, including a new restriction on exporters doing business with the country, diplomats said Thursday.

A draft resolution also calls for more monitoring of Iran's military and financial institutions, broader travel bans on Iranian nuclear scientists and other key officials, and freezing the assets of people and banks linked to weapons proliferation, Security Council diplomats told The Associated Press.

Diplomats from the five nations with veto power on the council - the U.S., Russia, China, Britain and France - spent a third day negotiating a final agreement on principles that would form the basis for a third round of U.N. sanctions on Iran. They were joined by Germany, which has long been involved in efforts to resolve the Iran nuclear dispute.

The general terms were hammered out in Berlin earlier this week, chiefly through negotiations between U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Those elements have been closely held, though they have begun circulating among the rest of the 15-member council.

Russia and China, which have strong business ties with Iran, resisted earlier British and French draft principles pushing for harsher sanctions if Iran keeps refusing to stop enriching uranium - a process that can provide fuel for a nuclear reactor or fissile material for a bomb.

Iran says its nuclear program seeks only to generate electricity.

The Bush administration continues to press the case that Iran tests ballistic missiles, enriches uranium toward building an atomic bomb, hides information and remains in violation of two previous U.N. Security Council resolutions.

On Wednesday, Russia said the new resolution would not impose harsh sanctions against Iran.

But Nicholas Burns, the U.S. undersecretary of state for political affairs, rejected that claim Thursday, saying the resolution was "meant to be punitive."

I really thought that dog had fallen asleep for now, but was so wrong. Bush still wants to attack, if not nuke, Iran.

I've suggested before Bush should just turn the whole Mid-East into glass. Then go in with a fucking glass cutter and extract the oil. Its what he's been after all along anyway.

And he can admire the pretty colors of the glass. Oh. Wow! So pretty.


Pass the Johnnie Walker® Blue Label™ now please. I think the colors will get even better. Even Laura is starting to look good. Such bright colors. The fucking dogs, not so much.
