EU gives Russia new sanctions ultimatum – Yahoo News

Brussels (AFP) – European Union leaders on Sunday gave Russia a week to reverse course in Ukraine or face a new round of sanctions as Kiev warned it was on the brink of “full-scale war” with Moscow.

What now?  The EU will strike Putin from its Christmas card list?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. No, knocking “Pooty-Poot” off the card list is a later stage of “sanctions” – first comes “unfriending” on Fakebook; then a series of increasingly “strongly-worded” Twitters, or Chirps, or whatever that thing is that gets done in only a limited number of characters; then another round – or perhaps two, or several – of “referrals” and/or “commentaries” at the U(seless).N(atterers. –

    Deletion from card lists and conference invites and such is all part of a much later stage in such “diplomatic dip-shittery”…

    (I know, hard to keep all this finger-waving and foot-shuffling in correct order – or ordure – that’s why it takes years of “upper-level” edjumacationing and even more years of “professional diplomacying” experience to know just how to drag things like this out sufficiently until all-out warfare takes over…)
