“I just received the following note from one of our Inner Circle members. Below the note is my response.”
You want to see a sign of narrow thinking?
Obama made a remark directed at Putin (indirectly)…
I told you before, Putin is NOT stupid, and the Russians are NOT someone to mess around with, but just like the incredible GAFFE by Obama on his “I won both of mine…” he has now thrust us into another cold war, only this time, it’s not going to be funny…
Putin will MAKE OBAMA PAY for those remarks, mark my words.
Instead of Obama modeling the solution, remaining empathetic and offering a fig leaf, he threw down a gauntlet and will now UNDO everything that has been achieved since the wall came down.
The LEGACY of Obama will be smeared with foreign policy gaffes, and I believe what will erupt will be WWIII, and we’ve seen the spark now.
YOU NEVER< NEVER put a bear in the corner, the only thing they know to do if fight.
We have single-handedly declared war on Russia through the leadership of sanctions which caused they economy to crumble.
THE ONLY THING that brought us out of a depression was a WAR…
Do you think that is an isolated circumstance?
Or is WAR FOOTING a tool that can be used to resolve depression?
If so, we are in trouble because RUSSIA IS IN DEPRESSION, and the oil “business” has helped trigger the problems.
I expect the ARCTIC to be a battleground as well as eastern Europe, all fought by proxy…
By RICK LYMAN and ANDREW E. KRAMER
Evidence is increasing that Russian troops and Russian equipment have been pouring into eastern Ukraine again
What choice do they have?
And who narrowed the choice?
Through lack of experience (a foreign policy team that doesn’t know what it’s doing) and OBAMA’s ego position.
You wanted interesting?
You got it!
Here’s the quote:
Second, we are demonstrating the power of American strength and diplomacy. We’re upholding the principle that bigger nations can’t bully the small by opposing Russian aggression and supporting Ukraine’s democracy, and reassuring our NATO allies.
Last year, as we were doing the hard work of imposing sanctions along with our allies, as we were reinforcing our presence with the frontline states, Mr. Putin’s aggression, it was suggested, was a masterful display of strategy and strength. That’s what I heard from some folks. Well, today, it is America that stands strong and united with our allies, while Russia is isolated, with its economy in tatters.
That’s how America leads: not with bluster, but with persistent, steady resolve.
THIS WAS A BAD MOVE, and shows lack of empathy for the Russian people in general, about 10 million or so are Russians on the USA, or more.
In developmental coaching, I call this modeling the problem, here’s why:
When someone models their “reasoning”…contained within that are the problems of the next or more complex levels…
So I call it modeling the problem which can be solved at a different level…
In this case, Obama and our country is making a huge error that will come back to haunt us all and the world…
it’s just a matter of time…
If Obama thinks Putin is not “so masterful” then the WORST thing he could have done…is embarrass him in front of 37.1 million watching the speech and the billion they will affect…
SUPER STRATEGIC ERROR…that shows Obama’s ego position…
