Would you say sanctions simply don’t work?
Sanctions in Iraq in the 90s didn’t help Iraqis rising up against Saddam, Sanctions against North Korea The Kim family has never ever caused any kind of revolt, sanctions in Iran again don’t to affect the Iranian regime at all. Have sanctions EVER worked at all?

Only ones that most of the world participated in. South African apartheid falling apart can be at least partially attributed to worldwide pariah state status.

Sanctions don't work, when other countries don't comply with them. China and India still buy oil from Iran, and the UK, France, Germany, Russia, China and the EU still want the Iran deal to work. Trump is a f^cking idiot. By the way, Trump tariffs aren't working either.

Wimpy TRUMP can only think of hurting their pockets with sanctions.
How about let the world take care of its self?

I'll tell you what doesn't work. Giving Iran, the #1 state sponsor of international terrorism in the World, $4.4 Billion tax dollars. That's what Obama did and we wonder where Iran got the money to bomb Saudi Arabian oil fields. Weird

Sanctions work and have worked, but you can't go drawing red lines in the desert and backing down. It makes your enemies disrespect you. Obama can tell you all about that, since that's what he did. You have to stand strong.

They are working as we speak. The threat of sanctions has cause the Mexicans to help secure our border, led the Canadians and Mexicans to renegotiate NAFTA. Sanctions have resulted in China changing some of their trade policies. You need to get better informed.

I wouldn't say that at all. Of course sanctions work. The North Korean people are starving and so are the Iranian people. It's only a matter of time before the people of those countries revolt.
Isolating a country pushes democracy forward. People is those countries know what is better.

Sanctions worked and Iran agreed to a nuclear deal to lift those sanctions. It does not work this time because Trump is not making any demands. He just wants to talk. Talking solves nothing if it is just talk. Trump probably wants the Iranians to bribe him by threatening them with economic ruin. That is why he wants to talk in private with the Iranian leaders.
