I would like to buy a Persian Ney instrument...... .... but the United States have imposed sanctions against Iran, so any credit card transactions via internet will be blocked, according to the implied sanctions. Do you believe that in a 'free trade' system, the US shall have the power to control the use of internet, in such an authoritarian manner, by impacting the Iranian commerce with Europe ?

Sorry to hear that, Vasilis, the ney is a beautiful instrument. Have you checked out buying one from Turkey? And, in answer to your question, of course what you describe is a mockery of "free trade" as it is normally understood. Maybe we should be thinking for whom "free trade" is "free"...
