Sanctions may be an Act of War but not a Declaration Of War.

Sanctions are a tricky subject. Although they are not a Declaration of War it could be misconstrued as an Act of War.

The reality of sanctions is that it is a maneuver of child like leadership trying to blame others for their shortcomings and ignorances in dealing with difficult situations and political pressure.

So some one or group doesn't do what you think they should do or you are intimidated by them or paranoid of them. Getting in a pissing match with them to try to make them do what it is YOU THINK they should do solved nothing. It only causes more animosity.

History has proven that sanctions cause war not prevent it.

People should be wary of sanctions because sanctions are not a Declaration of War but can be used as a maneuvering tool to get a Declaration of War.

hope for the best
