    Russia is not likely to agree to sanctions on Iran without China. China is not going to agree to anything that may cause a threat to its national security or economy. China has approximately 20% of the worlds population. America accounts for approximately 5% of the world's population, and consumes 25% of the world's energy. Iran, and China (peacefully you may notice) have giant gas and oil trade agreements in place. Any interruption to such trade agreements would be detrimental to China's economy... don't forget, America is in big debt to China. You really must look at the bigger picture, Julianna. Before you suggest "huge sticks" and "incredible force," you might just stop and realize, Israel's intransigence is what needs to be brought into line before all else, as far as M.E. peace is concerned. BTW, it wouldn't be a good idea to stir up the hungry dragon. Cheers.
