Pentagon studying Putin's body language

submit to reddit

A research team at the Pentagon is studying body movements of Russian President Vladimir Putin in order to be able to anticipate his future actions.

The research team is using the principles of movement pattern analysis to predict actions of Putin and several other world leaders, USA TODAY reported on Thursday.

The project, named “Body Leads,” is being backed by the Office of Net Assessment (ONA) which reports its findings to US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.

US officials are seeing the project as an opportunity which helps them anticipate the Russian President as tensions between Washington and Moscow over the crisis in Ukraine have intensified over the past days.

Some reports last week said that the US Intelligence Community was caught off guard by what they called Russia’s deployment of military troops into Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula.

However, the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper rejected such reports as “inaccurate” and defended US spy agencies’ performance through a statement on Wednesday.

Putin has dismissed the notion that the uniformed armed people without insignia who are currently present in Crimea are Russian soldiers. He says they are members of the Crimean self-defense forces.

Last week, CNN also reported that the US is stepping up its intelligence and surveillance operations against Russia in order to get “inside the Russian decision making cycle” regarding the situation in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon announced on Wednesday plans for expanding aviation training in Poland and sending more F-15 fighter jets to police the skies over Baltic states.

The US Navy destroyer USS Truxtun is also en route to the Black Sea for joint drills with Romanian and Bulgarian forces near Ukraine’s Crimea region.

The deployment of the US guided-missile destroyer comes after the parliament of Ukraine’s autonomous republic of Crimea voted in favor of joining the Russian Federation and holding a referendum in 10 days time so that Crimean citizens could give their views on the status of the region.

During a speech at the White House on Thursday, US President Barack Obama said the proposed referendum “would violate the Ukrainian Constitution and violate international law.”

Earlier in the day, Obama also signed an executive order to impose sanctions against Russian individuals whom the White House said are “responsible for or complicit in threatening the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.”

    In my opinion, Putin isn’t bluffing and his NATO adversaries shouldn’t underestimate him !

    • Defiant

      Russians never bluff, and they arent the bad guys in that story,just sayin.

  • A not so surprising possibility–I am convinced that Obama was “injected” into the politics of the U.S. for the sole purpose of destroying our way of life. Based on the political roller-coaster game of government “cat-and-mouse” the U.S. has been engaged in with Russia in the past years–is it too ridiculous an assumption that Putin and Obama have combined their energies to bring the U.S. to its knees?? Remember the picture of the meeting between Obama and Putin in which they were seated and Obama was leaning toward Putin, saying something?? I don’t recall the exact words that Obama said, but I believe it was–wait until after I am elected, or something to that effect.
    Can anyone out there help me on this???

    Obama made the Indonesian stance of defiance – hand on hip, crotch facing forward. The Muslim in Chief assumes the stance he learned in the madrassa. Sign of the Mahdi….

    Pentagon is studying body movements of Russian President Vladimir Putin in order to be able to anticipate his future actions?

    Have you notice his left arm? He used it to move his body to the right because he wanted to Fart. If he could have Farted downward to the seat everyone could have heard a sound like someone hitting a Drum but with a sound similiar to when the old bag Queen Elizabeth makes when she Farts. Russia was so energize so Macho Man and so Confident to prove a Point that they realized too late that it was a Bad Strategic Idea when they Test Fired an ICMBs Nuclear Missile even if it did not have any Nuclear Warhead. People do crazy things and make bad decision, but come on Firing an ICBMs to prove a Point of view how great and powerful they are was MAD. Now 9 more countries are seeking Missiles and Uranium to make Nuclear Warheads because they said that they do not want to be taken over again by Russia like the former Soviet Union did. Russia was Lucky that the Early Warning Radar Computers did not Identify the ICMBs Nuclear Missile firing on the 5 of March as a Threat to the USA, Egland, France and Germany. Those countries Defence Computers could have Launched an All Out Nuclear Attack automatically on Russia if the Defence Department did not re-program their “Artificial Intelligent” Defence Computer not to Fire any ICMBs on Russia the moment that Russia Fired an ICMBs. The Russian Viladimir Putin took a High Risk in firing an ICBMs, because if just one Defence IT Programmer in charge of re-programming those “Artificial Intelligent” Defence Computer was on a holiday playing Golf, the ICMBs could have Fire a couple of ICMBs on Russia automatically. Moscow could have been Caput on the 5th of March. Russia could have been under a Nuclear Winter right now. So, do not forget to say Thank You to the Sky Daddy God for sending Jesus to Earth to teach man to Love Your Neighobour, because you know it very well that if Islam was in Charge of the Computers that control the NUKES all Hell could have broken loose all over the Earth just like Syria, Lybia and Egypt.
