    Obama, Chinese leader agree to look at possible new sanctions on Iran - The Oval: Tracking the Obama presidency

    Slowly, diplomacy is starting to make progress. Russia is on line with new arms treaty and will now consider supporting sanctions.

    President Obama and Chinese counterpart Hu Jintao agreed today to have their respective diplomats work together on possible new sanctions for Iran over its nuclear program, officials said.

    The Chinese are "prepared to work with us," said White House national security aide Jeff Bader, briefing reporters after Obama and Hu met on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit.

    Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, meanwhile, has said sanctions will not affect his country's decisions regarding its nuclear program. He also condemned the Nuclear Security Summit that Obama is hosting.

    Don't hold your breath. Russia has tens of millions of Muslims and has never had a problem with Iran. If Russia starts "fishing", they may not like what they catch.

    What a joke...since when is capitulating to Russian demands and giving up a major deterrent to foes bent on conducting CBR warfare on the good ol' USA "progress"? Maybe if you are a terrorist, Russian or Iranian it's progress...is that the case?

    The boat sailed on 'sactions.'

    They never work anyway.

    Either get used to Iran having nukes or take them out with a military strike.

    Those are the options.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha....yeah.....we will see nothing.

    Russia is currently BUILDING the very nuclear reactors that will be used to make the weapons grade fissile material they will use for their bombs plus supplied them with the air defense systems to protect the facilities....and the fricken Chinese have supplied them with the centrifuge technology and technical support!!!!!

    Great fucking plan Obama!!!!!!!

    Let's see

    I am not really worried about Iran or North Korea, I more worried about the trigger happy terrorist. If a nuclear weapon is used in the near future, it won't be by the order of a countries leader per se. IMO
