Putin Moves His Queen Chess Piece

Vladimir Putin is a chess player and the game today is taking place in Syria. He has moved his chess pieces -planes, soldiers, missiles –into Syria. He is convinced this show of force will intimidate and defeat groups such as ISIS, but especially Syrians who hate Assad and want him to leave the office of president. It is a big gamble for Putin. One might say, a chess game which is truly–winner take all. What most probably will be the outcome of this chess game?

1. Russian troops will die. That is the bad news. The good news is that in authoritarian Russia, the populace is cowed and will not protest.

2. Russian troops at this moment have high morale. That sense of being in charge will rapidly change to one of being beleaguered.

3. The Russian air bombing simply can not and will not work. This approach to dealing with guerrillas has failed time after time.

4. Most probably at some moment, Putin will force Assad to leave. Putin does not handle defeat very well. Entering Syria is a lose-lose proposition and someone has to take the blame– Assad.

Vladimir, Welcome To Bomb Town

Well,the Putin boys have arrived in town only to receive a warm welcome from ISIS,the Free Syrian Army and just about every bomb crazy person in the Syrian conflict. Captain Mustafa of the Free Syrian Army is happy at the opportunity to blast away at Russians,and over at ISIS headquarters, the welcome mat is out for any and all Russians. Since the Russians are more interested in democratic forces opposed to President Assad, their main focus has been upon groups that seek the end of Assad rather than on ISIS which seeks the end of everyone, and that includes Russians.

Back in 1980, the Russian army marched into Afghanistan feeling they were on a picnic. Eight years later, after the death of thousands–of Russians, the Russian army meekly marched out. Captain Mustafa noted about Russians: “you don’t know what you’ve got yourself into.”

Explaining Syria

Recent events in Syria have not been discussed in the American media, aside from calls for “more boots on the ground” Few American analysts have given the public an understanding of what is transpiring in Syria.

1. President Assad is frightened. He is scared of his allies in Iran. Assad now grasps that the Ayatollahs in Tehran are ready to dump him and get what they can from Syria.

2. The Iran Revolutionary Guard has grown powerful in Syria to the point where it is making decisions about the country’s future. The Iranians believe they no longer need Syrians in leadership positions.

3. The Alewives, from which Assad comes, are not the same type of Muslims as those in Iran. As one noted, “They are turning us back a thousand years. We don’t wear headscarves and we aren’t Shiites.”

4. Assad fears that Hezbollah will carve out a piece of Syria that borders Lebanon and just forget about Syria.

5. So, Assad has called in the Russians to balance Iran.

6. And, Putin wants Syria to be close to Russia so if Iran gains power in Syria, goodbye Russia!

March On Mother Russia

Latest reports indicate that Russian troops are now in combat alongside their Syrian buddies. Of course, their allies in this glorious war to defend Mother Russia against the hordes of Islamic terrorists, are troops, who for one reason or another, support the regime of their glorious leader, President Assad. As Karl Marx once said, history all too often repeats itself as farce. It was thirty five years ago that Russian troops, then representing the Soviet Union, marched with happy looks on their faces into Afghanistan to support Communist leaders. Today,they march to assist the incompetent, authoritarian, un-loved government of President Assad.

Vladimir Putin is the Donald Trump of Russia. He has a “plan,” he knows how to win, he is a job creator, he will win because he has always won. Only,this time, thousands of Russians will die. Western infidels will NOT defeat Islamic believers. So, march on and on and meet the doom that awaits Russian soldiers in Syria.

Russia’s Afghanistan??

During the 1980s, when Vladimir Putin was an obscure operative for the Russian secret police, the KGB, a Russian Communist leader decided to come to the aid of some Afghan Communists and sent Russian troops into the land. About ten years later, and thousands of dead Russian soldiers later, the Russians departed that land of sorrow. Now, there is another Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, who has decided to send in the troops, this time, not to Afghanistan, but to Syria. Putin insists his soldiers will mainly be members of the air force or navy,no boots on the ground.

So, welcome, Vladimir to the mess in Syria. Send in your troops, sent in your air force, send in your navy. There will come a day when some Russian soldiers will be killed on the streets of Damascus,and Vladimir will demand revenge.Again Russian troops will die.

Barack, just remember, there is NO western solution to the mess in Syria, remain out and let them fight it out. In the end, Muslims must solve their own problems.

Oh Dem Tricky Americans!

There are moments when I wonder what it would be like to live in the world of Vladimir Putin in the beloved land of Mother Russia. Member of the Russian legislature proved that Russian legislators are even crazier than those in America. He apparently is a secret member of the Tea Party. According to Deputy Vyacheslav, the reason NASA revealed information about possible water on Mars was it was an attempt to capture the headlines and prevent Putin’s speech to the UN General Assembly being the main feature of the day.

According to him,”Putin’s speech, of course, was the central element of the UN General Assembly meeting.” It makes one wonder whether some Tea Party folk ought to head for Russia since there are plenty of fellow nut cases in that land. How about Ted Cruz running for President of Russia??

Vladimir On Center Stage

There is only one place that makes Vladimir Putin feel comfortable or welcome,and that is center stage on the world. He went to the United Nations and actually,not only talked with President Obama, but shook his hand. Putin is ready for action, whether it be attacking gays and lesbians in Russia or attacking ISIS in Syria. Of course, the great Russian army has yet to actually take the stage in fighting people since the 1990s when it bombed to hell ‘terrorists’ in Chechnya. Since then it has handled gays and lesbians with firmly, as well as women who sing songs that Vladimir does not like.

Anyway, there are now Russian planes in Syria,and Vladimir is ready to have his ‘advisors’ empower Syrian soldiers to bomb the hell out of Syrian towns, kill some thousands of civilians, and somehow, end the war in Syria. At this point in time,Obama is ready to welcome just about anyone to fight against ISIS. Has he considered:

1. Ted Cruz might lead fervent Christians into battle for the Lord.

2. Or, Scott Walker now has time to actually fight someone who can shoot back. After all,he handled unions with great talent.

Just imagine, Ted Cruz and Vladimir Putin leading Christians into battle for the Lord!

Putin Pontificates On Everything

Lost in the incredible coverage of Pope Francis in New York,there was also another important world figure in town, but nobody paid much attention to the man whose mouth roars defiance to just about anyone who dares to challenge his views on world events.Macho man Vladimir Putin was in town,and he had words of advice for everyone. First, he wants the world to know that President Bashar al-Assad is the key figure in halting the spread of violence in Syria. Putin is shocked that western news sources claim Assad is guilty of something related to ‘war crimes.” I do know there have been reports of some sort of war crimes going on in Syria, but until Vladimir explained the true story, I somehow blamed Assad.

“Speaking as former member of the KGB, “I can tell you this kind of assessment is an active measure by enemies of Assad. It is anti-Syria, propaganda,”and anyone who follows my twitter or Facebook account knows that I already have exposed this terrorist attack on an innocent man who loves one and all. Well,if Vladimir says Assad is a good guy,who am I to contradict the wisest man on this planet??

Russia In Syria

There is great concern among members of the US government and just about every Republican running for president over the movement of Russian soldiers, planes and ships to Syria. President Putin says their presence is to assist in the destruction of ISIS, and support the government of Syria. Let’s examine the issues of this move:

1. Russia has been supporting Syria for nearly thirty years, so what’s new about their latest move?

2. AN object of the Russians is to eliminate ISIS. I assume that is also the goal of America.

3. Ironically,the Russians will be protecting Christians and moderate Muslims against terrorist organizations. Any complaint?

4. America fears that Russia will gain a sphere or influence in Syria: Fellows, it already HAS such a sphere.

Frankly, if Putin wants to shed Russian blood to destroy ISIS, go for it, Vladimir!

Putin DID Make An Offer

There is no question that Vladimir Putin is a bully, a tyrant, a man who hates those daring to question his authority about anything. But,every once and a while the Russian Donald Trump does make some sense. Finnish leader Martin Ahisaan told reporters that in 2012 while working with a team of diplomats seeking to resolve the Syrian problem he was approached by Russian diplomat Vitaly Churkin with the following proposal from the Russian government:

1. The West should not give arms to opponents of the Assad government.

2. We should organize a dialogue among all opponents of the Assad government.

3. We should find an elegant way for Assad to step aside.

There was no response from either the US,France or England.

And, thus a chance for peace was not pursued.
