On this day August 30, 1996

On this day The United States presents evidence to the U.N. Sanctions Committee that Iran is complicit in the smuggling of petroleum products from Iraq through the Persian Gulf. According to U.S. allegations, Iran uses barges and small ships to carry oil products from southern Iraq into Iranian territorial waters. Shipping documents then are forged to show that the cargo is of Iranian origin.

It is no secret on how I feel about the United Nations. I feel like we invest way to much money and Soldiers for this organization, compared to the other countries. We get very little support and spend billions of dollars. This is another example of an agency that has gotten too big and feel like they are in charge of our military.
