Eating words

March 12, 2014

As Vladimir Putin continues to thumb his nose at President Obama over the Ukraine crisis, I am reminded of the 2012 debate when the president made sport of Mitt Romney's statement that Russia would......

The neocons on the right would have us in another war.

I find it fascinating how much the right admires and cheers for Putin.

Ever since Vlad the queen got Obama off the hook in the Syrian debacle, Obama owes him big time. Thus, the Olympics are over for only an hour, and Putin makes his move on the Ukraine. I don't know that our right wing likes Putin, but Putin sure likes our right wing.

PAY ATTENTION please to something OUTSIDE OF OUR LITTLE RIVE VALLEY:

That Malaysian plane made a 90 degree left turn over the ocean. Computers don't make that "mistake", humans do. Thus, whatever the end of the story is, somebody in that cockpit made a left turn.

Therefore, human intervention at the minimum

Adolescence is a confusing time as these two contradicting statements show.

Putin can invade Ukraine because, as President Obama said to President Medvedev:

‘After My Election I Have More Flexibility’

"In the comments caught by the mic, Obama urged Medvedev to tell incoming Russian president Vladimir Putin to give him time: "On all these issues, but particularly missile defence, this, this can be solved – but it's important for him to give me space."

Medvedev replied: "Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you."

Obama then elaborated: "This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility."

Medvedev responded: "I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.""

With the above exchange, it makes you wonder how emboldened Putin has become in doing what he wants in the world.

President Obama's foreign policy has been a disaster, not only for the United States but also for the hopes of those who desire a more free and prosperous world.For Example:

Israel; snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq by failing to achieve a status of forces agreement (SOFA) that would help to keep Iraq out of the Iranian orbit

the muddled approach to Afghanistan

our feckless policy-or lack of policy-regarding Iranian nuclear weapons

not to mention Libya and Benghazi, as well as Syria

and finally the Russian "reset"

Putin at least made a decision and acted on it. Thats more than our President can seem to do. Obama sure does have time to push his health care plan which still leaves millions uninsured. Whats Obama going to do? Print more money and send it to Ukraine? that will help right? He is a weakling and Putin knows it and will disrespect him and the US, we are no threat to him or Russia. Thanks President Obama.

Arm chair warriors. I love it.

Nobody. Quite a fascinating mystery on MH370. I have been following it closely. Even reading newspapers from the area. Hearing theories of time warps and alien abductions to flying to North Korea. The pilot loved the 777 so much that he had a flight simulator in his house. The cell phones ringing out is even a bigger mystery. Praying for those left behind is what is needed now. It must be horrible.

So you admire him taking a stance that his own people thinks is a waste of resources. Russia own economic state is floundering and Putin is making this grand gesture in Crimea and the Ukraine. He just backdown after facing an unarmed Ukrainian army.

See:

Bush Administration's First Memo on al-Qaeda Declassified

Bill Clinton’s claim that, at the very end of his presidency, he came up with a “comprehensive” plan to destroy al Qaeda

What Clinton and his supporters called a “comprehensive” plan supposedly handed to the incoming Bush administration was a list of policy options that Clinton administration officials had not been able to agree on.

Once again more leftist twisted reasoning.

One of Obama’s stated goals was to end America’s exceptionalism in the world; that’s been one of his biggest accomplishments.

That is funny come you since libertarians don't want the US to put out fires across the world like in the Ukraine.

It is obvious that the right wants a former KGB officer like Putin as President.

Did we go through this when Alaska and Hawaii became states? How about we do something novel. If the majority of the people in Crimea want to rejoin Russia, we let them. We neither own nor control the world, even though many seem to think we should. Half here don't support financing infrastructure but want control outside the US. We will sink like a box of rocks if we don't rebuild this country before engaging in others. But then, all geopolitics is about oil, isn't it?
