Will Iran pay up? Or will we bomb them to "make them pay"?

Hi Pollshifter,
There’s no way to collect except to seize Iranian assets, which depends upon being able to locate them — no easy feat given the regime’s expertise at hiding them to avoid U.S./UN sanctions on the nuclear program — and then confiscate them per U.S. and international law. The verdict’s largely symbolic.
