    Was the transponder signaling that our commander is Islamic, he is leading the caliphate, you either subrogate your country or we will have no other alternative but to attack you ourselves or arm rebels to invade your territories. Russia is on to Obamas wily schemes and Al Sharpton cannot protect Obama from Russia with affirmative action. Obama finds it easy to lead a country over the brink and plunder its resources….. if its intelligencia is that of a level produced by Hollywood but Russia has fought the Nazis and defeated them they are full well capable at sizing up Obama and taking him down. What makes it easy for them is that Obamas legacy is to defeat the great Satan and that is the U.S. All his moves are for the destruction of America and Israel, he is a mastermind, and full well capable of taking down America but he will meet his Waterloo with Israel. It’s best to keep your eyes on Obama God will handle Putin.
