A new cold war?
Is our Nobel Peace Prize-winning president, Barack H. Obama, planning to start a new cold war or World War III with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the Crimean Peninsula, part of Ukraine in the Black Sea, ports that the Russians have used for years?
After all, it is not in our hemisphere, yet the United States attacked Iraq (during the Bush administration) based on lies about weapons of mass destruction (the real reason was to use our military as mercenaries for the oil companies to get control of Iraqs oil output to control the prices).
Iraq is in Russias backyard, and President Putin didnt interfere!
Last September, Vladimir Putin stopped President Obama from attacking Syria over the use of chemical weapons in the war Syrian President Bashar Assad (didnt start) was accused of using against the Central Intelligence Agency-backed rebels (Al Qaeda) and Islamists in Syria.
Again, that is in Mr. Putins backyard.
Later the rebels admitted to using the chemicals (see www.infowars.com article by Paul Joseph Watson Aug. 30, 2013; they admitted responsibility for gas attack).
I give Russian President Putin credit for blocking President Obama from starting a war in Syria for the oil/gas interest in this country because oil/gas deposits are like catnip to cats.
Yet I have concerns for President Putins long-term goals; for now, I give him credit on Syria.
In Americas history of war-making, many of our elected servants keep their children in combat zones or have them in some branch of the nations military that will have active combat duty (just as George W. Bush joined the Texas Air National Guard to avoid going to Vietnam).
After all, President Bushs daughters did not go to Iraq either.
That is one of the perks of having their father being president!
