New Dire Warnings on Russia: The Move That Could Lead to ‘Catastrophe’
The Blaze ^ | 14 Mar 14 | Sara Carter

Russia’s increased military buildup along Ukraine’s eastern border signals the possibility of a full-scale invasion and one that could lead to a worst-case global scenario, pitting NATO allies against old Russian foes and debilitating the global economy to nothing short of catastrophe if nothing is done to stop Moscow’s aggression, U.S. officials and analysts told TheBlaze.

And the crisis seems to be heading in that direction.

On Friday, more Russian troops and armored vehicles were seen offloading from ships in the Crimean harbor, reporters in the area said. The day before, Russia had already massed more than 8,000 troops and armored vehicles along three regions of Ukraine’s eastern border conducting war games. The move alarmed interim Ukraine President Oleksander Turchynov, who announced he had called up 60,000 of his nation’s national guard in preparation for a possible “full-scale” Russian invasion.

Speaking in Kiev, Sen. John McCain called Saturday for the United States to provide long-term military assistance to Ukraine, saying it is "the right and decent thing to do,"

Belgium? Holland? Italy?

Give me a break! NATO is a farce which is about to be exposed.

If we were smart, we would stay the hell away from this mess.

The worst "catastrophe" in this situation is American "leadership".

Have the idiot Tim Kaine of Virginia have his idiot idol, Obama, you know, call for restraint and a cease-fire should there be shooting. You know, like gangsta talk.

Took me a minute, but in the context...

Okay... I see your point.

McCain! You war mongering posterboy for the evil, satanic, filth that has infected our government for a very long time. You need to go away and suffer horrendous nightmares from your days of captivity as a prisoner of war.
Please keep your evil, murderous thoughts to yourself and allow your handlers to find some other brain impaired psychotic imbecile to shill for their demented plans.
Oh, BTW, if you think you're going to get us involved in a nuclear war with Russia, which is your aim, you best think again.
You will never see coming what is about to happen to you and your ilk.

As I told the peace-nicks way back when, "Don't worry, they'll deliver!"

We do not have the ability to do anything to stop what Russia intends to do - even if it takes over all of Europe.

We are going to rue the day we did not have the ability to intervene to stop it before it cost us everything we have.

But then, Obama is a Trojan Horse, and tore us down from within and made it possible for us to be conquered - which I believe is the end-game for this regime.

This is the biggest danger of having a leftist president...open warfare as a result of weakness.

Yes, and I hope the disgusting, pitiful, useful idiot, liberal nut jobs will be the first victims in the endgame. If you tried, you could not imagine a more nihilist bunch of worthless, numb skull trash in your life? The endgame is hardballs and Obummer has none.

I believe the events in Crimea and the Ukraine have something significant to do with Biblical prophecy and coming world events. We are witnessing historic changes, to maps, and empires.

2014-2015 will be "interesting" times.
