    And in the world at large (that is, the world outside the Caucasian population centers) that message is winning the day. Of course, the US does have the ability to isolate Iran. The first thing would be to order their number one trading partner to cut all ties (I'm sure that with enough incentives, the government of Iraq would be willing to do what it is told. The thing is, nothing is more likely to strengthen the insurgency than telling average Iraqis that they have to suffer food shortages, and watch the prices of new vehicles and electronics skyrocket because the US continues to hold a grudge with Iranians for freeing themselves) Then the US can try to pressure China, Turkey, Brazil, and all the other countries that treat Iran like any other democratic industrialised trading partner. They can even try and get Pakistan to close their border with Iran, but that one would be harder than the rest (when Iran talked about closing that border, the panic in Islamabad was palpable.)
