In this forum more than three weeks ago I predicted that Putin would overtly and covertly let Obama know from the beginning that he would defend Syria. Now today we hear this.
I am quite sure of what has happened here behind the scenes over the past few weeks. I think you will agree it makes perfect sense.
1. Russia gets wind early of Obama’s plan to use the excuse of nerve gas to bomb Syria.
2. There would be various reasons for Obama to do this, and Putin mulls over all of them but surmises that it is nothing other that Obama wishing to take the attention off his failing and mired administration that will soon be challenged by Congress returning form vacation.
3. Putin sits back and watches the scenario on folding.
4. To his amazement Obama telegraphs what he going to do, when etc.
5. Putin still leary pauses, but once he is sure that he is dealing with a rank coward he openly backs Syria and moves ships to the area.
6. Obama still talks of bombing thru Kerry his mouth piece.
7. It’s clear that we are poised to attack as our ships are in place.
8. Assad’s airport and munitions are exposed. It is ripe for our attack to level the playing field.
9. Putin does not wish to fight the British, Americans, Germans etc. and sits back.
10. To his amazement the Brits back off!
11. To his further amazement Obama continues to makes preparations to attack.
12. Putin has intelligence that says the US has ordinances prepared to severely damage Assad’s airport and air force.
13. COVERTLY PUTIN SENDS A CLEAR MESSAGE TO THE USA STATING THAT IF SYRIA IS ATTACKED HE WILL DEFEND SYRIA INCLUDING ATTACKING OUR SHIPS AND PLANES.
14. To everyone’s surprise, Obama wakes up this next day and calls on Congress to decide. Clearly he got the message and very very cold feet. Kerry and others scramble to claim that they were part of the decision when in fact Obama made the decision himself out of fear.
15. Now here we are in Russia at a world conference. Putin is patient and a gracious host.
16. He listens to Obama’s ramblings about bombing Syria and among his confidants chuckles knowing that it is the talk of a rank amateur.
17. He is fully aware of public opinion in our country that speaks favorably of Putin esp in his open defense of Christians in Syria.
18. Many of us on this forum speak in amazement that we find ourselves in a certain kinship not with Obama but with Putin!
19. Putin knows this.
20. Putin listens to Obama’s press conferences and his words and dinners and meetings and he’s had enough.
21. He does not want Obama to leave this conference stronger than when he came.
22. so at the opportune moment, to make the world and everyone clear, (although Obama already has been told this), he thrusts the last piece of his public thrashing of the boy king president and declares clearly for all to hear that Russia will back Syria and will not let the USA bomb away without a fight.
23. Naïve reporters are aghast at his remarks, but Obama has already heard this.
THIS SCENARIO EXPLAINS OBAMA’S MOVES and timid rhetoric. IT ALSO CLEARLY DEFINES THE MAN.
I CAN TELL YOU THAT OBAMA HAS NO INTENT ON BOMBING ANYONE EVER AGAIN. HE KNEW THAT CONGRESS WOULD NOT AUTHORIZE THE BOMBING. WE REDICULE BOEHNER, CANTOR ETC, BUT I THINK THEY KNOW THAT WITH AUTHORIZATION TO BOMB SYRIA OM CONGRESS IT WILL PUT OBAMA ON A COLLISION COURSE THAT WILL FORCE HIM TO PUBLICY BACK DOWN TO RUSSIA AND LOOK THE COWARD AND SECONDLY IT REMOVES ANY HINT OF PARTISANSHIP ON THEIR SIDE. WE SHOULD ACTUALLY APPLAUD WHAT THEY DID, AS THEY ARE NOT OPENLY TRYING TO PERSUADE THEIR MEMEBERS.
My friends, from here out it is all down hill. MEANING THAT These are very dangerous times for us. I look for every despot, hoodlum, dictator to now openly confront us. Taiwan, Korea, etc.
I look for our embassies to be attacked openly. Americans working and in schools all over the globe. Why? Because the whole world knows our president is a coward. He will not fight unless we are attacked and even then he will hesitate.
You think the IRanian hostage crisis was bad, we haven’t seen anything yet.
Today I pray for our nation, and with Pope Francis the world. In the end we will withstand people like Obama, and for a time the world will be a different place, but in the end we will be strong and fully free again.
24. The US Navy, having been gutted by Obama, is in no shape to oppose an aged Russian fleet that is nonetheless willing to fight.
Putin - winner
Obama - loser, hands down
Can't wait until Tuesday night.
Will he become more bellicose or will he find a way to wiggle out of this without losing what's left of his dignity?
