I certainly hope President Obama is enjoying his personal Bay of Pigs moment in Syria.
History tends to repeat itself. In 1961 President Kennedy had a last moment lapse of conviction and abandoned anti-Castro counterrevolutionaries landed on Cuban shores and air dropped into Cuba's interior. They were slaughtered.
Soviet dictator Nikita Khrushchev saw this as weakness on the part of President Kennedy, prompting him to move nuclear missiles into Cuba - which led to within a hair breadths of nuclear war between the United States and Russia.
With Obama's less than half hearted, play acting role of fighting Isis with a phantom 60 nation coalition - after all that hollow thunder about red lines and dire consequences directed at Syrian dictator Assad, Russian dictator Putin has shoved Obama's policy reset button with Russia up Obama's ass with direct, in country Russian support of Assad by attacking Syrian anti-Assad rebels Obama is ostensibly using as a proxy force against Isis. It's now a proxy war between Russia and the United States. Since Obama continues to embarrassingly dither with emasculated "wrong side of history" and "the world disapproves" blather rather than act with effective action, Putin sees even more exploitable weakness from Obama.
Putin's playing a three dimensional chess game while a delusional Obama thinks he's winning at strip poker. So, what's Putin's next move?
The answer may well very well lie within Cuba as well as throughout the middle east and Europe, since the Castro brothers are blacking Obama's eyes by sending troops to Syria to fight under Russian command while Obama is seeking to normalize relations with Cuba.
It may be time to rechristen the White House as "the Obama clown house".
