Iran Sanctions Continue to Hurt the Wrong Target

Millions of Iranians are struggling to afford basic food necessities thanks to a spike in food prices caused by US sanctions. Those sanctions continue to be implemented despite the fact that “Washington admits Iran has no weapons program and has not made the decision to start one.”

In short, these sanctions:

  • Hurt average Iranians,
  • Have increased Iranian unemployment,
  • Do not hurt Iran’s leaders,
  • Punish a nonexistent wrong,
  • Are not effective, and
  • Could be construed as an act of war

And yet, the sanctions continue.
