NATO general warns of further Russian aggression

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 ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” said the prospect of war with Russia is growing.

“We don’t know what [Russian President Vladimir] Putin has in his mind and what will be his decision,” Deshchytsya said. “That’s why this situation is becoming even more explosive than it used to be a week ago.”

In Brussels, U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Europe, said Russia had assembled a large force on Ukraine’s eastern border that could be planning to head for Moldova’s separatist Transnistria region, 200 miles away.

The warnings came as Russia was finalizing its takeover of Ukrainian military bases in Crimea, the peninsula it occupied at the start of March and subsequently annexed.

They got no real resistance so why would they stop? Of course Putin will continue pushing, and since we didn’t stop him this time resistance the next time will be that much tougher.

Thanks for posting that. I wonder how close we really are to seeing a nuclear weapon used.

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.
