The destructive nature of IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic, toward Iran and Iranians is a matter of established fact. So is IRR’s funding for international terrorism and the near certainty of it pursuing weaponized nuke in violation of international law.
There are basically two ways of dealing with such unreformable rogue regimes, military action or economic pressure with the intention of ousting them. Happily the world has wisely chosen to forgo the former and pursue the latter.
However, in applying economic pressure, it is being pursued halfheartedly and incrementally. In other word, in the hope of Islamist Rapists seeing the light and changing their ways, the sane world is ratcheting up the pressure piecemeal. I contend, and the evidence indicates that it is the wrong approach.
As it is going, the Islamist Rapists have the best of both worlds. They have the luxury of continuous petrodollars inflow into their coffers, and the newly imposed weak sanctions as the excuse for their thirty two years of thievery and mismanagement.
If the sane world is serious about the sanctions route it says it prefers to the military action, it must then apply it wholeheartedly.
Oil and gas is the lifeblood of IRR, international energy market can easily afford doing without it, stopping the petrodollars inflow is the right thing to do.
Providing the fed up Iranians with material support to overthrow their unreformable tyrants, is the right thing to do.
Support which includes strike fund for key sectors costs fraction of what a single day of military action would cost, is definitely the right thing to do.
To avoid the calamity of having the messianic Islamists with announced mission to “manage the world” get their hand on nuke, adding oil and gas to the list of sanctions is the ultimate right thing to do.
