Yes, because we should be improving relations with Russia not damaging them.

Oh definitely. Haven't you heard about tensions in the pacific? Economic sanctions are a typical way to make a country do what you want without going to war

Well, that and the fact that Putin and his oligarchs embezzle tons of money, they only really produce weapons and gas/oil, and they have a history of rejecting western ideas (like democracy and free markets) since the 14th century. Add in the fact they are very oppressed and aren't allowed/don't know the same basic freedoms we have.

Actually the latest economic data shows the numbers have actually got better! I just saw them last week. I wish I remembered the details but they said there's a bit of light at the end of the tunnel.

What do you think we should do?
