Obviously the US Oligarchs and Euro Kleptocrats had absolutely no contingency plans in place in case Russia decided to protect the Crimea. Utter fools. You have to anticipate every possible move in diplomatic chess.
Obama, Jarrett, Kerry....do they even have the ability to really take the diplomatic route? I sense they fly by the seats of their pants.
I really don't know what "flying by the seat of one's pants" means (!) but I'm trying to say that they don't anticipate (diplomatic chess) and when push comes to shove they haven't a clue.
Wonder what's the origin of "push comes to shove"?!
