Captain Romchik should get his artillery spotting and designation correct. Because if the Russians wanted to take out his position…it would have been done..even under the command of a not to bright artillery officer.

The border is not delimited in many places, apparently two APC got lost behind the column, and took a wrong turn to Ukraine.

No harm was done, Ukrainian armor wondered into Russia couple months ago too, no one makes a big deal out of it.

About 500 Ukrainian soldiers crossed into Russia, all treated well, free food and medical, dozens of injured Ukrainian processed free of charge.

I hope Ukraine doesn’t make a mistake.

Is the US State Dept ever going to fess up about being responsible for this whole mess in the first place? The Nuland/Pyatt tapes confirm deep US State Dept. involvement in Yanukovich’s overthrow, and the Ashton/Paet tape indicates that the shootings of both police and demonstrators were by provocateurs hired by someone on or backing the Maidan side. Find them on youtube, listen, and then think about it. Especially ponder on the fact that this essential part of the picture of who is at fault here never seems to get mentioned much…

Yes you come home and grab your 122 mm canon or Grad missile system (that you bought in local store certainly). Those guys don’t even bother to think what they say.

The journalists know what to say about who says what to actually convince everyone the sanctions were well-grounded.
