This is a great article which explains why Yankee economic sanctions on Russia won’t work. One reason is that it drives Russia to become more self-sufficient, which it is doing. It also drives Russia and China closer together. Both Russia and China together are self-sufficient whereas Yankees are not. Neocons in power refuse to understand this as they myopically ride off on their hobby horses, yelling AMERICA FIRST. Kissinger’s dream of pitting Russia and China against each other is going up in flames.
