The terms "wrath" and "U.S. sanctions" do not go together.

Now, "limp noodle" and "U.S. santions", those fit very well.

We really mean it this time! Starting ... now!
No, wait, not yet. Okay, Russia, you'd better do what we say or else. Starting ... now!
Aw darnit, wait a minute. There will be consequences, you know.
(What's the "or else," does anyone know?)
Starting now!

John F'in Kerrry is every bit as worthless as his boss!

Maybe even MORE worthless but that is going some!

There are economic levers the US could use to hurt Russia, but they lose most of their impact if the Europeans do not go along.

Those economic levers would hurt us too; that's the problem. We can't burn Russia economically without getting some ourselves.

I wouldn't be surprised if China called our bluff on sanctioning Russia.  Europe certainly doesn't want to sanction Russia, and China could become the world superpower if they made the US stand down, be it in public or through backchannels.

China has a long way to go before they pass us as the world superpower. It was within the last couple of years that China built their very first stealth aircraft, and I think they only recently built their first modern aircraft carrier as well. Militarily they aren't even close to us, not by a long shot. Their median standard of living is also way behind us, and the only reason they do "better" academically is because they have 4 times as many people and only give the very best and brightest the opportunity to represent the country.
