These are hopeful times, albeit guarded, but hopeful nevertheless. After so many years, those who long for Iran and Iranians to be freed from the unreformable, expansionist and warmongering Islamist fascism have a reason to be hopeful.

Despite the foot-dragging by those countries reaping financial benefits from the disastrous Islamist Appease-in-Chief Obama legacy nuke deal with the Islamist fascists’ Führer, foreign companies are leaving Iran in droves.

Those who despise war and wish an end to the Islamist fascist nightmare, can hope the beginning of the current backbreaking sanctions will lead up to airtight one, like the one that emancipated South Africans from the despicable Apartheid.

Lets not forget, the late Nelson Mandela was an unapologetic advocate of severe sanctions against his homeland under the occupation of Apartheid system, history has issued its verdict on his morally justified stance.

Airtight sanctions - which includes oil - a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
