Who could have foreseen that the Russians would smile at our naif of a President and then Cossack dance all over him. I mean he sent Hillary over with a reset button (well they almost got the word right). He gave away our missile defense and stabbed two former Soviets who were now our allies in the back. He caved to a new START treaty in which the Russians give up nothing but missiles they were shitcanning anyhow. I;m sure we are getting all kinds of good diplomatic and geo-strategic help from them right?
MOSCOW – Russia will load fuel into Iran's first nuclear power plant next week despite U.S. demands to prevent Iran obtaining nuclear energy until the country proves that it's not pursuing a weapons capacity, officials said Friday.
Well now that's helpful. You can add to that selling the Iranians gasoline to ensure that the weak ass sanctions we tried to put on them have no effect. You know, maybe bowing and scraping and kow towing may not be such an effective technique when dealing with ruthless tyrants. Diplomacy can only be effective if the other side believes there is some consequence for bad actions. Does anyone think the Iranians are worried about Obama launching strikes? Ha. And Putin and the rest of the Russian crime syndicate he has built know an easy mark when they see one. Obama is so desperate to be liked that he will give up just about anything for a meaningless press conference.
The damage being done to our economy by the policies of the Obama brain trust is devastating. The damage to our national security is potentially even worse. If we create a power vacuum, it will be filled. Predators smell weakness and attack. Sometimes militarily, but sometimes by simply taking advantage and making power plays. We are getting smoked in that arena and recovering will be tough. It will take proving that we still have an iron fist inside that velvet glove we have been stroking everyone with.
