    I don't support implementing sanctions on Iran at all, immediately or otherwise. Sanctions are bull**** and do more to hurt the poor saps living under the corrupted governments than the corrupted governments themselves.

    Good point - it would be helpful if we knew what was being proposed.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    No, I am still questioning what the prior sanctions have accomplished. That is not necessarily an argument to end all sanctions, just perhaps evaluate why they are failing to make a prescribed change that suggestively has not occurred.

    Exactly, I never understood why this isn't a universal viewpoint.

    Probably because of what was pointed out in post 3.

    They are at the table due to sanctions.

    https://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/mideast/RS20871.pdf
    Iran’s crude oil exports are about 1.1 million barrels per day (mbd) at the end of
    2013—far below the 2.5 million barrels per day Iran exported during 2011.
    • Iran’s economy shrank by about 5% in 2013 as Iran’s private sector reduced
    operations and many of its loans became delinquent, and has rebounded only
    modestly since the JPA sanctions relief went into effect.

    Why "Iran Style" Sanctions Worked Against Tehran (And Why They Might Not Succeed with Moscow) | Brookings Institution
    Over the course of the past four years, however, the sanctions against Iran — and the context for them internationally and within Iran — have changed dramatically. Since 2010, the sanctions' impact on Iran has been severe: its oil exports and revenues plummeted; the value of its currency eroded; trade disruptions shuttered businesses and exacerbated inflation. Quietly, a backlash emerged among Iran's political elites against the country's creeping isolation, and the June 2013 presidential election ushered in a moderate new president and the beginnings of a diplomatic breakthrough on the nuclear crisis — achievements that most observers attribute to the impact of sanctions.

    Maybe. Or maybe they are at the table because of wing nuts like Netanyahu and McCain that want to bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran!
