" The crimes of the U.S. throughout the world have been systematic, constant, clinical, remorseless, and fully documented but nobody talks about them. "

Sanctions Against Iraq
The UN Security Council imposed comprehensive economic sanctions against Iraq on August 6, 1990, just four days after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. When the coalition war had ousted Iraq from Kuwait the following year, the Council did not lift the sanctions, keeping them in place as leverage to press for Iraqi disarmament, return of prisoners of war and other goals. The sanctions have remained in place ever since. The US and UK governments made it clear early on that they would block any lifting of sanctions as long as Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein remains in power. Though the international community increasingly criticized the sanctions because of their harsh impact on innocent Iraqi civilians and their lack of pressure on Hussein, the US and the UK have blocked many proposed reforms. A UN “Oil-for-Food Program,” started in late 1997, has offered some relief to Iraqis, but the humanitarian crisis continues. Several UN Secretary Generals have criticized the sanctions as a "blunt instrument" and UN agencies such as UNICEF have documented the heavy human cost, especially for children. This section covers a wide range of sanction issues, including the humanitarian impact and the Oil-for-Food Programme.
