American Conservative critique of Sanctions on Venezuela

Daniel Larison's writing on Venezuela may have been discussed here previously and I may have missed the discussion, but I just want to point to the humane nature of conservative communities we can relate to.

From our friends at The American Conservative:

The one nation flipping America the bird, and getting away with it

Venezuela only has one big export - oil - and almost no one willing to risk American sanctions in order to buy it. Europe won't defy us, and neither will much of Latin America.

But one nation you probably don't think about will dare to risk sanctions.

Russia sanctions aren't working

Back in 2017, the U.S. and our allies imposed "sanctions against entities supporting or investing in Russia's oil and gas pipeline networks."
The sanctions were intended to delay and hamper Russia's ability to develop various energy projects.

With that in mind, let's look at headlines from just this week.
