Russia's supposed transgressions are just that, "supposed". They are either not in evidence or not transgressions. There is no meaningful evidence of Russian meddling in our elections and no evidence of any kind that Russia affected the outcomes. As to Russia's reincorporating the Crimea into the Russian state, while this was in violation of international law, it was justified as a response to an act of war by the United States as it engineered a violent coup d'etat in The Ukraine. Russia had to act in self defense by securing its Black Sea flank and protecting it big naval installation in the Crimea. This annexation was bloodless and favored by an overwhelming majority of people in the Crimea which has been part of the Russian state for over 300 years. The Crimea was transferred to the Ukraine around 1950 by Stalin for administrative reasons but it has always been Russian. We threaten Russia all the time. They do not threaten us or our allies. Increased sanctions against Iran and North Korea are also a bad idea which will only increase tension in the world and promote further hostility; and there is no specific reason to impose further sanctions on either of them.
