RUSSIANS DUST COBWEBS OFF COLD WAR TACTICS IN CHESS GAME WITH COMMUNITY ORGANIZER
Sounds like the Russians are getting a tad bit tired of the silly little community organizer’s shuckin’ and jivin’ huh? In reality, Vladimir Putin & Co. know exactly who they’re dealing with and they know exactly how to play him.
Following the O-man’s Barney Fife-like open-mic moment with Dmitry Medvedev last month, does anyone honestly believe it’s a coincidence that Russia’s most senior military officer said today that Moscow would preemptively strike and destroy U.S.-led NATO missile defense sites in Eastern Europe if talks with the Regime about the developing system continue to stall?
This, of course, is not dissimilar from the “Tollybahn” blowing at least seven people to smithereens – immediately following O’s pathetic peace offering in Afghanistan earlier this week.
Honestly, it reminds me of those old Andy Griffith episodes where Andy would let Barney think he had caught the bad guy; Barney would get all smug and full of himself while Andy silently smiled to himself. You were gonna “restore respect for America around the world,” huh, O? Uh huh. It’s obvious that the Russians respect the crap out of you. Here’s one of your bestest admirers, Russian Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov:
“A decision to use destructive force preemptively will be taken if the situation worsens. We have not been able to find mutually-acceptable solutions at this point and the situation is practically at a dead end.”
Russian officials insist that the system has the capability to shoot down their ICBMs, thus robbing their nuclear deterrent of its credibility – and destabilizing the Cold War-era balance of mutually assured destruction. The Regime (correctly) states that the system is defensive in nature – with the purpose of defending America’s allies against terrorist attacks – and that Russia will benefit from the capability as well.
Neither the State Department nor the Pentagon had an immediate comment on the Russian threat.
As for the O-man, he’s probably on the golf course – planning the next leg of his First Annual ‘Don’t Forget I Killed Osama Bin Laden’ Gloatathon Tour. Or maybe he’s on the phone with Hillary, asking: “What the hell do we do now?”
At least the rich don’t threaten the O-man with a first strike.
