7. "The US has also expressed concern ... " WTF?
The US has also expressed concern, saying the move raised "serious questions about the use of energy to exert political pressure".

Somehow the "coalition's" 12-year embargo of Iraq, which may have caused 2 million deaths, was an "OK" use of political and economic pressure. Any other states' use of political and/or economic pressure is a big NO-NO. For some reason, the hypocrisy brings bile to my throat. Not unlike the "we don't torture, but we don't need laws against torture" mindset.
