Should a third round of United Nations sanctions be imposed on Iran?

Obviously, the UN sanctions are effective, despite the Iranian president's claims on the contrary. A third round could prove devastating. Since China wanted to help resolve global issues, why wouldn't it support more sanctions? Iran is a country that has broken promises and defied the Security Council in the past, and the international community has no other choice but to impose sanctions. It is myopic to try and stabilize Afghanistan and Iraq while going to war with Iran. If the world negotiates a partial uranium freeze, a nation like Iran will find ways to take advantage of that situation in the future. Why won't they just comply with a full freeze and prove that the nuclear program is peaceful?

    Yes I think the sanctions are slowly working, but the pressure needs to increase.

    When the sanctions affect the average Iranian the government will relent out of fear of a revolt.

    The next sanction should have a serious economic impact on the nation of Iran.

    Such as baning the sale of gasoline. Iran has lots of oil but dose not have the capability to refine it to meet its demands. A ban on importing gasoline will send a very strong very quick answer.

    those country that continue on their nuclear campaign just want to feel protected. because as we all know. the US government loves to interfer with anything. if non of those nation will stand up, the US government will dominate the entire world because they love to push those who are week. and that's the truth. they will conquer every country in the world and dominate them if non of those so called "THREAT TO US NATIONAL SECURITY" stand on their ground.
