Whenever the subject of sanctions as a proven tool to overthrow IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic is raised, regime lobbies and foot soldiers waste no time to attack the concept. Having anything to do with IRR removal, the reaction of these mercenaries is understandable.
But there are also some who abhor what the Islamist Rapists are doing to Iran and Iranians, where it is heading to and would love nothing but to see the back of all of them ASAP. The doubts these people have about the utility of sanction, above all the argument that it will end up with the Islamist Rapists controlling the economy is very much relevant.
Elaine Sciolino, a New York Times reporter who was on the flight that brought Khomeini back to Iran and has been reporting on Iran ever since is one of the rare true experts on the inner workings of the IRR. She describes the situation this way:
“Well, you know, I’m of 100 percent Sicilian descent, so I think the best way to explain it, it’s like little Mafia families. They each have control over certain sectors. So just like in New Jersey, you might have one family that controls the port. You might have one clerical family that controls the port. You might have one foundation that controls all of the contracts that are given out on natural gas. … [There’s] the Foundation of the Oppressed, which has everything from the monopoly of Coca-Cola to chicken parts to shipping licenses. “
Many Mafia infested countries have come to realiz the best way to eradicate the crime syndicate is to go after the sources of their income. To avoid the disastrous military option, with the Islamist Rapists acquiring survival insurance in the form of nuke, airtight sanctions in tandem with moral and material help to the beleaguered Iranians are the least costly way to eradicate the Islamist rapists.
