Bag of tricks

US marches toward sanctions on Iran

The US can proceed toward UN sanctions only by ignoring the positive developments in Iran-IAEA cooperation over the past two years, thus turning the clock back. Hasn't the IAEA been successful in getting Iran to sign the Additional Protocol,
allowing extensive inspection of its nuclear sites, present comprehensive reports on its nuclear program, and go along with
its request for temporary suspension of its uranium enrichment activities, all these in the past two years, warranting the IAEA's rather warm reference to Iran's "constructive cooperation" in their
latest resolutions on Iran? Why then is the US turning a blind eye to the IAEA's significant breakthroughs with Iran, if not for the sinister objective of eventual war-mongering?

Well, I'm fresh out of ideas.
