    If Russia pulls their ambassador to the US that is a move by Putin to further embarrass the Obama administration in front of the entire world and especially in front of our NATO allies. It is a move to underline Obama's weakness and ineffectiveness as a leader. Just this week the Obama administration was calling for more military cuts. Putin would be foolish not to be taking these steps now with such a paper tiger as Obama in the white house. Putin is just looking after Russia's best interests in the region.

    This is a perfect example of how a demonstration of weakness and lack of resolve on the part of the United States only makes the world less stable. This would have never happened when Reagan and Thatcher were leaders for the western powers. From the moment Obama took office and went on his worldwide apology tour, people like Putin were taking notes, and waiting for their moment. That moment is here.

    I don't think it is only about Iran.
    Obama's administration acted many times like amateurs.
    On each scandal that was given up in public, especially the spying issues, in every response they accepted their guiltiness and tried to cover it up with some amateur lies. No one believed what their justifications, especially Germans.
    Also, those red lines in sand were such a joke.
    Bush was bad in many parts but in foreign relations Putin would mess up with him or his red lines.
    With Obama is so another picture.

    Just not doing what I wrote above would be enough I think. Especially those fake red lines.

    Remember when Obama told Medvedev that he would have more flexibility when he got elected for a second term?

    Putin knows Obama isn't going to do a damn thing.

    Yes I would.


    There are a lot of things Obama could have done in Iran. Besides making more of an effort to destabilize Iran and bring about regime change in Iran, for one Obama and Kerry could stop treating Israel like they are the bad guys in the region.

    Iran cannot have a nuke, period. If Iran gets a nuke the Israelis may need to use one of their 200 own nukes to defend themselves, and how will that be in the interest of the United States? If Iran gets a nuke they can threaten to block the Suez canal, and how will that be the interest of anyone?

    He shouldn't have let the bad guys of the world know he's a pussy. But, he's convinced the despots of the world that he's weak and this is the by-product.
