Obama Administration Tightens Sanctions On Iran

The Administration of President Barack Obama announced earlier in the week that the United States will team with Britain and Canada in enacting tough economic sanctions in an effort to pressure Tehran to halt its suspected nuclear weapons program.

The coordinated actions represent the first direct response to the U.N. nuclear agency’s recent report suggesting Iran is working toward the development of atomic weapons, according to The Associated Press.

The U.N. report sparked increased international discussion over how to halt the Iranian threat, with Obama pressing the leaders of Russia and China a little more than a week ago to join the United States and its partners in taking action.

The Iranian nuclear program has been a hot topic in headlines of late and a key talking point among the GOP Presidential primary candidates, many of whom view Obama’s Iranian foreign policy as a failure. At a Nov. 12 debate, many of the candidates called for a military strike against Iran as a means by which to resolve the issue.

Obama has taken an approach to the country that reflects former President George W. Bush’s Iranian foreign policy. Obama believes a military strike will only postpone Iran’s ability to acquire nuclear weapons and is not worth the risk to the United States or its allies at this time.
