    BushII didn't do squat when Georgia fought Russia over the break away enclaves after making all those pretty, "We stand by you" speeches. Georgia lost it's ass and Dubya just watched. Putin could just sneer at saber rattling BushII and do as he pleased.

    BushII and his DoD Rummyfell insulted and sneered at 'old Europe' over most European nations refusing to go into Iraq. Just how is that earning respect???? BushII didn't have a Cold War situation because Russia was still recovering from it's USSR collapse.

    We 'could' a lot of things, but only a few fearmongers and Obama bashers think we are going back to a Cold War, rivalry perhaps but then again there has always been a rivalry of nations- France and England, Germany and France, Russia and Turkey, Russia and Japan...

    Oh and you ain't 'SAD' to believe Obama fears Putin... you revel in it, like the warm glow after getting kicked in the nads...

    Most of it his own blood from self inflicted wounds.

    You're correct that Kerry is an American hero in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, his photograph is proudly displayed on a wall next to Jane (Hanoi) Fonda and others who gave aid and comfort to North Vietnam during the war.

    Putin has little respect for Obama. Obama is a pantywaist when it comes to foreign affairs.

    Putin held G.W. Bush in awe. But I'm sure Condoleezza Rice gave Bush some pointers how to deal with KGB thugs.
    I think you might have that backwards, but anyway...

    He would be. It's not about who our President is, Putin doesn't give a **** what people think about him. He's going to flex his muscles and flex Russia's power.

    How would you like Obama to deal with Putin?

    On a not serious note, this thread begs the question - Who wouldn't be afraid of this:

    She didn't say that. It was someone who thinks he's a comedian.

    The way it works, when one country demands or wants something you don't appease that country without getting something in exchange.

    Russia was quick to learn that with G.W. Bush and Bush wouldn't budge on deploying a European ABM defense umbrella in former Warsaw Pact countries to protect Europe from a ballistic missile attack from the Middle East.

    When Obama became POTUS he appeased the Russians without getting really anything in exchange and today those ground based ABM are no more and instead we have two Arleigh Burke destroyers in the Med providing that ABM umbrella for Europe.
