It is worse than that. US embargoes on trade, travel, and
communication help to keep the targeted governments (North Korea,
Iraq, Cuba, Libya, Burma, etc.) in power by increasing their control
over information and preventing the rise of a serious opposition,
which requires prosperity. As the proverb says, without food there is
no righteousness, and without righteousness there is no food.

Another proverb says, "Walk carefully with the truth under your coat." :-)
