… If You Say Something , Then You Should Mean It [#George W. Bush]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 27th,2016

.. well , until now , former President Dubya has not said yankee doodle about anything [politics and / or policy] about His Lordship . Well , that has now changed …

.. Dubya made a speech to a gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition the other night . He should have realized that anything , especially that coming from the mouth of aformer President , would make news . Boy , oh boy , did it ever …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..

.. [link] to the blog article …

.. Dubya did not mince words . He feels that POTUS ‘ Iran policy is a grievous mistake . It takes President Rouhani as an actual president , when the real power lies elsewhere . Also , the idea that sanctions can ” snapback ” is hardly a realistic possibility , especially given the antics of the U.N. . It was not all that he said …

.. the title of this post is the capstone . Simply put , it means whatever comes out of your mouth , you have to stand behind it , no matter what …

… the Russians are Playing a Very dangerous Game [#military bluff]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 22nd,2016

.. and so is POTUS ..

.. the Russians perceive weakness . They smell weakness in our POTUS . So , they are going to try and see what they think that they can get away with while Obama is still in office . Which can be very dangerous …

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

.. weakness shows danger . It also can beget miscalculation . If one side or the other is not very , very careful , then there can be , at the very least , a diplomatic incident . It could be worse , though … Much worse …

.. it could lead [however accidently] to war …

… Would Vlad the Imperialist be That Crazy ?? [#attacking Ukraine]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 1st,2016

.. even given the political chaos in Kiev , Ukraine ‘ s military has proven to be no soft touch …

.. so far , Ukraine ‘ Army has fought very effectively and quickly to retake rebel – held lands in the east . The rebels have fought very poorly , and even the Russian – speaking areas have not exactly taken to the rebels . So what may happen next ? …

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

.. a good bit of the calculation comes from how Putin thinks about POTUS . The Europeans are , for the most part , very weak . They have denuded their defenses , and are also heavily dependent on Russian gas and oil . So , other than the U.K. and France , most of Europe is no big whoopee … the U.S. is another matter …

.. it is not the U.S. military that worries Putin . He knows that Russia is militarily no match for the U.S. . However , geopolitically , Obama is no match for Putin . That is the danger of miscalculation …

.. Putin has to be very careful . The danger of a miscalculation is ever – present . If he goof , there could be a war …. and military confrontation ….

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 13th,2016

.. yep , you heard it here , first .

.. POTUS is a Wuss . He is , in matter of fact , the First Wuss . So What else is new ?? …

.. there is a great deal of difference between him and a true and real leader . That man is , of course , King Abdullah II of Jordan ..

.. [h/t — TomFernandez.com]..
.. [link] to the show segment ..

.. the First Wuss takes no forceful action , none whatsoever . He does not even have a clue about the meaning of the word ” leadership . ” …

.. His Majesty is far different . He is leading his country [the kingdom] into war with leadership and decisiveness . Also , a number of Arab nations are rallying to his side , and not ours . For good reason …

… Why is POTUS pawning off his Weekly Address on FLOTUS …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 15th,2014

.. POTUS should be doing his own weekly addresses , he should not be pawning them off on his wife …

.. especially on an important subject like the Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria ..

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the video segment // blog news …

.. I will tell you why … Boko Haram and their fellow compatriots in the Saharan area of Africa are trying to tie together their efforts . What they are doing is extremely violent , and the ObamaCraps are doing nothing about it …

… Kidnap Me [#Lack of Respect for America] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 23rd,2014

.. Bill O ‘ Reilly dropped the hammer on His Lordship (Obama) on Thursday Night ‘ s Talking Points Memo on the Factor ..

.. It is worse than That , Bill [#on His Lordship] …
.. to see it , I will provide it to you …

.. [h/t — Bill O ‘ Reilly.com ]..
.. [link] to the Talking Points Memo segment …

.. it is really worse than that , Bill .

.. Obama could not give a damn about foreign policy . Not one damn bit …

.. The only part of it that he does give a damn is where it fits in to his domestic agenda . Which has put our nation and our citizens into grave danger …

.. if an Israeli is , for example , kidnapped overseas , it happens rarely . It is because the likelihood of retaliation by the Israeli government is swift , sure , and certain ….

.. With Americans these days , it is by far the opposite . When we travel overseas these days , we go with targets on our backs . Our backs have signs attached , ones that are signed ” Kidnap Me . ” The likelihood of U.S. retaliation for the killing or kidnap of an American is constipated , non – existent , and it will not happen . That is the level and lack of respect for America these days overseas under His Lordship …

… 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 , ….

… Weakness Begets Danger [GeoPolitics]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 11th,2014

.. Today , America is projecting weakness . POTUS ’ failure to enforce his red line in Syria projected weakness. His constant talk of withdrawal and ending wars so we can focus on “nation-building here at home” projects weakness. His decision to gut the U.S. defense budget and reduce the Army to pre-World War II levels projects weakness.

.. When your adversaries believe you are weak , they are emboldened to act . What is more dangerous for all is that weakness begets miscalculation . Wars are begun that way …. Putin believes there will be no real costs for his intervention in Ukraine because there were no costs in Syria . He thinks that the Obama ” Doctrine ” is to do just enough “ not to get mocked . ” He just may well be right . If he is , then it will have consequences far beyond the Crimean Peninsula. A failure to impose costs on Russia will further embolden adversaries from Beijng to Pyongyang to Tehran — all of whom are measuring Obama’s resolve in Ukraine, just as Putin measured Obama’s resolve in Syria and found it lacking.

.. The lesson of history is clear: Weakness is provocative. And symbolic gestures and strongly worded statements are not enough . They are certainly not going to get Russian troops out of Ukraine …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 9th,2014

.. well , it is not the blast that the Washington ComPost politically put up Obama ‘ s hide …

… 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 …

.. the WashingtonComPost editorial , blasting POTUS for his head – in – fantasyland foreign policy … [link]…
