Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,November 24th,2016

.. it appears that we are .

.. that makes many people nervous , including me .

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

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,September 3rd,2016

.. Yemen is descending in chaos , bordering on all – out civil war . An anti – American government now control Sana’a [the capital] , while the rest of the country is up for grabs …

.. but why ?? …

.. it is not just that . I wonder about the political support behind our armed forces . They are venturing into very dangerous territory , where wars have a habit of getting started if you are not careful …

.. I don’t doubt our military , even at a reduced level of strength . Our LHAs [basically , ” chopper carriers “] have a strong air arm , and are staffed mainly by Marines . Those LHAs can take care of themselves . But what do I wonder about ?? …

.. not Ash Carter . At least our current SecDef has two big brass ones . He is not the one that I worry about . The one in the National Command Authority that I do worry about ? POTUS , who else …

.. I worry about his judgement , his lack of leadership , and his lack of intestinal fortitude . Not to mention his lack of honesty …

… 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 ? …

… Obama does not Have the Guts , Er , Balls …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 18th,2013

.. Simply put , POTUS could close the Guantanamo Bay prison right now , if he really wanted to …

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the University of Southern California (Video of the speech) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

[-] it is a military prison . Guantanamo Bay is a Navy Base , folks . On Cuban soil , no less .

[-] Barack H. Obama is President of the United States , at least the current one .

[-] POTUS is the commander – in – chief of our army and navy , our armed forces .

.. If he really wanted to , he could issue the order , transfer the inmates out to another nation or base , and close Gitmo . Right Now . There are a few problems with that …

.. no other base is really equipped for the inmates ,

.. those bases are in allied nations ,

.. who would want those inmates . Their countries of origin sure as hell would not want them . Most of them are likely from the Arab world , from the Palestinian territories , Saudi Arabia , Kuwait , Yemen , etc .

.. Congress can restrict their transfer domestically . Not overseas . Also , not to another U.S. military base with a prison . If the commander – in – chief says they go , then they go . Congress makes the rules , and pays the bills , but the President commands .

.. Chiefly , POTUS does not have the guts . Which figures . Obama is a wus , a gutless wonder . If he had to stand election again , he would face a primary challenge . Most likely , from Miz Hillary , or some other DemoCrap willing to roll the dice , especially one with $$ .
