Russian authorities order closure of the Anglo-American School of Moscow in response to sanctions, US official says. cnn.it/2hzURR3
The recent sanctions of Obama threaten world peace and harmony and invite retaliation.
Obama began by sanctioning Russia for annexing Crimea. But there was a vote in Crimea and the people voted to join Russia. And polls support the result. OTOH, Israel has been annexing Arab land since 1948 and the Americans have not sanctioned Israel. I haven’t heard of any vote by Arabs in the annexed regions where they agreed to be under the control of Israel?
Anyone familiar with behavior modification knows that consequences should be immediate and specific to the behavior you want to change. Obama should have responded to this 6-9 months ago. Doing it now feels like he’s just trying to stir the pot before he exits the stage.
