It seems that Obama is living in a world of prejudice and cannot understand that his own actions are inconsistent with his arguments making his opponent stronger not weaker. Obama will continue to escalate for he is just outclassed by Putin. Obama is becoming the evil empire and Putin the great defender. Obama is the Russian people toward Putin by his own stupidity.
This is like the story of the teacher at university confronting Gandhi who in this case is smarter than the teacher (Obama).
When Gandhi was studying law at the University College of London, there was a professor, whose last name was Peters, who felt animosity for Gandhi, and because Gandhi never lowered his head towards him, their “arguments” were very common.
One day, Mr. Peters was having lunch at the dining room of the University and Gandhi came along with his tray and sat next to the professor. The professor, in his arrogance, said, “Mr Gandhi: you do not understand… a pig and a bird do not sit together to eat “, to which Gandhi replies, “You do not worry professor, I’ll fly away “, and he went and sat at another table.
Mr. Peters, green of rage, decides to take revenge on the next test, but Gandhi responds brilliantly to all questions. Then, Mr. Peters asked him the following question, “Mr Gandhi, if you are walking down the street and find a package, and within it there is a bag of wisdom and another bag with a lot of money; which one will you take?”
Without hesitating, Gandhi responded, “the one with the money, of course”.
Mr. Peters, smiling, said, “I, in your place, would have taken the wisdom,
don’t you think?”
“Each one take what one doesn’t have”, responded Gandhi indifferently.
Mr. Peters, already hysteric, writes on the exam sheet the word “idiot” and gives it to Gandhi. Gandhi takes the exam sheet and sits down. A few minutes later, Gandhi goes to the professor and says, “Mr. Peters, you signed the sheet, but you did not give me the grade.”
Markets actually move on ANTICIPATION not based on fact or reason. In the 1987 Crash, fund managers were asked why they sold? They responded it was the lack of news. They called their brokers and asked why was the stock market crashing. The reply was straight forward – nobody knew. All sorts of rumors emerged to explain the drastic move without any fundamental domestic event. They sold because they could not ANTICIPATE what would happen the next day.
It is NEVER the “news” that makes the trend, but the confidence and anticipation of the trend. To understand an opponent, it matters what he believes and nothing else. If someone confronts you with a gun and demands all your money, do you anticipate whether or not the gun is loaded assuming it looks real? You assume it is loaded and comply.
The persecution of the Christians by the Romans failed because they anticipated a reward upon death. If you took a terrorists and said you would kill him and bury him in a pig skin so he would be deprived of his reward, things would change. It matters what he believe – not what you believe.
Obama is the idiot here for he fails to comprehend Putin. The more Obama yells and threatens him, the stronger Putin will become domestically. Obama is having the exact opposite effect than the pretend sanctions are supposed to create building Putin into a superstar against America that is being seen as the oppressive evil empire. Obama will ensure the crisis will turn into war beyond words and indeed we have an idiot in charge who cannot see he is outclassed in a battle of words he cannot win precise as Peters confronting Gandhi.
Based upon reliable information, if Obama continues to escalate this crisis, Putin will deal with Iran and circumvent all UN sanctions. In this way, Russia will expand into the Middle East. Obama is blind, death, and cannot speak anything of substance. Obama so just be some divorce lawyer. His tactics are just confrontational without a shred of strategy.
