Economic noose tightens around Iran

The US should wait for roughly six to 12 months to let enhanced sanctions and lower oil prices do their work on Iran. The waiting period may not be reassuring to those who worry that Iran may be pursuing nuclear weaponry and may have a crude warhead in three to four years. However, they should carefully assess the likelihood of Iran's pending economic free fall and the consequences for the regime before seeking immediate negotiations from a position of weakness.

Does the fall of the Soviet Union remind anyone?. The same pattern with this regime is coming together.
