Bar'el says: "More importantly, if Iran is an insane state, what's the point of sanctions?" Sanctions would be aimed not at the Government but at those people outside the government that support it and make it fanction smoothly. Hence the sanctions would put pressure on the professional class in Iran to topple the insane government. The sanctions need to be smart sanctions and tailored to make the life of the middle classes in Iran a little more difficult. It would be our way of telling them to stop expecting others to topple the insane regime; we can help but you will have to do the heavy lifting.
