President Obama and President Putin can rectify the present indifferences without starting a war, but, the demagogues must stop their vacuousness!

In the final analysis, President Obama and President Putin can resolve the indifferences over the annexation of Crimea. Mr. Obama using measured sanctions against Russia, while leaving Mr. Putin enough room to extricate himself, represents Obama’s intelligence over ego. It seems that Putin is not a crazy man but he is definitely a proud man! Putin initiating a call to Obama on Friday, is a sign that this brisk but dysfunctional period can end without each side killing the other!

 

If we step back for a moment and without ignoring the lives lost or the humongous number of injured soldiers, the trillions of dollars spent on both the Afghanistan and Iraq wars; we could have rebuilt all the damaged schools; repair our badly needed infrastructure; invest into retraining American Workers and do more to efficiently educate America’s Children.

 

What did we get for the thousands of lives lost and the trillions of dollars spent?

 

Iraq! After eight years all we did was replace a Sunni Dictator with a Shiite Dictator that cast his lot with Iran. I am no defender of Saddam Hussein, but Iraq is far worst today than when we unintelligently and arrogantly invaded that sovereign country.

 

Afghanistan! After thirteen years; the Obama Administration did finally kill Osama Bin Laden in 2011 and during the course over the past years, we captured some bad people. However, had we remained focused when we attacked Afghanistan, our Soldiers perhaps could have captured the bad people and we would have been out of there in a matter of two to three years.

 

John McCain and some Republicans that never saw a war they didn’t like should give heed to the words of the wise and the humble;

 

“I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can; only as one who has seen its brutality, its stupidity.” DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER

 

“All wars represent a failure of diplomacy.” TONY BENN

 

“There never was a good war or a bad peace.” BENJAMIN FRANKLIN

 

“As long as war is regarded as wicked, it will always have its fascination; when it is looked upon as vulgar, it will cease to be popular.” OSCAR WILDE

 

“War may sometimes be a necessary evil, but no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other’s children.” JIMMY CARTER

 

Imagine the irony! Jeb Bush, the man who “shop-lifted” the State of Florida that propelled his brother, George W. Bush to the Presidency, attacked President Obama for “America’s Passivity.” People can agree or disagree, but it is the opinion of many that George W. Bush erased 225 years of America’s credibility by his futile and inept war expeditions. Bush started a war on “terror” in Afghanistan that became an Orwellian never ending war on “terror,” solely because Bush truncated Afghanistan in order to invade Iraq, for which the end results for both wars were; thousands of dead soldiers; tens of thousands injured; one hundred thousand plus dead innocent Iraqi’s that was caught in what is deemed as collateral damage and trillions of dollars spent.

 

If the Polls are correct majority of Americans are presently giving President Obama a failing grade and within the same Poll, predictions are that Republicans will win over the Senate. To think of the terrible state America was in at the end of 2008 and compare it with where we are today, it is positively shocking that so many people can believe wantonness by the Republicans over reality!

 

Is it hate or Obama’s race that make him prey to the many whites? Gallup just released a Poll for which the results reflected that “more whites” are more inclined to the Republican Party since Obama became President. 

 PRESIDENT OBAMA and PRESIDENT PUTIN
