It Begins: Canada To Send Military Equipment To Ukraine

Tyler Durden's picture

And so it begins.

Moments ago Bloomberg reported, citing Defense minister Rob Nicholson speaking in Trenton, Ontario, that Canada, a NATO member, will send military equipment to Ukraine. Ukraine will in turn supposedly use supplies to protect eastern border Nicholson speaking to reporters, although perhaps one should ask ISIS where US military equipment that was meant for Al-Qaeda, pardon, Syrian rebels to dethrone Assad ended up...

To be sure this expansion is purely symbolic however the first formal entrance of a NATO member into the Ukraine conflict will assure it only escalates from here.

What happens next is anyone's guess, however with this formal expansion of the "regional" proxy war to include western powers, thereby making the new Cold War quite warm, Putin will certainly take an appropriate response seeing what was until now a confined civil war involving "only" Ukraine participants, if only on paper, expand into global. Keep in mind that while Putin may well have been supporting the east Ukraine rebels, there was never any formal admission of this. Now that brand new NATO forces will be effectively on the Russian borders, the Kremlin may have just the pretext it needed to justify its military expansion into a conflict which it will claim is merely for self-preservation against clear NATO involvement and expansion, i.e., "defensive."

Furthemore, since Canada is now involved, expect other NATO member countries to also jump in, thus provoking the Russian bear that much more and leading to a sequence of events that will hardly be pleasant for anyone.

I wonder what the NSA has on the Prime Minister of Canada, to make him do something so stupid. Perhaps he was caught in the toilet with some underage boys>>>?

There are already Poles, Africans, and other mercenaries there along with a ton of contractors too.  The resistance has wiped out so much of their equipment that this report does not surprise me.  Both sides are getting groups of fighters and equipment from outside sources.  Some of the Oligarchs have private armies as well.

Make no mistake, WWIII is coming.  These are the opening acts.  The Luciferian Oligarchs are going to get us down to 500 mil one way or another.   You have about 4-8 years to get ready. Unless we overthrow the Oligarchs by then.

I think Hussein O'Bama is a genius persuading the EU and Canadians to throw themselves under the bus for us. Why wasste our own Yutes when they are so willing and ready to jump at our beckoning?

You don't give Barry enuff credit.

Son of, its not Barry that's so persuasive. Its the NSA.

PM Harper is controlled by a small group of Jewish elite in Montreal and Toronto also. He has to humor them at the very least over this Ukraine business. If Harper was to lose the next election the radical left would win, the "Canadian Obama" Justin Trudeau would be in charge. It's basically a choice between 2 turds, Harper is the least smelly one.

Lots of Ukrainians out in the Prairie Provinces, many of whom are 20th century arrivals and can be presumed to be somewhat (or very) anti-Russian. 

Between the urban internationalist turd-lickers, the downhome Ukies of Saskatchewan, and his freedom-loving southern neighbor, Harper's decision is a no-brainer.  So to speak.

Every day the "news" shocks me. Canadians now war-mongering....WFT!?

 

The next thing you'll tell me is we are bringing Ebola into the country intentionanlly!

Google 'Canadian Holocaust'. They were all in the toilet with little kids, then cut them up into pieces for Lord Lucifer and threw the pieces (what they didn't eat) into big pits. Leads straight to London and Rome.

Fuckers. Gawd, I hope there's a Hell.

You do understand that terms like "break a leg" don't actually mean you want someone to break their leg, right?

That's harsh. PCRs not that old.

Seek_Truth's picture

Indeed - as PCR states: " Putin can bring down the economies of Europe and throw all of Europe into political and economic chaos simply by turning off the energy supply. Putin would not have to turn off the energy supply for very long before Europe tells Washington good-bye and comes to terms with Russia. The longer Putin waits, the longer Europe has to prepare against Russia’s best weapon that can be used to peacefully resolve the conflict that Washington has orchestrated."

Stick a fork in it.

Remember that old joke, "Why is drinking American beer like having sex on a boat? Because it's fucking close to water."

Well, Canadians just fuck right in the water.

Here's a REAL beer - and it's even American!
