… What the Hell is POTUS waiting For ?!?! [#aid Kurdistan]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 24th,2016

.. the Kurdish people are our allies . They have been so for decades , throughout the Cold War , as well as all of the Persian Gulf War [both of them]…

.. now , it is their hour of need . They need aid . Their civilians need it . The PeshMerga [the Kurdish army] needs it . I am wondering …

.. [link] to the news report …

.. the Kurds are willing to fight ; they are superb fighters . The Iraqi army chickened out and fled ; the Pesh Merga is standing its ground and is fighting . They need military aid , however . They are fighting bad guys who are fighting with our captured stuff . So , for God ‘ s sake …

.. GET OFF YOUR DAMN ASS and HELP THEM , GOD DAMN IT !!!! ….

… It is Time [#to Arm Ukraine]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,November 13th,2016

.. and not just with tiddly winks ..

.. the Ukrainians are Western – leaning and economic – freedom seeking . They are working to clean up their act . While not entirely a bunch of Boy Scouts , they are also not the Devil , either . They are a free and democratic people , worthy of our support …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the editorial post ..

.. NATO should be prepared to intervene , if necessary . Short of that , we should act to give Ukraine all types of support . Moral , financial , as well as military [arms , weapons , munitions , advisers]..

… Ukraine is deserving of a Major Aid package [#US] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 7th,2016

.. yes , it is worthy of a major U.S. investment ..

.. Russia ‘ s effective domination of Ukraine [or , its seizure] would greatly affect the diplomatic balance of power on the European continent . Poland and southeastern Europe would be in danger . The Baltic nations would be effectively in an untenable position …

.. so stepping in and aiding Ukraine is substantially in the interest of the United States of America . We need to do it . We must do it ..

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

.. I am not just talking about tiddly winks . A major financial aid package is a given , especially to help Ukraine straighten out its national balance sheet ..

.. what else : ..

.. [-] military aid — including arms , weapons , and trainers …

.. [-] air to other nations — to send a signal to Russia to ” knock it off … “

… What do I think ?? [#Caroline Glick ‘ s article]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,July 4th,2016

.. I think that the Israelis should tell the Administration [the OCs] to go to hell ..

.. not only should Israel tell the OCs to kiss their A## , so should Congress ..

.. Congress pays the bills , the OCs do not . Congress should not cede one of its primary prerogatives to another branch , not now , not ever !! ..

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

.. back to the Israelis . they should also tell the OCs to go [bleep] themselves . They have the OCs by the balls . They still have significant DemoCrap support in the U.S ., no matter who controls Congress . They also have virtull unanimous GOP support on Captiol Hill . So if they want more aid , they can get it ,anytime .. and they can use it at home [in Israel] if need be ..

… Chilling !! [#Caroline Glick ‘ s piece]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 3rd,2016

.. especially given the antics that the ObamaCraps [the OCs] have pulled in order to subvert the security of the Israeli state ..

.. y ‘ all should read it ..

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

.. do the OCs want to give Israel enhanced military aid . YOu have to be kidding . The OCs would rather keep the Israelis under their collectivista thumb , than give them more money . But in this , they are actually will . But , for a price ..

.. They will not allow Israel to go around the OCs [or anyone else] to get more money from Congress . Also , the Israelis cannot do so …

.. what do you think ?? ..

… We Should Help Ukraine …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 30th,2014

.. we should send both a financial mission , in order to begin to help to straighten out their finances … we should do more …

.. we should send a military mission . We should send military aid , in the form of military trainers (advisers) in order to bring the quality of Ukraine ‘ s military up to strength . Also , advise them to begin the formation of a Marine Corps – style force in order to augment their army . We should consider selling them arms (small arms at first , bigger to come) to bring up the professional level of their military up towards NATO standards …

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]..
.. [link] to the commentary …

.. Dr. Krauthammer is right . He usually is . Doing most , if not all  , of the above would help Ukraine ‘ s spirits a  great deal . It would also send a clear signal , as well as a warning shot across the bow , to Vladimir Vladimirovich [Putin] …

… What a Chicken Move !! [CutOff of Military Aid] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 20th,2013

.. You figure that POTUS would be able to make a clear decision ,  one way or another , on anything . It seems that this dumbbell cannot ,  even if his life depended on it .

.. Evidently , the Obama administration has temporarily suspended aid to Egypt’s military while  not publicly declaring that the ouster of former President Mohammed Morsi in  July was a coup. Two  administration officials also told the publication that White House lawyers  decided the law called for temporarily restricting military aid in the event of  a coup, but did not mandate a public announcement about whether a coup had  actually taken place.

.. according to one official , “The decision  was we’re going to avoid saying it was a coup, but to stay on the safe side of  the law we are going to act as if the designation has been made for now,” “By not announcing the decision, it gives the administration the  flexibility to reverse it.”

.. for god ‘ s sake , either make the call , or do  not make the call . Do not be weak in the knees about it . Right now , the ObamaCraps are behaving like a bunch of wussies . Publicly, the ObamaCraps has indicated  that $585 million of the promised 1.3 billion in military aid for fiscal 2013 is  not officially on hold because it is not technically due to be delivered to  Egypt until the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30.

.. you folks are behaving like a bunch of idiots . Show some spine , and “grow a pair.”  Either it was a coup , or it was not . Issue a waiver , if maintaining relations with Egypt (and its regime) is important enough . The military group may not  be a bunch of choirboys or boy scouts , but they are far preferrable to the bloodthirsty religious tyranny of the Muslim Brotherhood  .
