I bet most of you believe that The Cold War ended in Reagan’s administration. Surprise, surprise.
The Russian Ministry is calling the Obama administration’s sanctions hasty and reckless and could probably hurt Russian-American relations. This is amusing since the annexation of the Crimea pretty much hurt relations already.
The Ministry stated that these sanctions will probably boomerang, hurting our economy.
Even considering the state of our economy, the United States will survive, but Russia will not due to deeper economic problems that have plagued them for years. They must know this, but still continue their unconscionable behavior.
The real problem is that the world will be in considerable disarray for years to come and all because of a tin pan dictator who is willing to smash it all for the sake of his lousy ego and thoughts of historical grandeur.
