… Why the Self – Delusion ?!?! [#Iran Nuclear Agreement][#ObamaCraps]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,December 14th,2016

.. it depends on who you ask ?? …

.. for the ObamaCraps , they badly want diplomacy to work … even if it is an artificial creation that will not last long . It may even gain JohnBoy Kerry and his Iranian counterpart [both of them] Nobel Peace Prizes … not that these guys deserve them …

.. Henry Kissinger and Le Duc Tho [North Vietnam] both shared a Nobel in 1974 for the ” peace agreement that ended the Vietnam War , at least for the U.S. . However , it did not do so for South Vietnam . The U.S. was obligated to continue to support and advise the South Viets , but the treasonous acts of the ” Watergate babies ” in 1974 and 1975 deep – sixed that . Thus South Vietnam was finished , and the disgrace of the Paris Peace Accords was fully exposed with South Vietnam ‘ s defeat ..

.. the next thing that we will know is that there will be an expose of massive Iranian cheating , and an explosion of the nuclear variety at an undisclosed test site near Iran …

… Nice Going , POTUS [#huge Diplomatic Blunder]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 1st,2016

.. when you want to organize a meeting , you want to make sure that the people you want to attend are going to attend . In this case , that certainly is not the case …

.. POTUS wanted to have a crème-de-la-crème summit at Camp David with the Gulf Nations . Most of All , he wanted the new Saudi King , Salman , to be there . Unfortunately , most of the folks that he wanted to attend will not be there …

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. those dummies announce the summit without comfirming the attendees . That was a really bad political and diplomatic boo – boo ….

.. get the picture …

… More Concessions to Russia [#more than appeasement]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,September 28th,2016

.. no , it is worse than that ..

.. for God ‘ s Sake , you are encouraging the Russians to take more and more territory . Possibly even the whole of Ukraine ..

.. or , it could be worse . The Russkies could even make a move on the Baltic nations …

… If You Say Something , Then You Should Mean It [#George W. Bush]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 27th,2016

.. well , until now , former President Dubya has not said yankee doodle about anything [politics and / or policy] about His Lordship . Well , that has now changed …

.. Dubya made a speech to a gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition the other night . He should have realized that anything , especially that coming from the mouth of aformer President , would make news . Boy , oh boy , did it ever …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..

.. [link] to the blog article …

.. Dubya did not mince words . He feels that POTUS ‘ Iran policy is a grievous mistake . It takes President Rouhani as an actual president , when the real power lies elsewhere . Also , the idea that sanctions can ” snapback ” is hardly a realistic possibility , especially given the antics of the U.N. . It was not all that he said …

.. the title of this post is the capstone . Simply put , it means whatever comes out of your mouth , you have to stand behind it , no matter what …

… Security is Paramount these Days [#ObamaCraps]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 3rd,2016

.. in the age that we live in , our nation ‘ s security is paramount . It is not an idle subject . There are countries that are friendly to us who are not our allies . There are [more than that] countries that are adversaries , ones who are not friendly to us at all …

.. we need to do a much more than adequate job of protecting our nation ‘ s security . Intelligence , defense , and diplomacy are of paramount importance to us all …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. sooner or later , Miz Hillary needs to learn this . Right now , she does not know anything worth a wit about what our nation ‘ s security needs are . When you have that in a presidential candidate ….

… Why Russia Treats Us with Contempt [#military provocation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 19th,2016

.. why would the Russians do something so extraordinarily risky . They are making increasingly dangerous military provocations with US military units [the Air Force , the Navy , in particular] ?? ..

.. one message is being sent to Washington , D.C. . It is a clear political message being sent to the ObamaCrap Admininstration [in general] , and Barack Obama in particular . We hold you in such contempt that we do not fear you , not one bit . That is a dangerous message ..

.. another message is being sent to U.S. allies in Europe and Asia . You see the contempt with which we hold America . The U.S. will not act to defend its interests . So who will step up to defend you ..

.. [h/t — NYPost.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the big problem ? The grievous risk of miscalculation . Remember how World War II got started in Europe ? Nazi Germany miscalculated when they subdivided Poland with the Russians , and Britain and France went to war . So another world war could easily get started if we are not careful …

… johnBoy does It Again [#diplomatic gaffe]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,April 24th,2016

.. but this one is waaay worse ..

.. our so – called ” humble ” SecState , JohnBoy Kerry , was on a recent trip to the Far East . His journey included a stop at the A – Bomb memorial in Hiroshima , Japan . His stop was the first by an American SecState since W. W. II and the a – bombing of the city ..

.. why ?? ..

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. what it was to me was a revival of the OC ‘ s ” apology ” tour . In normal cases , thse antics can be ignored . But in this case , this stunt is far , far more offensive . You may ask why?/

.. it is offensive to our nation and to our veterans . The A – Bombing of Hiroshima AND Nagasaki was a strategic decision , not a tactical one . It was done in a leap of military logic in order to avoid a planned seaborne amphibious landing in the Japanese home islands . Such a move would have been made at enormous cost to both the U.S. and Japan , with around 1 million U.S. CASUALTIES , and up to 4 million and 5 million Japanese military casualties , not to speak of the civilian ones …

… POTUS Should ” Grow a Pair ” … [#illegal immigration]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 2nd,2016

.. and Mexico should pay a strong , if not severe price for being complicit in this imbroglio …

.. why ? it is abuntdanly clear that these people are not coming by boat . Maybe by airplane , to northern Mexico , but that still means that Mexico is complicit in all of this …

.. there should be a strong crackdown against Mexico and her government . No responsible government should be and / or can be complicit in the transport of other foreign nationals across their territory . Especially if the target is a nother country [namely , us] …

.. It is most definitely an unfriendly act . Some tariffs slapped on favored Mexico – located products should send an unambiguious message to Mexico City . You would not tolerate this , if you were the target . So , do you think that we are going to tolerate this , either ?? No , so knock it off . Crack the whip on the coyotes , or we will do it for you …

.. [update] — it seems that the First Wuss is (as you might expect) getting more than a little ” weak in the knees . ” He is evidently waiting to execute his so – called ” executive action ” on immigration until after the November midterm elections …. What a wimp !!

… Diplomatic Faux – Pax [#Obama in India]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 4th,2015

.. can’t this idiot do anything right , for God ‘ s sake ..

.. our relations with india are important . India is the world ‘ s largest democracy , at over 1.3 billion people . It is also , by now , a first world power . It should have a seat on the U.N. Security Counsel , but , regrettably , it does not . So , India does carry quite a bit of diplomatic weight on the international stage …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]…
.. [link] to the blog news …

.. so what does His Lordship do ? Commit a fairly significant faux pax in New Delhi while on a state visit . Nice one , stoopid ..

potus (india - chewing gum)

.. what did he do ? chew gum in public . Here in the U.S. , chewing gum in public is proper and accepted . So it is in most of the world . But in India , it is not , at least in polite company ..

.. so , once again , nice one , stooped ! …

… Astonishing — Maltreatment of Israel PM [#Bibi]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 7th,2014

.. Israel is one of our dearest friends and allies ..

.. and , yet , POTUS pisses all over them like this ..

.. [h/t — NewsmaxTV.com]..
.. [link] to the Steve Malzberg Show segment ..

.. Danny Danon is an up-and-comer . Something must have happened for Bibi to can him . I doublt that it was personal . Most likely , it was political …

.. however , letting him go releases him to talk to the media , openly . Danon knows what he can talk about , and what he cannot and should not ..

.. this is a strategic leak . Netanyahu wanted this out to let people know how POTUS acted and treated him . POTUS acted like a spoiled child , and should be ignored …

.. if necessary , Netanyahu should call Obama ‘ s bluff , and then strategically leak it . The ObamaCraps would be off – the – charts furious , but tough shit .. if the word got out that Obama tried to cut off Israel , economically or militarily , all hell would break loose . Not just in the Middle East , I can assure you of that …

.. there would be hell to pay here in the US . The House would quickly move to restore aid , and take away the President ‘ s discretion to cut it off . The House Dems would likely would be forced to go along . The Senate would likely follow suit . Dingy Harry Reid runs the place like a dictatorship , but not on this …

.. [-] update — the transcript of the phone call is , I believe , reasonably accurate . POTUS behaved like a spoiled child and an ass when supposedly ” dressing down ” PM Netanyahu . POTUS should know better , but probably does not give a damn . He hates Bibi ‘ s guts , and does not care what he thinks …

… We Were Doing What [#middle east backchannel to hamas]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 10th,2014

.. yes , you heard me right .

.. according to what I understand , the US Government has opened backchannel contacts with Hamas . Yes , that is right . A terrorist organization , dedicated to the destruction of Israel , and the mass murder of all Israelis . Our government is playing footsie with these people …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. are these people crazy , or do they hate Israel and her citizens that much ? What they are doing is madness …

… Diplomacy has to Be Serious …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 24th,2014

.. and people have to be serious about it .

.. it does not mean you need to get wound up about it all of the time . It is just that it needs people to be a great deal more upfront and more direct about it , and not screw around with it . The ObamaCraps horse around with diplomacy far , far too much , and do not take it seriously enough as they should …

… It Takes Courage …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 17th,2014

… The Eastern Part of Ukraine is Getting Dicey

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 15th,2014

.. and because of it , Europe may be at war for the first time since World War II …

.. Mad Vlad [Putin] is not kidding around . At the rate he is wanting to go , he wants to roughly reassemble the old Soviet Union , just not on the old Soviet model . Anyone with a brain knows that Communism does not work …. Been there , done that …

.. Ukraine is not a member of N.A.T.O. , but the countries that border it (including the Baltic nations) are . That creates a real headache . Especially for Poland . The Poles understand being under the Russian boot better than anyone . They have been there before . More than once …

.. Appreciate the irony , this time . The Germans , of all people , drawing a line , and guaranteeing a free Poland ‘ s security , and making France and Britain and the rest of Europe to come along . Germany , after all that  they have done to Poland , stepping up this time to draw a line . Angela Merkel has , to be honest , more ” balls ” than either Hollande [France] or Cameron [Britain] , and especially POTUS [U.S.] . She knows what may be at stake . Germany also has economically the most to lose …

… You have to Be Kidding [Iran and the U.N.] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 7th,2014

.. that Iran is a member of the United Nations , at least as the Islamic Republic , makes me want to gag …

.. the ObamaCraps playing footsie with these guys just makes it worse …

.. but this stunt the Mullahs of Qum are trying to pull is far beyond the pale …

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. it seems that these folks want to appoint a former member  of the U.S. Embassy hostage takers as their new Ambassador to the United Nations …

.. however , in order to do that , that person must enter the U.S. . So , he must get a diplomatic visa from the U.S. State Department . Normally , this is just a formality . But , with someone (even just a translator) who was involved in the taking of diplomats as hostages , and the Islamic Republic showing no sense of contrition for its actions ….

… DENY HIM THE VISA . Anyone with even a remote connection to the hostage taking has no place being in the United States for any reason , none whatsoever …

… In Order to Make the Other Guy Blink …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 2nd,2014

.. you have to make the other guy think …. and think seriously ..

.. he (or she) has to take you seriously . They cannot call your bluff . They still might do so anyway . However , they have to understand that your ” Red Line ” really means something ….

.. [h/t — NationalReview]..
.. [link] to Dr. Krauthammer ‘ s commentary …

.. miscalculations are dangerous for everyone . World War II got started that way . Adolph Hitler did not believe in the guarantees that Britain and France had extended to Poland . Hitler thought that it was a bluff , and attacked Poland . Britain and France thus went to war with Germany , and the rest , as we say , is history …

… to Be Honest , POTUS …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 28th,2014

.. nobody believes you …

.. you have no credibility on the international stage . People think that you are weak and vacillating , and cannot for saving your life to make any kind of decision , much less a criticial one .

.. to be blunt , you get believed by leading from the front , not from behind . You set policy , make a decision , and then back it up with evaluation and results . You hold people responsible for their actions , not your lack of action . Get your head out of  your collective rear , and get back in the ballgame …

.. You draw so – called ” red lines , ” and then do not back them up . So , no one will think that you are serious in most any situation , much less this one .

… Nice Point , Ollie (North) [on Russia] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 25th,2014

.. Ollie North does not speak out in public all that often . Also , he does his homework before speaking out on a subject . So , that he is getting involved in the Russia – Ukraine crisis is noteworthy …

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..
.. [link] to the interview segment …

.. Ollie is right . Not always , though , but this time . He is spot on on the Russians . The Russians just do not have any respect (no , not for our country) for our current government …

.. They think Obama is a joke . Like many people , they believe [correctly] that POTUS has his head in the clouds , and governs as if he is in fantasyland …

… It makes You Wonder …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 9th,2014

.. what planet POTUS and JohnBoy Kerry are operating on ?

.. they are on Mars , and Vladimir Putin is on Venus …

.. it would be helpful that those two learn how to play diplomatic chess . Putin and his Foreign Minister , Sergei Lavrov , are doing a masterful job of playing their hand . Theirs is not the strongest hand , but they are playing diplomatic chess like grandmasters …

.. Meanwhile , POTUS and JohnBoy are playing Checkers or even tiddlywinks . Yeech ! . Get your collective heads out of your rear ends , and get into the game , damnit !! …

… It makes You wonder [Iran & Nukes] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,January 25th,2014

.. when the iranians are running their mouth off , constantly .

.. you think that they would know better to keep their big mouths shut . Or , do they care ?

.. They probably do not care , to be honest . Considering the lack of political will in the National Command Authority [Obama] , Iran has plenty to be confident about , I think .

.. I also wonder . Who would you think is telling the truth about the nuclear agreement , Iran or the ObamaCraps ?

… A Brain Lock Foreign Policy …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 10th,2013

.. Secretary of State JohnBoy Kerry says something off-the-kuff , and then , all of a sudden , it becomes policy ? Who the hell is minding the store ?

.. It sure as hell is not POTUS . He thinks that he is smarter than everybody else , and no one can keep up with him . Well , try

Vladimir Putin - Caricature

Vladimir Putin – Caricature (Photo credit: DonkeyHotey)

again , Barack ! You are playing tiddly winks , and Vladimir Vladimirovich [Putin] is playing diplomatic chess . Guess who is winning ?

.. Putin , who else ? Vlad is no dummy . JohnBoy made a boyBlunder , and he got inside BHO ‘ s head . Putin pulled off a deft political move , making Russia more relevant on the world stage , and also making Obama look like a rank amateur , by comparison . The Aussies were right about Kevin Rudd , and I am right about BHO .

.. POTUS is an even more grandiose narcissist than Kevin Rudd ever was . What is more dangerous is that POTUS is POTUS , and does not have a clue about what he is doing on the world stage . People keep making him look like a chump , and our fellow Americans are getting tired of his act . Unfortunately , we are stuck with Obama for the next 43 months . Hopefully , he will not blunder too badly …

.. God in Heaven help us if he does . Many people will , I am afraid , get killed as a result of Obama ‘ s incompetence , both here at home , and overseas . Other nations will take note , and act accordingly …

… Your Move , Barack Obama …

… Busted !! ..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 11th,2012

…  it appears that Bashar Assad and his regime are getting real desparate …

… You might ask , why ? The government of Turkey intercepted and forced to land a Syrian Air passenger jet . One might think , whoopee – doo – dee ?!?! Well , this sucker was different . It was stuffed with military equipment and munitions . That is a very big no – no , folks . The Syrian government made a declaration that it was full of passengers . and , worse , it was coming from Russia …

… Nice going Vladimir Vladimirovich ! You got caught in the act , and got caught red handed . Real stupid move …
