The vote is in. Eastern Europe Best Corporate Choice Award. Beats Both Africa and Asia Minor. Why shall we force our pharmaceuticals to go to Africa to test their tasty new pills when there is Eastern Europe (bad food but still Europe)? Why shall we use our SEALs to get some oil or gas out of Africa when the Ukraine has some? Again cheaper and cleaner, and those Ukraine girls are internationally renowned. And the list continues.
Faced with these promising realities, President Barack Obama has chosen to act. The United States will “impose additional costs” on Russia, expanding sanctions to more senior Russian officials, individuals and a bank, the only bank NSA found to have no US shareholders.
The president has also signed a new executive order that “gives US the authority to impose sanctions not just on individuals but on key sectors of the Russian economy,” so the Russians understand, Eastern Europe has reached a new level of interest. The US corporate mafia likes it too, not only its Russian counterpart.
As this may be just the beginning of the corporate mafia war between our godfathers and the Russians, TPV promises to send its only foreign correspondent to Washington to get access to the domestic mafia headquarters.
“Expressions of support are not enough. We need action,” our mafia demanded
It is TPV’s hope that politicians will take over this nefarious development and no one has to go to the mattress.
