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

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.

      Obama elementarily begins to include the brain. If there is no brain, then it does not hurt, like the "hawks", but essentially brainless roosters.

            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!
          The United States is not hemorrhoids but a cancerous tumor of all mankind metastasizing in all regions in the form of "Controlled Chaos". The tumor “Occupied” the whole of Europe, Asia and the Middle East with its bases and periodically grows, hitting new organs on the world’s body. Ukraine is the last affected organ, although fortunately for the world and for us in particular, it was already economic atavism at the time of its infection.
          Actually, the southeast of the former Ukraine and now Syria have shown that cancer can be fought by burning its spread, most importantly, many countries of the world’s "organs" have seen this and really want to get rid of the tumor ...

          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.

          “It seems that I crap, but it’s not so! I’m slowly squeezing it out,” so what is it to understand? Although one FIG pants full .... Well, the logic.

        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.

        So Russia forgive "isolated with a torn economy into the trash dictatorial regime, shut up in a dupel" but the score is 2-2

      I think just these "many American officials" should be sent to war. Maybe then their opinion will change. They will immediately become Bold and Decisive.

    Well, if American political officials recognize this, then it turns out that our propaganda has nothing to do with it (as the "Russian democrats" want to present it). So things are really bad.

They will choose a new "leader of the nation and the world" in place of Babamka, in order to put himself in the right way, if you want, if you want, you will have to roll over Russia for Syria and for "all the good." So what? You can only fight with them for complete destruction, they will not negotiate with us. So we need to continue to swing the army and navy and think about where else to drag the Yankees, so that they would not have time to raise their heads.

    The war party (Republicans) in the USA is strong, but everything rests on Obama and the Democrats behind him who understand that if you go too far in relation to Russia's “bold response”, it threatens a world war. If a Republican representative (like McCain) wins the next US election, the likelihood of war will increase many times over.

    It’s not for you to fight with civilians, here you can and specifically grab it. And screaming at the milestones of the media that America is the strongest such a roar-meow is only for the Baltic states and other riffraffers.

    In order not to suffer all sorts of painful symptoms, one must live in good conscience and not cook up backstage games. Fight terrorists, so fight real, not imitate. Then then there will be no migraine or other crap. But the whole trouble is that he (Barack Obama) is not independent in his body movements. There is a certain more effective force for which there are no laws, just as there is no responsibility for everything done. Obama is only an official doll for concentration of public opinion. Someone on top is strange, but his forelock is cracking. We must look for those ultimate, most important and inconspicuous process leaders in the American elite, and work on it. Or to show that the nuclear arsenal is aimed not at some Donald Cook, but at them personally. Then, perhaps, they will have a desire to negotiate. And now for this small but rich pile, the entire population of the earth is not a reason for reflection.

    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.



    They just eat in the head! but do not think it! Nothing! Debiloids cannot understand one thing, that it will also fall into “exceptional” ones specifically, and “horns and legs” (pah, pah, pah! God forbid what happens!) They will remain from the ground! They decided that they were “preserved”!
    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 ...

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


    All these hawks can easily incite Obama to decisive action against Russia, because they themselves will not be responsible for the consequences of their mistakes. Climax Clinton prevents her from understanding the difference between a power possessing nuclear weapons and having high-tech weapons and Papuans with flintlock guns that the Americans have been dealing with recently.

    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.
