Real News Network: "Sanctions Against Iranian Banks is Economic Warfare"
"Economic Warfare", perhaps but I would argue that its justifble, because you got a Authoritarian Theocratic Regime. That wants Nuclear Weapons and funds groups that are anti American and against our other allies and has the goal of destroying the Jewish State of Israel, Economic Sanctions slows. Down the Islamic Republic of Iran from obtaining the resources to build their Nuclear Weapons program and if this Theocratic Regime cared, about its people or at least cared more about their. People then obtaining Nuclear Weapons, they would do what they needed to do to end these Economic Sanctions, giving up all aspirations to obtain Nuclear Weapons. This is about keeping Nuclear Weapons out of the hands of people who aren't responsible enough to manage them. And its a much better policy then striking Iran from the air or invading this large country thats about the size. Of Mexico physically and has 75M people, the Islamic Republic knows how to end these sanctions and have decided not to.
