Putin’s phone call put Obama in a fix

Putin’s phone call put Obama in a fix just as he was preparing to leave for Warsaw for the summit meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) from July 8-9.This was not the moment when Obama can afford to be seen discussing with Putin the nitty-gritty of peace-making – when the NATO has been flashing its swords on Russia’s borders.The alliance’s summit in Warsaw is focused on “defence and deterrence” with Russia in the cross hairs and Putin’s phone call makes a mockery of months of sustained campaign to somehow get the NATO member countries to fasten on to Russia as the “enemy.”Why did Putin embarrass Obama? The short answer is, Moscow understands that the two-day summit meeting due to begin in Warsaw on Friday has become a pantomime.

Very true you are. First crack has already appeared as younger brother (UK) will not be in a position to support elder brother (US) from EU platform. With Br exit, most probably Germans will be in better position to reconstruct the strategies in Europe.
