Obama: US Will “Consult” China, Russia On Iran


iran-shipsChina and Russia share the United States’ objective of ensuring Iran does not make weapons via its nuclear program and Washington will consult with them on how to achieve that, President Barack Obama said on Sunday.

“We will be consulting with them carefully over the next several weeks to look at what other options we have available to us,” Obama said at a press conference after the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit where he met with the leaders of China and Russia.

Obama said his strong preference was to resolve the Iran issue diplomatically but he was “not taking any options off the table.”

On Friday, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said its business ties with Iran should not be targeted by any new sanctions, repeating that in any case sanctions were not the solution to the nuclear issue.

This is literally a matter of life and death for the numbskulls who elected him and their fellow citizens. and he’s going to consult?!
