Putin displays Ukraine chess mastery

Putin is playing them off the board. Has the US ever had so stupid a Top Team in play? 

A mediocre Foreign student is taken from ignominy as a mediocre Union Organizer, taught to repeat Yes We Can, and sailed into office on a race card, then goes up against well educated, experienced, Russian Grand Masters of Politics, who debag them every time. Sad if it were not so funny. Clinton hides from Benghazi and Skeletor Kerry is sent out as the broken half of a Punch and Judy show to lower America's standing ever more.

What a sad bunch of mediocre, dysfunctional losers.

Great article, in the end it is the one with money that makes the rules.

Russia's celebrations of the 69th anniversary of the defeat of fascism in World War II come just days after Ukrainian neo-fascists enacted an appalling Odessa massacre. For those who know their history, the graphic symbolism speaks for itself.

And then a geopolitical chess gambit added outright puzzlement to the trademark hypocrisy displayed by the self-proclaimed representatives of "Western civilization".

The gambit comes from - who else - Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is now actively mixing chess moves with Sun Tzu's Art of War and Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching. No wonder all those American PR shills, helpless State Department spokespersons and NATOstan generals are clueless.

Unlike the Obama administration's juvenile delinquent school of diplomacy - which wants to "isolate" Putin and Russia - a truce and possible deal in the ongoing Ukrainian tragedy has been negotiated between adults on speaking terms, Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, then discussed and finally announced in a press conference by the president of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, Didier Burghalter.
