UN Sanctions Iran, Good Luck
By Micah Halpern

Sunday December 24, 2006

I'm Predicting:

It was unanimous.
All 15 members of the UN Security Council voted to apply sanctions against Iran. And in reality, it will have little impact on Iran's nuclear development.

The key section of Resolution 1737 reads:
"to prevent the supply, sale or transfer ... of all items, materials, equipment, goods and technology which could contribute to Iran's enrichment-related, reprocessing or heavy water-related activities or to the development of nuclear weapon delivery systems."

The key reason that Resolution 1737 will have no real impact:
Russia voted in favor of sanctions against Iran and yet Russia will continue to build the Iranian nuclear plant in Busher.

The Resolution also requires an evaluation in 60 days.
The Resolution also stipulates that peaceful and non-forceful strategies be applied to resolve the situation.
The Resolution reads well in theory, but in practice it is almost impossible to enforce. Good Luck.
