Obama and Medvedev sign disarmament treaty

Harold Witkov
A few days ago, President Obama unveiled his new tit for tat "Queensbury Rules" of military engagement for America. So what do you do when you develop a new act?  You take it on the road of course. That is exactly what President Obama did in Prague today when he signed an agreement with the Russians to cut nuclear weapons.

Do you remember the movie, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid? In one of the most memorable scenes, 6' 9" Harvey Logan challenges Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) to see who should lead the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang:



Butch: "Oh no not yet, not till me and Harvey get the rules straightened out."

Harvey: "Rules?  In a knife fight. No rules!"

Butch kicks Harvey in the groin and Harvey falls to his knees.

Butch: "Well if there aren't gonna be any rules let's get the fight started.  Someone yell, ‘1, 2, 3 go!'"

Sundance: "1, 2, 3 go!"

Butch flattens Harvey with a double fist punch to the face.

So what really went on today when President Obama sat down with Russian President Dimitry Medvedev and signed an agreement restricting the use of atomic weapons?  I suspect while our president was caught up thinking about his tit for tat "Queensbury Rules" of engagement, Medvedev was thinking about kicking us in the groin and then punching us in the face.


Whatever happened to that street-smart president who once said, "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."?  Evidently, that President Obama keeps his savvy aggression strictly for the likes of Republicans, Tea Partiers and anyone else who might get in his domestic agenda way.  As for President Obama the international arms negotiator, he is about as bright as the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang's Harvey Logan. 


God help us when the 3AM phone call comes!
