Active ImageSanctions are sure to make Iran suffer and increase costs of economic transactions by many times. But the American politicians should pay due attention to two facts.

Sanctions and Iran’s Relations with Regional Countries
Monday, August 2, 2010
Active Image“Security enigma” and “discriminatory double standards” applied to Iran’s nuclear case by international powers such as the United States are the main causes for the escalation of tension over the nuclear program and adoption of sanctions resolutions by the Security Council. Due to vast economic and political interactions among regional states, they currently see Iran as an opportunity offered to them despite all obstacles created by international sanctions.
