On New Year’s Eve 1977 in Tehran, President Carter made the following toast to the late Shah of Iran:
“Iran, because of the great leadership of the Shah, is an island of stability in one of the more troubled areas of the world. This is a great tribute to you, Your Majesty, and to your leadership and to the respect and the admiration and love which your people give to you.”
And now compare it with the statement made by Ismael Ahmadi-Moghadam who is the Commander of the Police Force and “president” Ahmadinejad’s brother-in-law. Speaking on the subject of sanctions and that his police force being in full control of any possible future “economic sedition”, Fars news Agency quotes his as saying:
“Islamic Republic lives like an island of stability in the midst of horrible waves of threats and harms.”
The last time “island of stability” was invoked, very soon after things got unstable leading to change of regime.
Airtight the sanctions, it is working.

Please refrain from using twisted logic just because you want to say something against Fred. Clearly you don't understand what you wrote. The sanctions in 1990's against Saddam didn't work, no thanks to Russians and Chinese! - hence the invasion became a necessity a decade later.
Cater and Ahmadi-Moghaddam, however, had a common theme in their messages: both of them were lies.

I guess that's why Saddam was next door because Iran was just an Island!

I meant that the "airtight" sanctions, other than making orindary iranians lives miserable and slowly suffocating them to death will serve no purpose and will actually bolster the position of the regime (compared to the population) for many years to come. And once the sanctions fail to do their job, the next logical step for the "decmocracy central" is to go to war.

Delusional closet war advocate Fredby MOOSIRvaPIAZ on Sat Oct 02, 2010 02:05 PM PDT
I'm sure I can dig up quotes form Saddam and his minions right after west sanctioned the the whole country "airtight" in the 90s on how resiliante, stable and powerful their regime is. Heck, even right after the invasion
Unlike closet war advocates like you, the sane world understands how that turns out and what will happen to Iran if they airtight the sanctions.
