07/02/10 – Joy Gordon – The Scott Horton Show

by | Jul 2, 2010 | Interviews

Joy Gordon, author of Invisible War: The United States and the Iraq Sanctions, discusses the comprehensive sanctions imposed on Iraq in the 1990s that killed 500,000 children, the US led effort to literally starve Iraq by cutting off food importation, how the Gulf War and subsequent sanctions destroyed Iraq’s modern infrastructure and prevented rebuilding, contradictory US and UN policies on rewarding compliance of Security Council resolutions and how the US ‘reverse veto’ power guaranteed the sanctions would never be lifted while Saddam Hussein remained in power.
