US Tightens Sanctions Against Iran: Today's Cartoon

Now, I'm not saying that the Bush Administration is "lying" when it claims that Iran is building a nuclear weapon; but after leading its country into Iraq under suspiciously similar circumstances, trying to convince the world of yet another unsubstantiated threat that only they can see (and prevent) may be about as difficult as Dick Cheney trying to turn a "Q" into an "N".

The thing is, if the United States was serious about deterring Iran from producing a bomb, I really don't think that they would be trying to isolate it through sanctions and in effect turn it into the North Korea of the Middle East, where the threat of nuclear annihilation becomes its sole bargaining lever.

The way I see it, if Iran wasn't interested in manufacturing nuclear weapons before the United States decided to tighten its sanctions against them, this economic white glove across the face may be the motivation they need... and the justification that Bush Administration is looking for.
