We're Already Killing Iranians, Starting With the Young, Old, and Weak
This is from Reuters:
Bread prices have tripled since December, while rice costs about $5 per kg (2.2 lbs). Iranians earn about $350 a month on average, while officials put the poverty line at $800.
This should come as cheerful news, eh? Perhaps we'll take out another 500,000 children as in Iraq (H/T Madelein Albright). That ought to be delightful reporting for this glorious election season. I know it sounds fascistic when discussed in these terms, but what we'll do is just mention sanctions and describe them as hurting an Evil Nation. We won't mention that any people live in that nation. Unless the Iranian government kills anybody. Then we'll comdemn Iran for "killing its own people." Everyone knows that the proper moral conduct for a government is to focus on killing somebody else's people.
