Dr. Leon Eisenberg of Harvard Medical School recently wrote that the sanctions against Iraq represent a "disastrous example of war against the public health...the destruction of the infrastructure resulted in devastating long-term effects on health." Water is contaminated and electricity has been limited in a society that had grown dependent on modern facilities. Our professional ethic demands the defence of public health. Thus, as physicians, we have a moral imperative to call for the end of sanctions. Having found the cause, we must act to remove it. Continuing to allow our reason to sleep will produce more monsters.
