An Act of War

Trade embargoes are an act of war, and they strengthen the hand of hardliners within a given country.  If you want to go to war, impose trade sanctions.  Iran has shown astonishing self control in the face of the USA-backed murderous sanctions, especially when it is a country who leaders believe God will avenge them on USA.  Perhaps He will.  But regardless, trade embargoes necessarily make for distorted markets and a ripple effect of hard feelings, where not outright war.
