This Is How Obama’s Weakness In Ukraine Embarrasses America

My, how the mighty have fallen under the stewardship of Barack Hussein Obama.

This weekend on CNN’s State of the Union, President Obama’s Deputy National Security Advisor, Tony Blinken, revealed a shocking truth.

When asked about the impact of U.S. military assistance in Ukraine, Blinken said, “It’s very unlikely to change Russia’s calculus and prevent an invasion.”

Blinken is warning that the United States, a country that was called the world’s only superpower a few short years ago, is powerless to stop Russia from invading Ukraine. Worse yet, that means the United States is incapable of holding up its end of a treaty guaranteeing Ukraine’s territorial integrity.

The situation is desperate, according to Sunday’s AFP reports. Russian troops have consolidated Crimea’s annexation. A sweeping takeover of Ukrainian military bases in Crimea is basically over. The Russians met very little opposition.

Ukraine’s acting Defense Minister, Igor Tenyukh, lamented publicly about how his naval forces were ready to surrender to Putin’s Black Sea Fleet: “You know that in recent days, we have had our ships blockaded and seized, even though our commanders had the authorization to use force,” Tenyukh said. “Unfortunately, the commanders made decisions on the spot. They chose not to use their weapons in order to avoid bloodshed.”

It's not a fair comparison, if one of them never had "bails" to being with.

Obama's Ukraine strategy;
1.March 26, 2014
Will announce to the world that Putin's Mom wears combat boots.
2. March 27, 2014
Obama reveals Bare chested pictures of Putin were photoshopped to include chest hair.
3. March 28, 2014-
Obama to announce Putin's original family name was RAS-Putin, the RAS was dropped after his paternal grandfather besmirched the Rasputin name to one of ill repute.

More sole super power muscle-flexing against the puny bare-chested donkey-rider towards intimidating Russia to leave Crimea demonstrates Obama's got this global power gig well in hand. Got them Slavs exactly where I want them.

Every time Obama opens his mouth he embarrasses America, every time Obama visits another country he does or says something that embarrasses America. Lets face it, Obama’s very existence embarrasses America.

Obama’s fail on the Ukraine has put the end to NATO. He has demonstrated the US will not militarily back up Europe if Russia invades. Yes, the Ukraine was not a full NATO member, but Poland now knows it is on its own and in a worse spot than it was in 1939.

Obama’s DOD has put our US Navy in Pearl Harbor mode by berthing for long term five of our big carriers in Norfolk, all next to each other.

The only thing I can see to turn things around is to impeach and remove from office the clown in the White House. Of course then we would have to do the same to Biden afterwards.
