Iranians are fighting back against their govt. This could be an opportunity...

Don't get it twisted!

The opportunity isn't regime change but a chance to moderate their behavior (if possible).  The West could throw a lifeline to the govt by asking for certain reforms that would help modernize their society.  I'm pretty sure the people would rally behind that.

If we offered increased trade INSTEAD OF sanctions then perhaps we could prime the pump for them to want to join the rest of the world (them being govt officials).

Just an idea.  The over reliance on sanctions has (out of necessity for those affected) created a rival market to that controlled by the US.  If we're being smart we should seek to disrupt moves to the rival market place while we still can.
