Beware of Dog - It Barks

I hate to say "I told you so" but, "I told you so!" Just like I said in this previous blog, Obama did not impose any sanctions against Iceland. This should come as no surprise to anyone who understands US policy on these matters. Sanctions are far too strong a diplomatic tool in an issue so benign as whaling in Iceland, simply because Iceland hunts whales responsibly and, more importantly, legally. Any action by the US against Iceland would ultimately be referred to the WTO and the US does not want a legal ruling on the issue of its sanctions or the legality of Icelandic whaling. So Icelanders can relax and continue to hunt whales- the big US diplomatic dog may bark but it will never bite.

1 Smámynd: Heimir Tómasson

Indeed. Any outbursts from the US - or any governing body for that matter - is simply to reinforce the "green" vote. Count on it.
