Obama wird nichts weiter unternehmen …

Despite issuing harsh calls for Tehran to be held to account, the Obama administration does not plan to shift its policy of pressure on the Iranian government after disrupting what officials said was a plot to assassinate a Saudi Arabian envoy in Washington, administration officials said on Wednesday. (…)

While the United States has mounted an intense diplomatic effort with its allies and other countries to condemn Iran, it has limited its punitive measures to imposing sanctions on an Iranian airline and five senior officials of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps who are accused of having links to the men accused in the plot.

More dramatic responses — like military action or a blockade of Iran’s oil industry — are unlikely because of resistance from Russia and China, concerns about destabilizing a region already convulsed by turmoil, and fears of driving up oil prices and rattling the global economy.
