Is Wright Right?

An interesting analysis that I'm quoting here because the public economics aspect is relevant to what we are studying. But the use of U.N peacekeepers often doesn't seem to work. And while the coalition that was put together for the first Gulf War was effective, the U.S. declined to go that route the next time around and had many fewer allies in Iraq. Allies tend to not want to escalate to war and stick with sanctions. Maybe that's a good thing, but it's not in Wright's analysis.
