the "facts" from Mr Ross may be correct in numbers related to Iran's economy ; but not with respect if the sanctions are really wotking to deter Iran on his nuclear ambitions neither on the consequences of a desperate Iran attacking Israel or other strategic USA interests? I think that naivite from the USA is still there. In any case, Israel cannot rely on USA protection....must relay on its own protection....it seems that the West have not learn much from the 2nd WW...or still doesn care?
