    Even these sanctions were passed only through coercion of many UNSC members by Washington. Only Turkey and Brazil would not be intimidated. I know for a fact that in our country majority of the population was against sanctions, yet our ambassador voted in favor because U.S. demanded it. How long this pressure will last is anyone's guess, but it must end someday. Sanctions will not deter Iran. It has suffered far worse. This kind of action is more harmful to the U.S. as it alienates allies and friends, and in the process creates stronger anti- American sentiment.
