Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Warned in 2008 Russia Might Invade Ukraine if Obama Wins Election

In October 2008, then-Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin warned that Putin, having been motivated by Obama's lack of response to the Russian invasion of Georgia, would proceed to invade Ukraine if then-Senator Obama was elected to the presidency.
After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama's reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia's Putin to invade Ukraine next.
Foreign Policy dismissed this warning as "strange" and "far-fetched."
As we've said before, this is an extremely far-fetched scenario. And given how Russia has been able to unsettle Ukraine's pro-Western government without firing a shot, I don't see why violence would be necessary to bring Kiev to heel.
Yesterday, Russia invaded the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine and seized control of two airports.
Seems as though Palin's prediction wasn't too far-fetched after all.
But, she’s an idiot! /s
Talk is talk. Would Palin ask Congress for a formal declaration of war against Russia?
Ok, Putin was not motivated by Obama weakness. Putin was motivated by his boy toy lacky who he basically appointed to be president of Ukraine, got his butt kicked out of power.
At that point Russian had to seize control of Ukraine due its strategic importance with the gas pipelines and the Black Sea access to the Mediterean Sea.
“But, shes an idiot! /s”
In this case, she is more like Forest Gump.
words are just words......kinda like yours here, now
I would love nothing more than to see SARAH PALIN decide to run for POTUS in 2016.
I would work my keister off to help her win!
She wouldn’t have to.
Does anyone have a link to the Foreign Policy article in question, or the text of it?
Under President Palin (that is, I believe, your scenario) it's highly unlikely that she would need too.
She had a chance to run but didn't.
The difference is the real idiot occupies 1600 Pennsylvania Ave
In this case, Sarah understood exactly what she was saying and why. She hardly fell into it like a Forest Gump.
Both the people of George and Ukraine will forever know that their being invaded by the Russians was due to Obama’s weakness as a world leader.
So are you taking that against her?
Time and time again, Palin has been proven right. All while Obama, the media, the GOP-E, and frankly, America as a whole, have gotten things gravely and dangerously wrong.
But the PDS faggots will never admit it.
Putin is motivated by the fact that without Ukraine’s oil pipelines to Europe, Russia’s largest source of cash dries up. He has no choice but to kick asses all over Ukraine, and he’s just getting started.
Even Obastard isn’t stupid enough to stand in his way, not that he wants to (which he doesn’t).
There is approximately zero chance any MSM outlet is going to admit to this.
