UN Human Rights Expert Urges US to Lift Sanctions That 'May Exacerbate the Already Dire Humanitarian Situation in Syria'

So, sanctions “may exacerbate the already dire humanitarian situation”. In case you haven’t noticed, that’s exactly why the sanctions are put into place - and don’t expect it to change, 'cause the controlling elites like the situation and the vast majority of the American population couldn’t give a rat’s ass as long as they have their latest iPhone, a reality TV show, and some fast food.

Sanctions and boycotts don’t do well unless they are well attended.
It would be great if the rest of the world would join together against the U.S. and sanction or boycott us until we change our ways.

Hi Gandolf:

Ever since reading about what happened to the citizens in Dresden in WW 2, it seems that both America and now Israel just want to bomb the crap out of any nation that they can. And then of course, so many in Congress invest in these killer companies.
When people are kids they think America is a great nation----but when you read more and more, you cry more and more of what America truly is. : (

United Nation Humanitarian Agencie should simply ignore the US sanctions that are illegal anyway and help the Syrian people.

… despite claims by the Trump administration and congressional leaders that
the measures aren’t intended to harm the people of war-torn Syria, they may do just that.

“May”? Is this Douhan’s or Corbett’s word?
And does the utterer think the equally cruel sanctions on Cuba, Iran, Venezuela, etc.,
may do any good except for the malicious intents of Pompouseo, Abrams, etc.?
