When Jamal Khashoggi was murdered at Saudi’s embassy, liberals were mad at Trump because he refused to sign tough sanctions against Saudi Arabia.
Trump knew the economic consequences of sanctioning Saudi Arabia, and forcing its allies not to buy Saudi oil.
Now Biden came into the picture and sanctioned Russia like it doesn’t exist and forced most 3rd world countries to stop buying products from Russia. Remember that Russia is the biggest country on earth with a lot of resources to disrupt the world economy.
The miscalculations by Biden made it worse considering the global economy was just recovering from COVID-19. Joe Biden was very short-sighted trying to please the left-wing liberals.
A visionary world leader would have called off the deal of Ukraine joining NATO, and stop giving them weapons (Trump did that).
Also, broker negotiations between Ukraine and Russia to prevent the war before it happened.
Even if the war did happen, it was very stupid to force developing countries from buying Russian oil, fertilizers, and cereals.
Sanctions on Russia have left a big void in the world market where the demand for certain commodities (especially food and oil) is higher than the supply. The only option is to increase the prices to reduce the demand.
Then you factor in supply chains that were disrupted by Covid plus the U.S federal reserve printing money and hiking interest rates, you get a global recession and an inflation at the same time.
between 1939 and 1945, these people fought each other, killed day and night for six years. almost sixty million people were dead by 1946. they even had factories for killing people only. Ukraine skirmishes, a few sanctions, and a few million hungry people means nothing to them. all those light skinned people are in the same WhatsApp group.
I don’t think “what will happen to 3rd world countries?” is usually a concern on the table when mzungu is making his decisions. After all they said Americans and Europeans are happy to pay high prices if it means punishing Russia. I didn’t hear them include Africans or Asians in their calculations.
