So, the fitting end to the Sochi Olympics is a giant war in central Europe, in which the host country plays a primary role in starting a conflict. Where is Obama in all this? Nowhere, because he has squandered his credibility with all parties, but especially with Putin, who despises him. The fruits of Obama's Syrian debacle are now evident. His amateurish and naive behavior there leads to this new sort of conflict becoming all that much more probable. With a strong, assertive America, as least there would be a hope of some moderation in the behavior of these people, but now, not so much. Accurate or not, Putin likely believes he has a free hand in handling this crisis with the Ukraine however he wants, and it appears he is right.
If that is how it comes to pass, consider the encouragement that will give to every other tin pot tyrant. What violence can we expect from such luminaries as Kim Jong Un, the Castros, The Chinese, or Maduro in Venezuela?
What if during some conflagration Obama manages to stumble the US into a hot war, ready or not? How would you like to go to war with Red China? Why shouldn't they challenge us now while we have a feckless naif in charge? Something like that is probably the most immediate threat to our peace, there are multiple hair triggers ready to be pulled, and there are three long years left to endure of the narcissistic Nobel Laureate in charge of the most powerful country in the free world.
Hang on, and pass the ammunition.
This could be just the beginning of a very bloody three years.
