In the aftermath of the Dec. 23 United Nations Security Council unanimous vote 
imposing sanctions or Iran for failing to suspend uranium enrichment (see text 
of resolution here), one has to wonder: why did Russia and China go along with 

Iran's pursuit of uranium enrichment for civilian nuclear purposes is allowed 
by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and the IAEA has found no indication 
that Iran has diverted any nuclear material to military purposes. While Russia 
may prefer for its own reasons that Iran not enrich uranium, it fully 
recognizes that Iran's pursuit is legal under international law. Furthermore, 
as Western news media constantly emphasize, Russia and China have extensive 
commercial ties with Iran, hence it is not in their interest to antagonize 
Iran. Their support of UNSC1737 doesn't seem to make sense.
