Reasons to agree:
- Sanctions just harm those who are out of power. If the rulers are bad, they will ensure that they will never be harmed, no matter how bad the country gets.
- Sanctions are the only way to punish a country without war. War is bad. Sanctions are less bad than war.
- Sanctions may make political reform more likely. People don't change their political systems when things are going good. Sanctions make things go less good in a country. Sanctions make the news. Sanctions make people think that the rest of the world dissaproves their countrie's leador's actions.
- We deserve the right to determine the minimum set of ethical standards for people to meet in order for our country to do business with them.
