Iran Sanctions – A Deliminator…

No – you got the title correct. deliminator: “A string or pattern used to delimit text into fields, but which is itself eliminated from the resulting list of fields.”

That is how I look at these new sanctions against Iran and with these sanctions are so many promises not to do this and not to do that. But these promises are not really that visible because backroom, under-table and slight of hand techniques were used to get the job done. Nothing is as it seems and everything is what it seems…

{The Obama administration fears tough U.S. sanctions against companies doing business in Iran would anger foreign allies.} (Read More Here)

I will let the article above stand for what is happening in America. I can tell you what is happening in Russia first hand though…

Russia has three or four articles on every subject to do with the Iran sanctions. One minute they can sell defense missiles to Iran, the next minute they can not, the next minute Medvedev has to decide and then the next minute we start all over again. This has been a pattern on all subjects associated with the sanctions, since the sanctions were voted on and that seems to be a quandary that will extend for a while… (Guilty feelings anyone?)

I see by the news from China that the same issues are happening and one minute this is the way it is and the next minute it has changed. China also is “Gung-Ho” on staying buddies with Iran. (Guilty feelings anyone?)

Also to top this all off – Europe is wanting to run ahead faster and increase the sanctions on a sorta a personal level associated with Europe only… (Read Here)

So here is what I see: America is fretting over what they have done will piss off the other half of the world that is not already pissed at them. Russia is running around like a chicken with its head cut off and has no idea what the bottom line is. China keeps saying, We are Iran’s Friends and buddy. The the “icing on the cake” is Europe who wants to beat the war drums and impose their own sanctions to the evil Iran. (Which Russia has made clear – You better not do that and bother us…)

Then there is Iran’s words of wisdom: “These (U.N.) resolutions have no value…it is like a used handkerchief that should be thrown in the waste bin. Sanctions are falling on us from the left and the right. For us they are the same as pesky flies.”……

You gotta admit Ahmadinejad has a way with words…

Windows to Russia!

PS: My Grandma use to say, “Do not do anything that you have to worry about after you do it, because it means it was not right in the first place!” Hummmm… (Seems to be a whole lot of worrying going on…)
