The End of Vladimir Putin
Politico, by Ben Judah

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/1/2014 5:25:21 AM

When rebel crosshairs fixed on Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 30,000 feet above the sunflowers of Eastern Ukraine, they had no idea what they were about to blow up. No clue they were about to incinerate hundreds of Dutch holidaymakers. None whatsoever they were about to wreck a decade of the Kremlin’s finest diplomacy—years of cleverly preventing the Americans from building a united Western front by playing divide and rule amongst the Europeans. The rebels blew up more than a plane. They blew up Russia’s winning position in Brussels against sanctions. Europeans like to think they play games with others, but the

There is only ONE thing these Control freaks care about. Who gets to RULE THE WORLD! They care nothing about how many people they kill...just how many leaders and nations they can take out so they can RULE THE WORLD! This is what it´s been like from the beginning of the creation of man and it´s this way now. This is why you see such evil, murder, confusion and chaos. The heart of man is despicably evil

Bee Ess. Most countries, especially European, are more afraid of Vladimir Putin than ever and realize that their hero brackobama lost his position as a player on the world scene a long time ago. Putin is the new kid on the block, get used to it.

A recent article I read asked that, after 15 years in power, who has Putin attacked, bombed or invaded?

A close associate of Putin was asked about the Yukos court decision. Response: "There is a war coming in Europe…..Do you really think this matters?"

Keynesians believe war creates prosperity. More like buries the sins of the past.

"Cui bono?" "Who benefits?"

While the first part of the article is educational, I´m not sure I agree with the conclusion.

I´m in the middle of "Truman" by McCullough, and just read how even back then, the Russians viewed indecision and inaction as weakness. Putin is still running things, and the EU will continue to fear him.

IMO, Obama is a Russian operative. On "ALL THESE ISSUES". What issues? He has never even been asked.

Obama: "On ALL THESE ISSUES, but particularly missile defence, this, this can be solved but it´s important for him to give me space."

Mr Medvedev replies: "Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you …"

Mr Obama retorts: "This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility."

And Mr Medvedev finishes: "I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir [Putin]."

Ah yes, hope springs eternal. There is only one thing wrong with this analysis: Putin and his gang of thugs play the game to win. Economic sanctions from the West? Merely a temporary setback requiring a new direction/alternate strategies for their relentless assault on order and power in the world. Look at the picture of Putin next to the article: that is the face of a determined and dedicated chess player, for whom victory is the only option, no matter the cost or means required to obtain it. Now go find pictures of Merkel, Cameron, Obummer, and Kerry and ask yourself: "who´s gonna win???"

So.... what are the worlds countries doing to hasten Putin´s end, why they are rioting against and killing Jews. Its hard to believe anything coming from most of Europe, Washington DC and of course Muslim countries these days.

What is our Muslim leader doing about the situation... why reducing our Military and importing hundred of thousands of diseased people from down south. How about helping California out with the drought. Deport all illegals and solve the problem. What, the EPA hasn´t thought about that yet?

Putin, he´s got oil, natural gas, crops and Europe does business with him.

Anytime Russia want to trade what they´ve got for what we´ve got I´m all for it. Both are heartless murdering communists who care nothing for the lives of the people they misgovern. But one has gonads and the other a teleprompter. One hunts big game and the other knocks balls into holes. One makes things happen and the other has go fers who find out when PMSNBC tells them. One is a leader and the other is lead by his handlers.

The author thinks along the same lines as a friend who has lived in Russia for the last 20 years. Putin knows how to use money to get what he wants from the corrupt oligarchs in Russia and the EC. But much like Obama, Putin is clueless about how wealth is created and about what it takes to make a modern economy thrive. He also is saddled with a shrinking and increasingly cynical population in which the young dream of emigrating.

I guess we will see.

There is an awful lot of speculation and wishful thinking in this article. It expects European leaders to have fortitude. That´s a oxymoron. It speculates that Russian money men will dump Putin. But such men have many options to get what they want, including pushing Putin to do what they want.

The US will NOT provide useful pressure on Russia. BO is too incompetent for that and his nature is to believe the US should keep out of the world´s business because it is a bad influence. Any actions BO takes will be solely based on needed political actions. If he is seen a too weak, dems may suffer at the polls. Blowing an airliner up is not something that can be ignored so BO does "something". But he has no long term plan or goal and therefore the effectiveness is very limited. BO is too bored to be in it for the long haul with people who don´t bow down to him.

The author of this article seems to have forgotten that the Russians are master chess players. So, I don´t cross Putin off by any means. He will find a way to quickly bounce back. And since he controls a massive amount of energy resources that Europe desperately needs, he still has the upper hand. If sanctions become too hard, then energy supplies will come scarce. Guess who will win that scuffle. And of course, as already stated, don´t look for Obozo to do much of anything. He doesn´t know how.

#15 seems closest: it is Uncertainty upon Uncertainty all the way down. The infinite tower of turtles makes a better fable.

Russia has big troubles so Putin has big troubles. But they have great resources.

Demography. Russia is running out of Russians. The concept that its tanks and troops might blitz Europe and occupy significant lands is utter nonsense. War, if it comes, will not resemble that.

Economics. Western sanctions hurt Russia. They also hurt the West. Putin has already turned East and will weaken sanctions by deals with China and others who don´t care a fig about the Ukraine matter.

More about Economics: The days when the West controlled the best or only technology are rapidly waning. Russia can and will get replacements from other sources.

The West still leads in technology and expertise for developing oil and gas but we hold no monopoly.

I seriously doubt the EU is all "Mad" at Pooty.

I think they are actually rather afraid of him now. He has shown a lot of moxie and was totally not afraid to sneer at Øbama. His laughter over the Europeans trying to look like tough guys with his remark about gas was very telling. Europe is a resource poor area and Putin has what they need. In a crunch, they will quickly drop their pants for him. Øbama has single handedly made it so the U.S> is not a factor anymore and that alone should freak the Europeans out- a lot! Like brown stained undie freaking out.

Newly inaugurated Afghan President Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai is expected to sign a vital security deal Tuesday to allow American soldiers to remain in the country past the end of the year, officials say. A senior Defense Department official confirmed to Fox News that the new president will sign the Bilateral Security Agreement allowing for 9,800 U.S. troops to remain in Afghanistan after 2014. The president also is expected to sign a NATO Status of Forces Agreement, which will allow a small NATO force to stay on as well.

As Eric Holder prepares to leave as attorney general, there is a fierce debate over his six-year tenure. Many conservative senators who voted to confirm him in 2009 now regret it. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, now zings Holder’s “lack of respect for Congress, the American taxpayer, and the laws on the books.” Even some of his supporters agree he’s been confrontational and polarizing.

On ‘60 Minutes,’ the president faulted his spies for failing to predict the rise of ISIS. There’s one problem with that statement: The intelligence analysts did warn about the group. Nearly eight months ago, some of President Obama’s senior intelligence officials were already warning that ISIS was on the move. In the beginning of 2014, ISIS fighters had defeated Iraqi forces in Fallujah, leading much of the U.S. intelligence community to assess they would try to take more of Iraq. But in an interview that aired Sunday evening, the president told 60 Minutes that the rise of the group now proclaiming itself

To understand why revitalizing Detroit will be difficult, consider the response to the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department’s (DWSD) recent plan to make overdue customers pay their bills. The DWSD serves more than 4 million customers across the Detroit region. The suburbs mostly buy water from the DWSD wholesale, so it’s mainly city residents and businesses who get billed directly, and over half of them—about 90,000 customers—haven’t paid up. Total past-due bills add up to nearly $90 million, with the average delinquent residential customer owing $540, or more than 7 months’ worth of service, based on an average bill of

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character.

“People say I’m a pretty good kid. Why, in a country as rich as America, should I have to go to bed hungry?” So goes the Feeding America campaign of “public-service announcements,” which since 2008 have proven more popular than all the other Ad Council “Don’t” campaigns (Don’t start forest fires, Don’t bully, Don’t eat paint.?.?.) combined. Media programmers, especially at ad-poor online streaming outlets, run the spots continuously. That’s partly because, paradoxically, they imply an upscale ad environment: The production values are Tiffany-grade; the spots feature A-list celebs like Matt Damon, Paula Deen and Beyoncé, etc. Plus, they deliver an emotional punch that

Last week was good for environmentalists, and perhaps even for the environment. President Obama doubled down on his effort to increase the likelihood of the success of the 2015 UN climate change conference in Paris, claiming the U.S. has “a special responsibility to lead. That’s what great nations do.” He took the occasion of the UN meetings in New York to put the heat on China, the world’s largest polluter, to match the steps the U.S. is taking to reduce its CO2 emissions. The president is relying on executive orders to by-pass Congress and put in place stricter control of

She has found a good public school for her teenage daughter. Something Ms. Francis, who is black, has not found is time to register and vote. She was unaware that the most recent mayoral election was held last November. “Life’s been busy — I’ve been trying to make that money,” Ms. Francis said one morning this month from her two-car garage, where she was micromanaging

CNN Poll: Tight Louisiana Senate

Washington -- As Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu defends her U.S. Senate seat in Louisiana, a new CNN/ORC International poll indicates the third-term incumbent carries a slim advantage over her closest GOP rival in the general election this November. But this is Louisiana, and the election system can be complicated. There are nine candidates -- Republicans, Democrats, and a Libertarian -- on the ballot this November, and if no candidate crosses the 50% threshold, the race moves into a December runoff between the top two contenders. Landrieu currently falls well below the 50% mark at 43% support among likely voters. Republican Rep. Bill

Relentlessly honest and deeply informed, he avoids sweeping generalizations and any hint of bigotry but never turns his eyes from the truth of the situation. If you haven’t read his recent NRO article, “The Khorosan Group Does Not Exist,” you really should. It vivisects the presidential narrative of what’s happening in the Middle East. By listing and sometimes inventing names for small Islamist splinter groups, the president, McCarthy says, is trying to rewrite reality to

Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car.

Ferguson, Mo. – A police officer has been shot in Ferguson, Missouri. Police say the shooting occurred while the officer was on patrol at the Ferguson Community Center. Tim Zoll with the Ferguson Police Department told NewsChannel 5 that the officer has been shot in the arm and transported to Barnes Jewish Hospital. The officer is expected to be okay. The suspect is described as a black male with dreadlocks. The suspect is still at large. West Florissant Ave is shut down from Chambers Rd. to I-270 in both directions.
