the current diplomatic efforts to pass new sanctions on iran are taking too long. however, even if these sanctions are imposed on iran starting this summer, it is doubtful that they will have the desired effect of stopping iran's nuclear weapons program. north korea was able to build a substantial nuclear program despite being destitute and isolated. pakistan, too, managed to accumulate a substantial number of nuclear weapons and the ballistic missiles to deliver them. sanctions can work only if accompanied by a secret but very credible message of a threat of the use of force.
