Iraq UN Embargoes:
United Nations and UNICEF estimate that the United Nations sanctions on Iraq resulted in the death of approximately 1.5 million people, including the death of over 500,000 children under age of 4. In 2002, a 12 non-governmental organizations study group said that the U.N. economic embargo against Iraq was flawed because it severely hurt the Iraqi people while sparing the country's leaders. The United States and the United Kingdom used their veto power to prolong the sanctions, bear special responsibility for perpetuating the sanctions against the wishes of the vast majority of the 15-member Security Council.
