Reset! Reset! Reset!
Libtards always claim they conduct foreign policy matters “better and smarter”. Instead we get Kerry and Obama, the equivalent of half and full retard.
Russian subs off the coast of Ukraine now. FOX
Obama has been an absolute foreign policy disaster. Period.
It’s one screw-up after another and perhaps the most damaging thing is that his foreign policy has not represented the historical American spirit. We have supported our enemies and screwed our friends. That will harm us far into the future - Iran/Carter and Bin Laden/Clinton anyone?
...this guy is gonna blunder his way into a Major Event through his erratic toothless red lines and hollow pronouncements.
A Major Event we are hardly in a good position to properly service at the moment.
Gonna be Real Interesting to see how this plays out.
I think Ukraine was payback to the Russians for Syria. As bad as Obama might look on this, invading the Ukraine was probably the last thing Putin wanted to do a month ago.
Does anyone here truly believe that Mr. Obama will authorize a nuclear counter-strike if we’re attacked?
Well the enemies of freedom are on the move big time, but hey we got gay marriage, and glowbull warming, and no American flags in school because the illegal immigrant children will be violent to us and
THIS COUNTRY IS A ***DAMN JOKE NOW ;/
Good job Kerry and obama you freaking incompetents
yes, he will because he is deranged
I’m in favor of getting the CIA and our money out of Syria in return for Russia not meddling in Ukraine.
I can hear the russian ambassador to the U.S. saying, *uh ... uh .... uh*
True, but so far he hasn't done it. He is on the other hand holding a Damoceles sword above Ukraine. As a chess player he should know that a threat is much more powerful than actually making the aggressive move.
If he plays this in the best way (and the other side does not make a historical mistake) he will continue the political, military, economical pressure on Ukraine, while the IMF and the EU will dismantle what is left of the poor country's economy. Eventually there will be some new political upheaval and Ukraine will fall like a ripe fruit in the lap of the Russians. Sad - but the likely outcome.
What can upset this scheme is either a total miscalculation by NATO/EU/USA (welcome WWIII) or actions by extremists (russophobe and/or russophile ones) inside Ukraine.
Exciting times - much too excitng for my taste!
This is what you get when you let a group of faculty lounge Marxists take over national policy.
Many a leader has blundered his way though foreign policy mistakes.
However, Obama has managed to alienate his own military as well as our allies.
Many a soldier will think twice about risking his own neck to cleanup the disasters that this sorry sob of a leader has gotten into.
Yes, as so many have said before me; elections have consequences.
Isn’t the recall of an ambassador usually a prelude to a declaration of war?
It’s the first step. The second step is the breakoff of diplomatic relations. The third step is a declaration of war or an outright attack.
My heroes have always been cowboys.....
Giddy Yupp !
Retard! Retard!! Retard!!!
you can bet the farm on this.......
weakness always invites aggression.
And since we're overextended, broke, friendless and downsized - exactly how do we stand up to Putin? Obama's got the begger's answer - we go to the UN - hat in hand.
While I think that a strategic strike against the US from the Russians over this is highly unlikely- Obama's first gut impulse would be the 'we deserved it' one. What would end up happening in an extreme situation with this man at the helm? I don't know. Maybe with a bunch of US cities in smoldering devastation, a 10KT airburst over the northern end of Novaya Zemlya 'as a warning?
After all, guy's got more in common ideologically with a bunch of old Commies than he does with us and the Soviet mentality isn't that far in the past.
You have that so right. The legacy of Carter and Clinton foreign policy left us with enemies and messes that had to cleaned up when grown ups returned to the WH. The same is going to happen with this current inept administration.
Ambassadors get recalled quite regularly as some sort of protest.
A bunch of South Americans recalled their European ambassadors last summer as part of the Snowden drama.
I sure don’t recall a war breaking out then.
Yes it is. But I don't think it will happen - there is no need to do so and if it is done - it is simply a show of power.
But Russia is not interested in war with the US - not now.
I hope that there is another grown up administration. Between the Dems buying votes out of the public exchequer, the IRS as a political weapon, fraud and Karl Rove, I have my doubts.
“Flexible” to Bam means bending over.
Sounds like the have begun to prepare for a war footing better than Obozo..
Usually a protective measure.
“Instead we get Kerry and Obama, the equivalent of half and full retard.”
Don’t forget they’re also part of the Dumb and Dumber Duo of Odumbo and Biden.
Kabuki dance. The Russian parliament is playing the Bad Cop, which makes Putin look like the Good Cop. Watch it happen.
“Isnt the recall of an ambassador usually a prelude to a declaration of war?”
It took 20 posts before the question was asked. Maybe the headline writer misused ‘recalled’ foe ‘summoned’?
