On September 13, U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry threatened to impose sanctions on our ally over the construction of an underwater natural-gas pipeline between Russia and Germany, known as Nord Stream 2.
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.
Any indications that Washington would be moderate with their use of economic sanctions is quickly vanishing, and in return much of the globe is rebelling against U.S. hegemony.
Let's start with Europe.
Since Washington doesn't do diplomacy anymore, we only have two tools left: a) sanctions, and b) military force.
It appears that sanctions will soon be a tool of the past, which means that our violent foreign policy will become even more violent.
Take for example, Nord Stream 2.
