So much for Joe Biden's peace-keeping salvation mission to Kiev...

As Bloomberg reports, Pro-Russian separatists have “crossed line,” Ukraine acting President Oleksandr Turchynov says in statement posted on parliament website.

this ain't no game brother...and damn skippy i'm popping off at the mouth. "next up the bullets start doing the talking" and that's the end of talking and that is mission FAIL.

Those US forces will need to be in Minsk..quite possibly within the next 48 hours....and in sufficient numbers (20,000) in order to move on Kiev. Needless to say "this will come as a surprise to the American People" as even with the most contorted logic no one can possibly argue "this is being done in the name of peace."

So indeed "the rationale for war will have to be explained."

One hell of a peace dividend so of course stocks are rallying. "They have better intel."

For all we know they're driving this...this...this...what is this again?

Ah! "Diplomacy."

Anyone have a link to a Ukraine map showing the agricultural areas?

Don't care about manufacturing.  That will all go to China.  The agriculture is all that matters for those people, since they have no oil.

Never mind.  Here's an Arab centric analysis of Ukraine agriculture:

Arab centric because apparently most of the grain exports go to the Middle East. 

71% of the land is arable (!!!) but the text says south, central and eastern regions is where most is grown. 4th largest grain exporter in the world.

Non Farm Payrolls don't mean much.  25% of the workforce works on farms.

The EU and US are being monumentally stupid.  There's nothing in the west.  OTOH it explains why the Ukrainian faux gov't refuses to let the east and south go.  THEY at least understand where the bread is buttered.

Ukraine alert as politician 'killed'


Acting Ukraine president calls for relaunch of anti-terrorist operation in east after politician "tortured to death"


Ukraine's acting president has relaunched military operations against pro-Russian militants in the east after two men, one a local politician, were found "tortured to death".

Oleksandr Turchynov said the politician, named as Vladimir Rybak, was found near rebel-held Sloviansk.

"The terrorists who effectively took the whole Donetsk region hostage have now gone too far," he said.

The move came as US Vice-President Joe Biden was visiting Ukraine.

Ukraine: Poland trained putchists two months in advance

by Thierry Meyssan

Lies have shorter and shorter legs. Two months after the change of regime in Kiev, the Polish press has disclosed the role of Donald Tusk’s government in preparing the coup. The new revelations belie Western discourse and demonstrate that the current interim government of Oleksandr Tourtchynov was imposed by NATO in violation of international law.

Okay. Because he's all over the news I'm going to feed Putin to the tiger.

So does the tiger end up killing and eating Putin? I'm thinking, no. Does Putin pwn the tiger? Probably not, Kali is a serious bad-ass. Does anyone have a feel for how this ends?

Maybe they wrestle, discover they respect each other, mark their territories, and return to their corners. Is that too sappy?

Maybe I just have to skip it.

Anyone with an idea what happens when Putin goes up against a tiger, let me know.

Putin probably has his military specialists all over east Ukraine mixing in with their Native Russian buds and being well received handing out equipment, training, advice and no doubt some active covert support. Officially nobodys there of course. Meantime whats going on with those Greystone boys? Anyways lots of backup sitting on the Russian border, Russia been quite clear about using nukes if this thing goes past a proxy action and NATO fucks with them directly, with all those troops on the border Putin seems willing to do a little open conventional war with the west if need be, inside Ukraine. As Kiev contemplates dealing with the "terrorists" Vlad must be smirking and thinking "Go ahead, make my day". In the meantime Uncle Joe's chatting up a crock of smiley shit.

Earlier I would have read "quite clear about using the nukes" and thought yeah sure what'ev nobody uses nukes.

Right now, not so sure.

If this goes hot I'm able to see a small exchange of theatre nukes. Maybe 2 or 3 on each side. And then cooler heads will prevail as they like to say.

I place this eventuality squarely in the US and allies side. This is all us, we're doing it, it will be our fault. I am not going to blame the Russians even if they fire first.

The cold war is over but he US did not "win". All that happened was the species avoided an extinction event. If anything the US then lost an opportunity to disarm the world. Instead the US armed to the teeth -- including militarizing local police -- and presented itself as an oil-devouring monster on the world stage.

So if it's all monsters now then nukes it's going to be.

I don't think Russia will nuke the US mainland. But propose that question to me again in 3 months and we'll see if I hold to it.

Not being alarmist, folks. I shoot pretty straight. I'm reading the tea leaves like everyone else, all I do is call it how I see it, and right now what I'm seeing is damned scary.
