Bend Over Obam-bam, Here It Comes Again

Imagine our surprise:

Russia has vetoed a UN Security Council draft resolution that declared a planned referendum on the status of Ukraine’s Crimea region “can have no validity” and urged nations and international organisations not to recognise it.

“This is a sad and remarkable moment,” Samantha Power, the American ambassador to the United Nations, said after the vote by the 15-member Security Council.

…and completely UNEXPECTED, of course.

But not to worry, General Steiner’s counterattack, er, the threat of freezing Russian assets in the U.S. will bring this whole mess under control in no ti… What’s that?

Russian companies are pulling billions out of western banks, fearful that any US sanctions over the Crimean crisis could lead to an asset freeze, according to bankers in Moscow.

Sberbank and VTB, Russia’s giant partly state-owned banks, as well as industrial companies, such as energy group Lukoil, are among those repatriating cash from western lenders with operations in the US. VTB has also cancelled a planned US investor summit next month, according to bankers.

Eh… Nevermind then.

But just wait! Soon Der Fubar’s Secret Wunderwaffen will be ready for deployment and Final Victory will be ours!!!

Also, from our dear sestrichka Nicki, some thoughts on just exactly what’s going on in Putin’s mind. Well worth reading.

Thatisall.

    Next the Baltic states and then Poland. I wonder what the Kerry will say when the Russians are rolling through Germany and heading for his Beloved France?

    Why, first he would get a sad expression, and then he’d remind Putin that there would be COSTS associated with conquering all of Western Europe.

    Then he’d write him a STERNLY WORDED LETTER!

    Finally, he would go yachting and remind people the geopolitical realities were very complex, put himself in for 3 medals for valor based upon the rope-burn he got hauling in the main sheet, and have a nap.

    Displays of pathetic weakness like this are leaving us open to… bad… BAD things. It encourages our enemies and their proxies to become aggressive, and then we can look forward to shit like this:

    Nightmare scenario? Barry-The-Worst encourages idiots like the Norks or the Muzzies to pull something like an EMP. Hell, part of me thinks that worthless mongrel in the White House actually WANTS something like that to happen.

    (PS: To head off any potential accusations of hating black people – I hate Princess-Drone-Kills WHITE half.)

    That could, if properly placed, knock out Big Gov (& Big Media), put an end to Wreck-It Barack’s misadministration, & leave us Flyover types to pick up the pieces. Yay us! :em01:

    Nope, EMP attacks are wide area, as in continental effects, attacks, the only ones who would not be seriously hurting would be the Amish.

    Has Buttplug Barry considered offering Putin a free phone and EBT card? Or what about having ACORN thugs camp out on his front lawn?

    And once again, the clueless wonder can’t figure out why his Marx inspired Delusion’s aren’t working in the real world. His words should stop Putin.

    I wonder if it’s before or after the now nuked up MH370 hits its target.

    God help me, I hope I’m WRONG.

    AFAIK there has never been one,, leaving us all to speculate on the basis of incidental effects observed half a century ago. Among unknowns would be target, weapon & delivery system. Limited goals may prove easier for actors w/limited resources.

    Russia can turn US to radioactive ash: Kremlin backed journalist (Lot of good that “Reset” did, Hillary!)

    And the Chicoms can’t? Next Comrade Chiseloff will brag that only Russia has the capability to drink itself to death!
