    Re: Do sanctions work?

    Seems to be that if the other side is ideologically fixed in it's course, sanctions are not effective - apart from crippling the economy - as we can see in the case on North Korea which at the end got it's nuclear bomb.

    Same thing is happening now with Iran.

    Re: Do sanctions work?

    It depends upon what the sanctions wish to accomplish. They seemed to prove somewhat effective in South Africa in ending Apartheid. "In 1990 President F.W. de Klerk released Nelson Mandela after twenty-seven years of imprisonment, opened negotiations with the ANC and scrapped most of the apartheid laws. In 1992 a strong majority of the country's white population voted to endorse de Klerk's dismantling of apartheid and the extension of political rights to the black majority. When this happened, President Bush lifted the economic sanctions, claiming that the purpose of the bill, SANCTIONS AGAINST SOUTH AFRICA (1986), had been successfully carried out."
