.. Putin is the one who really deserves that Nobel Peace Prize ..

.. In one of the most deft diplomatic maneuvers of all time , Vladimir Putin has saved the world from near-certain disaster. He did

so without the egoistical , narcissistic , and incompetent POTUS . or his fair haired SecState JohnBoy . Vlad played the diplomatic chessboard with the skill of an international grand chessmaster .

.. Those two (POTUS & JohnBoy) were so clueless , they did not even realize they had been played to a tee . They did so  , even realizing they had been offered a way out of the mess they’d created.

.. Secretary JohnBoy Kerry made an off-hand comment that the only way an American attack would be called off is if the Syrians turn over all their chemical weapons to an international body. Then he added, “but that isn’t going to happen.” The words were hardly out of his mouth when Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov essentially said, “we can live with that,” and the Syrian Foreign Minister chimed in with “we can, too.”

.. It tells you how stupid and clueless Foggy Bottom is when they come up with a response that is even worse . Meanwhile, State dismissed it, saying Kerry didn’t really mean what he said . JohnBoy said that it was just a “rhetorical” answer to a hypothetical question . It was as if Team Obama couldn’t take “yes” for an answer.

.. So, in stepped Miz Hillary . She ended up looking like the only adult in a room full of diplomatic kids . Hillary said that the Kerry Proposal made sense.

Well, that got POTUS ‘ attention ! The president, never one to let a crisis go to waste, told journalists that the proposal was something he and Putin had discussed at the G-20 Summit last week.

.. WRONG !

.. Does anyone really think that Obama is capable of such strategic insight ? i do not !

.. The fact is , POTUS seemed headed for an attack on Syria that no one wanted and few thought would succeed. Most thought it would only end in disaster, either with the U.S. drawn into an attack/retaliation cycle of escalation that could go on for years and spread into a regional war, or result in the overthrow of President Assad by an Al Qaeda affiliated rebels.

.. Vlad would have loved to see the U.S. stuck in another Middle East mess . However , this one is right on Israel ‘ s doorstep . While the Russians may have toyed with the idea of letting American get bogged down in yet another losing Middle East war, they didn’t want to risk a war (with Israeli retaliation) that could pull them into the maelstrom . They could potentially lose control of the Assad government to radical Sunni jihadists.

So Putin stepped in and threw Obama a lifeline.

.. Putin is the real chessmaster here . He has a fairly good idea of what strategic thinking is , and how to use it . Obama ? Hardly !

..Te world knows that Vladimir Putin is the one who really deserves that Nobel Peace Prize.

It turns out that leading from behind left a big opening up front. Putin stepped right in. And Obama still hasn’t figured it out. He cannot , because he has no idea what is going on , or why . Duhhh!!
