Watered Down Iran Sanctions

The sanctions against Iran have been watered down to satisfy Russia and China.

The U.S. has backed away from pursuing a number of tough measures against Iran in order to win support from Russia and China for a new United Nations Security Council resolution on sanctions, according to people familiar with the matter.

Among provisions removed from the original draft resolution the U.S. sent to key allies last month were sanctions aimed at choking off Tehran's access to international banking services and capital markets, and closing international airspace and waters to Iran's national air cargo and shipping lines, according to the people.

If we learned anything from the Bush administration it's that going to the UN and kow towing to Russia and China doesn't work. These sorts of sanctions were seeked and received throughout the Bush administration and we got nowhere.
