… Would Vlad the Imperialist be That Crazy ?? [#attacking Ukraine]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 1st,2016

.. even given the political chaos in Kiev , Ukraine ‘ s military has proven to be no soft touch …

.. so far , Ukraine ‘ Army has fought very effectively and quickly to retake rebel – held lands in the east . The rebels have fought very poorly , and even the Russian – speaking areas have not exactly taken to the rebels . So what may happen next ? …

.. [link] to the blog news …

.. a good bit of the calculation comes from how Putin thinks about POTUS . The Europeans are , for the most part , very weak . They have denuded their defenses , and are also heavily dependent on Russian gas and oil . So , other than the U.K. and France , most of Europe is no big whoopee … the U.S. is another matter …

.. it is not the U.S. military that worries Putin . He knows that Russia is militarily no match for the U.S. . However , geopolitically , Obama is no match for Putin . That is the danger of miscalculation …

.. Putin has to be very careful . The danger of a miscalculation is ever – present . If he goof , there could be a war …. and military confrontation ….

… Kidnap Me [#Lack of Respect for America] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 23rd,2014

.. Bill O ‘ Reilly dropped the hammer on His Lordship (Obama) on Thursday Night ‘ s Talking Points Memo on the Factor ..

.. It is worse than That , Bill [#on His Lordship] …
.. to see it , I will provide it to you …

.. [h/t — Bill O ‘ Reilly.com ]..
.. [link] to the Talking Points Memo segment …

.. it is really worse than that , Bill .

.. Obama could not give a damn about foreign policy . Not one damn bit …

.. The only part of it that he does give a damn is where it fits in to his domestic agenda . Which has put our nation and our citizens into grave danger …

.. if an Israeli is , for example , kidnapped overseas , it happens rarely . It is because the likelihood of retaliation by the Israeli government is swift , sure , and certain ….

.. With Americans these days , it is by far the opposite . When we travel overseas these days , we go with targets on our backs . Our backs have signs attached , ones that are signed ” Kidnap Me . ” The likelihood of U.S. retaliation for the killing or kidnap of an American is constipated , non – existent , and it will not happen . That is the level and lack of respect for America these days overseas under His Lordship …

… Russia and the Crimea …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 18th,2014

.. well , the Crimeans have ” voted ” …

.. amazingly , 95 % of them voted for ” independence . ”

.. well , anyone with a brain knows what that means . the Crimea region will likely soon join Russia .

.. to me , that will not be a big shock . The question is , what will Putin do next ? and What will His Lordship do (or not do) ? …

.. one has to be very very careful . Miscalculaton can very quickly lead to confrontation , and , then eventually to War …

.. it may not even be in Europe . But , even with their military weakness , and relative economic weakness , Russia is still an adult at the ” table ” that has to be dealt with in a firm manner . Otherwise , ….

… Weakness Begets Danger [GeoPolitics]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 11th,2014

.. Today , America is projecting weakness . POTUS ’ failure to enforce his red line in Syria projected weakness. His constant talk of withdrawal and ending wars so we can focus on “nation-building here at home” projects weakness. His decision to gut the U.S. defense budget and reduce the Army to pre-World War II levels projects weakness.

.. When your adversaries believe you are weak , they are emboldened to act . What is more dangerous for all is that weakness begets miscalculation . Wars are begun that way …. Putin believes there will be no real costs for his intervention in Ukraine because there were no costs in Syria . He thinks that the Obama ” Doctrine ” is to do just enough “ not to get mocked . ” He just may well be right . If he is , then it will have consequences far beyond the Crimean Peninsula. A failure to impose costs on Russia will further embolden adversaries from Beijng to Pyongyang to Tehran — all of whom are measuring Obama’s resolve in Ukraine, just as Putin measured Obama’s resolve in Syria and found it lacking.

.. The lesson of history is clear: Weakness is provocative. And symbolic gestures and strongly worded statements are not enough . They are certainly not going to get Russian troops out of Ukraine …
