TO THE EDITOR:
The articles on economic sanctions (1-3) miss the most crucial point; specifically, that they are illegal under international law. Madeleine Albright (2), a staunch defender of “international norms” and human rights, would have us believe that the United Nations or United States “does not intend to create unnecessary hardships for innocent people, especially children and infants.” Morin and Miles (3) advocate the desire to “amend the structure and application of economic sanctions … to better protect the health of all populations.” Morin and Miles are deluding themselves, and Ms. Albright is misleading the public.
