On the anniversary of NATO, Gabor Steingart, former chief editor of Handelsblatt and host of one of Germany’s highest profile politics and current affairs podcasts, sits down with Morrison & Foerster partner John Smith to talk about the U.S. sanctions regime. In the guest article “Das große Führungsproblem der Nato: USA sind unwillig, Deutschland ist unfähig (NATO‘s big leadership problem: the U.S. is unwilling, Germany is unfit)” published in Focus, Mr. Steingart recaps his conversation with Mr. Smith on his Morning Briefing Podcast, titled Happy Birthday NATO!. Mr. Smith tells Mr. Steingart that, “Sanctions are the alternative between words and war, the use of diplomatic instruments and the use of weapons.”
