    There is an important point to look at with the Ukraine as Barry threatens this and that at which Putin is completely ignoring. And that is this is what happens with an unchecked tyrant.
    I’ve seen several videos of the Ukraine people being shot at with nothing but
    metal shields as they continued to stand defiantly against the police forces.

    The don’t have the Second Amendment.

    I wonder how easily the Russians could walk in if they were met with pockets of rebel forces coming out, opening fire and disappearing into the crowds? I wonder what the Russian soldier would feel like knowing he might be going home in a box?

    This is why we “right wing nutcases” cling to our guns. Our economy is going to collapse. It has to. We have an unresolvable debt. And when it does we will have chaos in the metropolitan areas. And the government’s answer will be to disarm the people. How do I know
    this? I watched the aftermath of Katrina in New Orleans. Because we are a
    society that favors the criminal and entitlement driven over the law abiding.

    Barry, I would watch closely to the happenings in the Ukraine. These people are resisting even with the lack of firearms. I’ve predicted in my fiction the incoming tyranny to the United
    States. But we aren’t the Ukraine. And we have millions of firearms in our
    homes, Barry.

    This is not rocket science! The West has shown weakness and it’s only to be expected that it’s geopolitical competitors would respond accordingly.

    Welcome to the Fall of the West. I wish I could believe it was only Obama but I am afraid he is an accurate representation of an intellectually, economically and spiritually exhausted civilization. Is a revival possible? I suppose nothing is impossible but I fail to see anything, or anyone, on the horizon who will reverse these trends

    “Putin holds on to the outdated thinking of “sphere of domain,” which may trigger frictions with China as its influence in Central Asia expands. But the divergence between the two is not beyond management . . .”

    Now that is scary.

    While it is true that Obama is the weakest president ever, and has left a power vacuum, the Iran, Russia, China axis aren’t the only ones trying to fill it. The Asian countries bordering the south china sea are all spending more money on their militaries, further west India, Saudi Arabia, Israel are all pushing back at the axis, all around the world other nations are taking actions to fill the void. In less than 3 years the lame Obama will be replaced, most likely by a reform minded Jacksonian/Hamiltonian Republican administration, which will organized an alliance to oppose the IRC. In the mean time let’s hope that IRC overreach doesn’t start a world wide war, before a new administration can initiate containment. No doubt the IRC recognizes that their window of opportunity is brief, and overreach is highly likely as they get desperate to grab territory before the American Superpower reawakens and blocks any further ambitions on their part, or even worse rolls them back with humiliating losses.
