Richard Gott's claim (13 May) that 'the sanctions menace
has in effect been defeated' with regard to child welfare
in Iraq flies in the face of every available current
briefing from the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) in Iraq, as
UNICEF would have told him had he asked. Gott has fallen
for the fallacy that, simply because the entire society is
not self-evidently on its knees, things are basically fine.
