Mattis asked to make "three exceptions" in anti-Russian sanctions

54
The head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, who in the United States is called "Mad Dog", acted as a "good cop" (in this case, a military man). The US Secretary of Defense said that US lawmakers should not block arms trade with those countries that continue to buy weapon from Russia. According to Mattis, now the countries trading in the arms market with the Russian Federation fall under American sanctions, and therefore are deprived of the opportunity to buy weapons from the United States.


At least three countries would be “allowed” to conclude contracts with American manufacturers, even if these countries buy weapons from Russian companies that have fallen under American sanctions. That’s how Mattis thinks and calls on congressmen to introduce relief measures for three countries: India, Vietnam and Indonesia.

Mattis:
These countries are focused on the Russian market. They have a lot of Russian weapons. But they really want to buy weapons from us. Why do we have to use the CAATSA sanctions regime against them?


Mattis asked to make "three exceptions" in anti-Russian sanctions


Recall that earlier in the Ministry of Defense of India expressed claims to the United States over the fact that they put pressure on New Delhi with sanctions from the CAATSA regime, which "cannot comply with the spirit of partnership." Due to the fact that the United States is very eager to impose F-35 on India, the statement of Mattis is understandable.

    But how did the leadership of Russia respond to the latest American sanctions, whined miserably, wiped it off and threatened the adversary with a finger ???

      laughing That's just the point, anti-sanctions have not yet been introduced, and the Pindos have already howled from their own sanctions.

          And how did the Russian leadership respond to recent US sanctions

          The official staff was inflated by creating a new department! Which will not create counter-sanctions, but will be engaged in supporting the Russian business. Although they have been doing this for a long time, having created many plazas and officials, spending a lot of money ... Apparently, their appetites are growing!
          Here this department was called "antifak" ...

              Brother, have you heard anything about preparing public opinion? It’s the same as in a discount store: at first the worst option is offered, and then they accept, in comparison with that, a more acceptable one.
              Volodya, did you notice that everyone from the government goes straight to liberal-Westerners? A strange trend, as if reborn again ... What then did they do on the ground? What are the current ones doing? It seems they speak beautifully, but in reality? Then it erupts - "there is no money, but you hold on" ... After all, no one hates him ... But with whom did he come? Who moved him to the presidency? And who is holding it now? Brings evil thoughts, forebodings ...

          Here is a piece from there:
          France-led efforts underscore the growing European concern over the consequences that sanctions may have for key European sectors - from cars to aircraft

          Here's more:

          The moment chosen for the announcement of the change in sanctions hints that the Trump administration was under pressure, most likely, from European and American buyers of Rusal aluminum, as well as commodity exchanges

          Is it enough?

It is clear that Russia has significantly fewer opportunities for imposing sanctions than the global hegemon, it is necessary to answer unconventionally, but it is sensitive, for some reason, the sanctions were lifted against Rusal, do not know why?

      This is not a circus. This is pragmatism and calculation. It’s just that the countries listed are moving smoothly to Western weapons. Why should the Americans push them away? All of these countries have China as their main likely adversary. Which naturally brings them closer to America. In addition, India understands that in the event of a conflict with China, at least China will strictly monitor Russia's neutrality, i.e. refusal to supply components, spare parts of India.
