> Sir, United Nations officials working in Iraq seem to have a shorter

> will have to resign, sacrificing their personal careers, before it is

> sanctions policy on Iraq is ineffective, strengthens Saddam Hussein and
> his friends, while condemning the average Iraqi to a life of misery that
> has lasted over nine years?
