When is the World going to impose sanctions on America?


SPUTNIK – Only when we are living in a world in which sanctions are imposed ‘on’ the United States rather than ‘by’ the United States will we know justice reigns. 

The decision taken by the US Congress to “punish Russia” for alleged meddling in the US elections (…) The legislation also includes new sanctions against not only Russia but also Iran and North Korea, thus maintaining the pattern of waging economic war against states which refuse to accept that Washington’s writ should run wherever it decides whenever it decides. 

Economic sanctions are not the benign instrument that some might assume. On the contrary, they are tantamount to an act of war, a means by which economic might is wielded as a club to bludgeon ‘recalcitrant’ nations and states into submission. And though sanctions may not evoke the same sense of potency of cruise missiles, they kill just the same. The experience of the Iraqi people leaves no doubt of it.

    Agreed. The US should have had sanctions a long time ago.

    I read the Sputnik article which should have substituted the word “Washington” with “Tel Aviv” throughout in order to be accurate.
    When is the world going to sanction Israel until it is no more? In the immortal words of Madeleine Albright (who, if we are stupid enough to believe her, only “discovered” late in life that she is a Jew) I think that price would be “worth it”.
