The imposition of sanctions has had a devastating impact on the Iraqi people in particular. Through the sanctions there was a flagrant violation of human rights upon Iraq, regardless of the fundamental reasons and those who caused these sanctions. The Iraqi people were the main victims of the three massive wars, the Iraq –Iran war (1980-1988), the second Gulf War (Iraqi invasion of Kuwait 1990), and the US invasion of Iraq in (2003); along with the wrong measures taken by United Nation and the international community towards Iraq. This study is aimed to illustrate the procrastination of the international community and United Nation to mitigate the catastrophic situation in Iraq after the second Gulf War in1991and the post 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq. This analysis’ approach while using the reliable sources and proving real-world events to support the possibility of getting Iraq out of the Chapter VII. This is relevant to the economic sanctions that were imposed upon Iraq since 1991. In this research we will depend on the study of the Iraq’s legal position before and post the 2003 invasion, which should be no longer subjected to the sanctions and remissions, particularly all the sanctions from Iraq after overthrowing Saddam Hussein’s regime. Thus after the big change in Iraq, the Iraqi people were eagerly hoping for a restoration of peace and to the removal of the long term of oppression that extended for three decades by dictatorship of Saddam Hussein. The research also attempts to clarify the situation of the international community of pro-US invasion in Iraq and opening the opportunity for the Iraq’s neighbouring countries to expand their leverage in the region. Instead of maintaining and keeping the international peace and security, they dragged the whole region into endless conflicts and every day’s humanitarian crisis.
