Ralph Peters on Georgia

They “should dust off their Russian dictionaries” if Obama is elected.

He’s got a list of predictions for ways that our enemies and potential enemies will test us with a president so weak on foreign policy. No doubt, many of the predictions will turn out to have been overestimated or just plain wrong.

However, it’s the unknown unknowns that we should be most worried about.

  1. Are you saying Ralph is a bit of an alarmist? ๐Ÿ™‚ Yea, he’s all that, and a bag of chips………..but I agree with his basic thrust that Comrade Obama will be a disaster for the US and it’s allies. All that Kumbaya, group hug, let’s spread the wealth around may be the beginning of the Socialist Republic of America, I’m afraid.

    I’m very afraid Ralph is correct about the Ukraine and Georgia though, even if McCain is elected. Georgia was very definitely a test case for Putin and his crew to see how the West would react. I’m pretty sure their assumption we’re “bleating sheep” wasn’t disappointed. You’ve really pissed us off now! You’ve only got twelve more last chances, mister! ๐Ÿ™

  2. The Ukraine may be a bit too much for the Russian Bear to bite off. They are a big country with a gigantic army on paper at least. While they publicly gave up all their nukes when the Soviet Union fell, rumor has it they may have a few stashed away just in case.

    If the Russians invade, the Poles and the rest of Eastern Europe may decide it’s time to fight together rather than fall separately. They really hate the Russians with good reason.

    This war is a lot less likely to happen if we have a strong President. B-2 bombers were built to destroy Russian tanks columns, if our leader has the balls to use them.

  3. Flanker, according to UN demographic data, Ukraine is set to lose 46% of her population by 2050 and Georgia will lose 42%. And this will happen without Russian involvement. What is the point of defending these nations if their people don’t even wish to reproduce?

  4. Yeah you guys are completely right.

    Let’s continue to live in a country where healthcare is a privilege not a right. Let’s continue to live in a country where thousands of jobs are lost everyday to “Globalization”. Let’s continue the current administrations policies, and continue to spend so much money that soon enough we won’t be able to afford even half of an aircraft carrier. Let’s continue to run a giant trade imbalance. Let’s support all of the beloved oil companies by giving them tax breaks. After all they are looking out for us…

    McCain 2008,

    NOT

  5. I think all therealdeal does is spam posts with off-topic crap. But it’s all he’s got, so let him play.

  6. Hey Murdoc

    Sorry that you think I am a spammer. I actually love your blog and visit often because I do agree with many of your viewpoints.

    However what I do not agree with is the general animosity against Obama and the rest of the “Liberals” that I see every now and then.

    My post above was a reply to “Flanker’s” post.

    “I agree with his basic thrust that Comrade Obama will be a disaster for the US and itโ€™s allies. All that Kumbaya, group hug, letโ€™s spread the wealth around may be the beginning of the Socialist Republic of America, ”

    I hope that clears it up now.

  7. I apologize for being off topic, but to the therealdeal, if you would like health care to become a right, then why don’t you amend the constitution like others have done over the years for Women’s suffrage and 26 other reasons.

    Also, please do not conflate health care with health insurance. You did not say it explicitly but many on your side seem to confuse The two.

  8. therealdeal: Well, I guess I can buy that. I thought I had seen previous similar comments from you, but I may be mistaken. I retract my comment.
