Who's next on Putin's list?

The Ukraine?

Or will he cut straight to the chase and target Poland?

It's time to wake up, and pay attention to whom we entrust to occupy the highest office in the land, because the implications reach far beyond the obvious:

"Venezuela, Syria and Iran are aligning themselves with Russia. President Assad has said that Israeli assistance to Georgia shows that Russia and Syria should bolster military cooperation. Venezuela's Chavez is also aligning himself with the Russians. Chavez said at the weekend that Russian President Dmitri Medvedev wanted to send a Russian naval fleet to visit Venezuela and that the Russians naval fleet would be welcome in Venezuela. Venezuela has been seeking closer relations with Moscow, in part to buy military hardware, including 24 Russian Sukhoi fighter jets recently delivered.

Geopolitical risk is higher now than at any time since the end of the Cold War and looks set to remain heightened in the coming months."

Here's a hint: Obama (and Biden, as well) would clearly be in over his head regarding scenarios like this.

As well we know, Obama thinks people like Assad, Chavez, and Putin can be controlled by rhetoric, schmooze, and Obama's "star power".

What a dangerous venture that sort of thinking would set our nation upon!

  1. Putin's allies surely make up a modern day Rogues Gallery! The old axiom is so true: You are known by the company you keep. BB
