The article presents a brief history of sanctions and their use by various countries to economically isolate rogue nations, such as Iran. An example is given of the September 25, 2009 warning by U.S. president Barack Obama in response to Iran's admission that the country has been concealing a uranium-enrichment facility. Historical examples, and statistics, related to the effectiveness of sanctions, including their use during World War I (WWI) are presented.
