It was quite the study in contrasts. Last Monday, U.S. President Donald Trump stood in front of a packed house at the United Nations to deliver a stinging indictment of North Korea, the harms of socialism and the threat of radical Islamist terrorism. Then, on Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke to a half-filled room in the same hall to deliver a stinging indictment of… Canada.

The British Journal of Global Health has found that the idea that sanctions on Iraq killed 500,000 children was a fiction dreamed up by Saddam Hussein’s government to fuel propaganda against the West.
The North’s statement, carried by state media, said the sanctions were caused by a “heinous US plot to isolate and stifle” North Korea.
