First of US Paratroopers arrive in Poland ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ NATO is readying itself for WAR under the cover of "military exercises", as is Russia!!!

Tension as Russia issues veiled threat to Ukrainian coup junta ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov’s comments bolstered wide concern that the country could use any violence in eastern Ukraine as a pretext for sending in troops.

Independent Scotland could escape United Kingdom austerity ~ link ~ Perhaps the convincing case for Scottish independence is the prospect of Scotland never being ruled by a Tory government ever again.
Years of Westminster-centric policy and pro-business Thatcherite reform have alienated the Scottish electorate from the British political system; an arrangement that seems increasingly in favour of cut-backs, austerity and tax breaks for the richest. While Conservative and New Labour governments might have secured votes in England, most people living in Scotland have no sympathy for career politicians bidding for power in a seemingly corrupt playground for the elite. In 2014, with Tory austerity plans guaranteed regardless of which party wins office, independence seems like a sure bet for the Scottish to withdraw from Cameron's race to the bottom.
