West should adopt North Korean model vis-à-vis Tehran, hunger in Iran could prompt regime to ‘consider whether nuclear adventure is worthwhile’, Jerusalem official says.
Iran’s citizens should be starved in order to curb Tehran’s nuclear program, officials in Jerusalem said Wednesday ahead of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming trip to Washington. “North Korea is halting its nuclear program in order to receive aid in food, and this is what should be done with Iran as well,” one unnamed official said.
“Suffocating sanctions could lead to a grave economic situation in Iran and to a shortage of food,” the source said. “This would force the regime to consider whether the nuclear adventure is worthwhile, while the Persian people have nothing to eat…”
Never mind that Article 54 of the Geneva Convention forbids such sanctions.
The reports of similar actions taken against the population of Gaza doesn’t sound so far-fetched now…
So much more I’d like to say but won’t.
