It also discusses the use of force, United Nations measures, and reprisals as forms of punishment. It also describes alternative possibilities of punishment, ranging from the severance of diplomatic relations to the sequestration of property, destruction of installations and demolition of factories, blockades, boycotts, embargoes, heavy fines, levies and seizure of assets, enforced disarmament, and military occupation.
