Obama Warned Us – Real Sanctions

Posted on January 22, 2014 2:00 pm

In dealing with those nations that break rules and laws, I believe that we must develop alternatives to violence that are tough enough to actually change behavior — for if we want a lasting peace, then the words of the international community must mean something. Those regimes that break the rules must be held accountable. Sanctions must exact a real price. Intransigence must be met with increased pressure — and such pressure exists only when the world stands together as one.

BARACK OBAMA, Nobel Lecture, Dec. 10, 2009

“Or – better idea – we just let Iran do whatever it wants. It’s SO much easier.”

    Harvey, the post above this one (“Good News, California!”) produces a 404 on the Comment link.

    @2 – That’s because I posted it in error. I was scheduling it for tomorrow and forgot to change the date.

    Thanks for the heads up (I appreciate you for keeping an eye on the site like that), but this time it’s not actually a problem.

    I’ll have to wait ’til tomorrow for a pithy comment… if I can remember it. :-)

    @5 – And pro wrestling is fake.

    And there’s no such thing as Santa.

    The Easter Bunny’s real, though, so at least there’s that.
