Duffer in Chief’s Happy Gilmore Strategy for Ukraine

Duffer in Chief’s Happy Gilmore Strategy for Ukraine

The Ukraine is in for some serious trouble. Two columns of Russian tanks and other military vehicles rolled across the border Thursday.  The satellite images provide a pretty clear picture of what rolled into the Ukraine yesterday morning.

Now I don’t know about you, but if I saw tanks and military personnel come rumbling into my country, the word I’d use to describe what is happening is Invasion. I mean, we’re looking at 10 or more tanks with at least 3 soldiers each in those tanks, additional military vehicles and personnel that add up to at least 1,000 Russian troops who drove into the Ukraine on Thursday morning. This brings the estimated number of Russian troops in the Ukraine to 4,000. I have to say, it kinda sorta seems like an invasion to me.

But wait! Hold yer horses! You see, we have all sorts of people who’d rather use prettier terms like “escalation” or “incursion”. Those words are acceptable but invasion is not. Those in the know have even said so! Check out the response to Andrea Mitchell’s question:

State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said, “I think this is a discussion about terminology” and that it doesn’t change the kind of support the U.S. is giving Ukraine and the discussions U.S. officials are conducting.”
“Escalation of aggression by the Russians has been a pattern over the last several months,” Psaki said. She said that this would be a main issue discussed at the NATO summit next week, and that there are “sanctions we could still do, a range of tools at our disposal.”

Uhhh huhhh. “Terminology” and a range of tools?? I think we need more than a putter or a 5 iron to deal with what happened in the Ukraine yesterday morning. Can a putter help when this happens?

A top NATO official said at least 1,000 Russian troops have poured into Ukraine with sophisticated equipment and have been in direct “contact” with Ukrainian soldiers, resulting in casualties, the Associated Press reported. He called that a conservative estimate and said an additional 20,000 Russian troops were right over the border in Russia.

Meanwhile our Duffer in Chief admits that he doesn’t have a set strategy for dealing with ISIS/ISIL/IS terrorists. As a matter of fact, he really doesn’t have a strategy for dealing with what is going on in the Ukraine, other than blaming Russia that is.

However, make no mistake, he will make sure the voices in Congress are heard.  Meanwhile, lets not worry about if the US has a strategy to deal with the invasion/incursion/escalation of the Ukraine. Lets pivot to golf for the big solution! Remember, golf has a strategy all its own.

How that fits into the US Foreign policy, I have no idea. The rest of the world doesn’t know either. That’s ok. We have ISIS and Putin taking advantage of the fact that the flexible red line holds only if you dare step on the golf course without the Duffer’s permission. And since that red line has been so pliant Putin will continue to do what he’s been doing; invading the Ukraine and watching Obama wander around making statements then hotfooting it to the golf course. The Ukraine will fall back into the hands of Russia, and ISIS will continue to advance its reign of terror as Congress awaits the royal visit while our Duffer in Chief wanders the golf course refusing to deal with our very real foreign policy issues and instead is doing his level best to channel Happy Gilmore.
