We are so screwed, Russia is taking what they want, and Obama is picking out his March Madness Brackets.
That's the story covered in his State run Media, when they are not reporting the plane was taken by aliens or fell into a black hole.
If Russia wants to they can take anything they want , no one is going to lift a hand to stop them, in fact we took out all stops when the King took over in 2009.
Maybe they want Cuba again too, can you see Obama stopping them like JFK did ? even from the same office holding the same power as JFK did.
I feel were are set to defend ourselves on our own.
We have no stomach to do nothing but say " don't do that".
All the while SoS Kerry in in Uganda trying to show that dictator where he is wrong about gays and fags.
You know Obama sent a queer delegation to Putin back before the Olympics ,to show him he was wrong about them.
All the while our leaders are bragging about downsizing our military and shoving their health care up our bum.
We are thru.

The release of the five top Taliban commanders in exchange
for one oath (of enlistment) violating GI has brought about well-publicized
celebrations of a great victory by the Taliban. Both the mainstream American
media and the foreign press are reporting this. For this to happen just as we are
preparing to disengage in Afghanistan, is tantamount to a surrender to
terrorism and more than an insult to every GI who has fought against it. It is
a betrayal of our military by its commander in chief.
One could believe that the tragedy
in Benghazi was the result of incredible incompetence but this goes far beyond
incompetence. Every member of our armed forces from its commanders on down have
just been told that duty, honor, and discipline are all for naught. What is any
soldier to think if the man next to him can’t be counted on and won’t be held
accountable for failing to do so?
If this doesn’t bite BO in the ass, then
nothing will and all is lost.

This is an interesting if confusing
development. I thought that the Benghazi incident was a peaceful demonstration
that, instigated by an anti-Muslim video, got out of hand. What was this guy’s
role? Did he run the projector? Of course, the AK47’s and mortar tubes were
just something that peace loving Libyans (who by the way, live in a stable country) just happened to
have with them. Who would have thought that such a trite issue could have led
to so much death and destruction?
Then there’s Iraq. The obvious
solution to the situation there is for Obama to convince al-Maliki to institute
gun controls. If it were illegal to own guns in Iraq, the violence and
senseless killing would end immediately and U.S. military action wouldn’t be
needed. Then the two religious factions could sit down together and work things
out peaceably. After all, isn’t it well known that religious people are willing
to compromise their faith so that they can live in peace with the Devil? What’s
eternity in hell if we can just have a little peace in this life? With man’s
ability and willingness to reason, it seems obvious that the road to peace is

Thank you Copper. Since no one else had commented, I was beginning to think that everyone took me seriously. (Maybe no one reads the first three threads anymore?)

The assessment of the US and the UN seem a little different:
So far, I haven't heard an explanation for this. The US says that most of those trapped on the mountain have already escaped and the rest are okay. The UN says the situation on the mountain is still critical. The UN is also talking about the large number of refugees elsewhere in Iraq but the discrepancy makes one wonder if they are sharing information. Is the US version a ploy to convince ISIS that they are wasting their effort or to convince the folks back home that the US doesn't really need to get more involved? I can guess what some will think.

Day one: Sec of Defense and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs - ISIS is our biggest threat, can't be beaten without hitting them in Syria.
Day two: Chairman of the Joint Chiefs - ISIS is not a direct threat to the U.S. Won't recommend bombing in Syria yet.
Atta boy guys. Keep'em guessing!

Found this article:
The question is, "If the radicals are really radicals, why aren't there tens of millions crying out against them."

From day one there have been contradictions between what Obama has been saying and what military folks at the highest levels were saying. Does that mean that there is an argument between them in which case Gen. Dempsey had better have his retirement plans sorted out? Or, is this an administration ploy designed to give the president an "it's not my fault" excuse for having to give in on the use of ground forces in the fight against ISIS? If the former, we can expect a shake up at the Pentagon. If the later, it demonstrates ineptness on the part of the president and, if the ploy works, on the part of his supporters.
The president should have worked out the military needs of the mission with his military advisors and he should have established his coalition behind closed doors before he announced any kind of strategy to the public. He should have left as many details as possible to the imagination of ISIS. His "it's not my fault" excuse would be just as valid (if that's possible) and he would look more like he thought this through to everyone involved. Is it a regional problem to be solved by Syria, Iraq, and their neighbors or is it a global problem needing a global solution? Al Jazeera has an article titled "Obama's unstrategic strategy." Probably a lot of folks are wondering just what he can reasonably expect to happen soon or after November the 4th.
