… 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 …

… What I expect — Yemen [#Saudi Arabia]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 18th,2015

.. I believe that the Saudis are going to come after the Yemenis .

.. not openly . No , they are not that stupid or foolish .

.. however , they have [I believe] many Shiite allies , even in Yemen . They obvious do not like what has happened in their country . They will want to act and return to power in Saa’na . But how ? …

… Hamas has made a Strategic Miscaculation …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 19th,2014

.. Benjamin Netanyahu is not Ariel Sharon ..

.. however , Netanyahu is also not Ehud Olmert …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intel report …

.. PM Netanyahu knows that this is only a preliminary round . Hezbollah is next . Then , Iran …

.. the question is , whether someone is going to intervene on Hamas ‘ behalf . Our Congress won’t . Obama might want to , but not with the spotlight on . He is too big a wuss …

.. Egypt is under new mgmt. . El – Sisi is an army general , like Sadat & Mubarak . He is also no wuss . After a year – plus of the Morsi ” regime , ” he understands the score . He also knows that our Congress will override Obama if he tries to cut-off Egypt …

.. ditto the Gulf nations . They are likely already in the business of constructing their nuclear programs , already . Egypt , too . They do not want to use the nukes on Israel . They can live with the Israelis . it is the radical Shiite Persians [the Mullahs in Qum , iran] that are the problem …

… What Nicholas Maduro is Counting On …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 3rd,2014

.. what can he count on ??? …

.. [-] the shameful indifference of other Latin American leaders — they have a habit of not intervening in each other ‘ s affairs . When they do , it is usually far too late …

.. [-] the dymanic moves of other foreign leaders — potentially Vladimir Putin ..

.. [-] the lack of strong action by the ObamaCraps  — so what else is new ?? …

… 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 …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 22nd,2014

.. you have got to be kidding .

.. just tiddlywink sanctions on several people . Obvious targets , who likely have withdrawn their $$ from the West ?? …

.. come on . What a Joke . How Ridiculous . The Whole World is Watching …. and is laughing at us …

.. [h/t — NationalReview]..
.. [link] to Dr. Krauthammer ‘ s commentary . I agree with him ; POTUS ‘ actions are an obscene joke …

… 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 , ….

… the Wages of Sin , the Wages of …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 12th,2014

… you can guess ??

.. it is weakness .

.. what is happening now in Eastern Europe is sick and disgusting . we look as a nation like a bunch of weak – kneed fools because of POTUS and his lack of action and lack of foresight …

.. what is  worse is that Russia could end up getting the eastern part of  Ukraine , as well . The Ukrainians may  well not want that to happen ,  but whether they can do something about it is really open to question .

.. my prayers are with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people … all of  them . They are in a tough nut  , and they are  certainly not going  to get  much help from  the Europeans , or  from  the U.S.  ….

… 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 …

… Bill O Reilly gives POTUS a lecture …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 7th,2014

.. on how to deal with Vladimir Putin .

.. I heard this live on Monday night . Bill was not the least bit friendly towards Obama , not one bit at all …

.. Bill nailed POTUS on top of his head . Hopefully , the ObamaCraps were watching , and will get the message …
