The US, in its impotence to stop Russia, no longer knows what else to do..

It has already been proven that US sanctions against Russia and China are of no use; on the contrary, US sanctions have strengthened the two eastern nations..

Keep trying, right now Putin is creating a law to take all US assets in Russia..

A spoonful of your own medicine..

Just confiscate away. Russia won't be sitting at the adult table again anytime soon.

In other words, consumers in the G7 will have access to good cheap technology curtailed and be forced to pay high prices to their domestic rentier class.

Janet "Chopsticks" Yellen is vying with Blinken for worst cabinet member. Show us the international law that supports this proposal Madame Secretary.

Scams in the guise of helping countires, industries through blatant theft and doublespeak are still scams.

Worried about ckimate chabge from carbon emissions?

Provide tanks and HIMAS rockets, that are environmentally damaging.

Just laughable the drivel that comes from these scammers.

Nigerian Princes of the internet are in awe.

They know plenty to do, but nothing can and will be done as long as this admin is still in power.

True, but it has also made Russia more dependent on China, which might come back to bite Russia later in the long run, and China's economy is slowing down, when America sneezes, the rest of the world catches a cold if Americans can't afford to buy more cheap China junk that has a very devastating effect on China's economy.

He can try.

A spoonful of your own medicine.

Not really, not in the long run.

You tell us that Trump will achieve surrender, so by definition the only fighting will be under this admin.

Yes, But not like this admin.

Decoupling, Derisking, Overcapacity…all meaningless. China is the world’s manufacturer. If you only know China as makers of 100 yen or Walmart products, it’s probably because of the income bracket to which you belong.

Imagine their surprise when the US financial dominance collapses because nobody trusts US banks or financial laws anymore. Who will deposit money in a custodial bank that steals from those customers they don't like?

This is as predictable as throwing a brick at a window and forecasting that the window will break. Except to Americans, though. Would be amusing if it wasn't for the likelihood of the US starting World War 3 when reality hits home.

That's absolutely not true

The USA is involved in many and continues to instigate many

And the US border is constantly being invaded too

Americans are to brainwashed to see it

You must be speaking of another US. I was referring to the USA - the one on planet Earth that has its military in over 100 countries.
