Average American or Iranian or any other human being would never know of another persons suffering if the and others are not allowed to practice free reporting of peoples well being. Oh yes the sanctions are hurting mostly your average Iranian. Lack of or very expensive medison, food stuff, oil and gas for heating, cooking or going to work. I say to Americans 2 wrongs don't make right so stop the sanction on people. Government will have to become reasonable and people not in hardship will see ask for more and look for freedom and rights, they will bring Chang. If you look you only see Chang or revolt in rich countries ie shahs Iran. Poor people are too busy looking for their next meal look at Iran now. I say lift the sanction and use a different and kinder attitude, the Iranian regime with is has people that can bring Chang. Do not give a voice to those who show trade blocking and imposing your will on others and causing hard ship on people your way of grabing more land as more oil and Moore of others riches at the expense of people.
Lift the sanction talk more and ask for more of peoples rights as condition of better trade and relation ship. One can Chang every one.

Here is a peek at everyday life: "Iraqi authorities said a cholera outbreak that killed four people had been controlled, blaming contaminated water in a country still struggling with dilapidated infrastructure..."
