Why sanctions and strategic ambiguity won't work

I joined Pelle Neroth-Taylor again on his show on TNT Radio Live, to talk about the effectiveness of sanctions and recent pronouncements by President Macron on deploying NATO troops to Ukraine. I argue again that sanctions against Russia have been an ineffective alternative to either making peace or making war with Russia. On Macron's recent statements about deploying NATO troops to Ukraine, I opine that only a more substantive threat of NATO deployment would alter the direction of the war which, at this stage, Ukraine seems unable to win on its own. But that a far less risky course would be to strike for peace. You can find my interview from 37:37 in the video.
