United Nations Security Council Places New Sanctions on Iran

A victory for the Obama administration: As expected, the United Nations Security Council just voted to place new economic sanctions on Iran. Months of doubt about China’s stance were answered by the Chinese “yes” vote for the package — not just an abstention — along with affirmative votes from the other permanent members of the council. Opposing the measure were Brazil and Turkey, with Lebanon abstaining. Secretary Clinton indeed had her whip count right.

This will not be the last effort at sanctioning Iran. U.S. and European officials have talked for months about pivoting off a successful Security Council vote to cobble together a coalition of major Iranian trading partners to tighten the economic screws on the Iranian leadership. Those include the United Arab Emirates, South Korea, Japan, the European Union, China and Russia. But expect conservative voices to continue a push for a total oil embargo on Iran, as a congressional measure to impose additional gas sanctions was deferred for the vote.

What size?
A man walked into a dress shop and told the clerk he wanted to buy a surprise formal evening gown (progressive die stamping)for his wife.
“What size?” asked the clerk.
The man shrugged blankly.
Trying to help, the clerk inquired, “Well then pouch belt, what are your wife's measurements?”
The man thought for a moment. “Small, medium, and large and in that order.”
