Am I the only one that is kinda happy that Obama is doing nothing in regards to the Russia/Ukraine and Israel/Palestinian problem?

I'm sure there are some back channel stuff that he's doing, but in general not big things.

I'm happy about it. It's not our problem in any way. Obviously if Russia does something against NATO then we have to step in, since we have treaties. If they don't then I don't really see a reason to get involved.

I'd like to add that Obama is raping America blindly. On the positive side, he's not getting us tangled up with foreign affairs.

He is doing whatever his big business cronies are telling him to do.  If he is doing nothing, then he is following orders to do so.

Pele give Obama a lot of shit and call him a liar abs this and that. But even he was running for president he said we will lessen our global presence (paraphrasing). And that's to an extent what he's doing. If bush or someone similar were in office then we would have troops on the boat of Ukraine right now, and who knows what would be going on with Israel seeing as how they are our "allies" Phone Post 3.0

He can't have another show of impotence blow up in his face like Syria at this point in time. His only concern right now is midterm elections. After those are done we'll see him go full retard. Phone Post 3.0

I'm good with it. I think staying the fuck out of the middle east right now is a good. idea.

Ukraine is an interesting situation, but caution is definitely a good idea.

We should just stop foreign aid and stop wasting time trying to "help" people. More often then not in the last 3 decades when we "help" we fuck shit up and make it worse.

If he doesn't give a shit about the SCOTUS or Congress now what will he do in a few months when the elections are over. That's a scary thought.

No hes gotta do something. The middle east is a mess.....he has a shit load of scandals at home.....he looks like a lame duck unfortunately.

What russia is doin is similar to what germany did back before ww2. There are gas interests in the ukraine that russia will control.

The US is at risk of appearing weak and thats bad news. Phone Post 3.0

Or you can say that a lot of the shit that has been happening is a result of Obama's display of weakness. Phone Post 3.0
