If we're not going to fight a war over Crimea and if Russia won't release it over mere sanctions, then are we planning on just keeping the sanctions on Russia for the next 70 years or is it time to move on, drop the sanctions, and trade with Russia again? The whole point of the sanctions was to force Russia to release Crimea. It hasn't and it won't unless we put boots on the ground. Given its nuclear capability, we probably won't put boots on the ground. So what is the end game?
