… POTUS does not Understand GeoPolitics …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 29th,2014

.. and as result , Vladimir Putin is constantly making him look like a fool on the international stage …

.. [h/t — WashingtonComPost]..
.. [link] to the ComPost ‘ s Editorial ..

.. once again , the ComPost ‘ s editorial board rips POTUS a brand new one . It seems that Obama cannot  and will not  play geopolitical chess , at least on a competitive level . He had better if he has a prayer of keeping up with Putin , who doees not have the strongest of hands …

.. Russia is not the Soviet Union . Its population , especially for such a vast nation , leave it vulnerable to others  [read : China] . Remember Tom Clancy ‘ s ” The Bear and the Dragon ? ” The ” Northern Resource Area ” referred to in the book is Siberia , especially eastern Siberia .  It is the last treasure house on  the planet . The cost of opening it up would be enormous .  However , the reqwards are even more immense …

… Ouch [Garry Kasparov ‘ s Zingers] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 26th,2014

.. this is a real zinger , especially given the source .

.. Garry , you really hit the mark ! Carter is no genius , but he does indeed look like Churchill in comparison to POTUS . Carter had a strong attachment to the pursuit of human rights , at times to his and our nation ‘ s detriment . Iran is the classic example .

.. Shah Reza Pahlavi was no choir boy . He never pretended to be one . He also had no qualms about kicking butt to keep order . His internal security service , the Savak , was ruthlessly efficient in doing its job . However , they look like a bunch of choirboys in comparison to the Mullahs of Qum and the Revolutionary Guards Corps and the Al Quds forces . Iran under the Shah was a strong U.S. ally . Iran under the Mullahs is a U.S. enemy , hot in pursuit of a nuclear weapon …

… 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 , ….

… Boy , Has He Got It Right …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 11th,2014

.. I am a fan of retired Army Lt. Colol Ralph Peters , yes , but I do not always agree with him . He is full of vim and vigor , and is usually spot on ..

.. but not always …

.. in this case , he has got it right .

.. Obama & Co. have their heads stuck up their collective rear end . They see the world as they want to see it , not as it actually is . That is a prescription for disaster …
