Ralph Peters: Obama’s “a Deer Caught in the Headlights Of History”

Well, the talking heads sure had a lot to talk about Wednesday following Putin’s big power play in Syria, Wednesday.

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters went on Fox News to give his assessment of the situation.

Obama is so weak that Putin wouldn’t hesitate to shoot one of our planes down because he knows Obama won’t do anything about it, Peters told host Bill Hemmer.

“This guy is good, and we’ve got a pixie dust president who still thinks he can say something three times and it will come true,” he continued.

The Pixie Dust President lectured the UN yesterday about how “violent extremism” is not unique to any one faith, which prompted British Prime Minister David Cameron to rebuke him, “… we have to be frank that the biggest problem we have today is the Islamist extremist violence that has given birth to ISIL, to al-Shabab, to al-Nusra, al Qaeda and so many other groups.”

Meanwhile “master of propaganda” Vladimir Putin is saying what the US said (pre Obama): “fight them over there so they don’t come here.”

“Under international law, Vladimir Putin has a better case for being there than we do. He invited Putin in. We weren’t invited in,” Peters pointed out.

He added, “despite all the ‘Baghdad Bob’ behavior from Josh Earnest, what Putin is doing is absolutely transparent.”

  1. Support Assad.
  2. Create mischief while he can (with Obama in office.)
  3. He is building an alliance in the Middle East with Iran, Iraq and Syria – to keep us out.

“He is betting on the Shia Muslims against the Sunnis,” Peters explained.

“In almost 7 years this president hasn’t learned that words don’t stop bullets. He is fundamentally out of touch with human reality, with the reality of history, with the reality of warfare, and Vladimir Putin – ruthless and vicious and ugly though he is — he’s the one that’s on the side of history, now. Not us. We’re clinging to 20th century platitudes, and Putin is changing the world. CHANGING THE WORLD, as we do nothing.”

“Putin is a man of action and God help us – our president is a deer caught in the headlights of history.”

Ralph Peters, NY Post: Putin wants to humiliate Obama with airstrikes in Syria:

Putin has bet on the Shia world against the Sunni Muslims and is well along in the process of building a wall of allies from Tehran to Tripoli. Already, Russia has a renewed presence and influence in the Middle East after a four-decade absence.

Our response? We’re still funding the Iranian-owned Baghdad government; still shortchanging the Kurds; still afraid to use real military power against ISIS; and terrified that Putin will push the Syrian situation into a confrontation.

He will. And the Obama administration is utterly, profoundly unprepared.

Personally, I’m not sure Obama is being buffeted around by the ‘forces of change’, unable to grasp that his policy of doing nothing but speechifying is unproductive.

I can’t shake the feeling that everything he’s doing is part of some grand, awful, anti-American plan.

How could anyone actually be this incompetent?

    Precisely. Remember “Tell Vladimir that after the election I will have more flexibility”? If that was not proof of what some of us had already surmised, based on Obama’s background, I don’t know what would be. Those of us who did our homework back in 2007 and 2008 learned that Obama is a lifelong communist. Mole, Manchurian candidate, whatever you want to call him, he was put in the White House for a reason, and it sure wasn’t dazzling intelligence or a long, impressive résumé.
