    We must stop the wide-spread targetting of civilians by a brutal dictator, even if some of the popular revolution are bad people.

    I suggest that you research into the list of US corporation and state bodies that will not trade with Vietnam (even though everybody else in the world does)

    You only need to go to your local supermarket or mall to see that you are wrong about sanctions on Vietnam. Both places are FULL of Vietnamese exports of everything from toys to fish filets There are also 2 non-stop flights a day to Hanoi from LAX. Vietnam is a major trading partner with the US.

    Read on about what the US does when it comes to sanctions - and who is targeted and who is exempted - lol

    "WASHINGTON – The United States on Thursday exempted China and Singapore from sanctions over purchases of oil from Iran, hours before restrictions would have entered into force against their banks.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a statement that China and Singapore had “significantly reduced” their crude oil purchases from Iran, joining most major economies in receiving exemptions from the new US law.

    Under a law aimed at pressing Iran over its nuclear program, the United States after Thursday will impose sanctions on financial institutions of countries that deal with Iran’s central bank, which handles the country’s main export.

    Clinton credited the threat of sanctions with severely cutting Iran’s crude oil exports and estimated that it cost the country some $8 billion in lost revenue each quarter.

    “Their cumulative actions are a clear demonstration to Iran’s government that Iran’s continued violation of its international nuclear obligations carries an enormous economic cost,” she said in a statement.

    Clinton exempted members of the European Union and Japan in March and on June 11 made the same exceptions for India, Malaysia, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Turkey and Taiwan.

    But the United States waited until the last minute to exempt China and Singapore, with US officials holding weeks of talks with the two Asian nations on the issue.

    Are you claiming that sanctions work?
