… the Only Reason that I.S.I.L. has the Strategic Initiative [#POTUS]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 31st,2016

.. is because Obama is a god – damn lazy ass ..

.. he does not think strategically . If he did , he just might begin to understand what kind of threat that I.S.I.L. is , and what they are trying to do …

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

.. our problem is that His Lordship does not even have a clue about what he is doing . He never has had it . If he had had some kind of executive experience , he might be different . However , he does not , and he never has had any . Anyone who says that the last 6 years is good exec experience is kidding themselves …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 29th,2016

.. maybe it will be in time ; maybe not …

.. [link] to the intel report …

.. with that size and mass of personnel in Jordan , and with more [like 20k] in Israel , and military stocks to match , and then some . it is about damn time ….

.. the Kurdish people are our allies . They have been through the decades . Even through Saddam ‘ s time in power and insanity . And the ObamaCraps come thisclose to letting them get butchered to hell . How idiotic is that ???

… Since When should our Country be Playing Footsie with the Mullahs [#Qum]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,November 24th,2016

.. it appears that we are .

.. that makes many people nervous , including me .

.. it makes you wonder , what the hell is the ObamaCrap Administration doing and thinking . Not only that , but why ? …

.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. negotiating with the Mullahs in Qum over their nuclear weapons programs is bad enough . Playing diplomatic footsie with them over other issues is worse …

… The Russians couldn’t be This Stupid [#Ukraine]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 27th,2016

.. except , this time , it would be Britain , France , and Germany guaranteeing Poland ‘ s security …

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

.. the argument is that Putin ‘ s calculations (even if nuts) would be to move with military moves against the Baltic states , the ‘ Stans , and the rest of Ukraine …

.. but with nukes ?? …

.. that would be nuts …

.. and would thrust all of us [the U.S. included] towards a nuclear abyss …

… 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 …

… Vladimir Putin is not a Chessmaster …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 16th,2014

.. but he is playing a weak hand in a very strong fashion .

.. Russia ‘ s military is sorely in need of reform . Its navy is modernizing , but needs years of investment in its surface fleet and its training regime . The Russian Air Force is easily the most modern . It has a great deal of territory to cover , but does so with a small fleet of aircraft and aircrews . It could be larger , if Russia could afford it .

.. The Russian army is still sorely in need of a major overhaul . Russia ‘ s enlisted forces are largely a conscript force . The average Russian has to serve a 2 year hitch , and draft evasion is rampant . It would serve Russia well to convert to an all – volunteer force . At least then they would know that the people there are there willingly , and will serve their tours of duty .

.. Putin does not have as strong a force as he thinks that he might have . However , he is facing off against a very , very , very weak customer in Barack Obama . Obama is a wuss , and has no idea of strategic concepts , strategic planning , or leadership . Putin does , and is doing so to his best . If Putin were facing off against someone stronger , well then … . Well , he is not , and is taking maximum advantage …
