Obama About to Drop Sanctions On Iran?

There is word that under Obama, companies that do business with Iran that help their missile or nuclear programs will no longer face sanctions. The reasoning is that the sanctions are hindering the talks and to not seem to be having much of an impact on the programs.

If they are not working there are still reasons to keep them. Just because the sanctions are not hindering the programs does not mean that you should lift them resulting in a possible boost to the programs. It is also among the strongest an clearest messages a country can send that does not involve military action.

The goal still seems to be preventing Iran from going nuclear, the difference here being a tactical change. With the tactical change, success or failure now lay squarely with Obama.

  1. Obama’s stealing the census from Congress has suddenly awakened and enraged the Republicans. Maybe this will arouse them as well to challenge Obama for stealing the Presidency itself. They surely know he is not an Article 2 “natural born citizen” (which is more than merely being a 14th Amendment “citizen”) by virtue of either Obama’s birth to a dad of Kenyan/British citizenship or birth in Kenya itself — as manifested by his unwillingness to supply his long form birth certificate now under seal.
