    It’s sad to see an entire nation suffer for the decisions of a select few. But such is history. The sanctions were bold and necessary. I salute the president and other nations that assisted in this. Now, we must remember that things like oil prices and inflation preceded these sanctions, so the proper sanctions should not improperly be used as a cover story for inflation, too.

    “Our goal is to make sure that Putin’s actions are remembered as a strategic failure. THAT is within our control. Full stop.”

    These are not sanctions. It is just a special financial operation.

      ​@ger troyne “Theoretically” .. but tell us what manufacturing do you have at this point? You’re going to be threatening China before you even have that chipmanufacturing up&going ? US would loose the ability to even build new computers if China deems so.

      How many years of advancement would be lost if that happends next week?

      Then we are not even talking about all other industrial manufacturing.

      In a way yes but 7000 nukes is still a power not to be messed with. Putin is a rat. Once cornered with no way out he’s capable of anything imo. Very scary.

      @ellie kwong agree. Study the so called BRIC countries alliance. Russia, china Brasil, south Africa, India Iran and so on. All want to ban the dollar. Don’t see why US government and Pentagon doesn’t pay attention of this world changing fact. No any smart American momentarily to see the danger?

    “Dictators have to pay a price for their aggression.” Well spoken. Totally agree. May that price be ultimate for the dictator himself.

    While the sanctions against Russia have not directly targeted their energy sector, the sanctions may still harm it. The oil industry relies on other industries that are directly targeted by the sanctions. Many of the most profitable oil fields are thousands of miles from major cities. They rely on the domestic air industry which operates a fleet of aircraft purchased from western countries. Those companies are unable to do business with Russia to provide replacement parts and service for those aircraft.

    • Chris Kwakernaat says:

      putin “stole” those planes, he’ll use part of them for spares to atleast keep inland flights going for as long a he can.
      after that , it’ll be a mess..if he’s still in power in a few years , we might see russian built passenger planes,i think he will use the time he bought with those planes to build up the russian aviation industry.
