>Russian Hypocrasy and Tunnel Vision
We’re only two and one-half months from the general elections and presumptive Democratic candidate Barak Obama has already taken enough flak to take down a B-29 that bombed Japan twice to end World War II. The world hopes it doesn’t take atomic weapons to take down the terrorists in Afghanistan and the nuclear facility Iran is preparing deep in an Iranian bunker.
Russia is now selling the Iranians anti missile/bomb detection and destroy war materiale to take down any warship that flys over Iran’s borders. At the same time they tell the world Poland shouldn’t have that kind of missile defense capability. The two-faced Russians are always in on any deceit and deception throughout the world–in an effort to extend Russia’s theater of influence. Russia has a kind of inferiority complex–has had since 1991 when their economy imploded and they lost their satellite nations–nations Putin calls his “near-abroad”–in the Baltic and Caucasus, countries like Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Georgia, and the Ukraine.
If it takes a B-29 type plane to knock out Iran’s nuc capability it will likely be the new B-2 Spirit, the Air Force’s top-of-the-line, nuclear-capable stealth bomber plane. Let’s hope Iran starts making concessions and agreeing with the west on this one so that no one sees bombing a necessity to eliminate nuclear proliferation.
Meanwhile, Republicans believe Barak will be too busy answering charges leveled against him in the above cartoon–especially of “no national security experience (despite Biden’s presence. Biden can’t be on the phone with him every minute of the day, when he talks to Putin who will try to manipulate the inexperienced Obama. Sooner or later he will get America in trouble with his lack of military knowledge, lack of economic experience, and lack of good judgment. His mouth is larger than his gigantic ears. He would be well advised to listen more and speak less).
