Putin escalating War in Ukraine

Putin escalating War in Ukraine

The Faithful Five know I have been predicting another Putin military breakout as he slowly makes his way toward Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, his actual targets.

Ignore all the noise being generated that Trump will be easy on Putin, if Putin keeps this crap up past January 20th, he will get a very different response than he would have from Obama, and I’ll bet Putin knows it.

The piece below from AFP, is about as depressing as it can get, the heavy armament numbers at the bottom are particularly sad. War is coming, and Putin is the reason; just as Hitler was the reason for the second world war.

KIEV (AFP) – The chief European monitor for the war in Ukraine warned Thursday that a “massive upsurge in violence” has seen fighting between Kiev’s forces and pro-Russian rebels reach levels not seen in months.
The statement by Alexander Hug of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) came a day after the body hailed progress toward a New Year’s truce agreement that must still be approved by the insurgents.

Ukrainian forces have lost nearly 10 soldiers since Sunday the conflict that has simmered in the European Union’s backyard since 2014.

The eastern separatists have rarely disclosed their own losses during clashes that have claimed nearly 10,000 lives according to the UN.

Hug that his mission “recorded a 75 percent increase in the number of ceasefire violations compared to previous week.”

He added that use of heavy weapons banned and listed in a tattered February 2015 peace agreement that neither side followed had risen by 300 percent.

    And remind me again why the US has refused to answer pleas by Ukraine to sell them modern weaponry? Is it because we think that they will be conquered and do not want our weapons to fall into Soviet (I mean, Russian) hands? i think it is the same rational for disarming all US citizens. The US led the total disarmament of Ukraine in teh first place!!

    As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition – weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea. In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site. The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to include artillery, small arms, anti-aircraft weapons, and conventional ammunition of all kinds. After a stopover in London, the senators returned to Washington and declared that the U.S. should devote funds to speed up the destruction of more than 400,000 small arms, 1,000 anti-aircraft missiles, and more than 15,000 tons of ammunition.

    As Karl said recently, with friends like the Obama team’s US who needs enemies? Now Trump has an absolute moral duty to get actively involved in fighting to come in Ukraine. If he does, he will have to explain to the American people that it is the result of the grade school quality international diplomacy of the past 8 years.

    It is one thing to de-escalate the Ukraine conflict potential by disarmament if you pan to honor your military commitment to them if they are attacked. It is totally immoral to disarm them if you are not willing to provide the defense you promised. War there would result in potentially tens or hundreds of thousands dead. Would never have happened with a well armed well trained Ukranian military and NATO troops as trip wires.

    Perhaps I was a little too angry in my last comment. The bottom line is that if you take away a country’s means of defense in return for iron clad promises of mutual defense, you absolutely have to follow up your words with actions when they are threatened an invaded. I am not sure how the Crimean port no longer counted as part of Ukraine. i am not sure how eastern Ukraine is not really Ukraine. I am not sure how use of chemical weapons by Syria did not precipitate a huge NATO response that deposed Assad. I guess I am not sure of what the foreign policy goals of the past 8 years have been. It is not that i have disagreed as much as i must say they did not make sense to me..
