Didn't we impose economic sanctions on Japan before WWII? Look it up.

Yes, US imposed economic sanctions on Japan. That is kinda WHY they BOMBED Pearl Harbor.
"After Japans invasion of China, all western countries controlled by the US FORCED SANCTIONS against Japan. This hindered the military operations of Japan and so they tried to enter into certain political negotiations with the US to overcome the bottleneck.
During this period they launched an unwarned ATTACK on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor."

Well done Eleanor! Now, all of you ask youself: If I were Iran how would I deal with the 'western' treat to the nation. The US has the military power to destroy the country or, with it's allies, to cripple the economy. What would you suggest, give in, fight or threaten ...

Ah... Yes ... Our Congress going to bat for Israel. Don't you wish they worked as hard for America and The American Tax Payers. Oh... yes ... by the way, the Congress even pays them and kiss their Kosher Asses for the honor! I bet somewhere over there you can find a big heart carved in a tree with an arrow through it that says Congress loves Israel!

Let's see, Japan had pretty tough allies. Yep, our sanctions hindered their War effort. Fighting was fierce and VERY brutal in the Pacific Area....then along came Fat Boy.
Oh, but wait? What is hiding in THEIR pantry???
How about Iran stops their threatening and posturing and WE leave them to their burkas and sand?
