Iran is a 3rd world under-developed country run by thugs who have delusions of grandeur. Every single one of the countries under Iran's "protection" now, hate Iran. The idea that US sanctions are primarily intended to hurt the Iranian people, rather than admitting that the coming pain will be at the hands of the Bazaris and Speah, is the height of ignorance, and shows the same old delusional tendencies of refusing to admit that WE are the problem.
