Iran, Iraq, What’s the Difference?

The Associated Press is running an article today entitled “UN powers back new sanctions against Iraq.” Of course that is a typo, because the big story today is that the US is claiming support from the P5+1 for new sanctions against Iran.

A typo, but there is a shred of truth in it, as the UN Security Council is still refusing to lift the 1990 sanctions against Iraq for “pursuing weapons of mass destruction.” To this day certain important pesticides can’t be imported to Iraq on the assumption that they are “dual use” and could be used in chemical or biological weaponry.
