Iran is side-stepping the economic sanctions that the United States led the effort in placing on the world's largest sponsor of terrorism by doing business with countries that don't care about the sanctions. Republicans in Congress helped pass a resolution identifying the Iranian terrorist organization, the Revolutionary Guard, a terrorist organization, and the Democrats now say it was too harsh and provoking of us to do so. This from the same people who said we needed stronger sanctions and diplomatic overtures in the first place.
You see, when Democrats have an idea that is actually given a try (i.e. stronger sanctions by President Bush instead of using military force to stop Iran's nuclear program), but that does not work, their answer is never that the idea was either bad or needs force behind it, but simply that it would have worked if a Democrat had been in charge. Magically and miraculously Ahmadinejad and the ayatollahs would have laid down their arms and animosity if John Kerry had been in office because he would have asked nicer.
Iran is a real threat, and is a trading partner with the two countries in loudest opposition to even stronger economic sanctions: China and Russia. When do we stop worrying about what the "world" thinks, and start acting in our own interest to stop these madmen in Iran?
