There needs to be a human face on 'sanctions'

that word just kind of blends into the narrative with no profound meaning to anyone who isnt interested or affected directly. It is so easy to say "big deal. So they can't trade with us, our allies-or in the case of a no-fly zone, anyone on the outside. Why do we even owe the Iranians anything? They can tap their own resources. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone." People need to see what is being withheld from whom and the human impact. Medicine, food etc. May as well be sending them a natural disaster that decimates entire populations. Of course it's an act of war.
