    The stupid idea that Iran will somewhat cave in to pressure from the West is just delusional..Iran doesn't have much in terms of Trade with the West and they've been living pretty comfortably with Western sanctions for over 30 years now..I'm sure another one won't make ANY difference. With the collapse of Western economies and financial system, talking about sanctions against an oil rich nation is not just dumb, but stupid as well. Can't you see?? There's riots on the streets many in European capitals. Somehow, Western leaders seem to be disconnected from reality and obsessed with a non-existent nuclear weapon in Iran.The European public simply don't give a damn about nuclear Iran..They care more about their jobs and economy. Israeli hasbarite can write all the feel good sanctions articles all they want, it won't be any different from the old one..
