Here is the king of article (Huffington Post) that sours me on the Democratic Party. Bob Menendez is so anxious to continue sanctions against Iran. Sanctions partly affect the militaries of a country, but don't they mostly punish the citizens? Isn't the idea simply to make an innocent population suffer as a means toward achieving the United States' political/military ambitions? At what point does it become appropriate to make citizens suffer for the acts of their government, over which the citizens may have little control?
