Obama to drop dropped sanctions against Iran!

President Hussein Obama, who has been reopening relations with countries who have long been shunned by the United States like Jimmy Carter on speed, is about to take down the biggest barrier of all. According to a report in Geostrategy Direct, Carter Obama has removed US sanctions against Iran.

Geostrategy Direct is subscription only, but Midwest Jim has the full report here. It's based on an address given by outgoing Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak at the Herzliya conference last week:
The United States has abandoned its policy of sanctioning companies that aid Iran's nuclear and missile program, they said.

The officials said the new Obama administration of has decided to end sanctions against Iranian government agencies or companies that aid Teheran's missile and nuclear program. The officials said Israel has been informed of the new U.S. policy.

"We were told that sanctions do not help the new U.S. policy of dialogue with Iran," an official said.

[Israeli Defense Minister Ehud] Barak confirmed the new U.S. policy. In an address to the Herzliya Conference on Feb. 3, Barak said Washington did not say whether it would resume sanctions against Iran.

"We must arrive at a strategic understanding with the United States over Iran's military nuclear program and ensure that even if at this time they opt for the diplomatic option, it will only last a short time before harsh and necessary sanctions are imposed," Barak said.

Obama decided to end sanctions against Iran after determining that the U.S. measures had failed to block Teheran's missile or nuclear weapons program, officials said. Under the administration of former President George Bush, the United States accelerated sanctions on Iran in 2008.

In his address, the Israeli defense minister indicated that Obama had forged an entirely new approach toward Iran. He said the Israeli government has sought a briefing from the new U.S. administration.

A U.S. defense source said the White House would no longer enforce sanctions imposed by the Bush administration. The source said the decision has already been relayed to Iran.

"The administration has abandoned sanctions entirely," the U.S. source said. "It is a completely new ballgame."

Actually makes sense...

BHO senses that Iran will have to be hit by Israel in the next 6-8 months. He is providing cover for his administration by cutting ties to the polies of the USA for the past 30 years.

BHO hopes to be able to stand at the Whitehouse, as innocent as a lamb, as Iran burns, and scold Israel for such aggressive and hostile actions. He will LEAD sanctions against Israel (remember Bush 1 & James Baker after the Iraq bombings?)

Yep it's BHO plan to get others to do the heavy lifting for him..

He is blameless for everything...

This is an indicator that war with Iran & Syria is very close...

I sense "Occupation" may be correct.

I have an uneasy feeling that "The One" is going to make it so bad that we are going to look back on Carter's administration with longing for the "good old days".

This guy is a disaster.

It’s fairly simple. Obama is just helping his own brothers. That’s all.

Israel can twist in the wind.

Hopenchange's attitude to Iran means only one thing:

Israel will have to defend itself. And that's a blessing in disguise.

Israel needs to start working with other countries. Apart from stopping American "aid" - there are other countries, that with the correct business/trade incentives coupled with shared goals can be real allies - India comes to mind, and Israel can create a real relationship with China, that I think might be more of a moderating influence on China than any sanctions from the West.

Even as I had despair over Obama, this really takes the cake. I am sick over it.

I am just speechless. Obama has no shame and I am going to wretch right now.

I believe Obama would do this but I would like a little verification.

Barak did not say these things during his address at the conference.
