(Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama said on Tuesday he wanted tougher U.N. sanctions in weeks against Iran over its nuclear program, and the world's leading industrial nations expressed optimism that China will agree on possible next steps.
Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy presented a united front on Iran at a joint White House news conference, saying they felt it was time to move ahead with tougher sanctions that their governments have been negotiating with China, Russia, Germany and Britain.
"My hope is that we are going to get this done this spring," Obama said. "I'm interested in seeing that regime in place in weeks."

Imposing sanctions on Iran? Get real. Obama is just the loyal frontman for the globalist elite, maneuvering the Middle East step by step into WWIII.
I want TeaParty Sanctions on OBAMA in seconds.
In weeks it will be too late.
but it’s not about him
So more than a year into his term and he’s finally talking about adding sanctions sometime this ‘spring’?
Its a good thing millions of lives aren’t at stake.
Is Israel ready to attack Iran? Is this why Obama will reportedly open up offshore USA waters for oil exploration?
But he wants Jews to stop building homes in Jerusalem yesterday.
Sanctions? Oh no, not sanctions. Please no, anything but sanctions.
She writes: Shockingly, as we learned last week, these biting sanctions will no longer include actions that could actually change Irans behavior, including limiting Irans access to international capital markets and banking services or closing air space and waters to Irans national air and shipping lines. So the issue is not when the so-called sanctions will come (President Obama promised them in weeks today) but whether they will even nibble.
There has been some pressure on him to at least look as though he opposes Iran, since he has routinely blocked sanctions practically since he took office. So I think saying “this spring” is merely buying himself time to come up with another excuse.
Israel, pop those sites!!! Uh_bummer is just a lying scumbag..like the palestinians and Iranians..
The redlines for Israel are:
1) Quanity of HEU from Natanz
2) Delivery of S-300 missile system
Not much sand left in the hourglass.
Wow....can stern language be far behind?
Oh, no - NOT sanctions! It hurts, it hurts...
Iran is determined to commence World War III, a conflagration which is striding boldly our way down Main Street with a neon sign on its head, and no one in a position of authority is doing a thing about it.
Least of all the feckless, ignorant, and incompetent Moslem Obama, who is nothing but an empty suit with a teleprompter, given to expressing his admiration for all things Islamic and openly hostile to Israel, our ONLY reliable ally in the Middle East.
The irony is that when Iran launches its nukes against Israel, Obama will make sure he’s in front of the cameras wringing his hands and cringingly mouthing ex culpas such as, “Who could have foreseen it???”
And he will, of course, blame Israel for the entire mess.
Hey obummer... poop in one hand and “want” in the other... get back to me on which one fills up first.
