Russia's Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe.He then goes on in his typical style of saying things that can be interpreted in many different ways, but he certainly hints that he is in favor of freezing Russian assets:
The international banking system effectively squeezed Iran. Does Putin really desire the opprobrium of the civilized world? Is salvaging some nostalgic conception of Soviet hegemony worth the ostricization and calumny of becoming the new Iran?Nostalgic conception of Soviet hegemony? Does Rand have any idea what is going on in Ukraine?? Russia's only warm water port for its navy is in Crimea, for which it has a legitimate multi-year lease? (SEE Russia allowed to have 25,000 troops in Crimea since 1999... & other facts you may not know) Doesn't it appear that Russia is attempting to protect this strategic outpost rather than spreading Soviet hegemony? And don't forget, it is the U.S. that was caught red-handed plotting the coup in the Ukraine. (SEE: An Important Second Listen to the "F--k the EU" Ukraine Recording)
The U.S. really has no business interfering in disputes 5,000 miles from its border. As the 2016 presidential gets closer, I always suspected that Rand would become more of an interventionist but, his aggressive, globalist tone with regard to the Ukraine crisis is truly shocking.
