Oh wow, the United Nations has slapped some sanctions on Iran to "stop" them from continuing their work towards nuclear weapons. If Iran follows any precedent at all, these sanctions will stop them from doing nothing. Iran cares nothing for the effects of sanctions on its people, so imposing sanctions will do nothing to sway the government and will only hurt the people of Iran, not the leadership. If the United Nations could actually back up what it says to countries and have some way of making rogue states fall in line, maybe they would actually be worthwhile. Personally, I'm not as frightened of a guard dog with no teeth.
