The old expression don’t bring a knife to a gun fight applies here. The USA /NATO alliance should bring out the planes and long range missiles etc and turn Russian into dust. End the war in days
Round up all the oligarchs on bill browders list and charge them with money laundering, racketeering etc
Shut it all down
Russia is not a country...and too many simply don’t care about humanity when there is money to be made
The bottom line is - countries have to pick sides. Those that chose to cheat the sanctions etc should be called-out & face sanctions as well. Russia, now labeled a terrorist country, MUST not profit at any level for its unprovoked war. This war shows the 'homework' the free world has to do to ensure a secure future for all.
We have to boycott these corporations that continue to do business in Russia. For example, Heineken is still operating in Russia. It’s pretty simple how to influence them to pull out of the terrorist state.
GDP is one thing and in Russia's case, it is largely oil and gas. But more important are the profit margins which have to be down 70% or so as prices have plunged 40% or so from last years highs. Profit is needed for the Kremlin war machine and not GDP. So the solution is, in Gov Palins words, Drill Baby Drill. This is what Reagan did to crush the Kremlin and this is what Trump was doing. Biden reversed that but the US (and Canada) needs to reverse course and flood the market with fuel. This will not only crush Putins effort but also crush inflation which is crippling the middle class.
sanctions not really working and putin persists in his attacks .....i really want ukraine to win .....but wonder if david will beat goliath...
