Maybe we can divert our troops coming home from Afghanistan right over to Ukraine.

Wouldn’t it be nice if those US troops were going to our southern border?

Let me guess: This is a previously planned, many years ago, exercise... normal procedure.

Am I right? What do I win?

They could do some exercises together - I think Ukraine is resigned to the loss of Crimea - sensible decision in withdrawing their troops.

They’re divorcing themselves from Crimea but from Russia as well. Like I always like to say, better a good divorce than a bad civil war.

Ukraine is going to defend its territory but has no interest in picking a fight with the Crimeans or provoking a war with Russia.

I’m seeing reports of pogroms in Kievs, Right Sector thugs going door to door and asking what political allegiance people have, throwing people out of flats to give to “heroes”, etc.

If true, and this spreads to the East, Russia will intervene.

If that does happen, Russia will definitely intervene. At this point, its too soon to say where or when the next flash point might ignite.

I hope the Ukraine security chief, whoever he his, is just blowing off some air.

Putting NATO forces into Ukraine would be considered a serious provocation by Putin. Obama and his 'Team' are not deep strategic thinkers and this move has to be considered for response and next moves. While this might be a move that would give Putin pause, it could have the opposite effect and put dangerously small US Military assets at risk.

In eastern Ukraine, recent polls show 3/4 rejecting the Kiev regime/junta.

Today, the regime announced it will take all Ukrainians’ bank accounts over a certain level of savings.

The regime is making every bad decision possible (because they are crazy), and likely cutting its days short.

Correction to last post, the regime will “tax”, not “take”, all accounts over certain level.

I’ve been posting that after 5 years of getting Greeced by the EU and others, the rest of the Ukraine will beg to return to Russia.

Now, it appears that while getting Greeced, they will get Cyprused as well. “Today, the regime announced it will take/tax all Ukrainians’ bank accounts over a certain level of savings.”

The Liberals always claimed that the Conservatives were provoking Russia; e.g., Reagan the sleepy warmonger; etc; however, it is the Liberals that are provoking Russia now. What is going on? Are the Liberals mad that Pres. Putin hasn't restored Communism to Russia? Or do Liberals suffer such psychological projection that they ALWAYS accuse their opponents of the odious/stupid things that they themselves do?

Is the Liberals' psychological projection part of their Liberalism being a mental illness malady?

I just had a very troubling thought.

What if Obama defies conventional wisdom and DOES send the military?

What better way to destroy America than to commit us to a war that will wipe us out militarily and economically?

So what. If Right Sector and Ukraine want to remove Communists and other pro-Russians, let them at it. Ukraine is in need of a good anti-Communist scrubbing.

The Ukraine is way more economicly dysfunctional than Russia.
They are still following much of the old Communist economic model that Russia and most of the old Soviet satellites shed long ago.

And that is a real problem for them.

WHERE?

At Fort Worth ou Manchester?

We saw what they are capable of, the “brave” Ukrainian military leaving Sevastopol, tail between legs.

“The Ukraine is way more economicly dysfunctional than Russia.”

It was proven twice, in 2006 and 2009, when Russia turned off the pipelines’ taps.

Seventy-two military units and institutions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which have been deployed to Crimea, have raised the Russian flag over their bases.

“Commanders and officials of 72 military units and institutions and ships of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry have decided to voluntarily join the armed forces of Russia for further military service,” officials in Crimea said.

I call BS. Please provide a source.

“If true, and this spreads to the East, Russia will intervene.”

Oh, those poor poor Russians. I suspect that the source is RT or KGB Daily.
