There is a VERY dangerous chess match afoot.
When pressed, one week ago by reporters regarding the situation between Israel and Iran, white house tough question dodger, Jay Carney said we must allow the, “most stringent sanctions ever imposed on any country time to work.”
He went on to say that there was still a “window of opportunity to persuade Iran … to forgo its nuclear weapons ambitions.”
Really? Allow the “most stringent sanctions ever imposed on any country time to work,” for WHO exactly?
In the LONG run, or short, when have sanctions EVER worked?
And exactly WHO’S window of opportunity are we talking about???
I’ve got some breaking news for ya Carney…Israel doesn’t have time for sanctions to work because, sanctions always work for the timeline of those they are levied against.
Iran will not be brought to their collective knees by sanctions of any kind but they WILL use the “time” provided by “diplomatic efforts” to stretch THEIR window of opportunity to produce nuclear weapons.
Sanctions are nothing but a wagging of a finger by the United Nations and regardless of how vigorously it is wagged, the offending nation always flips their own finger at the free world in response.
