The Obama Administration has decided to ratchet up their sactions against Iran once again, with officials announcing today that 10 additional businesses and five more individuals were blacklisted for ostensible ties with Iran’s nuclear program.
The companies were centered around Iran’s banking and shipping industry, and the US Treasury Department is freezing all assets they have in US jurisdictions. Though the companies were described by officials as “Iranian fronts,” eight were actually Manx companies, and one was Malaysian-based.
The moves come just one week before the P5+1 talks with Iran in Geneva, Switzerland, and will almost certainly be viewed in a negative light by Iranian officials. As the talks are meant to reconcile Iran’s nuclear program with US demands it appears odd timing.
It will likely take a back seat in the question of US hostility to the talks, however, compared to Admiral Michael Mullen’s Sunday comments, suggesting that the US was still considering attacking Iran in the near future. The US has been threatening to attack Iran regularly for years.

And here we go again… The US and the "international community"( a couple of rich western states) will be outraged that the Iranians refused their generous offer of complete capitulation.
Yes, Iran must stop doing what it is not doing at once or else we will make them suffer even more. If they stop doing what they are not doing we will still impose sanctions. If they don't stop doing what they are not doing then of course we must continue imposing sanctions. And then we will bomb them in order to stop them from doing what they are not doing!
3- so if you don’t call all the above a avidity of a naïve social and political system by all parties involved., then you are stupid as those who thinks that US is about to become a socialist country or Iran is a totalitarian regime as north Korea and Saudi Arabia is fair and just Kingdome system as Israel is.
4- For any economic system., they need markets., markets needs working resources such as human and oil to drive the machinery., US and Europe been losing this trend to China., India., and now Iran.., that is why the time for capitalism and liberalism has come to call for the growth of Islam-o fascism., dictatorial Islamic regime and all other imaginable words that they could use.., like they lied about Iraq it is their job to lie now and later. One of their lies is their silence about Saudis Kingdome family and their brutality towards their own and those who works there.
If I were the Iranians I would just sit back at the table, prop my feet up and say, "Go ahead and attack. Seriously just do it and get it over with cause I am sick of watching you masturbate yourself into a frenzy over this shit. If you want to talk, then take the gun out of my face, otherwise, fuck off"
Why does the world allow this warmongering nation to roam around the world threatening and attacking at will? Why can't the world see how dangerous this is, how destabilizing it is, how immoral this is?
The U.S. must be stopped. It is a force for evil, not good. While it exists there will be no peace, only fear and killing and injustice.
Destroy the American War Machine before it destroys the world and takes away our freedom.
