Sanctions: A Win for Saddam?
Friday, Feb. 23, 2001

As Secretary of State Powell heads to the Mideast, he has promised to 're-energize' U.N. sanctions against Iraq. However, as Arabs and some U.S. allies complain the sanctions hurt the Iraqi people more than Saddam Hussein, the once-forbidden commerce in goods and oil is resuming.

Here, Clovis Maksoud, former Arab diplomat, and Charles Duelfer of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, discuss the dilemma facing the United States: to maintain effective sanctions is increasingly implausible but to abandon them will hand Sadaam a long-sought victory.
