In 1st foreign policy move since Obama’s re-election, administration sets new Iran sanctions

Source: Associated Press

The Obama administration has imposed financial sanctions against officials and government bodies in Iran that the U.S. blames for jamming satellite broadcasts and blocking Internet access for ordinary Iranians.

Thursday’s action is the first foreign policy announcement since President Barack Obama won re-election.

Good - shows that Obama is firm in his commitment to nuclear non-proliferation, for which he won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Perhaps Iran would do a complete turn-around if its leaders read the current issue of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists;

2. well technically, the first foreign policy move was yet another drone bombing in Yemen

 

I don't see how financial terrorism and drone bombings are fine and dandy just because it's "the good guy" doing it. There used to be some pretence of opposition to that sort of thing under the disgraceful reign of Bush the Lesser.
