Bobnox and John Kerry In Complete Agreement…

March 3, 2014 / Comments Off on Bobnox and John Kerry In Complete Agreement…

Both John Kerry and I both agree that Ukraine is NOT on the brink, but that’s as far as our simpatico goes.

Ironically, the situation in Ukraine and Crimea is totally under control. Putin’s control. He will take decisive action. And do it on his time, on his terms.

Kerry and many others make the point Putin is not acting rationally. I disagree. What is John Kerry’s definition of a rational strategy in Ukraine?  Rational Strategy = “What John Kerry would do if John Kerry were Vladimir Putin.”

QED: John Kerry proves to himself and the world that Putin is not acting rationally.

That Putin, he’s just a 19th century throwback in a 21st century world. Silly oligarch, he.

Putin is 100% rationale. For a Russian. Russians believe in Zero Sum Politics. Always have, always will.  The Win-Win-Win global politics to which Obama, Kerry, Susan Rice and Samantha Power all ascribe is a pipedream. A great theory in the academic lounge. Piffle in the real world with real guns and butter.

That Global Test that John Kerry aced when he was running for President? Well, Putin flunked it.
