    Joke based on Holbert thinking Russians are still Communists. Or that the oligarchs only invest locally. Or something.

    No appearance by Obama at least. I wonder if Murdoch’s written permission is required for such a coherent leap into the world at large?

    You can make light of the sanctions but after this episode, the EU will probably work to drastically cut their dependence upon the Russian economy. I can’t see China trusting them much either. It will take a few years but Russia’s economy is rather shaky and dependent upon oil product sales and western financial markets. The resurgence of a cold war mentality may end up being sinking their economy.

    How do you put sanctions on an economy that is mostly a black market run by corruption? It’s like the US saying they are putting sanctions on the Mexican drug cartels….

    That’s right because Putin has already proved he can do it.

    Actually the joke is based off the fact that Siberia is cold. Which it is.

    I wish we could know the actual history of that account. I bet his top picks are My Fair Lady, the complete Love Boat, and Chuck Norris films.

    To be fair, not everything in Russia is blackmarket. And I believe I read on Reuters that their markets had tumbled some once they invaded Crimea. Sanctions will probably have some effect. I just doubt it will be as awe inspiring as some think they will.
