  • Europe will talk tough until winter, when they need Russian gas to heat their homes…

      Absolutely correct sir!

    • Corlyss

      How tough can any talk, by them or us, be when the noise is sound and fury signifying nothing? Tough talk is tough only if it is believable.

    • Boritz

      You’re generous to attribute to them two months of pseudo-backbone.

    “Unfortunately it appears that Putin understands just how real Europe’s divisions are.”

    Heh. 🙂

  • Duperray

    Europe is not OK to risk long term Russi economic lonks destruction (perhaps also war) for the sake of american who care only their bank account.
    Please Dems, remove your tainted eye glasses, forget old fahion demoniacs, let Republicans lead US foreign policy towards the real dangers. This is the America we respect.

    • Breif2

      I have now seen the light.

    • Corlyss

      Dems are perfect. They believe they have never in their existence made a mistake in policy, not even the 300+ years of their sponsorship of slavery and Jim Crow. Indeed they have managed, in one of the most spectacular slights of hand ever, to have convinced entire generations that in fact Republicans were the authors and the beneficiaries of those dark and unhappy practices.

    How much LNG can we export to Europe? How soon? Isn’t that the only way you get a “bold” Europe?

    • Corlyss

      I’m not sure we export any LNG at this time. The reason I suspect we don’t, but I could be wrong, is I’ve heard dire reports of envirothugs plans to sue, and sue, and keep suing, to prevent export.

      • FriendlyGoat

        I think they’re more concerned with exporting oil and light oil.

    Europe is toothless.
