Honestly, the Obama Administration are not just brain-dead, they are like the Jelly Fish – they have no brain at all. They exist simply by stupid motion – zero thought. Sanctions against Russia have only torn apart what ever administration has accomplished since Richard Nixon. These sanctions will hurt the USA economy and are more likely than not going to lead to war. Once the US economy turns down, the US will need a war to divert attention from the government with external enemies. Without such enemies, half of the government would be unemployed. Expect this to start to escalate even further. There is no hope that sanctions will do anything but create war.
