The Obama administration reportedly is withholding even non-lethal military aid to Ukraine for fear it could further inflame tensions -- despite already intensifying clashes between the country's government and pro-Russia militiamen.
A critical report detailing the requests was sent to Congress and the White House by retired Gen. Wesley Clark and former Defense Department official Phillip Karber, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
After returning from a trip to Ukraine, Clark and Karber reportedly wrote that the U.S. government had turned down requests for everything from body armor to night-vision goggles to communications equipment. The Obama administration apparently was concerned that type of aid would be seen as "provocative."
Clark and Karber urged the administration to reverse those decisions, calling the approach "seriously flawed," according to the Free Beacon.
The report comes as some on Capitol Hill urge the Obama administration to step up its support for the Ukraine government amid concerns that Moscow is fomenting the unrest in the country's eastern region.
Ukraine's government moved against demonstrators on Tuesday, in the first military action by the government after acting President Oleksandr Turchynov announced an "anti-terrorist operation" against the separatists who have seized control of numerous buildings.

Obama is not just a flamer...he is inflamingly gay.
Flame away, Gurlly Maan.
Obama and Putin sittin’ in a tree...
Is Barry still sending them some samwiches and tater chips?
But Putin sure ain't gay. He'd rip Obama's throat out with his teeth if Obama made a gay move on him. And Obama would apologize for being an irritant.
That phone call yesterday with Putin must have really rattled Obama, he’s running scared.
LOL. didn't mean it literally. It's more like Putin and Obama are tyrannical brothers...except Putin is the straight one.
Maybe Obama could send them some “Mom Jeans.”
I am afraid that you’re right.
Putin to Obama: "Buzz off punk, or I'll nuke every golf course in North America".
