The US-backed coup in Ukraine has triggered the most dangerous international crisis since the Cuban missile crisis of October 1962. American and European officials are denouncing Russia for sending troops into Crimea in response to the installation of an anti-Russian regime in Ukraine that has seized power through a coup d’état staged by fascist militia.
To this point, the Chinese government has engaged in a diplomatic balancing act, refusing to condemn either the pro-Western coup or Russia’s response. At a press conference in Beijing on Sunday, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Qin Gang stressed “China’s long-standing position not to interfere in others’ internal affairs” and voiced support for Ukraine’s “independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity”—without indicating who China believed had violated it. At a press conference the next day, Gang refused to voice support for Russia’s actions, but equally refused to state whether China recognised the legitimacy of the coup-installed government in Kiev or to condemn the Russian incursion into Crimea.
Putin targets America's Achilles Heel: 'He's going to destroy the stock markets' ~ link ~ In 2012 an elite insider claimed that on or around March 4, 2014 the doomsday clock would ring, the effect of which would be a complete collapse of the U.S. economy. How former Vice Presidential adviser Grady Means came to this conclusion with a specific target date may forever remain clouded in secrecy. But given the state of current affairs around the world today, one can’t help but consider that maybe Grady Means was on to something. With the fight over political and resource control in the Ukraine heating up, is it possible the Means was referring to this very set of circumstances?
We know the U.S. economy is literally on the brink of a collapse. All we need now is a triggering mechanism. Contrarian investor and commentator Greg Mannarino thinks it could be happening right now, and he explains his highly viable theory in the broadcast below. In essence, Mannarino warns that Russia’s Vladimir Putin may be using the current geo-political climate to position his pieces on the grand chessboard with the end game being a total wipe out of domestic equity markets and the U.S. dollar itself.
Ratcheting up the New Cold War: US sends more F-15s to Poland ~ link ~ Picking a major fight with a nation that has a full-blown MAD (mutually assured destruction) with you is beyond crazy...it is demonically driven crazy!!! Stirling
Following the dust up in Ukraine the United States has announced it will send warplanes to Poland and expand NATO’s air patrols over Baltic countries.
“This morning the Defense Department is pursuing measures to support our allies,” Pentagon boss Chuck Hagel told the Senate Armed Services Committee. He said it is “time for all of us to stand with Ukrainian people in support of their territorial integrity.”

During the call Paet apparently claims a doctor told him both protesters and police were shot by the same snipers during clashes between the two groups that escalated violently on February 20.
'There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovych, but it was somebody from the new coalition,' Urmas Paet appears to say during the conversation.
So why do we still have troops in Afghanistan? Why are we still paying Al Qaeda to kill unarmed Christians and Muslims in Syria? And why do we have a fleet in the Persian Gulf threatening Iran? And why do we allow the Bankers and Israel to threaten Russia with World War III over Syria, Iran and the Ukraine?
Is Japan's Abe taking his Cues from Cheney's Washington friends? ~ link ~ Wherever they are coming from, he seems intent on creating a Japan/China/Korea War Theater for WWIII...and that will get most of the Japanese people killed!!! Stirling
Arab states "unprecedentedly" withdraw ambassadors from Qatar after "stormy" meeting ~ link ~ The UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain said on Wednesday they were withdrawing their ambassadors from Qatar after it had not implemented an agreement among Gulf Arab countries not to interfere in each others' internal affairs. The move, unprecedented in the 30-year history of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), follows the Bahrain state minister for information Samira Rajab saying she has evidence of Qatari media provocation against her country. As Gulf News reports, Qatar has been a maverick in the region, backing Islamist groups in Egypt, Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East that are viewed with suspicion or outright hostility by some fellow GCC members. Not a good sign for the oil-generating center of the world.

That someday seems to be here, more and more! Stirling
Catherine says the US federal government has intervened in the markets to favor big corporations so the amazing growth in technical knowledge only benefits corporate insiders. The bankers also cut off credit to small businesses so our scientific advances are only allowed to benefit the largest corporations. It is the aim of Wall Street that you live in a controlled society even if that means our GDP does not grow.
This runs completely counter to all those glowing reports coming out of Washington, which would have us all believe that unemployment is low and things are improving. To the contrary, David John Marotta says the unemployment rate is realistically more than 600 percent higher than what the federal government claims. The economy in terms of MI is also the worst that it's been since the early 1980s when President Reagan took office -- MI reached a peak of 20.76 back in 1980, at the tail end of the Carter administration.
