    Blockading Russia? US Interior Secretary's Dangerous Threat

    Blockading Russia? US Interior Secretary's Dangerous Threat

    The US Secretary of the Interior told an audience in Pennsylvania recently that one option open to the US to slow Russian energy exports is a naval blockade. The Russian senate replied by stating the obvious: such a move would be an act of war. Why the threats and bluster? What's the endgame?

    Going by what is written here, the Interior Sec. said "option". That is not a direct threat. Sounds like the yappy mouth of someone with no real say in US foreign policy.

    That aside, blockading Russian trade seems an idiotic notion on its face, all else equal.

    The era of Klown Diplomacy is steaming along at flank speed with no peak in sight.
