    they are a really bad idea. We live in a totally interconnected world and Russia is one of the G8 nations. The world is not what it was, and our influence is waning. Europe will not institute any sanctions. The East is a massive market for energy. China is perhaps the largest consumer of energy as they also are the largest emitters of CO2. More new cars have been sold in China over the last four years than in the US. This is a global market and Russia is the second largest producer of oil, of which they consume only 25% domestically.

    Can we stand on any great principe on this? I doubt it. I have read the news from the Russian side, Europe and the US and I see competing truths, all of them suspect. Get over it, Crimea is now part of Russia and it doesn't foretell of a resurected Soviet empire.
