Media: Obama’s tired and demoralized team can't give a “bold answer” to Putin

57
Obama’s indecisiveness or his unwillingness to rebuff Russia, in the opinion of many American officials, speaks of the insolvency of the presidential team and the weakening of the US position on the world stage, leads RIA News opinion of columnist Politico Michael Crowley.




“The intervention of Vladimir Putin in Syria contributes to a split in Obama’s tired and sometimes demoralized national security team. Officials demanding more decisive action see how the president stubbornly refuses to take on new risks. ”- writes browser.

According to him, "Obama's two headaches in foreign policy - Russia and Syria - merged into one pulsating migraine."

“The Russian operation in Syria has forced Washington to start a brainstorming and develop new approaches, but these efforts are unlikely to work, because Obama does not want to aggravate the conflict,” Crowley said.

The frustration of supporters of tough measures has increased after a scandal over the failure of the training program for the Syrian rebels.

Some high-ranking officials and politicians, such as Pentagon chief Carter, Secretary of State Kerry and Senator McCain, are directly calling on Obama to give a “bold response” to Russia's actions in Syria. They are outraged that Washington is not opposed to the "provocations of Moscow".

“It seems that we are retreating. In fact, we can put pressure on these guys, but we act as if completely powerless, ”concludes Crowley.

      Обама элементарно начинает включать мозг. Если мозга нет, то он и не болит, как у "ястребов", по сути же — петухов безмозглых.

            Recently, they really have been giving in to something, there’s nothing to answer (apart from yapping), my opinion is that they really have nothing to answer to such swift actions (unexpectedness) of Russia, and if so, it’s necessary to put pressure even harder on all fronts (economy, politics etc)

          hi Sasha!
          США это не геморрой а раковая опухоль всего человечества дающая метастазы по всем регионам в виде "Управляемого хаоса". Опухоль "Оккупировала" всю Европу, Азию и Ближний восток своими базами и периодически растёт поражая новые органы на мировом теле самое последний поражённый орган это Украина хотя к счастью для мира и для нас в частности она представляла на момент её заражения уже экономический атавизм.
          Собственно юго-восток бывшей Украины и сейчас Сирия показали, что с раковой опухолью можно бороться прижигая её распространение, главное много стран "органов" мира это увидели и очень хотят избавится от опухоли...

          Such magnificent nonsense - I have not seen for a long time! Ah ha ha !!!
          And Obama is our man, rightly doing what does not give in to the persuasion of McCain and Kerry, to see for two terms he is so full and tired of all the dirt .... What is now simply pulling. Anyway, if you don’t get in a fuss, it won’t do worse.

          "Создается впечатление что я обосрался, но это не так! Это я медленно выдавливаю" так что ли его понимать? Хотя один фиг штаны полные.... Ну и логика.

        All this fuss with exclusivity and leading role resembles an old joke ... there is a man in the mountains watching a herd grazing and a shepherd sitting on a stone and playing chess with a ram ... the man became interested and the shepherd
        - So how is it?
        Shepherd .. sheep he is a sheep ..
        man, what score?
        Shepherd - 2-2.

        Так и Россия простите "изолированная с порванной в хлам экономикой диктаторским режимом заснкционированная в дюпель" но счет 2-2

    Политика - искусство возможного. В случае с Сирией у Обамы выбор можду плохим и худшим (для поддержания гегемонии США). Поэтому не стоит его судить столь строго. У тех кто кричит о его "неспособности" просто нет реальной власти. А так хочется...

    Партия войны (республиканцы) в США сильна, но всё упирается в Обаму и стоящих за ним демократов которые понимают, что если перегнуть палку в отношении "смелого ответа" России то это грозит мировой войной. Если на следующих выборах в США победит представитель республиканцев (подобие Маккейна) вероятность войны возростёт многократно.

    Для того, чтобы не мучиться всякими болезненными симптомами, надо жить по-совести и не стряпать закулисные игры. Борешься с террористами, так борись реально, а не имитируй. Вот тогда ни мигрени, ни другой хрени не будет. Но вся беда в том, что он (Барак Обама) не самостоятелен в своих телодвижениях. Есть некая более действенная сила, для которой законов нет, как нет и ответственности за все проделанное. Обама лишь официальная кукла для концентрации общественного мнения. Кто-то сверху чудит, а у него чуб трещит. Надо искать тех, конечных, самых главных и незаметных руководителей процессов в американской элите, и воздействовать на нее. Или показать, что ядерный арсенал нацелен не на какой-то "Дональд Кук", а на них персонально. Тогда, возможно, появится у них желание договариваться. А сейчас для этой маленькой, но богатой кучки все население земли не повод для раздумий.

    Now, against the backdrop of impotent Obama, every American politician is trying to look like a macho man and a supporter of decisive action. The position is clearly winning and safe. You can make any warlike statements, spittle, accuse of all sins - no danger, no liability. So they try to shout down each other and get bonuses from the American electorate.

    It seems as if these people who want the United States to give Russia a firm answer there, the question is that you have nine lives like cats! Or for you to chat, this is your job! Some kind of insanity.



    Просто они в голову едят! а не думают ею! Нечем! Одного понять дебилоиды не могут, что так то "исключительным" тоже перепадет конкретно, и останутся от земли "рожки да ножки" (тьфу,тьфу, тьфу! не дай бог из за дебилоидов что случится!) Они решили что они "сохранились"!
    P.S. One thing is not clear to me ... Everyone is afraid that Syria will close the sky .. and not at all, that Syria is not the United States? What about a sovereign state? Not? We closed the sky at the request of the head of this state, but what place did they fall in? Strange people ... sick on the head ... maybe they have autumn .. aggravation?

    I wonder how they imagine a decisive answer to Putin? They had already resolutely entered the war in 1917, in 1941 and resolutely opened a second front in 1944. Their decisive answer is when they can be thrown with caps. But Vietnam was left, Cuba was left. Decisively bombed ISIS for a year. Well? What response can they take? Arrest of accounts, color revolutions ...

    А эта "супер нация" думала МИРОМ командовать? От мёртвого осла им уши! Русский мужик долго запрягает...
    And he doesn’t like it when foreign clever men indicate him. He will tolerate his fools, but NEVER!

    “It seems that we are retreating. In fact, we can put pressure on these guys, but we act as if completely powerless, ”concludes Crowley.


    Всем этим "ястребам" легко подстрекать Обаму на решительные действия против России, ведь они сами не будут отвечать за последствия содеянных ошибок. Климакс Клинтон мешает ей понять разницу между державой обладающей ЯО и имеющей высокотехнологичное оружие и "папуасами" с кремневыми ружьями, с которыми последнее время имели дело американцы.

    A moderate American opposition is ready to fight both Russia and Obama, especially in words. We are waiting for numerous rallies and demonstrations.

    winked Well, Obama can be understood: the United States was in a very difficult situation. If the United States climbed into Russia, then Russia would give them such a scuffle, which had not yet been in US history and which they had not even dreamed of. And if it doesn’t get in, the dollar will collapse, as a result of which the United States will also end up in feces without Russian massacre. In both cases, the very existence of the United States will be a very big question.

    The West really liked Gorbachev and Yeltsin. It seems to me that we will still remember Obama with a kind word, if he is President Clinton or Bush.
