The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has reported that EU leaders have been left furious after the Obama administration violated its own sanctions against Russia by placing a $750 million order for rocket engines.
European leaders are said to be baffled as to why the U.S. are going against sanctions they had forced the rest of Europe to adhere to, and which many criticized the U.S. government of being akin to a coup.
While leaving their European allies with no choice but to live with these sanctions, however, this report notes, the Obama regime, meanwhile, discovered that their military-national security space launches were about to be doomed due to their failure to build a replacement for the Russian rocket engines they had been using—and which due to their own sanctions against the Federation they could no longer buy.
Being faced, therefore, with the likelihood that their space launches would be stopped, and cost the jobs of tens-of-thousands of American workers, this report says, the Obama regime, last week, passed a secretive new law in their massive omnibus $1.1 trillion spending bill (which US Senator Rand Paul stated no one was allowed to read) exempting themselves from the very sanctions they are still making their European allies live with—and which led US Senator John McCain to angrily state:
“This is the height of hypocrisy! How can our government tell European countries and governments that they need to hold the line on maintaining sanctions on Russia, which is far harder for them to do, when we are gutting our own policy in this way?”
Agreeing with Senator McCain condemning the Obama regime for busting its own sanctions against Russia, this report continues, is the Chinese government, whose official news agency, Xinhua, stated earlier today that the sanctions against Russia do not have a significant impact on the US economy, and which is why the Obama regime is in no hurry to cancel them, thus preferring to escalate the confrontation on the European continent.
To the specific sanction-busting act committed by the Obama regime while its European allies still suffer, this report explains, was the purchase of 20 additional RD-180 rocket engines, on top of the 29 additional ones they had previously paid for—and which even though the Obama regimes announcement of this sanction-busting move didn’t publish the cost of, this report notes that at $25 million a piece, and when combined with additional plant manufacturing costs, brings this contract to $750 million.
As to how “psychotic/insane” the Obama regime has become regarding their forcing their European allies to sanction Russia has become, this report concludes, one has only to look at the Mistral-class amphibious assault ship deal signed between France and Russia—which after France cancelled this contract under pressure from the Obama regime, they had to pay back Russia a little more than $2.6 billion, well above the$1.2 billion Russia originally paid for both, and which Russia than made another $1 billion worth of profit on by selling to Egypt (who France then sold these ships to) the equipment they needed to complete these them—meaning, quite simply, that Russia made an over $2 billion profit due to Obama’s sanctions.
And though not mentioned in this MoFA report, US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump, perhaps, had it right when he recently noted about President Obama before thousands of his cheering supporters: “You ever see guys with nothing on their desk? They always fail. I don’t know what it is. I’ve seen it for years.”
