American minister: US has the right to punish other countries

The United States has the right to punish other countries for "uncivilized" behavior, using for pressure sanctions on the energy industry, reports RIA News Statement by the head of the US Department of Energy Rick Perry.

American minister: US has the right to punish other countries


Answering the question why Washington criticizes Moscow for allegedly using energy as a means of pressure on countries, despite the fact that the United States itself imposes an embargo on the export of Iranian oil, the minister said:

The answer is simple. The United States has the right to send signals to states that do not behave as civilized members of the world community that they will be punished.


According to him, there are many ways of punishment, and one of them is the energy industry.

Today, Iran’s policy is unacceptable, so Washington sent a very clear signal to the government of this country: if you don’t become a responsible member of the world community, “there will be sanctions, there will be consequences,” Perry said.

Recall, the US authorities have repeatedly accused Moscow of using energy supplies to Europe as an instrument of pressure on third countries. Perry himself spoke about this on Thursday at a meeting with his Russian counterpart Alexander Novak.

In turn, Russia always emphasizes that the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, which Americans are so actively opposed to building, is not a political, but a purely commercial project.

            Laws are valid in both directions, since the USA can punish, so the USA itself can be punished. Why this issue is not tackled collectively with BRICS, Iran, Turkey and others ...

      Why not the elect? Are dollars not quoted anywhere? Countries do not want to take US loans? Where do countries elites want to study? Where do you want to have real estate and citizenship? So why not tell others if others themselves pray in the United States? Remember our Gorbachev with his our American friends! And friend Boris and friend Bill!

      And why are they not exceptional if many of the buns of civilization come from there, and not from Ukraine, Russia and other countries? Did Afghanistan or Iraq offer many new technologies? What technologies have Libya and Syria given? Yes, the same Saudis which technologies are spreading? And who gave loans to Europe after the war? Americans help everyone! They can provide a list of countries to whom they gave loans, to whom free aid. So why blame others for what they themselves are not able to do? So Russia is asking for investment and technology? How to ask, so great country !? And if a creditor demands it, then this is not good !? Or what is the USA asking others for? Well, if he doesn’t ask, but gives, why not demand? Well, you personally, if you were giving something to anyone, what would you do yourself? Requested or demanded?

        About technology. By itself, the American people, genetic trash. Scumbag, whose ancestors were exiled to the distant mainland, so that the eyes would not callus. All breakthrough technologies are the merit of enticed scientists, either frankly stolen, and with typically Anglo-Saxon rudeness, announced by their own. One can argue about America’s help too. Because help is only the first step of expansion. At first they help you, along with the soul of your national industry. Then they express concern, then a puppet sits in the place of your president and broadcasts about American values ​​.... America is a branch of hell. America is a cancerous tumor of the earth. Everything bad and unacceptable comes from America. Carthage must be destroyed !!!!!

        It will last a long time, but it will have to compete with another currency. Now the dollar has a monopoly. Settlement in national currencies is a fiction. In reality, even Airbus in Europe sells its Airbus in dollar terms.

Except for "disapproval" we won't be able to "wave" anything here. We can, of course, try to drown the aircraft carrier for each package of sanctions, but somehow bad manners. But if we nevertheless fall out of the dollar system, then it is certainly possible to "pile up" on the ears.

    What will happen if Nord Stream-2 does not reach Germany and ends in the Kaliningrad Region, where gas storage facilities are now being built? Nothing special will happen for Russia and Gazprom, especially after the decision of the WTO arbitration, which canceled the action of the third energy package for Nord Stream-3. Gazprom can fill it at 1%, not 100%. Plus the Turkish stream, which will be built in 50. Gazprom will always be able to supply the minimum amount of gas guaranteed by long-term contracts. And the fact that beyond the norm is through Ukraine. How will this turn out for the EU? The cost of gas will increase. And the USA is not an assistant here. If the United States increases gas supplies to Europe, then Ukraine will suffer first, because First of all, a tap on the Ukrainian gas pipeline will be covered. And Ukraine will remain in full European support. But we must also develop our own gas consumption. Let's say subsidize the installation of gas equipment on cars and keep the gas price at gas stations to a minimum. The price of gasoline and diesel fuel in rubles will still grow, because The US Federal Reserve raises the cost of the dollar, raising the discount rate. Here Russia cannot do anything. Who else will suffer? I think the Stockholm arbitration. After strange decisions on the dispute between Gazprom and Naftogaz, there will be fewer appeals to arbitration.
