Putin greets Obama with Syria threat
FoxNews.com ^ | 09/05/2013 | Chris Stirewalt

Posted on 09/05/2013 7:24:27 AM PDT by Thane_Banquo

President Obama arrived in Russia today to find the already failing relations with his host in even worse condition. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s threat to provide his Syrian allies with a missile shield in the event of U.S. airstrikes further complicates Obama’s flagging effort to win international support for an attack on Damascus. As the Guardian reports, Putin’s warning that an attack without UN backing would provoke military aid from Russia may drive away the handful of international partners for Obama’s proposed attack.

I don’t buy that they are at odds. I believe that this is a ploy to create a crisis to let Obama get more of his socialist agenda rammed through.

In diplomatic circles this is known as “bitch-slapping”. And it would never happened with George W. Bush.

Obama’s could have had this over and done 3 days and moved on. Now he faces a probable Russian response with his dithering.

Who is who, and who is backing whom in Syria.

Here's all you need to know about Syria”:

A minority of 26% of the population is allied with Assad: Alawite Muslims (Assad's tribe), Druze Muslims, Shi'ite Muslims, Christians. This 26% minority runs Syria.

The 74% majority out-of-power are Sunni. The anti-government rebels are being encouraged and funded by Sunni states like Saudi Arabia and the Gulf nations. Obama has sided with the Saudi-backed Sunni rebels.

The Iranians, Russians, and Chinese back Assad. If Obonzo is stupid enough to attack, he might trigger a major war with Assad's allies and that's the real danger the idiots inside the DC Beltway are ignoring or downplaying to appease this lying POS (and his brain, Valerie Jarrett) in the White Hut.

I can’t believe it but I am actually glad that Putin has the ‘Nads to stand up to this goofball, Obama and the Vietnam Veteran, John Kerry. It is a sad day when one trusts a Russian ex-KGB over the President and Secretary of State of the United States.

BTW wonder if Obama asked the Swedish Prime Minister to send troops to support the “limited strike”? Know he didn’t, but that would have been a great question to ask at the joint press conference they had.

I spent a little time in Ireland last month, and they’re still chuckling about him getting drunk at an international conference, and grabbing a seated Angela Merkel from behind. (She’s not very popular in the UK).

Most Americans voted for Obama because of his skin color.

They did not vote for his diplomatic experience or leadership skills.

Reverse racism is still racism...and Obama is proof that reverse racism is just as bad.

To understand Putin is to know that he is a relic of the Cold War, before glasnost, before perestroika,a throwback to the period that was once the height of never-ending brinkmanship between the US and then USSR. It is not quite the Cuban Missile Crisis because Russia is not nearly as powerful, virulently anti-West as it was in its heyday. Putin, ex top KGB agent, resents Gorbachev in the extreme for dismantling the empire he still longs for, and still plays by the same rules as much as possible, the game of which goes back to the pre-Gorbachev era.

Really reduce the level of conversation.

Also go on and on and on about their grandchildren and what a good president Eisenhower was.

Forget that he’s a Muslim and a Marxist for a moment. This is what you get when you allow a complete incompetent to assume the Presidency of the United States.

Ostumbles is like a recalcitrant child who wants his way no matter what. Note the pic of him on Drudge yesterday with his foot on the Resolute desk. Its just a way of acting out like the pics of him giving the finger and pretending to be rubbing his temple. He’s still a member of the Choom Gang and has the emotional maturity of a 16 year old only now he’s a real danger to us all.

We’re all on the same team, brother...

Elderly kooky types, young firebrands, weathered warriors, seasoned citizens, radical republicans, libertarian lightning rods...(feel free to add to the epithet list)

At the end of the day, it’s US... all of us... against “them” on the other side.

And some of the “elderly” out here - a LOT of them - spent time fighting the ideological allies of the Democrats in Korea and Vietnam... so I think if they want to talk about their grandchildren out here, well, they earned it.

(For the record, I was too young for Ike!!! My first voting Presidential election was Reagan, and he set the bar which NO ONE else has come close to).

Obama tells Medvedev he will have more flexibility, and in the next moment due to Syria they are magically at odds. Over what? Syria? Just out of the blue they dislike eachother and not one person can find the reason why they now hate eachother. Something is not right here.

I think Putin is angry that obama drew a red line and did not go into Syria on the timeline they had set. Putin is in with Iran and obama knows this. I believe that they had it set for obama to strike Syria (flexibility) giving Iran and Russia the go ahead to attack and destroy Israel. Glitch, obama found out he didn’t have the flexibility he thought he had now Putin thinks obama is a weakling. Time to reset the agenda and all will be well between the two socialists. Their little farxe will be proven when obama strikes Syria and Russia and Iran hit Israel. Obama hates Netanyahu and Israel so he would be happy if Israel was destroyed.

I hope and pray I’m wrong, but this is a dangerous farce being played out here. I hope Israel will remain safe.

He does love the alcohol- his dad was a raging alcoholic and he may be too. At times he has the disconnected speech and look of a drunk just coming off a major bender - incoherent, angry, overly sensitive to criticism, rightous indignation etc.

I was always suspect of his personality "ticks" and one day I was reading the WH Insider blog about the frequently drunk Obama when I became convinced that the WH Insider may just be the real deal -

As opposed to know-it-all brats who ought to listen and learn from their elders? Those of us who are “elderly kooky types” know what our country used to be, and we want it back! Our country is being lost because people are content with their own little status quo world and refuse to see the bigger picture - that we have been the proverbial frog in the slowly boiling pot.

And, by the way, no one really cares how many degrees a person has, either. All they are is an indication that one can complete a task. It is no indication that knowledge was actually acquired.

I always wonder why those who don’t like it here on FR don’t just leave.

So many people people take themselves soooo seriously, and get upset when someone says something they don’t agree with.

Fortunately, rational discourse peeks around the corner occasionally and says “Hi!”

the seating plan at the summit has been changed to put more physical distance between President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Also, there are reports that Obama has requested that someone go with him when he has to use the restroom, and that someone walk him to his car.

My knowledge about international opinion on the street level is based on travel to 100+ countries.

That includes...wait for it...Moslem countries!!!

I’ve even been to Syria, before the current troubles. An adult job in the corporate world takes one all over the world.

Television and talk radio are sorry substitutes for travel.
