The Scourging of Iraq Summary


The Scourging of Iraq: Sanctions, Law and Natural Justice by Geoff L. Simons

The Scourging of Iraq describes the impact of the 1991 Gulf War and subsequent economic sanctions on the Iraqi people. Evidence is presented to show that food and medicine are being denied to the civilian population, and that this involves a gross violation of the 1977 Protocol 1 addition to the 1949 Geneva Convention, which includes the words: 'Starvation of civilians as a method of warfare is prohibited'. Sanctions are considered in a historical, political and legal context, with particular attention to how the economic blockade may be seen as a criminal violation of UN resolutions and the UN Genocide Convention.

The Scourging of Iraq Reviews


'Geoff Simons has written a scholarly and passionate account of sanctions on Iraq that should alert people to one of the cruellest instruments of foreign policy that uses starvation of a people to bring pressure against a government over which they have no democratic control.' - Tony Benn, MP
