Following declarations yesterday that the Obama Administration had decided the end of the year was a new “deadline” for Iran to comply with its assorted and not altogether clear demands, the nation is pushing for more sanctions.
And wasting no time, administration officials are said to be looking to the January 1 change in UN Security Council membership as the date to introduce new sanctions against Iran.
Russia and China, the two permanent members of the Security Council most often in opposition to the assorted anti-Iran sanctions pushed by the West, are said to be warming to the latest push.
Exactly what the terms of the sanctions will be remains to be sorted out, but given the massive sanctions already in place the options are relatively limited. Still, the sanctions will likely push Iran further from dialogue over its nuclear program.

The Zionist Neocons and Israel want war with Iran – LIES will be told; propaganda will be more LIES – anything to convince the American people that war with Iran is necessary. Endless war will eventually bankrupt America. Nikitan Krushchev predicted: "We don't have to worry about the United States. They will spend themselves out of existence."
Could it be that the Real deadline is the delivery/installation/activation of the Russian defence air-to-ground missiles S-300 sold to Iran ? It's the same as the one that protects Moscow … and it shoots down drones , cruise missiles and stealth bombers , but not balistic missiles ( hence potential US involvment ) .
The CIA/Mossad intel is watching closely the stages of bringing the S-300 on-line in Iran , it;s crutial to be accurate not only to kill two targets in the same raid ( the yet unfunctional S-300s and the original nuclear related sites ) but also to be cocky and strike on Purim day , February 28 , 2010 .
It's a good time to remember that Iran and Sirya have a mutual military support agreement just as US and Israel have .
I wonder if Iran would respond hitting TelAviv with dirty-bombs tipped Shabab missiles and if so will Israel respond with nukes against both Teheran and Sirya's Damascus . Would the oil and related installation would be rendered radioactive giving Unocal Co. an edge ? Keep in mind , the shia Saudi Arabs , Iraq and UAE hate the sunni Iranians .
