Obama to drop sanctions on Iran

Geostrategy Direct

DOSSIER: Ehud Barak
'Change' the mullahs can believe in: Obama to drop sanctions on Iran


Israelis may have gone to the polls hoping for "Change" but the status quo is all any of the candidates could look forward to whatever the outcome. Defense Minister Ehud Barack, has already glimpsed the future and has warned about what it holds.

Meanwhile, the status quo means continued rocket and missile attacks while international aid pours into the Gaza Strip and bolsters a regime run by Hamas, which is still considered by the United States to be a terrorist organization.

But "Change" is taking place, Barak has intimated, originating not in the Mideast but in Washington, D.C. in the form of a U.S. reconciliation with Iran.

Such a process could result in U.S. acceptance of Teheran's nuclear weapons program and the downplaying of its threats against Israel.

Just as Barack Obama entered office facing a massive economic crisis beyond the scope of his experience, likewise the new Israeli leader will have to make or delay making difficult strategic decisions from the minute he or she enters office.

Barak has already signaled what the new government can expect, officials here said.

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.
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."

Similarly, Obama has decided on a new U.S. ambassador to Syria and is expected to lift sanctions against a nation charged with aiding Al Qaida in Iraq and secretly building a nuclear reactor with North Korean assistance.
Diplomatic sources said Obama, in consultation with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has asked Frederic Hof to become the first U.S. ambassador to Damascus since 2005. The sources said Hof, a member of the National Advisory Committee of the Middle East Policy Council, agreed to take the post.

The sources said the Obama administration was expected to suspend U.S. sanctions on Syria's military and energy programs.

They said Hof would be authorized to facilitate an expansion of U.S. relations with Syria, which deteriorated under President George Bush.

In 2005, the United States withdrew its ambassador to Damascus in wake of the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Syria was blamed for the car bombing in Beirut in which Hariri and many of his bodyguards were killed.

The sources said Obama sent emissaries to Syria in September 2008 and pledged that if elected he would reconcile with the regime of President Bashar Assad. After his election victory, they said, Obama sent another message that promised to appoint an ambassador within the first weeks of his administration.

Specialist: Iran has already achieved nuclear weapons capability


A Russian nuclear proliferation expert contradicted a U.S. National Intelligence Estimate, telling a conference here that Iran has developed the capability to produce and fire nuclear weapons. “Iran already has nuclear capabilities,” [Ret.] Gen. Vladimir Dvorkin Dvorkin said on Feb. 4 in a speech to the the annual Herzliya Conference.

He also said that said Iran has engineered its latest missiles, enabling them to contain a nuclear warhead. In a sharp departure from the U.S. NIE in late 2007, the Russian analyst said Teheran acquired most of the components needed for a nuclear bomb as early as 2003.

The White House


Diplomacy: Barack Obama supports tough and direct diplomacy with Iran without preconditions. Now is the time to use the power of American diplomacy to pressure Iran to stop their illicit nuclear program, support for terrorism, and threats toward Israel. Obama and Biden will offer the Iranian regime a choice. If Iran abandons its nuclear program and support for terrorism, we will offer incentives like membership in the World Trade Organization, economic investments, and a move toward normal diplomatic relations. If Iran continues its troubling behavior, we will step up our economic pressure and political isolation. In carrying out this diplomacy, we will coordinate closely with our allies and proceed with careful preparation. Seeking this kind of comprehensive settlement with Iran is our best way to make progress.

And this apparently, this is part of the new “diplomacy".........................

U.S. may moderate shield plan if Russia helps on Iran



The United States will review "the pace of development" of its missile defense shield in Europe if Russia agrees to help stop Iran from building a nuclear bomb, a senior U.S. official said on Friday.

The official was speaking as U.S. Undersecretary of State William Burns was in Moscow to push ahead with Washington's vow to hit the "reset button" on U.S.-Russian relations and halt a drift in relations.

"If we are able to work together to dissuade Iran from pursuing a nuclear weapons capability, we would be able to moderate the pace of development of missile defenses in Europe," a senior U.S. administration official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
"The impetus for the deployment of the missile defense systems is the threat from Iran. If it is possible to address that then that needs to be taken into consideration as you look at the deployment of the system," the official said.


Wild Thing's comment.........

I expected this from Obama but not so soon. Every Leftist crackpot idea is being rammed through asap by him. Everything Obama does seems deliberate to destroy us

"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."

And sorry Czech Republic, we know you risked ticking off Russia in the assumption we would protect you by agreeing to let us put up a shield, but there’s a new sheriff in town and he could care less.

Russia is already helping a nuclear reactor which we know will produce fissle material for their nuclear weapons program.

Instead, we should be asking Russia to STOP helping Iran if they want us to withdraw the ABM project from Poland and Czechosolvakia. In other words, we are prepared to leave the Czech Republic hanging in the wind, show the World that we don’t keep our commitments, that were are cowards, back down to Russia and further degrade our own security.

Our country is run by morons of the worst kind.

Someone get to Obama's birth certificate and get this Kenyan out of office. We have terrorists, communists and Democrats conspiring together to tear down this country from the inside and out.

Barack Hussein Obama is all about absolute power. He won and now he RULES. In his mind, he is the only power and law in the world. The megalomania has been unleashed. Obama is not defending us from the abyss, he’s
purposely leading us into it.

It’s like he’s daring us to do something.

.....Thank you Tim for sending this to me.

Anyone else hear the ticking of bombs getting louder and louder?

Does America mean anything to him? It's the country who gave his ass the chance to succeed and become something better than himself or is his head so big he can't see America through the trees? Is he really that stupid? All common sense says "DO NOT LIFT SANCTIONS" on Iran. What they did 30 odd years ago is friggin' UNFORGIVABLE! They deserve to live in the stone age for the rest of their days! I will never forgive or forget the Iranian Hostage Crisis! (Thank you very much Jimmy Carter!) and any American who gives in is just an ass!
Iran will develop a nuke and they WILL use it! Mark my words. They hate all America and Israel stand for. We should all be up in arms over this.

Well, there goes the chance that the mullahs might be overturned by internal dissent.

Obama IS a muslim. He is also a communist. He is a racist. He is anti American. And sadly, he is the president and has a Dem Congress. America as we love it is screwed. Our enemies will now be treated as allies, but they will still hate us. Putin must be doing flips. He fooled Bush. Obama will be even easier.

Obama was elected, so we have to assume that the majority of voting Americans are happy with what he is doing. Sad that we are losing our freedoms and America's power to a snake oil salesman selling feel good to a bunch of idiots.

Yankeemom, I sure do.

"Hear the laughter coming from the caves in the Middle east?"

Lynn, excellent question.

"Does America mean anything to him?"

I don't think he has an ounce of love for our country in his bones. He only cares about it in relation to what it can do for him.

Tom, your right, I bet Putin laughs everytime he thinks of our country.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 14, 2009 07:21 PM

Obama has shut down gitmo, open invitation to Hamas to come to the United States and we will pay for the trip, He wants to cut our Missile Defense by 80%, He wants to strip the Military. How long does he think we can hold out once it starts. They will test this puke. He was challanged by Canada and the E.U. about buy American and he backed down, they changed the buy American clause in the Porkulus bill to much more favorable language toward Europe.

Obama won't have the courage to stand up to Iran let alone Putin, obama will crap his pants and run. This is not looking good.

Rick, good point. Pretty bad when it is the President of our country that is doing things to make us feel unsafe.

drstrangeloveb52isok, GO BiBi, yess.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 14, 2009 07:26 PM

Mark, all those things you listed should be front and center on all the newspapers.

I am so glad Cheney spoke up about these things, in that link I posted from you a week ago I think it was. The media did mention it too but of course only so they could attack Cheney but the word still got out which was worth it.
