President “Mouse Fart” Obama Fluffs Again

Why does Barack Obama not understand the concept of STFU? Seriously, his latest performance today trying to portray strength and warn Russia to stay out of the Ukraine was a pathetic, empty, meaningless gesture. If he had one or two adults around him he might have been counseled to say nothing. Why draw a meaningless line in the sand and then do nothing?

All that President Mouse Fart portrayed today was weakness. Compounding matters are the media, Senator McCain and some Cold War crazed pundits hectoring Obama to “stand up” to the Russians. If Obama had a backbone he should have come out in public and said something like the following:

It is the policy of the United States to not interfere in the internal affairs of the Russian Republic. While we regret the violence and loss of life in the Ukraine, the United States is committed to supporting the restoration of the rule of law. To that end we call on the Ukrainian people to come together and work together on a negotiated settlement to their disputes.

It is outright laughable that we–a country hanging on to bases in Cuba and one who invaded, without provocation, Iraq, Grenada and Lebanon–should dare lecture Russia on interfering in the affairs of a neighboring country. We too, should Shut the Fuck Up.

    A great comment:
    ************************

    What can Obama do? He can’t sic his IRS on Putin like he does with American citizens who don’t support him. He can’t have his EPA send a swat team to Putin’s house. He can’t have his TSA Gropestapo sexually assault him. He could accuse Putin of being a racist, I suppose, but somehow I don’t think Putin would be cowered in the least smidgen by
    that.

    I think all Obama can do his huff and puff, go golfing, and have ValJar tuck him into bed with his Mohammad doll.

    I’m no fan of Putin, but from his view in terms of Crimea, of course he would take over that region, its where the Russian fleet is in terms of access to the black sea, also, most of Crimea from what I’ve read is pro-Russia.

    so the country of Ukraine ousts -by “Occupy” like protests- a duly elected president, puts in a new one, of course the non-protestors in the country are pissed, turn to Russia for help, and of course Putin needs any excuse to “stabilize”.

    this is a civil problem in that country… now if Putin starts going into other regions of Ukraine, that’s another matter… but frankly, I wonder how the US would react if some pro-Russian bunch of protestors ousts a duly elected president of Mexico, would we put our forces near the border, heck even within Mexican territory? oh yea, and we would be 100% correct to do so, to protect our country.

    HILLARY CLINTON IS NOT PRESIDENT IN 2016

    Israel is in COMPLETE STRATEGIC COLLAPSE – we are already focusing 16 steps past that on REMOVING AIPAC’s GIRL

    AIPAC is also in COMPLETE STRATEGIC COLLAPSE with Bill Kristol tearing it apart for not going down with the Apartheid ship.

    HILLARY is out in OPEN still completely supporting the Apartheid State and it’s sponser AIPAC, as Apartheid craters into the ICC (Obama told Netanyahu today that he won’t stop Israel’s fall as the UN)

    Hillary is FIXED IN PLACE on her AIPAC horse as AIPAC-APARTHEID freefall to the ICC in September

    Hillary Clinton is FREE-FALLING to the ICC chained to AIPAC which is CHAINED to Apartheid.

    APARTHEID, AIPAC, and AIPAC’s Girl Hillary ARE ALL TOAST, but NONE of them know it yet. ]

    Hillary is out in the OPEN – chained to AIPAC and she can’t get off and she can’t stay on

    Israel is in PANIC mode – AIPAC is in PANIC mode – and now Hillary is in PANIC mode

    From US State Dept. web site re: Ukraine
    The United States attaches great importance to the success of Ukraine’s transition to a democratic state with a flourishing market economy. U.S. policy is centered on realizing and strengthening a democratic, prosperous, and secure Ukraine more closely integrated into Europe and Euro-Atlantic structures. The U.S.-Ukraine Charter on Strategic Partnership highlights the importance of the bilateral relationship and outlines enhanced cooperation in the areas of defense, security, economics and trade, energy security, democracy, and cultural exchanges. (Just kidding Ukrainians, just kidding—O)

    What exactly will Kerry’s visit to Kiev accomplish? Nothing good, I’m afraid. Can none of our so-called political ‘leaders’, right, left, or other, say anything intelligent about this situation? The U.S., none too subtly, supported the overthrow of a duly-elected ( according to OSCE ) government, because that government made decisions not to our liking. What did we expect Putin to do? This is a ginned-up fight aided and abetted by the community organizing crew.

    • piattq

      In all fairness, I think it was the demonstrators in the Maidan square who did not like the government decisions or the gov’t man who made them and considered Yakey to also be corrupt.

      • buckeyeman

        I have no doubt that there was ample corruption in the Yanukovich government, as there has been in the preceding governments, or that there were some protesters there who were motivated by that. But there were many other factions there, and not all were, shall we say, pure of heart.

        I had a long conversation today with my young friend in Kiev. He is of mixed ethnic heritage- Russian, Ukranian, Polish, and even a little Jewish, and has served in the Ukranian army. He says ‘half’ the people don’t recognize this new regime as legitimate, and says he would never take up a rifle against another Ukranian or Russian.

      • stodghie

        pardon but the “cough” so called demonstrators were paid for by the us and soros. this might be of interest.

        “Breaking news on RT international – A leaked diplomatic phone call reveals
        the same snipers on Kiev’s independence square were shooting at both protesters
        and police, and were allegedly in the pay of Ukraine’s new leadership. That’s
        believed to be the Estonian Foreign Minister talking to EU foreign policy chief
        Catherine Ashton; Headlines on RT internatinal – who’s calling the shots in
        Kiev. The rise of hardline nationalists, former convicts among them, is raising
        fears Ukraine’s upheaval has empowered some very dangerous people; Meanwhile
        RT’s out on the propaganda watch – as media’s fuelling panic over Ukraine,
        setting the alarms ringing over Russia’s full-blown intervention and the take
        over of the southern region of Crimea”

    Might just as well cede all the former Soviet Republics now. I am not saying there is anything substantive we can do, but there are a few things to at least “pretend” that we give a damn that Putin rolls into Ukraine. This is some reset Barack gave to Russian — in the ME and now here.

    At the very least someone should manufacture a sore throat for John Kerry rendering him speechless, and invite Obama for a week of golf in California.

    Telegraph has an interesting article noting that the Russian operation today in Ukraine is right out of the Soviet playbook in Eastern Europe. Also noting the spotlight on weakness of NATO and the fact that British NATO men and equipment need to return to Europe via Russian railways at the Afghan close. No mention of US leadership but of emerging British and German leadership for Europe.

    A good read. Includes:

    Too much of the Washington policy establishment looks around the world
    and sees only reflections of its own enlightened self. That’s natural
    and perhaps inevitable to some degree. The people who rise through the
    competitive bureaucracies of American academic, media and think tank
    life tend to be those who’ve most thoroughly absorbed and internalized
    the set of beliefs and behavioral norms that those institutions embody
    and respect.
