“If this order in Europe collapses, the US will be in trouble. If it goes to hell then certainly American interests will be at great risk.” ~ Mikheil Saakashvili, president of Georgia
Calling for the U.S. to take punitive action against the Communists of Russia, the Georgian President (who has been on the receiving end of Putin’s thuggery) stated today that this could turn into a real war between two big European countries, the Ukraine and Russia, and that U.S. interests are indeed at stake here. He also called on the US to expell Russia from the G8 and “send tax inspectors” into banks where there is Russian interests.
Did he not hear? We have a weak doper Kenyan for President? Putin knows this and has no respect for the Kenyan. Zero. And why should he? The Kenyan called him, and then skipped out on his own national security briefing! If we did move (which would be a huge mistake), he would no doubt place ROE restrictions that prevented us from shooting anyone wearing a Russian uniform.
The Ukrainian defense ministry has said it had information that unknown “radical forces” were planning to try to disarm its military units in Crimea and warned against such action.
The ministry said in a statement on its Website:
“In the case of such unknown actions, the Ukrainian armed forces will act in accordance with the laws of Ukraine and the regulations of the Ukrainian armed forces.”
Look for Putin to begin the blood slaughter soon. Look for the US to meander along. At the whims of Europe.
