Runaway inflation is ravaging Iran’s economy, but the rogue nation has been able to continue its nuclear and missile programs unabated, according to a new LIGNET.com intelligence analysis. It is clear that U.S. and European sanctions against Iran are not having their desired effect.

In just the past two months, the Iranian currency has lost half its value, and the government is being forced to phase out subsidies for fuel and other staples. Sanctions from the United Nations, United States and the European Union have contributed to the economic woes, but Iran has succeeded in maintaining a firewall between its weapons programs and the rest of its economy. The question now is whether the firewall can hold, and for how long. Impatience with Iran is building.
