Typical poor reporting conducted by David Sanger, and The New York Times. As Hugh Sansom said, there was no fire fight between the passengers on the flotilla, and Israeli commanders on the ship that the Israeli's conducted an act of piracy. The only killing was done by the Israeli's, even though the passsenger were able to disarm some Israeli's and take their guns.

Mr. Sanger mentioned the missles being placed in countries to protect from so-called Iranian aggression. I wish people like Mr. Sanger would answer one question....When was the last time that Iran attacked one of it's neighbors....when Mr. Sanger???

The US can no longer dictate a response from the international community. Each nation has it’s own national interests. A UN resolution? But Iranian oil is needed in the global market. Hello.

David Sanger displays his standard problems with fact and truth with his comments on the flotilla.

There was no fire fight -- that is a flat lie. Not even the Israeli war criminals are claiming that the flotilla activists fired at them with anything.

Absurd -- and perfectly consistent with the miserable excuse for reporting by the Times.

I second the first comment, could this seeming inexplicable disconnect be rationalized by your guest and what if Iran chooses to abandon the treaty.
Also, could the guest comment on how the current situation with Turkey, Israel , the flotillas, the blockade and global opinion affect these new rounds of sanctions since the United States and Israel (both with waning credibility) are the main supporters of sanctions against Iran.

Iran is being punished for not living up to the nuclear non proliferation treaty. Strangely, Israel and Pakistan aren't signatories, and the US has no problem with that.

Pakistan is one state that actually proliferates, and has a record of proliferation, why aren't they being sanctioned?
