"Sanctions sometimes backfire, deepening the suffering of ordinary people,... or even triggering war, as when the U.S., Britain and the Netherlands imposed an oil and steel embargo against Japan in 1941."

That "oil embargo" was the primary reason for the Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor!!!

Yes, sometimes SANCTIONS BACKFIRE!! <with VERY SERIOUS consequences>
