Obama And Putin Speak, Mention Plane Crash; Obama Threatens With More Sanctions

Tyler Durden's picture




 

While the world was riveted by the latest Malaysian Airlines tragedy, Obama and Putin spoke. According to Reuters, Obama warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday that the United States and its allies are prepared to impose additional sanctions on Moscow if it does not change course in Ukraine.

More:

The blunt warning came during a phone call on Thursday.

 

White House spokesman Josh Earnest, briefing reporters on Obama's Air Force One flight from Washington to Delaware, said Obama was briefed by his advisers on the crash and directed top U.S. officials to remain in close contact with Ukrainian officials.

 

Earnest said the Obama-Putin phone call was made at the request of Moscow a day after the United States and European countries imposed new sanctions on Russia over its aggression against Ukraine.

 

Obama told Putin "additional steps are on the table if Russia doesn't change course," Earnest said.

Then the flipside, from Bloomberg:

  • PUTIN TELLS OBAMA HE'S SERIOUSLY DISAPPOINTED AT SANCTIONS

And yes, the crash was discussed:

"Russian President Vladimir Putin in a telephone conversation told U.S. President Barack Obama that a Malaysian airplane crashed on Ukrainian territory, the Kremlin said on Thursday. 

 

The two leaders held a pre-planned call on the situation in Ukraine during which information became available from air traffic controllers about the crash."

Expect many more such conversations, which will hardly be cordial, and a serious escalation in relations, now that there is a smoking gun provocation, which many are already equating with the modern version of the "Franz Ferdinand" moment.

the only real threat obama can make is to stop printing for more than 6 months....allow stocks (and all risk assets) drop, which would send oil below $60.  take that putin.  of course, putin knows there is no way that could ever happen, so he has free reign do literally do whatever he wants in ukraine.

You will not last your presidental tenure in office.

Actually, NO. Bush didn't do the same thing that I can remember, he picked on relatively harmless goat fuckers and camel jockeys to preserve and advance US imperialism.

I don't recall Bush being stupid enough to pick serious fights with States that can launch enough ICBMs with NUKULAR warheads to wipe out the entire US several times over... from the US coast. (Or off-road capable TELs if they want to be smart assed rednecks).

I do recall a rather gay (and even more stupid) comment Bushy made about staring into Putin eyes, but if there is some major international incident I'm forgetting, please feel free to refresh my memory....

What exact "course" should Russia take here, Obozo?  You destabalized a country that borders Russia and contains a large Russian speaking population, sparked a civil war there, and left Russia to deal with the mess.  

The west continues to burn lives in Ukraine in order to "get" at Russia. It's the west that needs to change their course.

And why the U.S.A. will not be getting away with it's desperate acts anymore.

By the way "laugh/sigh" we know this list is far from complete... But in the interest of both time and space and since it involves airplanes (again) some relevant ones that matter that could have started merged into both enormous lawsuits and war!

A quick chronology of what poor liars the U.S. Government is under similar circumstances including "there own" when "planes" are involved...

Iran Air Flight 655

TWA Flight 800

9/11

Need anyone say more?... 

Even Mayor of N.Y.C. Blasio calls what the NYCCAN on putting the High Rise Building Safety Initiative on the ballot this Fall "blasphemy", this after the New York circuit court of appeals shot it down the first time with over 80,000 signatures to the petition which they agreed to calling for a formal inquiry in that election in 2009!

It's not a Franz Ferdinand moment - shooting down an Malaysian plane traveling out of Amsterdam isn't going to rally the American public against 'the enemy'.  Think Lusitania, Pearl Harbor, Gulf of Tonkin, 9/11, if you're looking for false flags. 

 

This might actually just be an accident, because it doesn't serve much political purpose for either side.

AH

Under most circusmtances like the North Korean air 007 incident in 1983 and the Iranian airlines 655 in 1988, but this isn't either of those.

We're desperate enough and with every move the U.S./IMF is showing itself.  If Yanukovich hadn't been ousted in March of this year by a U.S. backed junta I think it's safe to say the crew and passengers aboard this Malaysian airliner would still be alive.

Wouldn't it be a hoot if we found out that this is the Flight 370 that went missing four months ago, and that the U.S. was using it as a "second attempt" to fuel WWIII?

He invites the Arab League (just this week?) annually to the WH for a Muslim 'Ramadan' celebration, while plotting with Zionist Binji to finnish off those pesky Palestinian's in the 'Gaza Death Camps', all the while droning a Hillary 'Kill List of Nationalist', these dual US citizens having tea in our 'tempest in a teapot'... Imperialist`Lobotomized /Colonialized ME!

How dare the backwardness of these indigenous people having giving birth to the 'Cradle of Civilization', and wanting independence! The nerve?

And, Feinstein finds time to destroy the 4th ammendment, with Reid opening up the borders for al-Qaeda and the 'IS' kids!

To think that brain dead Teddy Bear/Asshole Kennedy helped get this community organizer with just two-years as a US Senator from a 110% black voting Chicago elected president with just a hope and change prayer is beyond the pale,...

Does anyone know who was  the last leader of a western country to  ledd his army into battle? It was in 1756 when George II led his army during the Seven years war.

If we required  our leaders to  lead the troops into battle we wouldn't have any more wars

 In reality America has few military options in Russia's backyard unless it has the backing of a full and enthusiastic NATO and that is very unlikely. Europe has reason to be unexcited about a possible long and expensive conflict. While still trying to recover from a recession Europe would face fuel shortages and a massive spike in the price of natural gas. 

Currently Russia supplies much of the gas used in Europe, this gives Putin a great deal of leverage. If an actual ground attack were to occur few see the Russians as likely to rollover as other armies have when America approaches. More on this subject in the article below.
