Showdown in the Ukraine….JFK vs obama
When I awoke this morning the light snow that was falling last night had stopped and was replaced by bright sunlight and mild temperatures. Later as I savored my first caffeine fix of the day my mind snapped it’s hazy focus to a laser pinpoint when it heard news that obama had once again acted unilaterally by implementing executive orders to apply economic sanctions on Russia. Could it be that obama read my blog about the emperor with no clothes?
Many decades ago when I was just a young man in high school President Kennedy stood toe to toe with Russia telling them to remove their missiles from Cuba. Kennedy placed our nations military on full alert, and as far as anyone knew we could be at war in a short time. However Russia blinked first and I remember watching the evening news when it broadcast film showing a Russian ship, carrying missiles removed from Cuba, being escorted by US destroyers and thinking our President indeed meant what he said.
Today when the Russian government learned that obama used his executive orders to financially try and hurt their country, it went into session to enact a new policy that would allow Russia the power to take over any American companies doing business in Russia. Not not quite the same thing as being told to get their missiles out of Cuba, but the end result, a nuclear confrontation, could still be the result of our current crisis.
When you put the former head of the KGB whose proven respect for life is not a high priority
toe to toe with a man who thinks we are too tough illegals and terrorists in Guantanamo,
just who do you think would win.
