India Won't Join EU Sanctions on Iran

India has announced, despite the European Union and United States increasing sanctions on the Iranian regime, that they will continue, along with China, to import oil from the belligerent Persians, who have threatened to shut down the Straits of Hormuz, and are moving towards obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Their reasons are supposedly based on economics, but Europe's going to take a massive hit for uniting with America on this very important issue, so do they prefer cheap oil to a nuclear armed Iran gunning for war with Israel? Apparently so, and they didn't support the Western world when we went to war in Libya, either.

I don't understand the Indians on this. Are they trying to remain neutral with potentially the greatest threat to mankind right now for the continuing sale of cheap oil? I hope not, considering they might secure a seat on the U.N. Security Council one day and could use that position to veto action against Iran someday to benefit their own needs.

What say you?

  1. Maybe for financial reasons, maybe political. One thing's for sure: if Iran can keep funding their nuclear program then it's likely that India will find themselves the victims of a terrorist attack, using 100% enriched uranium as part of the weapon.

    I hope they can see that.
