The Sanctions Dilemma: Saddam vs. the UN


Sanctions against Iraq are a contentious subject both within the United States government and within the United Nations. This paper examines the effectiveness of the United Nations’ enforcement mechanism, themultinational Maritime Interception Force (MIF), as well as the humanitarian and economic effects of the sanctions upon Iraq. An analysis of the risks and benefits of ending the sanctions concludes that due to the limited effectiveness of the MIF, the sanctions in their current form are not worth the resources or the political capital required to maintain them.
