Iran is going to be referred to the security council.

I: This is terrible. I'm dead scared of the future.

He: Don't worry. It's better that things get cleared. How long should Iran bribe Russia and China.

I: Sanctions will paralyze the country. Another Iraq of 90s.

He: It's different. It will fall down from within the system in Iran.

I: Sanctions usually kill reforms and make dictators more powerful. Look at North Korea or Saddam in 90s. The price of change will be definitely higher now.

He: How long you're going to wait for reform and slow change. this is the start of the end of this regime. and don't forget these guys will sacrifice anything for the sake of their power. So, in they'll give up easier now in council.

I: But they may sacrifice more of people's capital for the sake of their power. Now they should even bribe more. A vote in security council has higher value than a vote in IAEA board

He: ...
I: ...

I'm anything but optimist about Iran.
