The Stepping Stones to the Ukraine Crisis

“Again, each incident in and of itself was of little import. None were the stuff of crises. But incrementally all these tiny tesserae began forming a mosaic, fairly or not, of the Obama administration as either weak or clueless or perhaps both.”

THE BLAZE: Washington Post: global democracy ‘receding’ under Obama

“President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality.”

~ SAITH TEH BINKS: As I recall it, Ronald Reagan warned Europe NOT to become economically and industrially dependent on Russian oil & gas. Too late. Now we see why that prudential warning is now coming home to roost. The USSR died in 1991. Too many people thought it was the End Of History, and peace, love, flowers, and Kumbayah would break out everywhere. Now, Russia has a Tsar again.. just a reminder, that means “Caesar”. Europe has unelected chinless wonder Herbert Van Rompuy, and America has Mom-Jeans & his Funtime Commie Club. Mom-Jeans is only good at riding unicorns, torturing sick people, business people, Tea-Partiers, and setting up a proto-tyranny in the United Police States of America.


Real world with hard men? Not so much.

Russia has taken Obama’s measure, and found him to be what he is: a cowardly bully with little spine, wisdom, cojones, or real-world hardball skills. His judgement & foreign policy misadventures have sent messages loud and clear around the world– unless you’re on the drone-hit list, or the domestic mysterious death list, you’ve very little to fear from Mr. Soetoro.

Writes a Facebook observer: “‘Soft power’ is a myth of postmodern wishful thinking. It means nothing in the face of those with arms AND the will to use them. The world has not fundamentally changed from the days of “horses and bayonets” that Barry so self-importantly disparaged.”

National Post’s Kelly McParland: “Obama’s reluctance to carry a big stick on the international scene — in Syria, in Egypt, in Libya, in Iraq and Afghanistan — is an invitation to the warlords and autocrats of the world to fill the void. Putin’s brash move will only encourage them to abandon any fears they still have that there might be a high cost to pay

“For those even with passing interest in the day to day functions of a modern American president, the term “Daily Presidential Briefing” should ring familiar. It is the time when a president is basically given the security status of the United States – and today, as Europe teeters under the weight of uprisings, and the emerging dominance of the Putin Russian government, as well as upheaval in South America and the Middle East, today’s daily briefing was cancelled. The question now, and it should be asked, is WHY?”
