Security Council Approves Iran Sanctions

Now I guess we'll see if Iran will make good on their threats against being sanctioned. I'm guessing they won't. The dog probably has no bite, but damned if it won't quit barking.

The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously Saturday to impose sanctions on Iran for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment, increasing international pressure on the government to prove that it is not trying to make nuclear weapons. Iran immediately rejected the resolution.

I really don't see what Iran has against sanctions. Look at North Korea. I rest my case.

If Iran refuses to comply, the council warned it would adopt further nonmilitary sanctions, but the resolution emphasized the importance of diplomacy in seeking guarantees "that Iran's nuclear program is exclusively for peaceful purposes."

Here take this million dollars as long as you promise not to spend it.
