Abstract The objective of sanctions to compel Iran to verifiably demonstrate that its nuclear program is for purely peaceful uses may be on its way to achievement but has not been accomplished to date. The international coalition that is imposing progressively strict economic sanctions on Iran has broadened and deepened, producing significant effects on Iran's economy. U.S. officials believe that these sanctions which are now targeting Iran's oil export lifeline caused Iran to return to the nuclear bargaining table in April 2012 with greater seriousness and intent toward peaceful resolution. Many judge that Iran needs an easing of sanctions because the energy sector provides nearly 70% of Iran's government revenues.
