Tougher EU sanctions against Iran come into force    Reuters
1. Keep peppering and softening them up for the big blow
which most certainly will deliver a first round knockout.

2. The longest joke in history
Obama, Bent on destroying USA status as superpower, cursing it following his mentor Jeremiah Wright, has allowed Iran to take the piss out of the west for 4 years..That should go into the Guiness Book of records as the longest joke in the World
Norbus ,   Jerusalem   (12.23.12)
3. Let's hope the sanctions willl work
The sanctions are hurting Iran's society and economy deeply. It is not a pretty thing; ordinary people, like you and me, suffer. But if the sanctions can get Iran back to the negotiations table, and if Iran and the West can then make an acceptable deal, then it is worth it. Because who knows what will happen when a war is begun? Look at Iraq and Afghanistan. Did the wars there lead to desirable outcomes? Think about Israel's occupation of Southern Lebanon; what good did that bring? Nothing but it did help to grow and strengthen Hezbollah. Some things cannot be solved by war. Iran's desire for a nuclear weapon may well be such a thing.

4. Iran v world
One thing I know for sure Economic Sanctions will not work against Iran so long as we have greedy people who will do deals under the table behind close doors My answer is for Israel to Finish the job for the world

5. SANCTIONS AGAINST THE IRANIAN REGIME.
AS SOON AS THIS DICTATORSHIP HAS BEEN DEFEATED/DESTROYED, AS IT DESERVES, THEN EVERY OTHER DICTATORSHIP, WHICH SURPRESSES IT"S OWN PEOPLE AND WHICH VIOLATES HUMAN RIGHTS SHOULD BE DEALT WITH SO THAT ALL THE PEOPLES AND THE ENTIRE MANKIND CAN LIVE IN A FREE, HUMAN AND PEACEFULL WORLD.
SJOERD VAN DER VELDE ,   HOORN NH, HOLLAND   (12.24.12)
6. Yet again sanctions on Iran but never on Israel
Why oh why do we keep supporting Israel's brutal and racist occupation and taking action against anybody the Jewish lobby ask us to.
