Are U.S. sanctions against Iran working?

The U.S. has very strict sanctions on Iran. The goal?  To curb Iran's nuclear program. Though the sanctions have succeeded in making certain goods pricey, Iranians still have ways of getting around them.

Erin Burnett is in Iran with a look at how sanctions are impacting everyday life in Tehran.

    more than one person said they wanted Iran to be respected internationally. I think this desire come from the fact that Iran known as Persia had the largest empire 400-200 bc the world has ever known.

    "We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each others' happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone." (Charlie Chaplin)

    Erin Burnett's broadcasts from Iran are excellent. They go a long way toward bettering our understanding of that nation. Journalism of this quality helps us to intelligently assess U.S. policies relating to Iran.
