DUH! Of course it is. That Iranian regime keeps calling for the fall of the United States. It keeps snuggling up to that whack Chavez in an effort to bring about OUR collapse. It is waging a cyber war against us from Latin America. OF COURSE the point of sanctions is to get rid of that Iranian regime. As well it should be!

We already unseated their government once.

Duh. They want regime change. Overthrowing them once wasn't enough...

Will they put Al-Ciada in control like they did in Libya? You betcha.

Yeah the Obama admin has to get with it, hey? Obama needs to learn the art of pathetic political lying. Maybe he could suggest Iran is harboring water pistols. About as meaningful as the Iraq WMD.

The goal maybe regime collapse but before it does the citizens of Iran will face starvation and heavy losses. That really bothers me. I realize that the current regime is not easy to work with and has some evil intent but the thought of the children of that country starving sickens me. I know that the people are not living lives of luxury now but how bad will it get before their gov't collapses?

Of course they want a regime change....or do you think the main goal of military action is to kill as much civilians as possible? (As some people here on the forum constantly imply).

Have a look at this from ZeroHedge re the similar approach the US and Britain took against Japan in 1940:

Hyperinflation Comes To Iran

This should make the purpose of the Iran sanctions clear.

With this Iran thing, if you go to the Project Camelot achieves you will find an interview “The Anglo Saxon Mission.’ The whistleblower concerned was invited to a meeting which he thought was a council meeting and the other people at the meeting assumed he was one of them.

This interview is very informative, illuminating and will help you join the dots. Note that Iran is not the final target here, they are merely part of the plan.

Consider this for a moment.

Since, for example, Norman times, some families in Britain and Europe have built fortunes which have passed down through the generations. With wealth comes power, with power comes influence, Influence facilitates further wealth and power but it also enables influence over government policy, particularly in key areas and influence also sets the boundaries of government decision making.

It is understandable is it not, that these families over the centuries start to take on a ‘born to rule’ belief and become the shadow government over key countries.

Consider also, the industrial development and the technological era has largely been driven from Europe which means its white, Christian and western.

Now consider, there is a kid on the block and he threatens these peoples power and influence and threaten to kick them out and rule the roost himself.

With this in mind, read the article above in the Project Camelot achieve and all will become clear.

I think we should note that sanctions have been proven to only punish the people of a country. The common fallacy is that after enough suffering, the people will pressure their leadership for change. Look to Cuba or North Korea, are they any less devoted to their leaders? They are suffering our sanctions and embargos etc...yet they seem to accept it as a necessary evil to combat the "Imperialist" agenda. One they suffer from directly and see as a foreign force of subversion.

Sanctions don't help a people rebel, if that enterprise is ever just when speaking of another's country, sanctions only consolidate power for totalitarian governments. That is no secret. It is counted on to happen.

Offering an international safe haven for outcry and humanitarian efforts to be pooled and used efficiently is more effective in establishing dialoged that leads to any real change. If that change is wanted or not is entirely up to the people in question. You cannot free someone who does not need your brand of freedom.

If they are content in their lives with their leadership, they will naturally gravitate back to that mentality which was interrupted. Developing into the natural and logical "next step". To try and force that first step is much like throwing an inexperienced swimmer into a lake with the intention of teaching an already drowning person how to swim. It is an illogical and flawed rationalizing of force.

This just confirms that the US has NO Foreign Policy that is of any benefit to anyone else except the US $ machine.

The world needs Western Leaders with the balls to come out and say that the US Mil Ind Complex IS the problem.
Revoke the US Security Council veto rights. and sanction the US.
