    These Sanctions are Targeted at the Europeans that have been doing Business wit Iran & now must stop as Businesses, Individuals, Banks & America is making NATO-MIDEAST Pay More for EU Oil Protection Needs in the Future. Now the EU can see it is better for them if Iran Collapses like the USSR that made a better World.
