Senate Must Follow House Vote to Sanction Iran

On Dec.15, 2009, the House of Representatives voted 412-12 in favor of enacting tough economic sanctions on Iran, in response to its leaders' defiant insistence on building nuclear weapons. The Senate must do likewise. These sanctions are necessary to show Iran that we are serious. So far, the Iranian regime has openly mocked efforts by the international community to restrain their maniacal quest for nuclear weapons, and have even redoubled their efforts.
