Skip to comments.Garry Kasparov: 'High Time To Respond' To Putin
Posted on 03/21/2014 4:49:58 PM PDT by Hojczyk
Kasparov argues that any attempt to diffuse tensions by taking military retaliation off the table fails because Putin and his cronies do not have the best interests of Russia in mind. He says, "They do not, except in the few areas where such interests overlap with their goal of looting as much treasure as possible." When the President explicitly denied the possibility of sending troops to Ukraine, he "freely surrendered one of his greatest advantages: America's overwhelming military strength."
That is not to say that Kasparov is arguing for a military attack on Russia. On the contrary, he explicitly lays out a plan to sanction and cripple the powers that be in Russia and split the wealthy backers that keep Putin in power from Putin himself. Putin, Kasparov argues, "is a lost cause, and Russia also will be until he is gone." But the wealthy who protect him and care only about their own personal comfort are a different story. They stick with Putin, Kasparov states, because "the free world they enjoy living in has made no moves that would force them to choose between their riches and Putin."
Changing that equation with sanctions or other moves that would cripple their ability to use their wealth freely would turn them against Putin, which would immediately weaken the Russian leader. "Sanction the elites who support Putin, go after the family members they use to hide their assets abroad and scrutinize their companies," Kasparov advises.

Kind of makes sense.
Meanwhile Obama plays checkers.
Garry Kasparov is a current or former chess grand master who also supported the nonsense “New Chronology” which built a faux history claiming that many familiar events and historical (and some mythical) persons were adapted from much later Russian events and people.
Forget Kasparov. Obammy is looking for a world class checkers strategist.
Yep, go after the women and children, while giving sanctuary and protection to George Soros, criminal fugitive, who has commited far more similar crimes, far longer.
As much as it is possible for Obama to get the effeminate fag out of his demeanor, and man up with sanctions, he has. It isn’t his fault that Putin won’t respond to his limp-wristed fanny slaps.
What laws allow for such arbitrary appropriations, or does Bronco Bama just wave his pen to make it so?
This has got be one of the most stupid articles ever from Breitgard.
The Jews in Israel, Europe and Russia work together to push their own business interests. It’s called capitalism. What’s hard to understand about that?
In the US, legislation could be passed sanctioning a category of conduct.
But, sure, if you want an EO, lobby for it, by all mens.
Play your pawn Gary.
