Re: The Great Iran Charade

Rich,

Not only will sanctions not work, they may actually be counterproductive.

A recent monograph published by the Strategic Studies Institute examined the behavior of five oil exporting regimes (including Iran) and found that defense spending tended to go up after sanctions were imposed.

I wrote about it last week here. The original monograph is here.

The original is a very interesting read.
