Iranian Sanctions

Here’s something to contemplate as the US seeks to impose ever tougher sanctions on Iran.

In 1936 or so Japan was becoming more and more aggressive in seeking resources for its growing economy. The powers that be in the world sought to keep Japan confined to its own little corner of the Pacific and we all know how that turned out.

In the case of Iran we are reversing the situation, keeping Iran from exploiting its natural resource, oil. Is there a possibility of a similar reaction from them that Japan chose?

While I have no doubts about the worlds ability to handle Iran if the gloves came off please consider who Iran’s biggest and staunchest ally is. What would it mean to the world if Iran went off with a bang, the world moved to crush it, and Russia stepped in on Iran’s side?
