Thoughts on Sanctions

National Review;9/17/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 18, p1136
This article presents information on issues related to the trade sanctions imposed on the Soviet Union by the U.S. U.S. President Ronald Reagan stated that sanctions were imposed on the Soviet Union after the imposition of martial law in Poland, not only for strategic reasons but also to put pressure on the Soviets to allow the Poles to sort out their own problems. However, the sanctions had no discernible effect on Soviet behavior toward Poland, or on the Polish regime's behavior toward its own citizens.
