Tit for Tat

A hand x-rayedNormally, once the government of the United States embarks on a course of sanctions it's almost impossible to remove the sanctions short of complete capitulation by the target. Normally, however, the target is some small, relatively impotent state that the U.S. is happy to slap around until they see things our way. Given that Russia is not at all a typical specimen things just might work out differently. But make no mistake about it: the U.S. is taking an extremely serious step. A major escalation. Expect an unfriendly Russian response, possibly to include the recall of Russia's Ambassador to Washington, the forced deportation (declaring them persona non grata) of a group of U.S. diplomats from Moscow, and various Russian military mobilizations. Ukraine is quickly becoming, as Steve Cohen warned so presciently, the front line of a new Cold War.
