Vladimir Putin 2012 Tribute

The Republican candidate for the White House, Mitt Romney, said Monday, 8 October that "there would be no flexibility" with Russian President Vladimir Putin over U.S. plans for a missile shield in Europe. "I will put in place effective missile defenses to protect us from threats.

And in this regard, there will be no flexibility with Vladimir Putin," said Mitt Romney during a campaign moving in Lexington, Virginia. His Democratic rival, Barack Obama, said in April the then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, there would be "more flexible" about it if elected Nov. 6.

In addition, the Republican candidate, highly critical of the record of U.S. President Middle East, has accused Barack Obama of not having shown the way on Syria and reiterated its call to arm the opposition. "In Syria, we work with our partners to identify and organize the opposition members who share our values​​, and we will make sure they get the weapons they need to defeat tanks, helicopters and fighter Assad , "said Mitt Romney. The candidate had already called for arming the opposition in previous speeches.

Taking as its starting point the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, in eastern Libya, on September 11, Mitt Romney sought to illustrate the "passivity" and lack of "leadership" of the president on the international scene sweeping many hot issues diplomatic Middle East and Russia.

My mind :

Bravo Romney to announce this statement, that means his councelors think differently to Obama's who can't do what he thinks , he doesn't know what to think , no vision whatsoever he has , he is only a profeessor in a faculty , what he can do is lecturing , he missThis who hesitats can not do anything.

What if he helped the opposition in Syria, Did he let that for Saudi Arabia and Qatar ? These, have little experiences. Obama , can not read what is behind the intervention in Syria , he only let Iran play in the arina alone.

Did he want to let Russia and China beat him ? or is he playing the role of the laming duck in the end of his term ? Is he waiting for another term to carry out what he couldn't do in the first term ?

He is dreaming of gaining another one , but , he won't get it . Because in football match - this soccer - in America-, the team who is defending all the time won't get any victory , This is exactly what Obama is going to do .
