America 'sends in the paratroopers' (modern day version of sending in the Seventh Calvary) to Poland as the United Kingdom, Denmark and the Netherlands scramble air defense fighters as Russian bombers approach their shores! WAR IN EUROPE is now very close...will this be the time that it begins or will something else happen, once again, to delay it. This war will almost certainly morph into the THIRD WORLD WAR!!!

Report: Kiev pulls back forces after Russia flexes military muscles ~ link ~ Kiev reportedly suspends its "anti-terror operation" in eastern Ukraine after five pro-Russian militants are killed and Russia orders military exercises on the Ukraine border.
The minister said that starting on Thursday, battalions of tactical groups from the armed forces' southern and western military districts would begin exercises in regions of Russia bordering Ukraine.
He added: "Apart from that, the air force will conduct flights to train for manoeuvres along the state borders."
Russia forced to launch military drills near border in response to Ukrainian military op ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ This is getting very serious now! Stirling
Russia has begun extensive military exercises near the Ukrainian border following the escalation of violence in eastern Ukraine.
“The order to use force against civilians has already been given, and if this military machine is not stopped, the amount of casualties will only grow,” Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said during an official meeting in Moscow.
“War games by NATO in Poland and the Baltic states are also not helping the normalization of the situation. We are forced to react to the situation.”

RUSSIAN TROOPS MASS NEAR THE UKRAINE ~ link ~ Very large scale troop movements are always "drills" and "exercises" and "war games" until they suddenly become a real WAR!!! What is happening now is that both NATO and Russia are clearly moving military forces into position for WAR. The real question is will this be sidetracked or will all hell break lose upon the World??? Stirling
In an immediate reaction, Russia's defence minister said troops massed near Ukraine's border were starting new military exercises.
The statements by Mr Putin and defense minister Sergei Shoigu sharpened anxiety over the prospect of a Russian military incursion into Ukraine. Russia's foreign minister warned a day earlier that any attack on Russian citizens or interests in eastern Ukraine would bring a strong response.
