SIMFEROPOL, Crimea American and Ukrainian officials warned Sunday that Russia may be poised to expand its territorial conquest into eastern Ukraine and beyond, with a senior NATO official saying that Moscow might even order its troops to cross Ukraine to reach Moldova.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsya, appearing on ABCs This Week with George Stephanopoulos, said the prospect of war with Russia is growing.
We dont know what [Russian President Vladimir] Putin has in his mind and what will be his decision, Deshchytsya said. Thats why this situation is becoming even more explosive than it used to be a week ago.

Looks pretty much like our guys in Boston.
I believe Putin is defeating Obama quite easily without them.
I’m afraid the question of nuclear weapons use is whether or not Putin sees an advantage without the cascading retaliation of the now defunct MAD days. Maybe we’ll see a nuke before he moves into Western Europe.
I’m concerned that obama will set off a nuke and blame Putin. I wouldn’t put anything past the evil bastards who rule this country.
Great Book! I’ve read it several times, enough to pick out errors that Clancy made. I enjoyed it every time.
