“Do not develop strategies that are based on any assumption that the U.S. or EU will demonstrate assertive leadership to deter Russian aggression.”

KIEV, Ukraine — Some Syrians have a simple message for Ukrainians waiting for a response from the U.S. and the West as the crisis in Crimea unfolds: Don’t get your hopes up.

(Quipped one post on a Facebook group of Syrians offering advice to Ukrainians, often tinged with black humor: “If Obama has said that Ukraine is a red line, this means that Russia will attack you.”)

If the Iranians who participated in the last “revolt” could talk, they would be an interesting group to hear from.

The rest of the world has for the most part, figured this president out. Don’t get your hopes up, you will likely be left on your own except for the rhetoric and clever slogans.

Wow.
Obama and Hillary’s incompetence could obviously have given Russia a port in Syria.

Imagine if Obama’s bungling gives Russia a port on the Indian Ocean!
The players of “The Great Game” would roll over in their graves.

"Obama has made it clear to the world that when confronted with a crisis, he will do nothing. This reduces his options to zero and puts the United States and the world into a situation where rogue nations, non-state organizations, and gangs of thugs can do as they please with no fear of any meaningful response from the U.S. It makes the world a much more dangerous place."

Thanks to Daniel Greenfield for the remarks below to explain where we are with Obozo as POTUS in The Post American order.

The Post-American order stands for nothing except its own dismantling. That is why Obama sets red lines that he won’t enforce and issues threats that he doesn’t mean.

The only thing less appealing than selfishness is the complete absence of self. The only thing less appealing than empire is an anti-imperialism that so thoroughly negates its own power that it has no influence and no reason to exist.

Post-American America exists to destroy itself. Until that changes, it has nothing to offer the world except membership in a suicide pact.

From Audacity of Hope: ‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.’

Hmph.
