While Russia has been massively piling up troops next to Ukraine's eastern border, one thing that was missing to allow the crossing of the border was a provocation, aka the proverbial spark to give Moscow the green light to "defend" Russian citizens in the East. It may have just gotten that last night, when as previously reported, clashes in the eastern city of Donetsk between pro-Ukraine and pro-Russian civilians turned lethal, killing at least one person and dozens injured. A clip of the clashes can be seen below:
"We don't see any point in sanctions," Shi said. "Sanctions could lead to retaliatory action, and that would trigger a spiral with unforeseeable consequences. We don't want this."

US Senator Inhofe: Putting F-22s and Aegis ships near Ukraine 'would not escalate conflict' ~ link ~ Well, well...this is either an example of strategic thinking at the grade school level or of a demonic bastard who wants to get the world destroyed in WWIII.

A senior Republican senator says his call to surround Vladimir Putin’s Ukraine-occupying forces with America’s most-advanced weapons would not amount to an escalation that could trigger a major conflict.
Western presidents and chancellors, as well as senior secretaries and ministers, are focused on using economic and diplomatic maneuvers to force the Russian president to remove his forces from Ukraine’s Crimea region. No Western leader is talking about using military force to push Putin’s forces from the region.
Ukrainian colonel threatens to fire on Russian forces in the Crimea ~ link ~ A Ukrainian army colonel whose troops have been challenged by Russian marines for control of a Crimean air base threatened Thursday to open fire unless given new and formal instructions to hold off by his nation’s defense ministry, the UNIAN news agency reported.
“Being under constant pressure from Russian Federation army servicemen and local militia … we are acting on oral orders to hold on, not to give in to provocations and not to open fire,” Col. Yuly Mamchur said in a statement quoted by UNIAN news agency. “In case you don't provide corresponding decisions, we will be forced to act in accordance with Ukraine army statute, including opening fire.

The coming world war is totally unnecessary. It will be fought with weapons and technology that is outdated by over a hundred years. The United States government has the ability to negate ANY Russian or Chinese weapon.
These two events and many world events are part of a grand theater which is being played out in order to create maximum chaos from which the New World Order will be rolled out. And this is all preventable because we have unimaginable technologies which could solve the problems that wars cannot.
How do I know what technologies are available to our government? I don’t, but my father did and this is a brief revelation of his work and why it matters to all of us.
One senior administration official said the data showing the plane engines running hours after contact was lost came from the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System, or ACARS, a way that planes maintain contact with ground stations through radio or satellite signals.
Al-Aqse Mosque (Temple Mount) vs. Israel ~ link ~ This is the most dangerous small piece of real estate on the entire Earth!!! Event there are directly tied into the End Days and Armageddon!!! Stirling
In a statement released on March 7, the Palestinian Ministry of Awqaf and Religious Affairs said Israeli forces carried out 30 attacks against Al-Aqsa Mosque and other holy sites during the month of February alone. Most of the attacks targeted Al-Aqsa itself. While the recurring violations at Al-Aqsa were led by Jewish settlers, according to the statement, they have done so under the watchful eye, protection and support of the Israeli police and army.
Most alarming about these attacks is their political context, which indicates that a great degree of coordination is underway between politicians, security forces and Jewish settlers.
Anger as Cameron tries to superglue UK to Israel ~ link ~
According to the Jewish Chronicle http://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/113527/cameron-reassures-british-jews-over-iran-nuclear-deal , Cameron recently told Jewish leaders: “I am with you and with the Israeli people, genuinely. As far as I’m concerned, an enemy of Israel is an enemy of mine. A threat to Israel is a threat to us all…. I can promise you this: Britain will stand with Israel, Britain will support Israel, Britain will keep the pressure up on Iran. We do not want you to have a nuclear-armed near-neighbour, a nuclear threat facing your country… We share that feeling and show you our solidarity.”
What stupidity. Israel is hostile towards Syria and anyone else who resists Zionist ambitions to dominate the Middle East. Those countries are not Britain’s enemies by any stretch of a sane imagination, but they are Cameron’s enemies apparently and he’d like to take us to war against them for the benefit of his Zio-pals. He recently wanted clearance to bomb Syria but mercifully was stopped by Parliament. He and Hague nevertheless inflicted vicious sanctions on the Iranians, intending to impoverish them and ruin their economy, for no particular reason except Israel and America wanted it. Where is Cameron’s mandate for such objectionable policies? Did he consult the British people before making his pledge of servitude to the criminals in Tel Aviv?
Russian strategic bombers carry out patrols over Arctic ~ link ~ “Aside from airborne troops’ drills we also organised a patrol mission over the Arctic Ocean by Russia’s strategic bombers Tu-95MS. Four planes have been flying over the northern districts for 12 hours. After refuelling in the air they will continue their patrol for another 12-14 hours,” he said.

Fire Sale of US Treasuries is a serious warning of acute stress across the world ~ link ~ This is a really bad financial sign!!! Stirling
Somebody is a selling a fistful of US Treasuries. It could be Russia, or China, Turkey, South Africa, or Indonesia, or all frantically selling bonds at the same time for different reasons.
We don’t yet know. All we know is that the US Federal Reserve’s custody holdings on behalf of foreign central banks plunged by $106bn in the week ending March 12, the biggest one-week drop on record.
