I am far more concerned about NATO’s actions in Ukraine. NATO is now the US attack dog, not Europe’s guard dog. Will the US tell NATO to heighten tensions further?

Sudetenland September 1938 all over again. Obama is the new Chamberlain and Merkel is the new Daladier. Appeasement at its best.

Standard Reuters editorial policy is to blame everything on Israel. So that can’t be far behind.

Putin imagines he is playing a grand game of chess in European affairs and has even cited desires to obtain Finland, and although his Ukraine government were ousted out of power he reckons that the west can be fended off until his army rolls in before Ukraine has fair and democratic elections on the 25th of May.

The actions that Putin fears the most as this will throw all his pieces off the chess board and halt his power completely are as follows.

1…..NATO placing Ukraine under temporary protection until its security issues
are sorted out.

2…..A strong set of Economic sanctions over the invasion of Crimea that would mean the Russian people would have to consider there leaders actions as wrong and not a “no penalty game plan”
