In a statement yesterday, U.S. President Barack Obama warned Russia that "its actions in Ukraine have consequences."
Thus, he was announcing a new set of sanctions against Russian entities.
Kudos to President Obama. He's absolutely right.
In the same vein though, it begs the question(s):
When will the Cuban regime face consequences for taking and holding an American hostage since December 2009?
When will the Cuban regime face consequences for trafficking weapons to North Korea, in blatant violation of international law?
When will the Cuban regime face consequences for subverting democracy in Venezuela and coordinating its violent crackdown on peaceful opponents?
When will the Cuban regime face consequences for the dramatic rise in repression against its own peaceful opponents?
And most recently, will the Cuban regime face consequences for helping Russia intercept U.S. civilian and military communications?
For, thus far, the Cuban regime has faced few consequences.
Yet, plenty of concessions.
