In late 2013, President Obama sent Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and national embarrassment John McCain to Ukraine to engineer neo-Nazi demonstrations against the legally elected and duly constituted government of President Viktor Yanukovych. In February 2014, Yanukovych fled to Russia and U.S. puppet Oleksandr Tuchynov was named interim President.
Ukraine's Eastern neighbor, Russia, reacted quickly and predictably to annex Crimea in order to secure its Black Sea Naval Base at Sevastopol. Barack Obama reacted petulantly and vociferously, and Secretary of State Kerry threatened "sanctions" against Russia for protecting its interests against foreign (U.S.) meddling in its neighbor's politics.
Meanwhile, Ukrainians were apparently no less disgruntled by Obama's foolish attempts at nation building than Vladimir Putin, and anti-Kiev revolts broke out throughout Eastern Ukraine. When Tuchynov sent Ukrainian Army troops to quell the unrest, the troops defected to the rebels.
With the puppet government in Kiev teetering on the brink of collapse and Russia poised to take advantage of a situation caused by Obama's ineptness, Washington enacted "sanctions" against a number of Russian interests in the United States, such as freezing of assets and denial of credit. Oh my goodness!
Putin reacted yesterday by revoking American access to he International Space Station and by cutting off our supply of the Russian RD-180 rocket engine.
Since Barack Obama dismantled NASA early in his career of national destruction, directing it to expend its energies "making Arab nations feel good about themselves," America has no space vehicle and no capability to build rocket engines to launch communication satellites, GPS satellites, and military surveillance satellites.
We have been rendered by our Commander-in-Chief totally dependent on Russia for any of our space needs, including military – and now our President has pissed off Russia with a childish impulse to repeat his disastrous Egyptian "Arab Spring" maneuver in Vladimir Putins' front yard.
This disaster is the result of simple incompetence. Its not "bad luck." Luck is not a consideration when you're playing Russian roulette with all the chambers loaded.
