Gee, Bammy really stepped in it this time.

Putin, the master chess player, is 4 moves ahead of Bammy and Bammy doesn't even know it.

Russia sends warship with ‘special cargo’ to Syria
AFP ^ | September 6, 2013

MOSCOW — A Russian warship carrying “special cargo” will be dispatched toward Syria, a navy source said on Friday, as the Kremlin beefs up its presence in the region ahead of possible US strikes against the Damascus regime.

The large landing ship Nikolai Filchenkov will on Friday leave the Ukrainian port city of Sevastopol for the Russian Black Sea port of Novorossiisk, from where it will head to Syria’s coast, the Interfax news agency quoted a source from the Saint Petersburg-based central naval command as saying.

“The ship will make call in Novorossiisk, where it will take on board special cargo and set off for the designated area of its combat duty in the eastern Mediterranean,” the source said.

The source did not specify the nature of the cargo.

Russian warships cross Bosphorus, en route to Syria
AFP ^ | September 5, 2013

Three Russian warships crossed Turkey’s Bosphorus Strait Thursday en route to the eastern Mediterranean, near the Syrian coast, amid concern in the region over potential US-led strikes in response to the Damascus regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons.

The SSV-201 intelligence ship Priazovye, accompanied by the two landing ships Minsk and Novocherkassk passed through the Bosphorus known as the Istanbul strait that separates Asia from Europe, an AFP photographer reported.

One likely scenario.
Our warships launch Tomahawks at Syrian targets.
Russian warships closer to Syria launch interceptor missiles to try to shoot them down.
Our warships see these Russian missile launches and think they are being attacked. They launch missiles at the Russian warships.
The Russian warships see the inbound missiles and launch their missiles at the American warships.

World War Three ensues.

Or, Obama abjectly backs down, and as part of the terms, agrees to remove the U.S. Navy from the Med and Indian Ocean, for example.

Sometimes military paradigm shifts happen violently. Ask the Brits what happened to “Fortress Singapore” and their battleships there.

He can do anything he wants. He always has. THAT is why we are on the precipice of WW III.

He engaged his mouth thinking everyone would follow because they always did...

Obama at this point in history is what happens when a child is fawned over, when the young adult is made to feel important and special, and NO ONE takes him to task as an adult, treating him as a god. Dr. Spock would be proud.

He can’t [back down]. The Saudi’s have the goods on him and he knows it.

Well, now that the Russians have overtly stated that they have positioned nuclear weapons on Syrian soil, and intend to use them if we invade, or even strike, perhaps...

....perhaps the Saudis will realize that a global thermonuclear war might impact their lifestyles just a wee little bit.

They might order Obama to back down.

Putin: Syria chemical attack is ‘rebels’ provocation in hope of intervention’

Published time: September 06, 2013 13:29

(snip)

Russia “will help Syria” in the event of a military strike, Putin stressed as he responded to a reporter’s question at the summit.

“Will we help Syria? We will. And we are already helping, we send arms, we cooperate in the economics sphere, we hope to expand our cooperation in the humanitarian sphere, which includes sending humanitarian aid to support those people – the civilians – who have found themselves in a very dire situation in this country,” Putin said.

He’s a puppet. He knows that the checks have already cleared. And the Saudis undoubtedly have the birth certificate and incriminating information of any of his past political and financial dealings.

Even if he wanted to, he couldn’t. He’d just be replaced (perhaps messily) with someone who would.

The Saudi national anthem is ‘Onward Christian Soldiers’.

We’ve done their fighting for 25 years.

I’d love to know just what sort of remuneration McCain, Lindsay and Cantor have gotten out of all this...

If they’re giving Hillary half million dollar precious gem parures, that we know about, what have they given the rest of these jerks?
