The Wimp Factor

In over his head and badly in need of a distraction, US President Barack Obama yesterday issued a pusillanimous message of reassurance to Russia by telling Putin that “we have no interest in encircling Russia.” America has the strongest, most amazing military on the face of the earth, what we don’t have is a leader. Putin knows this, and he will take the Ukraine.

CBS News: President Obama, in an interview in Rome with “CBS Evening News” anchor and managing editor Scott Pelley, said Russia must take steps now to reduce tensions over Ukraine.

“It’s well known and well acknowledged that you’ve seen a range of troops massing along that border under the guise of military exercises. But these are not what Russia would normally be doing. And, you know, it may simply be an effort to intimidate Ukraine or it may be that they’ve got additional plans,” Mr. Obama said.

Putin has no fear over what Obama will do. Obama has shown that he will shy away from any real conflict that can get messy. He ignored the pleas of Iranians who were being shot at in the streets of Tehran. He refused to send military aid to Benghazi even as our ambassador was being murdered by Islamic terrorists.

To resolve and de-escalate the situation right now, Mr. Obama said Russia needs “to move back those troops and to begin negotiations directly with the Ukrainian government, as well as the international community.”

“What I have repeatedly said is that he may be entirely misreading the West,” Mr. Obama continued. “He’s certainly misreading American foreign policy. We have no interest in encircling Russia and we have no interest in Ukraine beyond letting the Ukrainian people make their own decisions about their own lives.”

He continued, “And it is true that we reject the notion that there is a sphere of influence along the Russian border that then justifies Russia invading other countries. Certainly they’re going to have influence because of trade and tradition and language and heritage with Ukraine. Everybody acknowledges that. But there’s a difference between that and sending in troops, and because you’re bigger and stronger taking a piece of the country – that is not how international law and international norms are observed in the 21st century.” source – CBS News
