    Apparently sanctions on Iran are working but people say in spring we will witness the cycle start anew.

    The challenge for Western leaders is to continue to stay Israel’s hand and ensure sanctions enveloping Iran are tightened even further. Do you agree?

    The sanctions on Iran are not working, nor have they ever worked. If anything, sanctions have only forced Iran to accelerate their nuclear efforts.

    The dictators in charge don't care at the end of the day when they still have their wealth, whores, etc and everyone else stands in line for stuff....see the USSR.

    Costing the average Iranian $3-$5 per gallon more for gas doesn't bother the chimp mouthpiece of Iran, because his ultimate goal is to bring back the 12th Imam with nuclear war.

    Obama doesn't want to believe that the sanctions are being broken by various means every step of the way!

    In any case Iran has the support of Russia and China and other nations while the sanction business is going on at full speed. Iran and North Korea are close allies and help each other and NK has already developed and effective nuclear weapon.... it could also be said that therefore by transfer Iran already has nuclear weaponry available!

    All talks and sanctions are a waste of time. Obama has made the US a toothless tiger and the world will pay the price sooner or later!
