If Ukraine had the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama would be falling all over himself with support

Lately, folks have been asking me what I would do about the situation in Ukraine. First, of all I wouldn’t find myself in the current situation because I would have studied a fellow like Vladimir Putin and taken him for his word.

It was Putin who stated his greatest disappointment of the 20th century was the collapse of the Soviet Union. Therefore, I would have certainly war-gamed out his potential courses of action in order to develop a proactive policy – and I certainly would not have expressed my “flexibility” to him.

The first thing is to take an offensive diplomatic approach using a strong military as a deterrent — something we have not done. I would not have cancelled the missile defense shield program back in 2009. As the situation exists today, I would have immediately, after Putin’s Ukraine aggression, reinstated the missile defense shield.

We should have been far more aggressive in bringing Ukraine into the NATO umbrella and reshaped our geographic combatant European Command (EUCOM) from a Cold War forward-deployed posture to a more power projection force. That means we should have looked at short 6-month deployments of forces into Eastern European nations for military to military exercises, something we should be doing now. Instead, the Ukrainian leadership came to Washington DC and asked President Obama for weapons support – and all they got were MREs (Meals Rejected by Everyone).

Sorry people of Ukraine, if you were radical Islamists or Muslim Brotherhood members, Obama would have been more than happy to supply you with arms — heck, in the case of Libya, he would have violated the War Powers Act and launched Tomahawk cruise missiles to support you — oops, forgot, Obama is canceling the Navy’s Tomahawk cruise missile program. Or as with Mohammed Morsi in Egypt, you would have received F-16s and M1 Abrams tanks.

However, most importantly we should realize Putin’s center of gravity (COG) is natural gas, in other words, energy resources. We should have had a plan to stimulate full development of our oil and natural gas production — and not just on state and private lands — but open it up on federal lands. We shouldn’t be grinding our coal industry into the dirt but promoting it to export to Europe and Ukraine. This would undermine Putin’s major economic COG rather than sanctions against 11 fellas and a bank – that’s really deterred Putin from further aggression, right?

But as a student of history I see a very disturbing parallel: first of all the global apathy, secondly, reminders of the 1930s.

It was an aggressive Adolf Hitler and a weak ineffective Sir Neville Chamberlain in those times – wait, does Common Core teach that stuff? Hitler wanted to protect “ethnic Germans” in a region called the Sudetenland. Putin wants to protect “ethnic Russians” in a region called the Crimea. Chamberlain acquiesced and thought a signed agreement from Hitler would suffice to yield “peace in our times.” Obama acquiesced, stating that there would be no military option but he continues to live under the delusion that stating “there will be consequences” carries any weight — more red lines. Putin knows Obama has no credibility.

Putin is using armed militia forces in camouflage uniforms. Hitler used guys dressed up in brown shirts for his Sturmabteilung, the SA. Hitler eventually ran through Czechoslovakia, and eastern Ukraine is feeling the pressure as Russian armored vehicles have crossed the border.

For Hitler, after Czechoslovakia, then came Poland — shall history indeed repeat itself?

Obama continues to tell himself, — because America isn’t listening — that his strategy is working. I guess the folks in England believed Chamberlain just as well until the bombs starting dropping on them. And of course the fawning liberal progressive media and the Democrats will do and say anything to protect their beloved Dear Leader.

I wholeheartedly expect the Democrats to come out soon with a messaging line that blames the poor Ukrainians for what is happening. After all, they had 25 years to get their act together, so why do they expect the beleaguered United States of America to come to their rescue? Or maybe it’s all caused by global warming…

The real angst of the Democrats stems from why the Ukrainians are allowing Obama to be embarrassed by Putin. And that’s why you can expect the Democrats to lash out and blame the Ukrainians — heck, they have to blame someone. And George W. Bush has already been blamed for allowing Putin to takeover Georgia (not my home state, for you low information Obama voters), the former Soviet state in eastern Europe.

Let us all remember that it was a Machiavellian-type leader who began World War II and was joined by a Fascist and an Asian imperial power — Germany, Italy, and Japan. America was suffering from an economic crisis and had no desire to get involved.

Today isn’t much different as we are suffering from the worst economic recovery and Russia, Iran, and China are aligning themselves. And yes, we are not just apathetic but uninformed and disengaged, as we have become so self-absorbed with our toys and gimmicks.

It seems 9-11 didn’t awake the sleeping giant, we just kinda shifted and rolled over back to sleep — case in point, the disintegration of the Demographics Unit in the NYCPD. As we decimate our military capacity and capability as a deterrent force so progressive socialists – led by Obama — can play social egalitarianism — I pray there will not be an event that does indeed wake us up. Sadly, history does not support that desire.

History repeats itself, because no one was listening the first time. You know that the liberals in this country never learned from the first world war then the second came and they didn’t learn from that one either. You want to defeat the liberals you have to treat them like whining three year old spoiled brats. Let’s hope and pray that The world doesn’t wait till we are all communist countries before something is done. OH WAIT! That is what the “New World Order” is about! Disguised as Agenda 21. The only thing standing in the way is the U.S.… Read more »

Obozo was nothing more than a community organizer. He was a nothing State Senator and an even less U.S. Senator. He was catapulted to the White House by the establishment left wing media and starry eyed adolescents with the idea of equal outcome for everyone regardless of effort put in to achieve it. An individual with no concept of world politics on a strategic level is at the helm of our ship.

I think, as we’ve given Obama more than enough time to “fulfill his Constitutional duties”…. like the Miss Universe Contest…. Obama needs to be tossed out. As Romney was runner-up in this contest – please please put him in to lead our country. He was right about everything he said. Putin and Obama definitely have something in common – Obama as a rad. Muslim – never helped Israel – will the WORLD stand by while Putin goes after Jews, AGAIN?

I’m not aware of the distinction between “liberals” and “conservatives,” but if liberals are the ones who spend all the money, then I hate them too. They’re always expecting these entitlements – like the last 15 years of war with Afghanistan and Iraq. That cost us about $8 T (yes trillion) and what did we get for it? Nada. These liberals think we are entitled to wars every decade, but they have no idea where the money comes from – you and me. We need a President who is willing to surgically take out the terrorists with drones and seals… Read more »

“West then fired his pistol near Hamoodi’s head,[16] after which Hamoodi provided West with names and information, which Hamoodi later described as “meaningless information induced by fear and pain.”[16] At least one of these suspects was arrested as a result, but no plans for attacks or weapons were found.[16] West said “At the time I had to base my decision on the intelligence I received.

Mr. West where was your cry of indignation during the Georgia / South Ossetia invasion? Why don’t you even mention that here? Obama is actually quite busy sending missiles in to kill Muslims suspected of Al Qaeda affiliations and any of the children or hapless villages who happen to be close by.

Operatives from Hamas and Hezbollah look Mexican— it’s excellent trade craft for the infiltration of our borders by significant numbers of soldiers. The Mexicans infiltrating our borders, well, they are part of a different war waged by cartels— they settle in our towns and cities, many of which have fallen under covert control by the cartels that use local banks to launder their drug revenue with a blind eye from the Fed, Treasurry and the Holder Justice Department. So, it’s both. Although I must implore Ms. Cook to ration her gin consumption. We need you to be sober! LOL

I was expecting to read Mr West explaining what he would do if he were POTUS in this current situation. Instead, all I read was Mr West saying he would never have let this happen. Nowhere in this article does Mr West actually even suggest what he would do if faced with this current situation. Saying the situation would not have happened is not saying how you would handle the situation if you were in charge. It’s very easy to say, with hindsight, how you might have handled the past… but not so easy to come up with an actual… Read more »

Brendan: The author has identified specific geopolitical strategies. Did you read the article. I realize as an Obama fan that you are used to zero substance coming out the end of a Black man’s pen. But Colonel West is privvy to far more foreign policy training because of his career in the US military officer corps. Obama doesn’t have any experience of any kind in that area of governing the nation and our alliances. Surely you’ve read the label on the Obama “brand” by now.

Brendan
Guest

I am not an Obama fan and bringing Obama into this is just an attempt at changing the subject.

I read the article.
He offered vague ideas for how he would have somehow intimidated Putin from ever creating the Ukraine crisis in the first place, but no actual suggestions for what he would do for what is happening now in the Ukraine.

When Mr West wrote, “Here’s what I would do about Ukraine” you would expect him to follow that by actually saying what he would do about Ukraine.

Sorry kid. I didn’t vote for Obama.

Brendan: Check yours. Here is the example AGAIN: “. As the situation exists today, I would have immediately, after Putin’s Ukraine aggression, reinstated the missile defense shield”.

Part of our problem- those who do not agree with obama’s policies, yet are nonetheless seeking truth and alternatives- is that often times that truth is inconvenient for those who prefer to adhere to blind rhetoric. This chiaroscuro (black & white) dichotomy of the good guy-bad guy /commie-republican freedom fighter, no longer applies to the complexities of modern society. Many will find this *an inconvenient truth* because it does not align with whatever propaganda they are swallowing.

You’re irrelevant. Russian aggression needn’t be tolerated. Putin is taking it to the United States under Obama because he can. The Russian code of law prior to the rise of the Soviet is irrelevant to Putin’s geopolitical strategy. He wants the Ukraine and is using the Crimea as a launch point for bringing this about.and soon. He realizes that Obama is limp. And he needs to shore up his stranglehold on Europe’s natural gas market with Israel and the US about to become net exporters of both in the next two years. That would spell the end of Putin’s government… Read more »

TY66: Your question reflects how underinformed you are and perhaps under the influence of the disinformation campaign by the Muslim Brotherhood— a creation of the Grand Mufti, Hitler’s Arab ally during World War II, and supporter of the final solution against the Jews around the world. The Muslim Brotherhood is an *ideological* organization dedicated to the overthrow of Western civilization and the installation of a world caliphate organized around the precepts of sharia law.

Here’s what we heard during a “hot mic” moment from the current occupant of the White House telling Russia: “I’ll have more flexibility after the election”.
Translation: You have nothing to worry about, Russia.

Unfortunately Allen, NATO and our treaty with them would “fall by the wayside” if Obama is called on to stand with them.

Would anyone on the COMMUNISTA left really say different? Wait…..and see !!

You got that right. I’ll say 1 thing for Putin, he doesn’t want them in his country. That’s probably why he says he is “protecting Russians”. The brotherhood is in Europe, way too close to Russia. Never thought I’d see Putin smarter than the the president of the USA.

Obama can be extremely brutal, but only with those 9 months old or less. He can also be extremely intimidating, threatening and will always follow up as long it’s Americans or Israelis he is attacking. He is at peace with our enemies and craves/grovels for their approval while being at war with America and surrounding Israel with it’s worst enemies. It makes his job a lot easier. Thank God his mother-in-law raised his children. He would be giving away all their possessions to the GoodWill for a star on his evil forehead.

Muslims are destroyed by their own religious training. The GDP of any Muslim country for centuries proves this absolutely. They are mentally disabled from accomplishing anything but being angry, aggrieved and feeling entitled to that which does not belong to them. I get it. I’d be just as angry as being part of group as losing and heathen as the Muslims. And it is no wonder they have found a home in the Democrat Party along with every other heathen, thieving, slothful group of people.
