ROBERT COOK: "SANCTIONS do not lead to Peace - As History shows, Economic War leads to Physical war. Stiffer and stiffer sanctions provoke countries until they attack us. The US has placed stiff economic sanctions on Iran, as we did on Iraq.

In 1941, we put stiff sanctions on Japan, getting UN allys not to supply oil to Japan (who has no oil reserves of its own), and then Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. If you put a paper bag around someone, they will fight their way out. Sanctions on Iran could result in Iran's missiles hitting a U.S. Aircraft Carrier, for example."
