Ron Paul seems to think Sanctions are an Act of War.

The slow killing of children, the elderly, through starvation and lack of medicine in Iraq is said to of caused over 500,000 deaths. Perhaps, the semantics of language are less important than the acuteness of mass death that is directly attributed to our foreign policy of coercion through sanctions.

You don't make friends with your enemies by blowing up or in this case starving their children.
