Russia Exploits Obama’s Weaknesses To Destroy US Global Dominance

Russia yet again shows its contempt for U.S. President Barack Obama, while building plans on how to best exploit his weaknesses and softness in the next 17 months, according to an American political expert.

Russia Exploits Obama's Weaknesses To Destroy US Global Dominance

Russian President Vladimir Putin showed how much he despises Obama by sending his agents into Estonia and kidnapping an Estonian security official last fall, just two days after Obama’s visit to the Baltic country, wrote Charles Krauthammer, an American political writer and Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist.

And just last week, after a long closed trial, Russia sentenced the kidnapped official to 15 years in jail. When ordering his agents to kidnap the Estonians official, Putin was certain that Obama would not even move his finger about it, Krauthammer wrote in his opinion piece for The Washington Post.

And when ordering Russian court to sentence the official to 15 years, Putin doesn’t expect any critical response from the Obama administration either. Putin has already developed a list of what he can do and what we can’t do. And frankly, the list of what he can do is much longer, and Putin keeps on adding new plans to it.

And why wouldn’t he? Putin has got another 17 months of Obama’s term to exploit his weaknesses and wreak havoc in the geopolitical order.

This is why Putin loves working with Obama

There are at least three indications why Putin feels so brazen about violating international rules and agreements, according to Krauthammer.

Firstly, Putin got extremely motivated after Obama had given thumbs up to Russia’s decree to lift the ban to deliver its S-300 anti-missile systems to Iran. Obama then explained his lack of concern by saying that it wasn’t ‘technically’ illegal and that he was “frankly surprised” by Putin’s patience with this decision.

Secondly, Obama’s concession in dropping the conventional-weapons and ballistic-missile embargoes, after Russian delegation backed Iran’s demands at the nuclear program negotiations.

And lastly, Putin’s annexation of Crimea and the subsequent invasion of Ukraine. And while Russia signed the Minsk ceasefire agreement in February this year, Russian troops still swarm eastern Ukraine.

Obama, in his turn, vowed to supply the Ukrainian government with lethal weapons to counter the Russian threat in case Russia doesn’t comply with the agreement. Clearly seeing that Putin continues to send his troops and heavy weaponry into the region, Obama still refuses to consider supplying Kyiv with lethal aid.

And while most military experts agree that such hesitation and inactivity from the Obama administration is illogical and poses a great threat to European security as well as the world’s security as a whole, some experts argue that supplying lethal weapons to the Ukrainian government would only provoke Putin to unleash an all-out war.

Krauthammer notes that since the Russian aggression in Eastern Europe began, regional states have been asking NATO to station its permanent bases in the region in order to guarantee a rapid response to any Russian aggression.

U.S.-led NATO has refused to do it. Instead, Obama offered to carry out military drills in the Baltics and Poland, while deploying 250 tanks and armored vehicles that would be distributed among seven NATO members.

US cannot guarantee Western security anymore – thanks to Obama

Since the World War II ended, Russia has learned that the United States was the sole guarantor of Western security, according to the expert. However, Obama’s ‘naivete’ and ‘ambivalence’ have put those guarantees in question.

The expert reminds that Obama’s presidency began with the ‘reset’ policy toward Russia. After 4 years of ‘reset’ relations between Moscow and Washington, “a still clueless” Obama laughed at his 2012 presidential election opponent Mitt Romney for saying that Russia is “without question our No. 1 geopolitical foe,” Krauthammer recalls.

Obama then tried to be funny and told Romney: “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.” He added that “the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

“Turned out it was 2015 calling,” Krauthammer noted. Obama has himself appointed top defense officials that have been repeatedly repeating Mitt Romney’s words over and over again about Russia being the “greatest” threat to U.S. national security. Obama’s own secretary of defense went as far as saying that “Russia poses an existential threat to the United States.”

Had only Obama known in 2012 that the only thing that was funny in Romney’s words is that Russia is not just a ‘number one geopolitical foe’ of the U.S., it is rather an ‘existential’ threat to the U.S.

Russia’s plan to resume Cold War

The expert also notes that Putin plans to revive Cold War. And Obama’s miscalculation and his wrong interpretation of Russia’s actions and statements have led to the shift of the balance of power.

With great plans to take over the Middle East with its weapons, Russia has engaged in talks with the president of Egypt, a country of whom didn’t want to deal with Russia for 40 years. The president of the former major ally of the U.S. in the Middle East has visited Moscow two times in the last four months, Krauthammer notes.

Saudi Arabia, in its turn, is planning to purchase Russian weapons as a replacement of U.S. weapons. Meanwhile, Iran, an enemy of the Saudis, is awaiting the delivery of the S-300 anti-missile systems by the end of 2015.

Even Pakistan, a historical adversary of Russia, is buying Putin’s Mi-35 helicopters. But that’s the least of U.S. concerns, as there are clear indications of the emergence of the world’s new superpower axis between Russia, Pakistan and China.

Russia has also turned to China after Western sanctions started crippling the country’s economy. And China was more than happy to obtain such an ally in order to strip U.S. of its ‘global dominant’ status.

    The real issue facing Americans is misguided foreign policy. We are aligned with Al Qaeda in Syria and Libya. We are allied with Saudi princes who cut off heads in Saudi Arabia and were involved with 9/11. We are allied with [email protected] in Ukraine who have killed over 7,000 innocent women, children and elderly people. We are allied with Shiite Mullahs in Iraq. We just gave $540 million worth of military humvees and tanks away to ISIS who we also indirectly financed through the Saudis and Turks. A month ago we were all about saving the Kurds then all of a sudden last week we let the Turks bomb them into oblivion. Our NATO bombing campaigns have caused a massive refugee crisis of millions in Syria, Libya and our Saudi “friends” just killed thousands with bombs that look like they may have been nuclear. Our Israeli “friends” killed 5,000 innocent civilians Gaza residents including women and children in one massive bombing campaign using huge J-DAMS on city blocks on July 17th last year…..the very day that MH-17 was shot down……and our media covers it all up. Think about that. When empires crumble they go to war and all these proxy wars mean we are in the last days of the US empire. They media just does the bidding of it’s money masters and feeds the propaganda to the duped masses. Don’t let them take you for a fool.

  • Cut To The Chase

    Putin is the stupidest man on the planet. You see, that petrol based economy was based on a manipulated market that helped 3rd world countries, like Russia, develop and diversify their economies under globalization. There was never an oil shortage! Oil has been pushed under $50 per barrel by the US/Saudis as as direct result of Putin’s comical display of his personal needs for power, control and wealth at any cost and by way of force and other “uncivilized” means. I really can’t believe how stupid the Russian people are, but they are subject to his juvenile propaganda techniques that have fooled the Russian people over and over again. But, lets “Cut To The Chase”!. The world is not ready for globalization and Putin, with other BRIC members, have clearly demonstrated their “long term” goals that are not what the rest of the world considers “civilized”. Therefore, this is the first major step towards putting “globalization” on ice until those that do not embrace the concept of a “civilized” society are gone, gone gone! We are looking at decades before this is attempted again and oil will be held at commodity prices for at least a decade, if not decades to come.

    Imperial Geopolitics: Ukraine, Georgia and the New Cold War between NATO and Russia

    Zbigniew Brzezinski’s book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand current and future U.S., EU and NATO policy. Over ten years ago the former National Security Advisor gave a graphic description of the imperatives of imperial geopolitics. He argued that the U.S.A.’s position of supremacy should be preserved under all circumstances. To this end NATO, acting as a “bridgehead” of the U.S.A., should expand into Eurasia and take control of geostrategically important regions so as to prevent Russia’s resurgence as a powerful political force.

    Brzezinski had in mind two countries or regions in particular: “Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard is a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia. Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire. Russia without Ukraine can still strive for imperial status, but it would then become a predominantly Asian imperial state, more likely to be drawn into debilitating conflicts with aroused Central Asians, who would then be supported by their fellow Islamic states to the south.” […] “However, if Moscow regains control over Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as access to the Black Sea, Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia.“1 Brzezinski argued further that there was an imperative need to gain control of the southern Caucasus, i.e. Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, on Russia’s southern flank. The past master of U.S. geopolitics set out the aim and purpose of NATO policy with impressive clarity: “The United States and the NATO countries – while sparing Russia’s self-esteem to the extent possible, but nevertheless firmly and consistently – are destroying the geopolitical foundations which could, at least in theory, allow Russia to hope to acquire the status as the number two power in world politics that belonged to the Soviet Union.”

    +1, you know what’s really going on. Most Americans completely miss what is really happening and buy all the media propaganda.

  • Zeitgeisttruthteller

    True, but it was Zbigniew Brzezinski who mentored Obama and drew up the policy that worked for both Republicans and Democrats. They are both one in the same warmongers.

    To see the largest video archive of the war showing 170 videos of the Ukrainian Civil War and show you that the US government and media is mercilessly covering up the ethnic cleansing of the civilian ethnic Russian population of the former East Ukraine and that that ethnic cleansing is being conducted by the new coup imposed Kiev regimes fascist pro-Nazi battalions.

    Simply type into Google ” Live Leak In Between Days”

    The videos shows the Right Sector fascist battalions blowing apart women, children and old people…..so be forewarned. It is highly graphic material. All the victims of the slaughter are ethnic Russian Ukrainian civilians in the East. Russia is not the aggressor. The Kiev regime are the terrorists. Hence the reason 1.3 million refugees fled TO RUSSIA.

    The videos prove that Kiev lies and Russia tells the truth. All the false flags are covered there in depth….on video. Including plenty of MH-17 video never before seen.

  • Zeitgeisttruthteller

    Here’s an easy way to tell that most of these stories are part of an obvious anti-Russia propaganda campaign fueled by Washington and Brussels, think about the pilots body on MH-17. That body is the key piece of evidence yet they buried it right away with no autopsy. It holds the key to the puzzle. The fragments inside tell what hit the plane. Yet they buried it first and his wife was never even allowed to see his remains. Of course, they could also conduct forensic chemical residue analysis on the holes in the fuselage by the pilots seat and it would also tell them what type of metal entered the plane. They know. That is why they won’t tell you. They have known all along. That is why they are trying to use it to frame Russia. The US overhead satellite information shows that it was Ukraine. And they know it was intentional. That is also why they never mention the possibility that the Ukrainian Right Sector (who conducted lots of previous false flags) could have done it. They know they did. Now think about this, Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoisky controls those Right Sector battalions. He also gave Joe Bidens son, Hunter, a job at his gas company Burisma Holdings. Harpers magazine revealed last week that Kolomoisky embezzled $1.8 billion of Ukrainian IMF money to his offshore Cyprus account.

    Imagine if the man that brought down MH-17 was exposed and he was also the same man that gave the US Vice Presidents son a job. Imagine the implications? Not only that but his goons killed over 7,000 innocent ethnic Russian women, children and elderly people. They blew their arms and legs off. They blew their heads off. It has been a bloodbath and the US and EU media continue to lie and cover it all up.

  • Zeitgeisttruthteller

    Wars the US is financing and all the killing they are doing around the globe:

    Millions to Islamic jihadist warlords in Libya who have caused a massive refugee crisis in the Med and EU plus killed 40 British and Russian tourists last month in Tunisia.

    Hundreds of millions to Saudi Arabian dictators who cut off heads and hands and hang gays so that they could bomb freedom fighter in Yemen who rose up against that dictators regime. Those bombs appear to be mini nukes being used there.

    Billions to Israel who dropped over 50 J-DAM bombs on Gaza on July 17th, 2014 (the day MH-17 was shot down) killing over 5,000 innocent people and destroying 30 city blocks.

    Hundreds of million to the Ukrainian fascist regime and the Right Sector National Guard battalion, plus direct training and overt military support even though those [email protected] battalions have killed over 7,000 innocent ethnic Russian civilians on camera (as easily proven by Googling the video archive using the terms “Live Leak In Between Days”. there are over 160 videos in that archive. All from 2014. All show the victims that the US media are intentionally covering up.

    Hundreds of millions funneled to Saudi Arabia and Turkey to indirectly finance Daesh, ISIS, AL Nusra Front against the Syrian government.

    Hundreds of millions to Turkey for NATO even though Turkey just bombed the Kurds who the US previously stated they were trying to protect.

    Billions to the Mullahs in Iraq who just lost $540 million worth of Hummvees and tanks to ISIS who the US also indirectly finances through Saudi Arabia.

    Who are ISIS and why did you never hear about them before the 2013 false flag chemical weapons attack in Syria? They are former Al Qaeda and Sunni Iraqis who the US promised to support if they attacked the Assad regime.

    Why did they turn on the US allies in Iraq? Because the US did not follow through on supporting them in the false flag chemical weapons attack. The British parliament (under pressure form the people) and Russian president Putin stopped the full scale Syrian war that the US wanted. Now the US is trying a new strategy by aligning with the forces that brought the US 9/11. Like Ukraine, it is also backfiring.

    There is nothing you can do to ‘prevent Russia from being great nuclear power ‘. In case you’ve missed past 50 years or so, Russia IS a great nuclear power.

    So Obama’s weakness is that he refuses to put us into stupid conflicts that have little to no gain for the U.S.? Haha well I guess strength and stupidity really do go hand in hand. We are not the worlds policemen. Why isn’t he complaining to the Germans the French or the Nigerians about Ukraine or Ethiopia. If I’m not mistaken they all have just as much to with each other as the U.S. Does. Second as far as weapon sales did you ever consider that maybe some of the weaponry we sell sucks? We do have good equips but frankly none of that is allowed to be sold in case it’s used against us. Obama does have some big weaknesses but the topics he listed aren’t part of them.

    The author is wrong. Obama may have indeed a few weakness (and letting
    Assad cross his chemical red line with impunity was a big mistake) but
    he is a much better leader than Putin can ever dream to be. He has
    excellent strategic vision and Putin has none. that’s why Russia is
    strategically stuck in Ukraine, under heavy economic sanctions and
    having nowhere to go. He cant retreat from Ukraine, because of fear of
    being seen as a loser and he can’t move further for fear of heavier
    economic sanctions. Moreover, China, Russia and Pakistan were always
    going to pack together one day or the other, as some kind of axe of
    evil, irrespective of having a republican or a democrate at the white
    house. Obama is wining the fight against Putin. Maybe not by ko, but the russian is taking a beating virtually at every round and we don’t see how the
    Russian can ever turn the tide. Obama made a few mistakes but overall is doing a fine job. A much better job anyway than George W Bush.
