We know US-led sanctions against Iraq after the first Gulf War killed as many as 576,000 Iraqi children. Being cut off in a globalized economy is a certain death sentence for the country's young and vulnerable. That sure is a lot of completely avoidable murder for "peace time". Iran has suffered badly, first with Saddam Hussein's invasion and six years of war with the loss of a half million followed by the sanctions. We've handled Iran wrong for 50 years since the CIA offed their democratically elected leader.

There is no reason to sanction Iran. Iran has not started a war for about two hundred years. The sanctions damage ordinary people less the regime.
