In regards to the effectiveness of sanctions working on Russia; this is what how are top two leaders had to say.
Kamikaze Joe: in an exchange with reporters, this is what KJ had to say.
The exchange comes as the Biden administration continues to insist its threats of sanctions against Russia were never meant to deter an invasion.
“Let’s get something straight,” Biden told a reporter who pressed him on the issue Thursday. “You remember if you covered me from the very beginning, I did not say that, in fact, the sanctions would deter him. Sanctions never deter. You keep talking about that. Sanctions never deter.”
Car-mella’s 2 cents:
“Absolutely – we strongly believe – and remember also that the sanctions are a product not only of our perspective as the United States but a shared perspective among our allies. And the allied relationship is such that we have agreed that the deterrence effect of these sanctions is still a meaningful one, especially because – remember, also – we still sincerely hope that there is a diplomatic path out of this moment,” she said at the time.
One would think, at some point in time these two brain surgeons would get together and compare notes before flapping their lips. They actually are comedy team like Laurel and Hardy, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, Abbott and Lou Costello, Gracie and Allen, Frick and Frack. They are so good they should take their show on the road and stay out of politics completely. Remember what I’ve been saying about the guy who had a foul ball for a son that was running his business. He finally wised up and paid the kid to stay home.
Last but not least, we have KJ stooge/mouthpiece Psaki:
“Sanctions can be a powerful tool,” Psaki said. “They have been in a lot of moments throughout history. And what we view them as – or how we’re viewing them as we’re starting high, as Daleep just conveyed here, in terms of the significance and the severity of the sanctions that were announced today – yes, our intention is to have a deterrent effect.”
Maybe those people are a lot smarter than I thought. If there are two contradicting opinions, one says yes, and the other says no, one of them has to be right. Good strategy folks!!
