America Can Loosen Europe’s Russian Energy Noose

March 8, 2022 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ Western Europe’s self-inflicted abandonment of its own energy resources resulting in dependence on Russian oil seems to generally follow Lenin’s playbook when he reportedly quipped that “capitalists will sell us the rope by which we hang them.” The main editorial clarification to add here, is that applies most directly to the […]
