What to do with Iran

As we all know Iran has enriched Uranium but whether it is for weapons as the West claims or for energy purposes as the Iranian government claims creates a question on how we should contain Iran. I believe that military action is not the answer. The US army is fatigued after fighting two wars and the American population does not seem ready for another war. I also believe that sanctions are working, according to the BBC the Iran’s currency the rial has fallen against the US dollar over 80% since 2011. On October, 1st 2012 the rial had fallen to a record low to the US dollar. I believe this deflation is a direct correlation to the tough economic sanctions against Iran. This deflation of the rial  will put stress on an already weak Iranian economy and put more pressure on the Iranian government  which has a sizable opposition to fix the problem. I believe that the Iranian government will eventually become afraid of large scale protest it saw back in 2009 and will back off the nuclear issue to relieve the sanctions against its economy, if not we may see in the future more protest and maybe a possible revolution.
