US to block Iran sanctions at G8 summit!

I don't have enough time to really comment on this, but it's too astounding not to post.

The United States plans to block the imposition of another round of tougher financial sanctions against Iran at next week's G8 summit.
According to officials, sanctions against Iran are expected to top the G8's agenda. Sources are also predicting a pointed debate between the heads of the industrialized nations over an appropriate response to Iranian authorities' suppression of reformist demonstrations in Iran led by Mir Hossein Mousavi and other Iranian opposition leaders.

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi hinted in a newspaper interview earlier in the week that the G8 is due to decide on new financial sanctions against the Islamic Republic. Berlusconi disclosed that he had spoken with the heads of the G8 nations and has discussed such steps with them.


However, diplomatic sources in New York reported that American officials are working behind the scenes to prevent new sanctions from being imposed against Iran.

U.S. officials claimed that a tough stance toward Iran could backfire, bringing about an opposite outcome to that desired by those who support such measures.

The Obama administration, according to the diplomatic sources, has discarded the notion of direct talks with Iran. However, the United States is still interested in re-engaging Iran through the renewed discussion of its nuclear program through the six permanent United Nations Security Council members.

American officials expressed concern that a decision to enact harsh steps against Iran during the G8 meeting could badly hurt the prospect of Tehran agreeing to renew negotiations with the permanent Security Council members.

In addition to U.S. reluctance to enact fresh sanctions, G8 members Russia and China have been known to oppose any punitive steps against Tehran.

Am I the only one wondering which side Obama is on? What a moron!

May your soul rest in peace, you all guardians of Iran. Innocent lives and bloods of this land martyred by EVIL AND SATAN regim of this world. IRAN and iranians will never forget you and the will not rest till they finish what you paid for with
your blood.


The Iranian police have issued two thirds of people arrested during the demonstrations of protest followed the presidential elections. This is confirmed by the chief of police, Esmail Ahmadi-Moghaddam, quoted today by the agency Irna. The people arrested were under the 1032 authority, while the International Federation for Human Rights would be more than 2 thousand, including hundreds of "disappeared".
