DoS Announces Sanctions Against Russia

"Today’s actions also serve as notice to Russia that unless it abides by its international obligations and returns its military forces to their original bases and respects Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, the United States is prepared to take additional steps to impose further political and economic costs."
Like shut down dealers who sell antiquities directly derived from sites in the Russian Federation? Yeah, yeah.

I think it is time to admit that US foreign policy and international clout has finally collapsed  in the inept hands of the Obama administration, unable to decide what to do in Egypt until it was too late and then behaving sluggishly and reactively. Now these just-twenty-Russians sanctions as Russia saunters into Poland's neighbour as if its as easy as hoisting a flag. Tomorrow Jo Biden's coming here to Warsaw to totally disrupt the capital's traffic with his motorcade in a symbol of US solidarity with something or other.  Make a big traffic jam, they can always manage to pull that one off. Influence international politics, that is less easy for them to demonstrate - still they got the man they backed in charge in Kiev. Pathetic show of ineptitude and apathy.
