Sanctions

France and the others were right. The sanctions on Iraq were working perfectly.

A U.S. investigation has disclosed that Iraq concluded an intermediate-range missile deal with North Korea in 2001.

David Kay, who headed a Bush administration team in the search for Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, disclosed the agreement last week. Kay said the report of an Iraqi-North Korean deal emerged in Iraqi government documents as well as in interviews with captured Iraqi officials.

Iraq signed a $10 million contract to buy technology and equipment from North Korea for the production of ballistic missiles based on the No-Dong intermediate-range missile. U.S. officials said the deal was completed in June 2001.

All I know is that 10 million dollars buys a lot of food and medicine.
