Do you actually have to send spies to do that. Dirty work. well no no. no no. No that can now be done with your oligarchs but what we're seeing is the biden administration. I suspect we'll go after individual sanctions. Then they're gonna escalate it and they will quietly be implementing implementing a series of sanctions. You do it incrementally so that you can go to another country that might be reticent and bring them on board we're not taking their executive jets. Those science will still be purchased in needs every morning and flown back to moscow. And they were like okay. Well you know that's a big source of croissant sales in marseilles. So you know and then over time. When russia keeps misbehaving they wake up one morning and they affectively have the global magnitsky act signed in another name through a series of sanctions.

There are people in the world. there's a level of money in the world that operates. I call it. The global market right the global oligarchs jeff bazo since and and guys like pasta and you know where their money talks everywhere right and they have enough vehicles and instruments the most fascinating component of this that. I found absolutely interesting since twenty.

Oligarch was destroying the months. That's noor okay. That means that they have so fuck bought their way into the system that they could actually try to get restitution like their elicit it'd be like pablo escobar.
