That's what my gut is telling me, but we should be vigilant and start coming up with a plan to reduce Europe's dependence on Russian oil and gas.
That is going to take months if not years. Something tells me in a few months every one will get back to business as usual with Russia. Its too powerful a country and a major world player for the West to blacklist for long. And Crimea? It will be forgotten just like Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia are that do not a rate mention in the headlines nowadays.
“we should be vigilant and start coming up with a plan to reduce Europe’s dependence on Russian oil and gas.”
Why should we give a crap about Europe’s dependence on Russian oil and gas? Don’t we have plenty of problems of our own to worry about?
