… What Strategy ?? [#Iraq Edition]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,January 8th,2017

.. His Lordship himself said that ” he has no strategy for dealing with I.S.I.L. … ”

.. how stupid can he be ? even worse , how lazy and incompetent is he ?? …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the news report …

.. according to this , the P.D.B. [the Presidential Daily Brief] has had information about I.S.I.L. for more than a year …. more than a year ! …. and they have no strategy for dealing with it ?!?! ….

.. it is beyond incompetence to consider that . They could have and should have known what could have been coming down the pike . A little bit of foresight [a speciality of diplomatic chess players] would have enlightened the ObamaCrap Administration to the possible dangers ahead ….

…One could easily get ahead of the game , if one had ” balls …. ” to make a GODDAMN Decision !! …

… 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 …

… So What Message did Putin send POTUS [#US Navy][#buzzing incidents][#guided missile destroyer]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 22nd,2016

.. he does not respect him , not one bit , at all ..

.. one national leader usually sends a message to another national leader by various actions . Those actions can be social , diplomatic , financial , or even military . In Vladimir Putin ‘ s case , this one was military . And how ..

.. recently Putin has been testing various Western nations with various moves . In essence , he is playing diplomatic chess with the West . Right now , they know that they have an extraordinarily weak King , and he can get away with just about anything ..

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

.. there is an extraordinarily dangerous problem with this : miscalculation . Putin may keep making moves , thinking that he can do whatever he wants , whenever he wants . Eventually , POTUS just might end up hitting a breaking point ,politically . If he does …

.. Wars have a habit of getting started that way …

… More Obama in Fantasyland …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 3rd,2014

.. this take is courtesy of former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton …

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

.. as Ambassador Bolton puts it , ” Obama lives in a World of Words , Vladimir Putin lives in a World of Power . ”

.. May God in Heaven Help up All …

.. from the interview segment …

“There’s nothing in the speech about understanding force and power and international affairs the way the Russians do and how they proceeded, nor anything about deterrents or dissuasion. It was almost entirely about international norms, international law, the United Nations, none of which have done a thing to stop Russians in Ukraine.”

Additionally, Bolton ripped President Obama for suggesting U.S. interests in Ukraine are minimal considering the former Soviet state’s geopolitical significance.

“I think the president is living in a world of words and Putin is living in a world of power. I mean, the president even went so far as to argue actual U.S. interests in the Ukraine are fairly minimal. What concerns us is the violation of international law. I actually think we’ve got major tangible interest in the Ukraine,” he said.

If the U.S. and Europe fail to band together in a show of force against Putin, Bolton argued, further endangers Ukraine and will encourage other hostile nations around the around to mimic Putin’s expansionist agenda.

“That weakness, that inability to show strength, I think encourages Putin in Ukraine and rest of the former Soviet Union, and encourages other adversaries in other parts of the world like China to be assertive in their behavior as well.”

… 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 !! …

… What is POTUS thinking ?

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 8th,2014

.. has he learned nothing in 5 years in office ?

.. China — China is behaving like a regional bully ; Japan and India are linking up …. potentially , both those two nations , along with South Korea . What must the ChiComs be thinking ? …
.. Russia — look at current events … Putin has to judge how far he can go , and what he can get away with … if he miscalculates , then things could get real dicey in Europe …. and the Europeans will have no one but themselves to blame for it …
.. North Korea — North Korea is crazy , but how crazy ? Would they be nuts enough to start things all over again on the Korean Peninsula ? They just might ?
.. Israel — POTUS is acting as if Israel (and Netanyahu) is the problem . He thinks that by the animal magnetism of his personality that Bibi will back down and acceed to his wishes …. Well , he is in for a big surprise . Bibi will not back down . He will call POTUS ‘ bluff . It will especially be much easier to do since POTUS is not speaking to AIPAC , it will get even the DummyCrap jewish folks attention …
