Goodbye empire? US sanctions are failing in the face of multipolarity — Felix Livshitz

Published by the Council on Foreign Relations NGO, Foreign Affairs provides space for officials within the US military industrial complex to communicate with one another on matters they believe to be of the utmost significance. Therefore, it is important to pay attention when the magazine makes major pronouncements on any issue.

It recently published an appraisal of US sanctions – the conclusion being that they are increasingly ineffective, have prompted Beijing and Moscow to create alternative global financial structures to insulate themselves and others from punitive actions, and that Washington and its acolytes will no longer be able to force countries to do their bidding, let alone destroy dissenting states, through such measures in the very near future.

The sanctions have accomplished their mission, which was to seduce Europe into going on a suicidal hunger strike by boycotting cheap and abundant Russian energy.

Instead, Europe has chained itself to hideously expensive American energy (especially natural gas), thus becoming Washington’s slave. No energy means no food, and no economy.

Furthermore Europe will now buy Russian oil from India and elsewhere at a dramatically increased price. The USA will use financial tricks to control this market too.

The Ukraine circus is merely pretext for this trick. So is the ridiculous narrative about “Russia suffering from the sanctions.”

The destruction of Nord Stream II was the final act in this power play.

Washington's warmongers view Ukrainians as lemmings.
