    The article is an almost year old editorial opinion.

    not necessarily by the balls. China is the only staunch ally of Russia. Granted most European countries are being cautious primarily because of their close proximity to Russia. It all depends on how Obama wants to implement these sanctions and any action should involve our European allies.

    no not by the balls because the U.S. should offer to supply the energy resources to our European allies which would strengthen our economy as well as theirs. Russia can take their oil and gas and shove it.icon_twisted.gif

    i am sure that given the glut of natural gas on our market, the U.S. could help meet the needs of Europe. Furthermore, many European countries are developing other renewable sources of energy to power their economies and meet their needs. So Russia can take their oil and gas and shove it. They are not the only country with plentiful resources. Please don't pare the U.S. with Canada because I never intended to include them in helping our European allies. With our tremendous gas and oil reserves, we could help meet the energy needs of Europe.

    like I previously said, most European countries are developing other energy sources to reduce their reliance on costly fossil fuels. Also keep in mind that there are extensive oil reserves in the North Sea and in Romania.
