I chose No.

Economic sanctions against a country with whom we do little trade has no effect other than to create a few headlines.

With regard to 'supporting terrorism': where's the evidence? Is it evidence similar to that of the 'weapons of mass destruction' that Iraq supposedly had (has)?

Securing their borders: Since Iraq borders Syria and the U.S. controls Iraq, seems that the U.S. can't secure the borders that they control.

I chose "no" just based on the information you gave, but that's not much. I don't know the full story behind this yet, so maybe I'll change my mind.
