US Citizen Facing 20 Years in Prison for Teaching Cryptocurrency and Blockchain

If the US government suddenly began a bombing campaign on North Korea which killed thousands of innocent men, women, and children, this would be considered an act of war. However, if the US government intentionally targets these same men, women, and children with economic sanctions — that kill thousands civilians though starvation and illness — this is considered “diplomatic” and a peaceful resolution.

 

Despite US citizens becoming accustomed to hearing their government talk about placing sanctions on various countries, the death and destruction caused by them are still horrific and very real.

 

Sanctions are enforced knowing that one of two things will happen. They are deliberately meant to withhold food, medicine, or resources from citizens of a country to cause horrible suffering and death in hopes of causing an uprising and forcing the citizens to oust their current regime. Or, if the sanction-led death toll among the citizens isn’t bad enough to cause the citizens to rise up, then the sanctions are meant to force the regime to change its own policy.

 

Sadly, no matter what happens, the citizens of the country targeted by sanctions become pawns in the process. These sanctions lead to their death and suffering no matter if they force government change or not. Tens of thousands of innocent civilians in Iran, Venezuela, and North Korea are estimated to have died in just the last year due to the “collective punishment” inflicted on them via US sanctions.
