About the Event:
While wars have historically been fought with soldiers and guns, the sole superpower has realized its monopoly ability to wage financial war through sanctions and embargoes against its perceived enemies around the world — Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Russia, Syria, and Gaza. How and why does the United States alone exercise this extraterritorial power to such devastating effect?
