    Similarly, one can also say it's not proven that there are difficulties in obtaining medicines.  IN any event, shipping medicines or removing them from the sanctions list is pretty straightforward.

    THere's something highly unsavory to permitting group of people who are by all accounts prone to violence, including against their own countrymen, access to nuclear weapons because they decide to hold those countrymen hostage.  Remember the government that wants the weapons and the kids needing medicines are two separate groups of people.   A small cadre is holding an entire nation hostage to get what it wants.

    Who's to say that our nasty theocratic regim would give the kids the drugs, since they're already holding those kids hostage?

    It isn't pretty but none of the option are good

    •  Prone to violence... that's hilarious! (0+ / 0-)

      I seem to recall that one of our countries has the other surrounded by military bases and is fighting a hot war along the entire eastern border of the other, and has a long history of successfully meddling in the internal political affairs of the other.

      Must be Iran, since they're the violent ones, right?
