As Iran's defiance continues to further isolate the country, the often missed side of the growing crisis with Iran, is the effect this isolation has on the Iranian people.

Much like Iraq prior to the beginning of the current war, it is the people not the military or leadership that suffer the most from sanctions imposed by the UN.



recall the pre-invasion Iraq model, where the neocons reasoned (incorrectly)
that the populace would recieve the US/coalition with open arms & shower them with flowers??

this is the same unreasonable model that the neocons & Bush/Cheney regime are flogging our psyches with again,
but this time its Iran citizens
that are supposed to welcome the US destruction of the Iranian military infrastructure,
the militias, the far flung labs & processing facilities engaged in the nuclear enrichments....etc,

but i have the counter notion that all these embargos, sanctions, bad world press...
will actually unite the Persians in solidarity with their Supreme Leader
and the larger Islamic revolution including the revolutionary guards.

this repackaged spinn is one sided, & the american consumer of news is mostly aware that the news media is conducting propaganda and social engineering and conditioning (with this additional dis-infomation)....

the article should give one insight as to the game being played upon
them, and not be accepted as a model or dogma to be blindly followed.

imho

This is why their government wants the US to attack them. With their wealth rebuilding anything we blow up would be rather easy, but two or three generations of fresh extremist is priceless.

Their young people are saying “why can’t we have this, or why can’t we do this?” and the government is scared that their absolute power will slowly go away with their radical views. With an evasion from America they can once again secure their power with a reenergized extrememist society.

and who will invade america to save the neocon's extremist agenda from the young (and old) people saying, "but it's a constitutionally guaranteed right! you have undermined the ideals you swore to protect when you took office. you have lied about EVERTHING and cost america TRILLIONS of dollars, and HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of LIVES with your criminal behaviour!"?

america will invade america, hopefully. chinese is a complicated language to learn.
