Posted on 04/10/2014 10:40:28 AM PDT by McGruff
Nato has released satellite images of the Russian military buildup on Ukraines eastern border: a powerful concentration of fighter planes, helicopters, artillery, infantry and special forces which officials say could be ready to move with just 12 hours notice.
The images appear to undermine official suggestions from Moscow that there is nothing unusual about the troop movements, nor any reason to be alarmed.

Nope. Those are just Russian tourists.
Another report here.
Senior military officers of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization described Russian military forces deployed in more than 100 makeshift bases just across the border with Ukraine as being in a state of high readinessable to move swiftly within hours of a command from the highest level.
Russian invasion? The last OSCE inspection of Russian border regions turned up nothing.
I guess we’ll just have to take NATO’s word for it that Russia stands poised to invade Ukraine at a moment’s notice.
Because the Russians wouldn't allow inspection. LOL
Not our problem.
They were allowed in per Russia’s agreement with the West. Of course if NATO thinks this is offensive potential, it can request Russia to allow new inspections of its border regions.
They were not allowed to go where they wanted to go.
I’m just wondering why the Russians are able to put military on their borders while ours cant even carry water pistols on-base?
NATO’s top military commander in Europe, drafting countermoves to the Russian military threat against Ukraine, said Wednesday they could include deployment of American troops to alliance member states in Eastern Europe now feeling at risk.
U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove told The Associated Press he wouldn’t “write off involvement by any nation, to include the United States.”
Meanwhile, back in the former great USofA the BLM is forcibly removing a cattle rancher from ancestral land. And nobody in state or local government has the guts to send in protection for the family.
When the Inter-Allied Rhineland High Commission (American, Belgian, British and French forces) abandoned the Watch on the Rhine in the 1930’s, nothing was going on that should alarm anybody. Didn’t Neville Chamberlain come back with a treaty guaranteeing “peace in our time”?
That went really well.
Reagan would be doing something.
Reagan was not a libertarian on foreign policy like Obama is.
Reagan was extremely aggressive and confrontational against the Soviet Union, on an international scale, even in Europe he confronted the full force of the international left when he installed the mid range missiles and built up 435,000 American troops on Soviet borders.
Reagan would be looking to restrain this KGB leader of Russian.
Just how do people think Russia would respond to the Obama/Soros/sodomite EU overthrow of their most important neighbor and strategic ally? Do think they would go into a corner and sulk or perhaps send a congratulatory fruit basket?
You’re right. It figures completely that Putin will mount an invasion. Ukraine has it coming if they think they can break free from Putin, right?
Hey now, Putin is just misunderstood . . . he only has the best interest of Ukraine at heart.
I wonder if Count of Monte Fisto was always a quisling.
Sodomites? So Ukraine deserves to be invaded because of Soros and sodomy? What row do you sit in at the Westboro Baptist Church, front?
I noticed that on another thread today Mr. Monty Fister forgot to insert the word sodomite in his comment.
“Just how do people think Russia would respond to the Obama/Soros/sodomite EU overthrow of their most important neighbor and strategic ally?”
Russia Today/Alex Jones Bullsh*t. The people of Ukraine freed themselves from a puppet dictator serving a foreign power that murdered millions of Ukrainians over the last century. The Kremlin butchers responded as any tyrant responds to disobedient subjects.
I have to wonder at the fact that a sizable portion of posters here are pretty much openly cheering for Russia against the US. It is not just being against Obama or thinking the US federal government needs trimming, they are outright praising Putin. So basically their dream government is a dictator we a tough guy image, who represses opposition, builds an empire with aggressive warfare, eviscerates civil liberties including destroying the free press, and shoves homosexuals back in the closet using skin heads dressed in police uniforms.
I have a feeling that if the US ever goes to war with Russia and loses, some of these Freepers will end up dressed in KGB (FSB these days) uniforms, going around beating up and arresting protesters/journalists/homosexuals for glorious leader.
Russia has no WMD!
No blood for borscht!
No war for big borscht!
No imperialist war for borscht!
How many lives per bowl (of borscht)?
(Just attempting to recycle some old anti-war slogans.)
In all honesty, I can see how Russia does not respect or fear us anymore when all this country cares about is fag marriage and fags playing sports (according to the media, our communist government, and many of our population). I hardly recognize this country anymore. Predators can always sense weakness.
And there is nothing we can do anyway. We have very few ways of projecting force in that region without the consequences being nuclear war. All these arm chair commandos need to study strategy. If Russia is serious, we might be able to stop them at the Channel.
I’m waiting for the Ukrainian government, at the first sign of a Russian invasion movement, to hold a press conference and say:
“Remember all our nuclear weapons we surrendered to the West, well, we kept a few that we didn’t tell you about.
To quote your late President Reagan, when the Russians make their move, we will tell our forces, “let the bombings begin”.
Gonna be one helluva show, and they’re gonna need more Russian soldiers, ones who don’t glow in the dark.
Was the Malaysian airliner in those satellite photos? Just wondering.
Ask 1rudeboy that, he’s a big open borders fanatic.
