WWIII ? More Likely, The End of America As a Nation of Any Influence Globally.

I said a couple of weeks ago, that Putin called Obama to tell him what he intended to do in the Ukraine and to let Obama know that there isn't anything that he or America can do about it. Personally, I know that the United States still has the military ability to both deter and defeat Russia, the problem is, we no longer have the collective willpower or leadership. And Vadimir Putin and the rest of the world now knows it.

Will the Russians invade? Maybe that's a definition that will become parsed in the very near future, but the bottom line is that Russia will soon be the only authority in the Ukraine and they will more than likely accomplish that without firing a shot.

One thing we can count on, the no balls Untied Nations and the NATO pack countries will not do anything absent America's leadership and seeing as how we are presently leaderless, the Ukraine is a done deal for the Russians. Stay tuned and watch what unfolds.


EDWARD LUCAS: I hope I'm wrong but historians may look back and say this was the start of World War III

  • 'Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West'
  • 'We can chose to surrender any responsibility we have to protect Ukraine and the Baltic states'
  • 'Or we can mount a last-ditch attempt to deter Russia from furthering its imperial ambitions'
  • 'If we choose to resist Putin, we will risk a terrifying miltary escalation'
  • 'I do not think it an exaggeration to say this could bring us to the brink of nuclear war'
Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape.

Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag.

They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades.
Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.
