For some reason I read the title as "Arm Embryos - do they need help?" like we should provide little tiny hand guns and machine guns to embryos so they can defend themselves from abortions or something.

Do the UN arms embargoes limit the flow of arms to embargoed targets? And also, should UN act upon the country which has violated sanctions?

Opinions?

more facts needed. Arms embargos aren't enforced by the UN collective, but UN states. There are only about 9 or 10 major arms exporting producing countries.

Arms embargoes are challenging today because many countries addicted to war have their own weapons industry.

9 or 10? I would have thought they were significantly more, have you included the African nations and those in middle east?

Good point. The arms embargo on stronger countries won't work. Even the smaller countries, since their is no mechanism to punish the faulting countries, except warning and condemnation, provides poor incentives for other countries to follow the sanction against their profit.

Now if there was monetary sanction on defaulting countries, maybe the scope would increase.

not sure how accurate this is:

http://en.wikipedia.org...

8 of the top 15 are NATO members, and defense exports within NATO tend be regulated by the US. Switzerland sells mostly to its own military and other NATO countries. Israel/South Korea are major non-NATO allies.

only real country capable of breaching an international arms embargo is Russia.
