THe situation was 10000 times worst right after the 1979 revolution and during 8 years war with Iraq. People had to line up to buy foods. Iranians survived until today and made significant progresses. Sure there are people who cursed the government because during the Shah time, situation was lots better in term of food.
The more the west is pinching the people of IRI, the better the people will be. Sure the general people will suffer for next few years, but they will find better ways to survive and progress.
Can the West understand?
