How many of you caught the news of the Russian nuclear capable bombers flying just 50 miles off the California coast on Monday last? Our Air Force sent up two F-22's to monitor their activity. Two of them headed back toward Russia and two of them swung north and skirted Alaskan airspace.
Vladimir Putin is just teasing Barry, just like he mocks him every week. How many saw the laser image of Obama lusting after a banana projected on the side of a Moscow office building? Putin has no respect for Barry, with good reason. He's pretty well had his way in the Ukraine, having learned that Barry's "red lines" are just laughable...not to be taken seriously.
Seasoned diplomats will tell you that, when your adversary loses respect for you, you are in dire peril. Whether it's Barry's overall "Muslim ass-kissing" strategy in the Middle East, or the Ukraine, or the present Iraqi mess or Barry's six year long dance with Iran on nuclear weapons manufacturing, Putin has learned that Barry is all hat and no cowboy.
The results of Barry's "leading from behind" whether in domestic affairs, or in foreign policy, chaos rules the day in our nation's capitol. Obama has managed to take us from the world's only superpower to the world's biggest wimp.
That worries me. Let me ask you all a question. Knowing Obama heads out on vacation or to a fundraiser, or simply sits impotent in the oval office every time there's a crisis, how much confidence do you have that Obama would pull the trigger on a nuclear war if old Vladamir decided to take the big gamble and send a couple of hundred nuclear missiles our way? Now, I want you to think about that really hard. How many times have you seen Obama fumble the ball, stutter and delay and hope against hope that a problem goes away? Benghazi? Syria? Iraq? Iran? Would you bet your children's lives that Obama would launch? I honestly question whether this man-child would step up to the plate. That's the first time I doubted a President's backbone as regarding nuclear retaliation.
And really, it doesn't matter a whole hell of a lot whether WE believe Barry would launch; the huge question is does Vladamir believe he will! And if he doubts Barry's resolve we could be in for real peril...at least until we send the community organizer back to Chicago.
Meantime, let's hope the ISIS are not using all that money they confiscated across western Iraq to buy a few suitcase bombs from North Korea. The only suitcase I want to see in the next two years are those Obama is carrying on 20 January 2017.
