from USA Watchdog:
Last week, I told you the deal reached on the Ukraine crisis would be “extremely temporary.”
That was on Friday, and by Easter Sunday, there was bloodshed and the deal was off. Now, the pro-West Ukrainian officials announced the resumption of its anti-terror program against the pro-Russian militia in Eastern Ukraine. Russia says this is military force on citizens, and it is “criminal.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said if Russians are attacked in Eastern Ukraine, Russia would respond. Russia is also holding war games on the Ukrainian border. Likewise, the U.S. is sending troops to Poland and other Eastern European allies for their own war games. If that hasn’t ratcheted up the tensions enough, now there is talk of more sanctions including going after Vladimir Putin’s $40 billion fortune. Some of that cash is reportedly in Swiss bank accounts. Putin says the West might “cut off your nose to spite your face.” Also, there is the pair of Russian bombers that were spotted flying towards the UK and Belgium. Both the UK and Belgium scrambled fighters and nothing happened, but was that a test or some sort of message being sent by Russia? It all adds up to be one big mess that is growing and not shrinking.
