So many people still believe that sanctions against a Nation that defies the wishes of the US are merely harmless political ploys where no one gets hurt. Wrong.


Medicine:

Iranian doctors, patients and officials say that, in particular, a ban on financial transactions is so effective that even medicines and other critical supplies that are exempted from the sanctions for humanitarian reasons are no longer exported to the Islamic Republic. www.nytimes.com...


The effect, the experts say, is being felt by cancer patients and those being treated for complex disorders such as hemophilia, multiple sclerosis and thalassemia, as well as transplant and kidney dialysis patients, none of whom can afford interruptions or delays in medical supplies. www.washingtonpost.com...

Currency and thus...food:

Western sanctions are compounding the country's economic woes, sending the national currency into a nosedive and making dollars hard to come by. The situation has worsened significantly in recent months; the latest US and EU sanctions on Tehran came into effect in July. As a result, the prices of chicken, milk, cheese, bread, sugar and yogurt, among other staples, are now rising almost every day. www.guardian.co.uk...

What right does the US, or any Nation for that matter have to silently starve a people into submission? Keep medical needs from those that need it? Is this not a form of torture?

This is simply barbaric IMO but as long as there are no bombs dropping, it's all good right? No dead children on the MSM. No homeless seniors. No screaming in the streets. Yup, sanctions are the No-Victim way to force a people to their knees.

Wake up. Sanctions are a slow but deliberate form of torture and suffering that is wrapped in a nice soft, acceptable word...sanctions. Kinda rolls softly off the tongue right? Much more palatable than torture, starvation, murder, suffering...

sanctions that target the weak and sick is just cruel, cowardly and inhumane.

that is what the united states stands for. targeting sick kids.

not man enough to deal man to man.

i have a hard time believing americans would tolerate that. that being done in your name.

Sanctions have always been used by the US to try and force a war, one that the opponent starts so that the US can stand tall and claim, 'they attacked us!'

The classic is WW2 where Japan had little choice but to go to war as the US were starving them of oil.

This is no different except that Iran is wiser. Iran knows that an attack is imminent, she has though delayed it to get herself as ready as she can be.

Sanctions (International) - coercive measures adopted by a country or group of countries against another state or individual(s) in order to elicit a change in their behaviour.

Destroy the morality of the individual so the population rises up to elicit change of Government - that government being a puppet of the US.

Either way (bombs or sanctions) the innocent takes the wrap - either way the US Government wins

THE AGENDA MOVES FORWARD - THE US GOVERNMENT IS THE PUPPET OF THE NWO

The point of sanctions is to put political pressure on the leaders from within. The idea is that a disgruntled public will topple the leaders from within. The uprising in summer of 2011 or so probably motivated the west to impose crippling sanction, because they saw the potential to mobilize the masses within Iran once more, with a different outcome maybe.

Only because there is a bad guy does not mean there is a good guy. The US starved Japan for oil, but Japan was gearing up to go on a conquest in Asia.

Absolutely.

You can be sure that the elite, politicians and military are all well fed and have all their medicines in abundance.

It won't be long till all of us in the west are under economic sanctions, we will all soon find out what it feels like to be staving and in need of medical supplies that are just not available to the average joe on the street IE: all of us.


The only reason the world is on the brink of a major world war is because there not enough supplies to go around because the greed of the wealthy, it will reach all of us soon enough.
