Obama is asking other nations to give up their nuclear weapons just like Clinton had the Ukraine give up their weapons in exchange for a pact that Europe and America would protect their sovereignty. Wonder how they feel about that after the last month?
End wars, don’t win them! Peace through Weakness! Just being more flexible with Putin!

A few days ago, Obama answered some questions in the Netherlands, while at a Nuclear Summit with other world leaders. He bristled at a question about Romney being right two years ago about Russia/Putin. He poked the BEAR. Called Russia a “regional” threat, belittled Putin and Russia for their actions in taking Crimea. So now, Russia/Putin must respond to prove they are not indeed a regional power. So will their next move be courtesy of Obama and his poking.
Regional is questionable. Syria is not near Russia. Iran is not in Russia’s region. Europe is not Russia’s region. Putin and Russia play a big role in all these issues so they aren’t just a regional threat.

Kerry acts like he doesn’t know anything about the Hillary Reset Button with Russia.
Now, Hillary starts talking about the Ukraine and pretty much distances herself from Obama, the Weak.
Obama just can’t figure out what exactly is going on. So much for being such a smart guy. I guess as soon as he figures out Putin and Russia, he can devote a little time to Iran/Syria/North Korea. Where is his subject matter expert, VP Joe Biden?

The State Department is having a rapper over to speak to the ranks of diplomats about Rap and Hip Hop. What a waste of time, money, and effort. What bullshit! Go ahead, waste your time.
Next time you are dealing with despots like Assad and Putin, just consider what you learned in this fascinating interview promoted by the State Department. I am sure it will help keep Iran nuclear free. I am certainly convinced that it will stack the deck against the ever stronger Putin. Further, I am sure that it will make dealings in deepest, darkest Africa so much better for having a greater understanding of the black experience in our inner cities. I bet this is just the “think outside the box” kinda thing that will finally allow Israel and Palestinians to work it all out somehow? How will this help anything? It certainly won’t bring back the 4 killed in Benghazi who didn’t have enough security while the State Department promoted electric cars in Austria at a great expense.
The world will laugh in John Kerry’s recently remodeled face. Mission out of control. Fire the person who thinks this is how to upgrade diplomats. Or maybe if the rapper raised some money for Obama, he can be Ambassador to some great African country like Kenya.

With less than 2 weeks to go, Syria has only given up less than 5% of their chemical weapons in the agreement with Kerry/Obama. They still have 95% to give over for destruction. The State Department admits that Syria/Assad is stalling and yanking their chain, with the backing of Putin/Russia. So Obama is back to square one, weaker than before, having rubbed out his red line when he turned in cowardice and sought a diplomatic option they knew wouldn’t work when Kerry misspoke at a meeting with the Russians. Iran has watched how this is done. Make a diplomatic deal, don’t follow thru, cook up a bomb and deposit it on Israel all while Obama does a song and dance about how he won’t let Iran go nuclear.
Putin – Stronger
Assad – Stronger, still in power, and he lied about how much chemical weapons he actually has
Iran – Stronger and disputing all the claims of Obama about their deal that we can’t read. (Why is the deal secret?)
Obama – Arrogant, Secretive (on Iran deal), and much Weaker. His half-brother wants Israel wiped off the face of the earth (the scarf incident) and I think he would be just fine if the Islamic Republic of Iran (he calls them this all the time) got the bomb.

Obama is loudly pounding his chest and saber-rattling over the second gas attack attributed to Bashar Assad in Syria. Film and photos make it impossible to ignore like the last time Assad did this a few months back. So for more than a week, the noise will echo in the news and press rooms. Obama now looks weak. He has to do something, but China, Iran, and Russia tell him not to. Obama talks about a coalition and the UN. But he looks too weak. He will have to do something. Look for more saber-rattling for a while. A few phone calls will be made 24 hrs prior to a strategic strike. Damage will be done to some installation, but there won’t be any or many bodies since the Administration will leak the attack. Obama may even make a prime-time appearance to announce the attack. With a great deal of luck, Assad won’t line up sheet wrapped bodies, Russia’s Putin (the bored student) will hopefully not do anything but play with the Reset Button, China won’t do anything but squawk, and maybe Obama doesn’t look like an idiot. Or maybe Iran and Syria nuke Israel. What a mess. Can’t blame it on Bush. Obama drew the red line, not Bush.

After some press of Col. Khadafi killing some of his people came to our TVs, Obama jumped into what he thought would be a war of a few weeks. Then it took much longer. Case closed (until 9/11 last year and the assassination of the American Ambassador). The argument was we had to fix this because innocents were dying.
Then comes Syria. Lots of innocents dying. Now somewhere around 95,000. But we didn’t do the same thing. Now, Obama tells us he knows so much that we don’t so we can’t really understand it. Why don’t you teach us, O Wise Professor? We get that it is complicated.
Here is how it went down:
Assad “the Reformer” (according to Hillary) starts killing his own people, but we just got out from under that Libya intervention and Obama has a campaign to be re-elected, so lets not do anything. We’ll just watch. And while Obama is running for re-election, the world re-labels this a “civil war”. Another really good reason to do nothing. Obama, in order to look really bad-ass tells us all that chemical weapons is a game changer. Fiddles around even after re-election and tells us the game changer is not in what he will do, but rather in his “calculus”. I guess nobody told him there would be math. Predictions all throughout of Assad’s last days, or only weeks away from losing. So now, Obama has not been consistent, has re-labeled, has dared Assad to cross a red line and then ignored it when he did, and has waited so long to do so little that it is now a proxy war with Russia and Iran. Yes, it is really complicated now. Not near as complicated when it began, but Obama was running for re-election, so we all had to wait.
Meanwhile, we may have 4500 troops on the Syria border. Yes, it is all really complicated. Obama has dodged and weaved, placated and ignored the situation into a real mess. No good options. But don’t tell us it is just to complicated for our simple-minded selves. The Administration tells us they have a NEW POLICY of providing small arms, and then Obama denies that it is a NEW POLICY.
Shouldn’t the Civil War be re-labeled since Russia, Hezbollah, and Iran are fighting the Rebels (with strong links to Al Qaeda) that we sorta support and sorta arm. Way to go with that really smart diplomacy and that keen mind, President Nobel Peace Prize.

Now that Obama has dithered for so long, announcement today that we are sending some equipment into Syria. Obama has finally decided that his red line has been crossed.
Why has Obama waited until 93,000 have been killed? Because of Libya. He waltzed into Libya, sent weapons to Libya, and got an American Ambassador and 3 others killed. Libya took too long and didn’t stay fixed.
So now, he has to do something. Now that Russia, Hezbollah, and Iran are backing up Asad. Great move, Pres. Obama. That is some real bravery.
While I note that is no good options in Syria, Obama has taken a bad thing and bungled it mightily.

The Wall Street Journal weeked edition reports:
“Russia withheld a crucial piece of information from the U.S. before the Boston bombings, U.S. officials say,bolstering a concern that distrust between the two governments erased an opportunity to avert the disaster.”
How can there be any distrust? Hillary reset the relationship and was (according to Dems) the best Sec. of State Evah.
Last week, Putin kept Sec. of State John Kerry cooling his heels for three hours before meeting with him. Perhaps Kerry needs to send a stupid Staples button to Putin.
Sen. Feinstein is concerned that Hillary was mentioned too much in the Benghazi hearings this week. Evidently this is not to be allowed as Hillary is a great person, the Best Secretary of State Evah, and she might run for President. Therefore, we cannot talk about her in regards to Benghazi.
Feinstein is evidently not concerned that Hillary’s minions gutted the talking points and pushed the bogus video story. As Hillary likes to say “What does it matter?”
