Latest U.N. sanctions won't deter Iran

The Virginian-Pilot - HamptonRoads.com/PilotOnline.com: "Four months after the deadline passed, a unanimous United Nations Security Council has finally imposed sanctions against Iran for its continuing efforts to build nuclear weapons. The punishment won't matter one bit.

That's by design. Our problem solving Iran's nuclear threat is that our problem isn't Iran. The problem is too many countries with short-term economic interests look the other way. Both China and Russia sit on the Security Council and wield vetoes. Russia wants to be able to sell nuclear reactors to Iran, and China wants access to oil. Both used their positions to water down the sanctions into irrelevance."
