Russian President Vladimir Putin (Reuters) Related News Isolating Russia like Iran or North Korea is not a threat the US can make good on THE United States has once again twisted itself into a rhetorical pretzel As when it threatened military action against Syria if a “red line” was crossed the Obama administration’s rhetoric about Russia and Ukraine goes far beyond what it will be willing and able to enforce Earlier this month President Obama warned that America would “isolate Russia” if it grabbed more land and [Wednesday] he suggested that more sanctions were possible Likewise Secretary of State John Kerry said the Group of 7 nations were “prepared to go to the hilt” in order to isolate Russia But Washington’s rhetoric is dangerously excessive for three main reasons: Ukraine is far more important to Vladimir V Putin than it is to America; it will be hard for the United States and Europe to make good on their threats of crippling sanctions; and other countries could ultimately defang them First the US needs to see the Ukraine crisis from Russia’s viewpoint Threats from America and Europe will never be the determining factor in Putin’s decision-making Ukraine is Russia’s single biggest national security issue beyond its borders and Putin’s policy including whether to seize more of Ukraine will be informed overwhelmingly by national security interests not near-term economics Furthermore Russia has provided Ukraine with some $200-$300 billion in natural gas subsidies since 1991 With an anti-Russian government in Ukraine Moscow is likely to stop these subsidies lifting a major economic burden just as the West tries to squeeze it financially Second if Russia pushes farther into Ukraine America’s attempt at tougher Iran-style sanctions coordinated with allies will ultimately fail Indeed if Putin pursues a broader military campaign a similarly robust response from both America and Europe is unlikely Russia’s energy exports its commercial power and its sheer size make the costs of ignoring it prohibitively high for Europe Despite the Group of 7’s recent exclusion of Russia the Europeans don’t want to go to extremes And finally even if America seeks stringent sanctions against Russia other nations will ignore them and offset any damage they cause India absolutely refuses to treat Russia like a rogue state More important China will not observe such sanctions The fundamental problem is that the Obama administration doesn’t want to bear the costs associated with an active foreign policy That’s understandable A December Pew poll revealed the lowest level of public support for an active American foreign policy since 1964 This domestic pressure was on display in Syria Obama’s error was not that he backed away from military action and accepted Russia’s proposal to rid Syria of chemical weapons The mistake was that he drew a red line that would have been more costly to back up than the US was willing to tolerate America lost credibility internationally for failing to make good on its threat Unfortunately the Obama administration is repeating this mistake in Ukraine When Russia proceeded with the annexation of Crimea the US and Europe responded with punitive measures that had some economic impact But they did not by any means “go to the hilt” Instead the Americans and Europeans drew an even deeper line in the sand issuing empty threats of sweeping sanctions if Russia tried to grab more territory in Ukraine Such sharp rhetoric from the West could push Putin to be even more aggressive That’s because he does not believe that the West would ever treat Russia like Iran and implement robust sanctions that would cut off vast areas of Russia’s economy from the West As Putin recently explained in a globalised world “it’s possible to damage each other — but this would be mutual damage” “Isolating Russia” as if it were Iran or North Korea isn’t a threat America can feasibly make good on Just because Putin is acting like the leader of a rogue state his country cannot be considered as such Russia boasts the world’s eighth-largest economy Given the exposure of American corporations to Russia there would be serious pushback from the private sector if Obama tried to relegate Russia to rogue-state status The Obama administration needs to preach what it will ultimately practise Otherwise Washington’s credibility will erode further as it walks back its words A more hard-line response is not the answer The Obama administration should focus on supporting Kiev rather than punishing Moscow That means using its leverage with Europe to ensure that this support sticks and that Ukraine’s new government does nothing to provoke an extreme response This will require an acknowledgement of Russia’s core interests and America’s limitations — and an end to empty threats Ian Bremmer is president of Eurasia Group and a global research professor at New York University The

NewsLondon: New British foreign minister Boris Johnson vowed to defend the country’s sovereignty of Gibraltar whose future was thrown into question after Britain voted to leave the European Union "The people of Gibraltar have repeatedly and overwhelmingly expressed their wish to remain under British sovereignty and we will respect their wishes" Johnson said following a meeting with Gibraltar Chief Minister Fabian Picardo "I reassured him (Picardo) of both our steadfast commitment to Gibraltar and our intention to fully involve Gibraltar in discussions on our future relationship with the EU" A file photo of Boris Johnson PTI The tiny rocky outcrop on Spain’s southern tip has long been the subject of an acrimonious sovereignty row between London and Madrid which wants Gibraltar back after it was ceded to Britain in 1713 Immediately following Britain’s vote last month to quit the EU Spain said the "Spanish flag is much closer to the Rock" Many of the 33000 inhabitants of the Rock are now worried that it will be at the mercy of Madrid without the protection of the EU which has had to intervene in the past to ease rows between the two particularly over the flashpoint border crossing Gibraltar is also concerned about its flaourishing economy which depends in large part on its access to the EU’s single market Johnson pledged that the government "will not enter into any process of sovereignty negotiations with which Gibraltar is not content "We will continue to take whatever action is necessary to safeguard Gibraltar its people and its economy including maintaining a well-functioning Gibraltar-Spain Border" he said in a Foreign Office statement Suva (Fiji): A terrifying tropical cyclone which smashed into Vanuatu in the South Pacific wreaked widespread devastation

place after Super Cyclone Pam a maximum category five storm slammed directly into the island country late Friday with gusts up to 320 kilometres (200 miles) an hour AFP image The UN had unconfirmed reports of 44 people dead in one province and said late Saturday that there was no clear number of deaths or injuries but that the impact of the cyclone had been "catastrophic" "A disaster of this magnitude has not been experienced by Vanuatu in recent history — particularly in terms of the reach of the potential damage and the ferocity of the storm" said Sune Gudnitz who heads the United

and coordination team expected to arrive late Sunday "While it is too early to say for certain early reports are indicating that this weather disaster could potentially be one of the worst in Pacific history" UNICEF New Zealand’s executive director Vivien Maidaborn said in a statement "The sheer force of the storm combined with communities just not set up to withstand it could have devastating results for thousands across the region" Aurelia Balpe head of the Pacific regional office of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) said there were unconfirmed reports of casualties in the capital Port Vila But they had greater fears for outlying southern islands home to more than 33000 people where communication had been cut "We are starting to get a picture from Port Vila but there’s nothing from the south" she told AFP from Suva "We are very worried just because there are less permanent structures in that part of the country There’s probably less infrastructure to be evacuated to it’s a less developed part of the country" Residents of Port Vila spent the night hunkering down as the terrifying storm raged waking to find trees had been uprooted homes destroyed and areas flooded "The scene here this morning is complete devastation — houses are destroyed trees are down roads are blocked and people are wandering the streets looking for help" said Save the Children’s Tom Skirrow UNICEF spokeswoman Alice Clements described the cyclone as "15-30 minutes of absolute terror" for "everybody in this country" as it passed over Care
