The impeccable logic of imperialism

Barack Obama, criticizing Iran:
"But what's clear is, is that they have not said yes to an agreement that Russia, China, Germany, France, Great Britain and the United States all said was a good deal."
To Obama, the idea that the Iranian government should make decisions based not on its own interests, but on the interests of other countries, most of which are at this very moment engaged in carrying out economic warfare (in the form of sanctions) against Iran, doesn't even strike him as strange. Which itself is strange, considering the weight the U.S. gives to the opinion of other countries when deciding on its actions. You know, like the majority of the U.N. Security Council who didn't agree that Iraq should be invaded. Or the 187 countries who voted in the U.N. this year that the U.S. should end its blockade of Cuba.
