Iraq is still under UN sanctions from the Kuwait invasion? Seriously?

Kuwait was invaded two decades ago by a dictator the current Iraqi government executed five years ago.

The UN is just getting around to considering lifting sanctions it imposed before:

-Bill Clinton announced his candidacy for president
-The Soviet Union collapsed
-Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested
-The unification of Germany
-Anyone had heard of Rodney King
-Tim Berners-Lee finalized his proposal for the World Wide Web
-Windows 2.0 was replaced

If nothing else, this is further evidence that sanctions do not work, and punish common people for the actions of the very governments by which they are oppressed.
