    Sanctions as U.S. Foreign Policy tool

    What is the US planning in Azerbaijan with the sanctions? I thought Azerbaijan was friendly with the US, so why the sanctions?

    This is a clear coercion attempt on the current regime.  The current regime was in Washington's pocket or so it seemed but
    has left the reservation.  The stellar intellects in Washington (and elsewhere) think they can pressure them back into
    conformity.  In reality, they can lose it all.

    OMG, I wish the persons deciding to do this, (sanctions) had a brain cell working.

    Sanctions are one of their oldest and most favourite controls.

    US and UK sanctions which pretty much amounted to a blockade of Japan in the late 1930s led to Japan first expanding north towards Siberian oil where they were stopped and Khakalin Gol by Zhukov, so they turned south to the Pacific starting the Pacific War of WWII.

    Ironically now the attack on Pearl Harbour if it happened today would be described by the Bush family as pre-emptive self defence...

    US imposes sanctions on Iran.

    I don't know if these will stick, I don't think Russia and China, will follow these(the whole reason the Iran nuclear deal was made was because Russia and China told the US that they are going to start doing business with Iran and they don't care about the west's sanctions on Iran, this was done so a multi polar world would be born).

    Iran has gotten back most of it's assets and countries are doing business with Iran, so what is this suppose to mean? This just hot air?
