Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I suspect the US foreign policy establishment must be really pissed off at the way the EU (and Merkel) has handled Ukraine. Total fantasist rookies, if you ask me.

Unlike the perfect execution of the Iraq and Afghanistan adventures, I suppose?

Look, the entire European establishment bought into the idea we had a post-realist world order in Europe. They didn't even have the phrase "sphere of influence" enter their heads during the trade negotiations with Ukraine last fall, because they don't think in those terms any longer. I've kept telling people for years this is totally wrong, but they needed this kind of brutal wake-up call to get it.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
