For 33 years these bastards have lied to the naive Iranian people.  Iran has on average has had a GDP growth rate of ~1% per year.  Last year Iran's GDP grow by 2.5% vs.  Turkey at 8.5%.  These are all losses that our people have incurred so the mullah's can stay in power.  These sanctions will ruin Iran and it's oil industry and will entrench the regime.

Embargo against the Iranian banking system is 100 times worse than the oil embargo, because a lump of cash which cannot be "swiftly" accessed and utilized, is a lump of crap.

The real people of Iran are the ones that will meet most of the hardship.

The Akhunds have killed everyone around them and now they are asking the very same people to defend the revolution which has no value for the ordinary people but everything for the Akhunds!!!
