Change You Can Believe In

Change the "q" in "Iraq" to an "n"...

The Senate passed an Iran sanctions bill on a voice vote tonight that would restrict Iran's import of refined petroleum products. A similar bill has already passed the House.


Other measues in the bill (S.2799) would "impose a broad ban on direct imports from Iran to the United States and exports from the United States to Iran, exempting food and medicines, require the Obama administration to freeze the assets of Iranians, including Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, who are active in weapons proliferation or terrorism, allow state and local governments and private asset fund managers to easily divest from energy firms doing business with Iran, and strengthen export controls to stop the illegal black market export of sensitive technology to Iran through other countries and impose tough new licensing requirements on those who refuse to cooperate," Reuters reports.


....but hey, do what you will anyway.
