It is probably too late to stop this war. The war is inevitable because Washington’s doctrine of world hegemony does not permit the existence of other strong countries with independent foreign policies. Unless the House-of-Card US economy collapses, the only way Russia and China can avoid war is to accept Washington’s overlordship.
Estulin said the US and Britain have “repeatedly deployed murderous and terrorist acts” to target independent nations and they are willing to “massively escalate the confrontation with Russia up to the threshold of a thermonuclear war.”
EU Foreign Policy Chief: European Union won't be pushed into a confrontation over the Ukraine ~ link ~
The EU is resisting calls from hotheads to supply arms to Ukraine, saying it won’t be pulled into a confrontation with Russia. Europeans cite the progress in implementing a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine between Kiev and local rebels.
The idea of providing lethal aid to Kiev is popular among many NATO officials and American politicians. US House Speaker John Boehner and a bipartisan group of top lawmakers called on President Barack Obama to deliver the weapons. But Europeans are opposing the move, which would likely escalate tensions with Russia.
“The European Union today is extremely realistic about developments in Russia. But we will never be trapped or forced or pushed or pulled into a confrontative [sic] attitude,” the EU’s Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini told the media on Friday, following an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers in Riga, Latvia.“We still believe that around our continent – not only in but around – cooperation is far better than confrontation. We still argue for that,” she added.

Germany slams NATO commander's comments on the Ukraine as dangerous propaganda ~ link ~
A top NATO European commander’s exaggerated comments on the Ukrainian conflict are ‘dangerous propaganda,’ and put the West at risk of losing credibility, sources in the German Chancellor’s Office told Der Spiegel.
General Philip Breedlove made harsh remarks on the situation in Ukraine on Wednesday, saying that the self-defense forces, with the assistance of Russia, have prepared “over a thousand combat vehicles” and “sophisticated air defense, battalions of artillery” in the south-east of the country. “What is clear is that right now it is not getting better, it is getting worse every day,” NATO's Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) concluded.
The comments came on the same day as the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) stressed that progress in the fulfillment of the Minsk peace deal between Ukrainian government and the militias in Donetsk and Lugansk Regions.
Israeli Arrow Anti-Missile Systems failed in 2014 test ~ link ~ I have long felt that the much hyped and very expensive (to the US citizens) Israeli anti-missile systems are marginal at best. Stirling
Israel has been a world pioneer in developing and deploying missile defense systems, but its programs have suffered two setbacks in recent months. And after months of vague statements, Israel has finally acknowledged that its Arrow-2 antiballistic missile system failed a September 2014 intercept test. The Israeli defense ministry also says a December 2014 test of the Arrow-3 system was aborted due to a malfunction in the target missile.

US war on ISIS a Trojan Horse ~ link ~
In August of 2013, even as the words came out of US President Barack Obama’s mouth regarding an “impending” US military strike against the Syrian state, the impotence of American foreign policy loomed over him and those who wrote his speech for him like an insurmountable wall. So absurd was America’s attempt to once again use the canard of “weapons of mass destruction” to justify yet another military intervention, that many believed America’s proxy war in Syria had finally reached its end.
The counterstroke by Russia included Syria’s immediate and unconditional surrendering of its chemical weapons arsenal and, with that, so evaporated America’s casus belli.

Huntington Ingalls Industries this week received $23 million from the Navy, a small but necessary down payment toward the aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy, projected to cost $11.5 billion once the dust finally settles.
