besides not doing a single thing to stop iran from developing anything (iran's pretty self-sufficient as it is and has survived for a long time being more isolated than israel itself) these sanctions are only going to explode in the un's face. i'm calling it now. oil is too precious a resource--and the west's hypocrisy on a nuclear mideast, vis a vis israel is too laughable--for this to have any real effect. what WOULD have an effect? i have no idea. i'd imagine that negotiations would be more effective in winning over iranian public opinion (at the present even the green movement support's iran's nuclear program) though.
