‘We Will Attack’: Ukrainian President Prepares for Offensive

    Just because they’re not talking about it anymore doesn’t mean it’s over.

    Hundreds have been killed in skirmishes between Ukrainian military forces and pro-Russian separatists in recent weeks and the ceasefire that has kept the Ukrainian (and Russian) militaries at bay and casualties relatively low given the circumstances has now come to a close, according to Ukraine’s western supported President Petro Poroshenko.

    Poroshenko, citing the failure of rebel forces to disarm, says the Ukrainian army is now preparing an offensive to free border crossings and pockets of rebel held territory.

    Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said he is halting a unilateral cease-fire in the conflict with pro-Russian separatists and says Ukrainian forces will go on the offensive against the rebels.

    A statement from Poroshenko on his website early Tuesday said the cease-fire is being halted and that “we will attack and we will free our country.”

    Rebels did not comply with Poroshenko’s latest push to get them to turn over key border crossings with Russia and permit international monitoring of the cease-fire.

    “The unique chance to put the peace plan into practice was not realized,” Poroshenko said in a speech prepared for delivery to the nation. “This happened because of the criminal actions of the fighters.”

    Poroshenko did not make any claims to the contested region of Crimea, which is currently being presided over by Russian interests.

    What remains to be seen is how Russian President Vladimir Putin will respond to Poroshenko’s military push. There are reportedly over one hundred thousand Russian troops deployed along the Ukranian border and reports as early as last month indicated that those units may be preparing a counter-offensive against the Ukranians in an effort to lend support to separatists in the region. On June 20th reports that Russian tanks had crossed into Ukraine sovereign territory raised fears that Putin was preparing an all out invasion.

    The situation on Russia’s border remains fluid with no clear path to peace having been established. If anything, tensions have left the region at a breaking point. According to the President of Poland, who called up his country’s Army reserves for the first time in its history, the world sits on the brink of war.

    President Obama, in a show of force and solidarity with the Ukranians, deployed several hundreds U.S. troops to Poland in April. The United States also leveled financial sanctions against top Russian diplomats and politicians that included asset forfeiture at western-friendly banks.

    It was rumored that the United States may even go after the personal fortune of Vladimir Putin, a move that many have suggested would inevitably lead to an all out East/West confrontation.

    Just days after that report Russian strategic bombers were spotted flying along the U.S. west coast. Coincidentally, air traffic control system in Southern California and  several hundred miles inland were reportedly taken out of service at around the same time.

    It is not clear where the United States stands on Ukraine President Poroshenko’s latest call for military strikes, nor can we see into the mind of Vladimir Putin and how far he is prepared to go to defend Russian interests not just from the Ukraine, but from western influence directly on his country’s border.

    Will Putin invade Ukraine in response to Poroshenko’s call to arms? Or will he, as John Galt FLA noted, become the Obama of Eurasia?

    Perhaps the real question is not whether Putin decides to invade the Ukraine. It’s how will President Obama respond if he does?

    There can be no half measures taken should Russia respond to Ukraine’s halting of the ceasefire.

    Russian and American media have both suggested that a confrontation between east and west would very quickly become a worst-case global scenario, with the end result being widespread thermo-nuclear warfare, an option that neither nation has taken off the table.

            I think I pointed out a few weeks/months back when this mess started, that Ukraine would eventually win this engagement. Putin does not want war. He has tried to move the rebel forces to the bargaining table for what???

            For political power.

            Under Ukrainian law as it is currently constituted, a Russian invasion of these contested areas would bring down every sanction from the West which would eventually lead to war.

            Putin does not want war, or real sanctions that would cripple his regime. Putin wants Hegemony. Political hegemony. That can only be secured through negotiation and changes to the Ukrainian Constitution. War would destroy assets in Ukraine that Putin wants. Full blown sanctions would bring Russia to chaos. He is not ready financially for all out conflict with the West.

            Why do you think people are trying to convene a Constitutional Convention in the United States? Its NOT because the government is following the Constitution; its because they want to legitimize their TREASON.

            Engage My Peeps, or the nation you love will be flooded with foreigners, your right to keep and bare arms will be revoked, and as a Patriot you will be labeled a “malcontent”, or domestic terrorist”. 🙁

            The US Constitution is OUR most powerful weapon. Demand its preeminence as the basis for law in America. 🙂

              D.K.

              Well.. we’ve seen potential conflicts fade away in Iran and Syria within the last year…and so will Ukraine.

              Ukraine just agreed to a massive E.U. trade deal last Friday and have now signed their eventual, inevitable, servitude…and will become the new debt slaves of the central banks/central “unelected” authorities of the E.U…

              The premise of a nuclear conflict and Obama reacting is but a dream..as the central planners on both sides utilize the predicable nuclear option all the time just to scare the the proles …
              ..meanwhile behind the scenes wrangling continues unbeknownst to the rest of us..

              As far as flooded with foreigners D.K.,we’re already there by a long shot..with nearly (estimated )11-15 million illegals here already ..boots on the ground.!!

              And now we have the new ‘humanitarian” effort ensuing by flying and housing untold thousands of so called “children’ into the country..it’s all a farce in my humble opinion..the feds were ‘soliciting” specialists over 6 months ago for this operation alone..

              One last rebuttal…we already have been tagged and bagged as ‘malcontents” and domestic terrorists for quite some time…

              And the so called SCOTUS has ignored the Constitution as well ..

              I do not foresee a Constitutional based future at all as it has been systematically dismantled for years..and between the neo cons,statists, leftists, and corporate plunderers…it has been shredded to but a mere whisper of its former self..

                Worldwide humanitarian vaccination projects are for depopulation

                “Just a very few years ago, Bill Gates publicly declared before a live audience that using vaccinations strategically may help reduce the world population by 15 percent.

                Many claimed it was a slip of tongue, like a verbal typo. The audience and mainstream media apparently ignored it.

                However, actual worldwide events indicate that population control is part or the world vaccination agenda.”

                “There is a great threat of nuclear war during an Olympic year… I see mile after mile of military tanks”. (This was written in the 1980’s).

                I told you’ll before that things would heat up (violence/wars) around the time of Gemini (because of squares and oppositions involving Uranus (sudden explosions) and pluto (rules atomic bombs– very powerful explosions!) Well, it did. We just left Gemini.

                Next period of equally tense and stressful placements (according to Astrology) is when the sun goes into Virgo. (21st of August until the 21st of September). Look for more anger/tension/aggression between US and Russia.

                So far, Putin has kept his cool. I admired him and felt for him. However, everyone has their limits. Hopefully, all will be OK. But things definitely will heat up again during that period!

                Posse: Eventually, Russia will invade Ukraine, but that is years away. Today, Ukraine will be assimilated into the EU, but the break-away “counties” will continue to press for autonomy.

                Putin renounced his right to invade Ukraine because he knows that full blown sanctions would crush Russia, leaving him no choice but all out war. That’s why he wants a political settlement.

                Russia cannot win a conventional war with the West and there are no winners in a nuclear conflict. 🙁

                • the renegade braveheart

                  DK, I have to respectfully disagree with your point about Russia. All NATO nations’ standing armies combined, including the US, are no match for the Russian Bear. We’ve been shedding nukes like a dog sheds hair going back to the 70s with those treaties we signed with the USSR. Putin can stop the West cold with one nuke attack and it’s game over. Not one member of the EU will be willing to have their country BBQ’d for Obama and the globalists. Russia can win a conventional war with the West also. Obama is cutting our defense budget and the NATO nations don’t spend any more than 5% of the national budgets on defense. We’ve always provided the lion’s share of muscle for NATO since its creation in 1949. Russia has more manpower than they admit to having; also more nukes.

              Two diplomatic messages from the WikiLeaks Public Library on U.S. Diplomacy indicate that newly elected President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko was an agent for United States State Department.

              A confidential message from the U.S. Embassy in Kiev on April 29, 2006 mentions the newly elected Ukraine president twice ” During an April 28 meeting with Ambassador, Our Ukraine (OU) insider Petro Poroshenko emphatically denied he was using his influence with the Prosecutor General to put pressure on Tymoshenko lieutenant Oleksandr.”

              ”During an April 28 meeting with Ambassador, Our Ukraine (OU) insider Petro Poroshenkodenied that he was behind Prosecutor General Oleksandr Medvedko’s recent decision to issue an arrest warrant for Tymoshenko lieutenant Oleksandr Turchynov. ” [to] question him about the alleged destruction of SBU [Ukraine intel] files on organized crime figure Seymon Mogilievich.” [Russian Mafia Boss of Bosses]

          On a brighter note, President Obama’s approval ratings are absolutely ‘skyrocketing’ in and around the hamlet of Bugtussle, GA. Folks in this area are of the belief that the Obama Administration is making that of former President Jimmy Carter look positively PRESIDENTIAL.

            Economist Martin Armstrong Warns Civil Unrest Is Rising Everywhere: “This Won’t End Pretty”

            “The greatest problem we have is misinformation. People simply do not comprehend why and how the economic policies of the post-war era are imploding. This whole agenda of socialism has sold a Utopian idea that the State is there for the people yet it is run by lawyers following their own self-interest. The pensions created for those in government drive the cost of government up exponentially with time. The political forces blame the rich and this merely creates a class warfare with no resolution for the future. Even confiscating all the wealth of the so-called rich will not sustain the system. Consequently, we just have to crash and burn and start all over again.”

            JOE LEGAL vs. JOSE ILLEGAL

            You have two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal”. Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California, Oregon and too many other states.

            Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.

            Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash “under the table”.

            Ready? Now pay attention . . .

            Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year.
            Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231.00.

            Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00 per year.
            Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.

            Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $24,031.00.

            Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

            Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year.
            Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.

            Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

            Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $9,631.00.

            Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month federal rent subsidy. Jose Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year.
            Jose Illegal still has $ 31,200.00.

            Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for insurance. Joe Legal now has $7,231.00.

            Jose Illegal says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance!” and still has $31,200.00.

            Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc.

            Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.

            Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.

            Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

            Joe Legal’s and Jose Illegal’s children both attend the same school. Joe Legal pays for his children’s lunches while Jose Illegal’s children get a government sponsored lunch.

            Jose Illegal’s children have an after school ESL program.

            Joe Legal’s children go home.

            Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.

            Do you get it, now?

          It’s really horrible whats happening over there! I go to the website “RT News” a lot and it breaks my heart to see what they are going through and knowing its because of my government! There is a video concerning a Russian journalist who was killed. If you haven’t watched it, please go there and see it– heart breaking!

          However, it seems Putin is pulling back! The other day, he asked congress to pull back the forces and they voted to do that… so he says that Ukraine is a separate country and can do what they want but he is welcolming refugees who are coming to Russia for safety. That is all he is doing.

          • sixpack

            It’s only the bankster-owned U.S. lamestream media reporting otherwise. The sad part is, most sheeple in the U.S. actually believe that Russia is trying to dominate the world. In truth, that’s just the NWO globalists, dividing and conquering the stupid people.

            I’ve known for quite some time that the depictions in the MSM, of Russia/Putin being evil, did not mesh with what I saw happening. For me, that was a big red flag.

            There’s only one way to sort out the truth. We have to open our eyes and SEE what is going on and compare it with what is being said in the media…if the two don’t match, we have a problem.

            Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see until you verify it. And above all, shut out everyone else’s opinions and form your own, based on what you see, think and know, not what you’re being told.

          During the so called, “cease fire” in Ukraine, a truck of people (men and women) went to collect their wounded from the government and suddenly, they were fired upon– shelling after shelling.

          The video shows this bus driver holding his head with blood pouring down, but still driving the bus, trying to get his group of people to safety. I think it said he collapsed along the way and had to pull over. And the cameraman who was also shot… yet kept asking about his camera. He died.

IF Putin doesn’t understand this, which of course he does, or allows this to happen, which he won’t. They would kill Putin or anyone else that would allow Russia to lose the war before even fighting a battle.

          The Russians are not stupid people, they understand about Geography and the shear number of troops and military hardwar that would require policing the Russian Ukraine border because Ukraine was allowed to join NATO. Again, suicide. IF Russia was even considering this they would not be testing nuke missile after missile. they would be bending over and taking it from BO by agreements to all sorts of nuclear arms reduction. Russia is ONLY positioning themselves to be at the most advantageous place they can be. Then…………………..BOOM goes the nuclear weapons. 🙁

              The world’s economy is collapsing. We know it, they know it and the banksters know it. So what to do? Well, the ONLY solution is to have a world war. It will eventually go nuclear and all the elites will be in their bunkers stocked for up to five years of survival. Their ultimate goal is to come out after about three years and rebuild the world into a “One World Government” with at least 90% of the world’s population dead. The government has stockpiled massive quantities of food, water, medical, etc for themselves and their families all across the U.S. in underground bunkers. When it goes nuclear the debris in the atmosphere will block the sun for about three years according to experts. In those three years most of life on the planet will cease to exist. This is what the banksters and elites are counting on. Hard to believe? Not really. Check out the Georgia Guidestones.

                Russia lost 25 million people in WW II. No other nation or race, or ethnic group has lost so much to fascism, and to say that Russia is fascist is simply delusional. The many ethnic Ukrainians welcomed Hitler when he invaded. Look at what they got, Babi Yar and much more.

                The whole presidential election was a FARCE. Now, this criminal post-coup government is killing civilians in south-eastern Ukraine. Maidan is not the whole Ukraine. South-east does not recognize the self-proclaimed government that ousted the free elected president Yanokovich. Besides, the new government is full of radical ultra-nationalists and neo-fascists. Poroshenko was/is an Agent for U.S. State Department. In short, he is a billionaire oligarch and NWO/Western puppet.

                The people fighting over there know what he is, even if we in the west do not.

              If the Russians go nuclear,it would bring back the population demographics of the 1950’s. The hoards of career EBT,Section 8 Housing,HUD,WIC check, AFDC,SNAP,medicade moochers would be reduced by 85 or 90
              percent. Jobs would be plentiful as we would rebuild, clean up, and restore the US. Why every major US city has swarms of ghetto areas that are dependant on the largess of the American tax payer………..

          The fact that our US commander-n-thief has sent 500 of our military personnel into Iraq. WTF?

          We don’t want, or need, another Iraq/Vietnam war.

          Putting more Americans in harms way in a country where we don’t have any business, is like pissing on a forest fire.

          Instead of sending Americans there, we should be bringing all Americans “out” of Iraq, and leaving those idiots to do what they do best; kill each other.

          • WhoWuddaThunkIt

            Obummer should have sent 500 solders to the U.S. Southern Border to turn away the invading Scofflaws.

        • Cede

          The problem with Putin attacking the Ukraine is, once he does, NATO have the excuse they’ve been waiting for to attack Putin. All we’ll hear is the MSM screaming that Putin is worse than Hitler …. Putin is evil ….. Putin must be stopped …… Putin is a despot. It’ll be the same bullshit rhetoric we heard for Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria. Folks, don’t get fooled into another bullshit war. Western Bankers want a massive war to kick start the US and EU economies.

          If Putin wants any chance to win, against the onslaught from NATO and the US, which would follow if he attacked Ukraine, he needs to attempt the impossible ……. If he rolls the dice, he needs to attack the whole of Europe. If he just attacked Ukraine, he’s lost before he starts. A surprise attack on Europe would give him 30-60 days headstart before the US and NATO could respond adequately.

          This really is “A game of Thrones” moment for the world. This century already belongs to China and Russia (and BRICS) The only way the US will remain Top Dog this century, is if we go to war to remove our opposition to world control ….. And win!! The US reserve currency is already dead and buried. The West only has one option left, and we are living it!!

          • Jeff

            Should Putin invade the Ukraine, there will be the usual political dog and pony show, the usual threats, calls for a diplomatic solution to end the crisis, the calls for sanctions, ect ect will be made.
            The reality is that no a damn thing will be done. NATO will do nothing except made threats. Germany will not go to war with Russia, they did that twice. Britan will not go to war Russia, they lack the martial will and balls to go to war. Europe likes to stay warm in the winter. Enough said.
            The former USA, will not go to war with Russia. This imperial country is a world power in decline and every one knows it. Even our enemies. Our military is over worked and exhausted. The country is broke/bankrupt. We can not supply the material needed for war against a well armed credible foe like Russia. Lastly the Government of the former USA is too busy with its soft war against the citizens of the former USA.
            None of us would be talking about SHTF, were it not a very real possiblity in the near future. We all know it will happen, when and what form it will take being the topics of conversation.
            Also let us not forget that other nations have their own agenda and will ally themselves with any nation if they think it is in their best interest. China will shaft us in a nano second, if they profit from it.

          • Tim

            Cede paints a picture which reminds me very much of Hitler and Germany in 1939. He was menaced by western capitalism, ie the usury of the jews, from within, and equally by the same thing from over in the godless Soviet Union. Which of course, should anyone still be unaware, was created by jewish bankers, and Jakob Schiff in particular, operating out of NYC.
            He was thus in a jewish vice from within, and from either side of the Atlantic. Jews of course having had full control over US policy, both domestic and foreign, since they instituted their scheme to steal your wealth with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913.
            Churchill facilitated the plan by accepting the sum of £40,000 in 1936 from the jewish chairman of Shell Oil; from that moment on he called for the destruction of Germany, as his forebears had done in the run-up to WW1.
            Churchill’s mother was Jenny Jerome.
            These antichrists cannot stop their totalitarian machinations. Their official state policy is encapsulated in the so-called Samson Option, which declares their willingmness to take the entire world out if necessary in a nuclear conflagration.
            I have certain doubts about Israeli nuclear capability, however; sometimes the belief that people have about your power are more potent than actually having that power.
            We see here a classic case for the involvement of the UN.
            Global interests are not served by everybody being incinerated by conventional or nuclear weapons. Thus the world response should be to enforce a settlement on the clearly illegitimate Ukraine government, which involves a splitting of the so-called nation into its two essential ethnically-based halves. Into neither half should NATO be allowed to penetrate; this would be a massively destabilizing influence upon Russian security concerns.
            The fact that the UN is not involving itself with this monumental issue speaks volumes about its hidden agenda; which can be best summarized by noting that it seeks chaos, out of which it hopes for the rising up of a New World Order, run by an elite of bankers and so-called intellectuals, in other words the Rockefeller-Kissinger-Rothschild axis of evil.
            As the Security Council is not commenting on the situation; the implication therefore is that all its constituent members are operating according to this same agenda.

          The Next Global Meltdown Is Baked In: Connecting The Dots Between Oil, Debt, Interest Rates And Risk

          “There are two words for what happens when real income declines and interest payments rise: impoverishment and insolvency. This dynamic is scale-invariant, meaning it works the same for individuals, households, enterprises and governments.

          Let’s connect the rising cost of oil to debt. As we all know, oil matters because it’s the foundation of our economy, and the cost of oil is built into virtually every sector in some way.

          …the cost of food rises and declines in lockstep with the cost of oil.”

          “The bottom line is the Fed can only keep the machine duct-taped together by suppressing the market’s pricing of risk.

          Suppressing the market’s ability to price risk is throwing common-sense fiscal caution to the winds; when risk arises from its drugged slumber despite the Fed’s best efforts to eliminate it, we will all reap what the Fed has sown.”

        OFF TOPIC: I have been dabbling in the production of alchohol (a prep I think will be important). Last year Aug 31 I bottled my first meade…a 3 LBS 1 gallon batch. I am sipping on this right now. I just wanted to say how easy it is to make this stuff but you have to let it sit for a few months to age it well. so heres the recipe. 3 LBS local honey ( boil it till it smells like roasted marshmellows) add a gallon of spring water and let cool to around 70 degrees. add Cote De Blance yeast or even brewers yeast from the grocery store and put into a gallon jug with an air lock ( a ballon with a tiny hole will work) after about a week (maybe longer ) your airlock will deflate or stop bubbling. transfer to another jug, wait a month and transfer again ( do this 3 times) then bottle and wait a min of 8 months…you now have a valuable trade item…if you raise bees you have an unending supply…;)

          Back in the nineties, a friend of mine got a good deal on some mixed honey and made up a batch in a fifty gallon barrel.

          He later took that batch of unfiltered meade/honey wine, and used a borrowed still (all stainless) and ran off some of the best tasting “honey brandy” one has ever poured over the taste buds.

        If the later, then US/EU Western Bankers are going to push until war happens anyway.

        • The Old Coach

          I want to think that preserving the independence of Ukrainians is the goal. Ukraine suffered massive genocide at the hands of Russians during the Stalin era. You can’t blame them for not wanting Russians in any position of power in their country, under any pretext.

      14. Frank Thoughts

        I don’t think Putin will do anything. The basic reality is this: most Russians enjoy being part of the world and being able to travel and do business where ever. Putin needs to keep most Russians onside to keep his regime going. Thus Putin will avoid hot war and instead wage silent war: economic warfare, spying, social warfare (anything to run down the US and the West).

        Putin walks a fine line: most Russians want to be freer and to get wealthier. A hot war with the US via Ukraine would destroy all of that.

        The key indicator of how bad things may get is air routes. Air routes tell you the truth as to when there will be real conflict and war. We have governments all over the world that call each other names and threaten each other but planes will safely take off from one to the other every day. That shows you the threats are all show – a piece of theater worthy of Broadway. If the air routes get disrupted or shut down, then that’s hot war. Even that can be a head fake: the British famously let a British Airways flight go to Kuwait when they knew Saddam was going to invade that day. Why did they sacrifice all those passengers? Because there were teams of SAS aboard who needed to get into the country to start target spotting. Your life is meaningless on the big chess board.

          Good observation…because that is what it is all about. These tensions are caused by control of hydrocarbons. Ukraine has some very promising shale fields that the International Oil Companies want to steal. Hunter was no doubt put there to form policy for Empire.

          They are also after the three “Baby Giants” known as Azerbejan (sp), Turkmenistan and Khazakistan for their hydrocarbons. It’s been “think tanked” to death.

          Russia is the biggest hydrocarbon producer in the world and the bankrupt EU is beholden to them for gas. The western Empire is not suited with this arrangement, since he who controls the most hydrocarbons makes the rules…thus you once again have Russia declared an enemy of “democracy and human rights”.

They say Ukrainians use “too much gas”.lol… They basically said that if subsidy cuts and efficiency wasn’t put into place and a payment made to Russia for gas, the Ukrainian people would probably freeze this winter.

          Bill Gates and Microsoft were at the forefront of this. Gates was providing virtually free IT education to people in India, Pakistan, Indonesia and the Philippines. I had to pay for mine on my own.

          Screw the globalists. All of them are on my list. And I will personally relish the opportunity to put the noose around all their necks.

            Walt—I read an article a few years ago.
            HR AND attorneys were being trained to receive applications, conduct interviews of Americans and trained how to REJECT them for whatever reason!
            Think I’m making this up?? Research!!

            I hope every one of those fricking HR gals and guys and attorneys are paying for that through unemployment–what goes around…; if not now, later!!

        You can easily judge a man , by how he treats those who can do nothing for him

          @VRF,
          Yup, same advice I have given to my daughters regarding dating. Most guys will want to be on their best behavior in how they treat their date. But if you want to see the guy as he really is, observe how he treats the “little people”, the unimportant ones, as the cashier in the check out line. That is the real guy.

        I woke up this morning around 5 am, and can’t shake this feeling that all hell is about to break loose. Not just over there, but here. Just a gut feeling.

          Patriot Mom,

          I understand that feeling. It is like waiting for the other shoe to drop.

          I read the financial news every day. The economic forecast is NOT good. It is going to get much worse. Sadly, so few are prepared.

          We realize that it is not if, but when.

          Every day is a gift. Live, laugh, pray and hug your loved ones.

        I look at my low-nuke-information family, friends and associates, and recall the modified Kipling: “If you can keep your wits about you while everyone else is losing theirs, maybe you haven’t heard the news…”

        And one of these days-weeks-months all of us will be losing it…

        Tribe puppets, Obama and Cameron, will tell Putin that a Russian attack on Kiev will be considered an attack on Washington or London. That will allow the ethnic cleansing of Russians to continue

        The nuke attack on the USA won’t be announced beforehand.

        In the meantime, Obama will push ahead with his ISIS destabilizations of Iraq, Syria and the southern border of the US.

        Until then we will all float on like in that Modest Mouse song.

        Well… like Samuel L. Jackson said in Jurassic Park-
        “Hold on to your butts…”

        NATO is getting involved in the Ukraine crisis. That should work out well. NOT!

        Air Force Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, the Supreme Allied Commander of NATO’s Allied Command Operations, announced Monday the United States will send troops “to help respond to Russian aggression in Ukraine,” according to McClatchy.

        “It’s a very momentous time in Europe, probably the most since the end of the Cold War, especially because of the recent changes wrought by Russia,” Breedlove said from the Pentagon.

        “In this operation, we will continue to demonstrate our continued commitment to the collective security of NATO and dedication to the enduring peace and stability in the region, in light of the Russian intervention in Ukraine specifically,” the four star general explained.

        Breedlove claims Russia has supplied separatists with anti-aircraft weaponry, tanks, personnel carriers and other heavy weapons. He said there’s “a very good likelihood” that Russian anti-aircraft artillery was used to shoot down a Ukrainian transport plane June 14.

        “Russian irregular forces are very active inside eastern Ukraine,” Breedlove said. “Russian-backed forces are active inside eastern Ukraine. And Russian financing is very active inside eastern Ukraine.”

        Russia has denied the accusations. “It’s all nonsense, there are no special units, special forces or instructors in the east of Ukraine,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said in April.

        Breedlove made his announcement hours before new violence broke out after a cease-fire expired.

        “The active phase of the counterterrorism operation resumed this morning,” the chairman of Ukraine’s parliament, Oleksandr Turchynov, told legislators. “Our armed forces are hitting the bases and outposts of terrorists.”

        Putin criticized the resumption of military action by the Poroshenko government in Kyiv.

        “Unfortunately, President Poroshenko has resolved to resume military action,” Putin said during a Moscow meeting of Russian ambassadors. “We failed to convince him that the road to a secure, stable and inviolable peace cannot lie through war.”

        those who say obama would be scared to act is not thinking like an american. obama would be more scared to do nothing and seem like a coward to his people. if history serves as a reminder, it’s that americans love to play the hero…and if SHTF it’s that kind of attitude that will start up a whole mess of sh1t, especially this time.

        russia, NK, china are just fking waiting…and this is exactly the type of diversion they’ve been waiting for. while NA troops have been thinning out all over the globe, this is the worst time for america to be playing world police.

        mark my words. if america jumps into this…they’re finished.
