Everybody is an “expert!” The Right-Wing blames Obama for not intervening enough while the Left-Wing claim Obama is intervening too much – Ukraine – Crimea – Russia.

 

Unlike President Obama or any other United States President that are subject to the Constitution, Congress, The U S Supreme Court and the American people, Vladimir Putin answers to no one except Mr. Putin. All the Dog and Pony show coming out of Putin’s Russia with claims that the Russian Parliament voted for this or for that, “it is just a farce.”

 

 

Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Russia’s billionaire that opposed Putin’s Dictator-Ship was imprisoned for ten years; all of his assets seized and just before the Sochi Olympics, Putin had him released. Mr. Khodorkovsky is presently living in Germany. Putin used Mr. Khodorkovsky’s assets and created one of the world largest Oil Companies, Rosneft. Prior to Rosneft, Exxon Mobile was the largest Oil Company.

 

However, Exxon Mobile and Rosneft executed an agreement in December 2013 that together, the collaboration of the project is approximately 500 Billion Dollars for the Arctic Research Centre (ARC). With companies like Exxon Mobile and others tied into Putin’s Russia, Vladimir knows that he is playing with a marked deck in his favor. With such leverage and the great Political Divide in America, Putin’s challenges would be fast and furious. Most of the talking heads in the Media and the self indulgent Politicians do not stop to think, much less see that “everything is not just black and white.”

 

It’s been interesting to observe the large numbers of people who suddenly think they’re experts on the ongoing crisis in Ukraine-both those on the left who blame it on Obama for intervening too much and those on the right who blame it on Obama for not intervening enough.

 

On the right, you have political figures claiming that Obama’s supposed “weakness” somehow emboldened Moscow to engage in aggressive moves against Crimea. Sarah Palin, for example, claims that Obama’s failure to respond forcefully to Russia’s bloody incursion into Georgia in 2008 made Russia’s “invasion” possible, despite the fact that Obama wasn’t even president then and therefore couldn’t have done much. Even some Democrats, like Delaware senator Chris Coons, claim that Obama’s failure to attack Syria last fall made the United States look weak.

 

In reality, there seems to be little correlation between the willingness of Moscow to assert its power in areas within its traditional spheres of influence and who occupies the White House: The Soviets invaded Hungary in 1956 when Eisenhower was president; the Soviets invaded Czechoslovakia in 1968 when Johnson was president; the Soviets successfully pressed for martial law in Poland in 1981 when Reagan was president; the Russians attacked Georgia in 2008 when Bush was president.

 

In each case, as much as these administrations opposed these actions, it was determined that any military or other aggressive counter-moves would likely do more harm than good. Washington cannot realistically do any more in response to Russian troops seizing Crimea in 2014 in the name of protecting Russian lives and Russian bases than Moscow could do in response to U.S. troops seizing Panama in 1989 in the name of protecting American lives and American bases.

 

In the final analysis it is self evident that The GOP extreme right-wing megalomaniac torrent is fratricidal to America, both foreign and domestic! Their 24/7 individual and collective outlandish tongues, emboldens the Putins’ of this world! John McCain just returned from Ukraine and one day later, went on Television and said; “Obama is weak and timid.” A tartar may be more at home on Cheapside than the rant against Obama from the “know it all Republicans!”

 PRESIDENT OBAMA - TYRANTS
