US sanctions endanger security of global community: Analyst

Source: Press TV

A political analyst says by imposing sanctions against Iran to appease the pro-Israel lobbies, the US has ignored the well-being of Americans and the security of the global community.

“In this election year, as in the past, appeasement of the pro-Israel lobbies takes precedent to humanity, to the well-being of Americans, and to the security of the global community,” Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich wrote in an article published on Press TV.

Citing a 2005 report by economists Dean DeRosa and Gary Hufbauer, Sepahpour-Ulrich added that lifting sanctions against Iran would lead to a 10 percent drop in oil prices which in turn would translate into an “annual savings of $38-76 billion for the United States alone.”

The political analyst said Iran is not the only victim of sanctions as other nations, “blackmailed by the US to be its accomplice,” suffer from the economic consequences of these measures.

Describing the US as a “a morally bankrupt nation,” Sepahpour-Ulrich wrote that Washington resorts to sanctions to “eliminate resistance, to attack women and children, the weak and the old, to being about regime change, without fear of retaliation or censure by the ‘peace-loving’ community.”

Sepahpour-Ulrich said although the international community falsely believes that “sanctions are a tool of diplomacy and preferable to war,” they are deadlier than weapons of mass destruction.
