    The comparison is continually being made by observers who do not understand the game.

    I suspect the “marbles” comparison was also made by a politician that does not even understand the rules for playing marbles, much less chess.

    More like Putin is playing whack-a-mole with former territories. What game was Dubya playing when Russia invaded Georgia?

    Back when I was a boy, the Russian Empire claimed a duty to protect all the Orthodox Christians in the Ottoman Empire. As Britain correctly pointed out, this was a violation of Ottoman territorial integrity, and anyway, Orthodox are not really Christians.


    So Britain sent a Light Brigade and a Nightingale to the Crimea and managed to unconditionally defeat the Russian Empire.


    Now the US just needs to find itself a Light Brigade and a Nightingale to send to defend the Crimea from Russian aggression. (Plus a good poet laureate, of course.)

    “Putin is playing whack-a-mole with former territories”

    Finally, a comparison that fits the situation, thanks.

    “Putin isn’t playing Chess, he’s playing ‘Chicken.’”

    I wholeheartedly agree with you…and, he is a Very dangerous man who is out to Prove something to both his country and Ukraine…and also to the US… ;)

    Obama doesn’t have to play chess in this situation. A casual game of checkers is sufficient.

    The truth is that Obama does not care one iota about foreign policy. His only concern is to “fundamentally change America”. The problem with that is, we are not going to like the change!
