Present, tense…

Well, I think it is pretty safe to say Putin has taken the measure of the west and determined that it poses him no threat.

Oh, I am sure we will make all sorts of scary sounding statements and someone will bring up the Budapest Memorandum, but Putin knows that no one has the nerve to rush in and start a conflict over Ukraine.

Of course even an idiot like me can have an opinion, and I could be wrong. But I don’t think I am wrong here. Putin is crazy-crazy and he knows everyone else knows it. He knows Obama is a cream puff. I would say there is only a 2-3% chance anyone will call Putin on it.

Now, when was the last time you remember someone invading another country in Europe-East? Did that end well? Did they promise it would be only the one time and it really was love? And that they wouldn’t do it again if everyone went along with it?

That China has immediately jumped on the bandwagon signals a sea change that surprises no one who pays attention.
On a friend’s office window. We will refer to her as “Major Headache”. She would appreciate that humor. She too gets migraines and agrees with me that a migraine is basically a slurpee tumor (brain freeze) like the worst you ever had that does not go away. For days.

Russia sends attack choppers to Syria.

AP – The Obama administration said Tuesday that Russia is sending attack helicopters to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime and warned that the Arab country’s 15-month conflict could become even deadlier.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. was “concerned about the latest information we have that there are attack helicopters on the way from Russia to Syria.”

In a test of wills between Putin and Obama I see Putin outclassing our president by a huge margin.  The only way O will have enough balls to go head to head with Putin is if Hillary loans him her set.


Update:  It now appears to be turning into a pushy-pushy name-calling match.  Each side swears that they wouldn’t ever never supply weapons to any faction in Syria.  MMM-mmm, yeah I guess I buy that.
