My Question for the CNN Reagan Library GOP Debate: Are Economic Sanctions on Iran Moral

If I were permitted one and only one question for the 16 (Let us hope Gov. Gilmore is invited) candidates at the September 16 debate hosted by CNN and held at the Reagan Library it would be this:

Iranian economic sanctions:  Most of the GOP field seems to be for them even though one prominent US Senator suggested the effect was to ruin or destroy the Iranian economy.  How do you defend as moral economic sanctions that hurt innocent people that have no say in their own government?  If not, how would you change the sanctions regime?

I plan to send this post to CNN for their consideration.

Here is the blog post on the Senator who supports sanctions even though it is hurting the economy.

Here is another about the morality of sanctions with a surprise.
