Why US Sanctions on Iran Will Not Work
Two words-North Korea.
Huh? Think about this. How many years has the US and others tried to ween or prevent NK from obtaining nuclear weapons? About 20 yrs. The world has tried in vain all sanctions and other covert activities to first, stop NK from developing it and then tried to stop them from building them. We have cut them off, starved them (or their people), isolated them, threatened them, sent covert activities and nada.
Nothing has prevented NK from obtaining them. Not only that, they actually have the gall to export their knowledge and technology for money to Syria and Iran. Since 2006, they have conducted 2-3 nuclear tests. Where did the leak or gap in preventing happened that allowed NK to get the bomb?
Our ally, Pakistan, in the 1990, by bribing Pakistan's nuclear scientists, in some cases, paying up to $3 million and NK provided missile technology to Pakistan as well. Once the installations were built, centrifuges were installed and so on. Still, NK was able in 2009-10, to ship 19 missile systems, all Russian designed, to Iran. Now, NK has over 3-5 long range Rodong-1 aimed at Japan loaded with nuclear bombs. They have 200 of the missiles each with a 1600 km range. Iran buys $2 billion worth of missile technology from NK annually.
In 2009, President Obama extended sanctions against NK, further tightening the noose. What did NK do? Fired more missiles and conducted more tests.
Does any of this sound familiar now with Iran? NK is Iran's blueprint to the nuclear bomb. Nothing has changed Iran's behavior. Nothing will. Just expect that this time, Israel, will attack since the US have provided them with four more KC air fuel tankers and America's best bunker buster bomb-the GBU-31.
