Winds Of War: Is Russia Conducting A Massive Mobilization Of Troops For An Invasion Of Ukraine?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Russian Troops - Public DomainThe drumbeats of war are growing louder.  Fighting in eastern Ukraine between separatists and pro-government forces has risen to an intensity not seen in well over a year, and the Russians claim that they recently foiled a “Ukrainian plot” to conduct terror attacks in Crimea.  As tensions in the region have increased, the Russians have used the cover of “military drills” to move massive amounts of troops and military equipment up to the border with Ukraine.  This is something that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago, but things have intensified since then, and a huge military exercise is planned for September.  Needless to say, the Ukrainians are quite alarmed by this, and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is warning that a full scale mobilization of the Ukrainian military may be needed.  If something is going to happen, it is likely to happen soon.  As you will see below, once we get into October it will become much less likely that we would see a Russian invasion of Ukraine.

We aren’t hearing much about this conflict in the U.S. media, but over in Europe this is a very big deal.  Just consider the following excerpt from an article in the Independent entitled “Russia is teetering on the brink of ‘all out war’ with Ukraine“…

Ukraine is holding a major military parade in Kiev today to mark its 25th anniversary as an independent state. But, at a time that should otherwise be a moment of national celebration, a serious crisis with Moscow is flaring up. So serious, in fact, that on Tuesday the Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande were forced to hold a three-way phone call to try to de-escalate the situation.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has even warned that there is growing risk of a “full scale Russian invasion along all fronts,” ratcheting up what is already the bloodiest European conflict since the wars over the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s.

And the truth is that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has some very good reasons to be concerned.  As the Washington Post has pointed out, the Russians have used military exercises as an excuse to stage forces for military action in the past…

As violence in the east heats up, Ukrainian officials have suggested that Russia may use the upcoming military drills, called Kavkaz (Caucasus) 2016, as cover for military action against Ukraine. The drills are the first to integrate the Crimean Peninsula, which was annexed by Russia in 2014, into the country’s military planning, and thousands of Russian troops will be brought in for air, land and sea exercises.

Ukrainian government analysts have recalled that exercises served as staging grounds for troop incursions in 2014, as did Russian military exercises held shortly before the Georgian war of 2008. Ukraine’s ambassador to the United Nations suggested that Russia may have “bad intentions,” while the West has also said it would like observers to be present.

If there is going to be a Russian invasion of Ukraine in September, Kavkaz 2016 will likely be used as cover for invasion preparations.  It is a yearly exercise, but in 2016 it looks like it will be much bigger than ever before, and some analysts have pointed out that the Russians have not conducted a mobilization on this scale since the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968.  Here is more on Kavkaz 2016 from the Daily Signal

In September, Russia has plans for a large-scale strategic military exercise called Kavkaz-2016. The exercise, which is an annual event, will include units deployed near the borders of Ukraine, Georgia, and Azerbaijan—including two Russian military districts in the Southern and Northern Caucasus, the Russian Black Sea Fleet (headquartered in occupied Crimea), and the Caspian Flotilla.

It is not immediately clear the exact size of this year’s exercise, but last year it comprised 95,000 troops, 7,000 vehicles, and 150 aircraft, according to a report by IHS Markit, a U.K.-based intelligence and analysis firm.

If the Russians are going to do something, they need to do it soon, because the weather turns very bad during the month of October.  Here is one how one analyst assessed the situation

“But will there be a war – we’ll see, no much time for guessing left… In this situation, the main thing for Russia is to achieve strategic and tactical surprise. And if she does not start now – then it will be too late. One would need to turn off full-scale operations in October because of the rains and the next draft to Russian army (it would mean the demobilization of current wave of conscripts and training the new ones – UT).”

A Russian invasion of Ukraine would mean that Russian relations with the U.S. and with Europe would immediately plunge to Cold War levels.  Of course some would argue that we are already there.  In any event, a Russian invasion would force the U.S. and NATO to make some very uncomfortable decisions.

Would the U.S. and NATO just stand by and do nothing while Ukraine is overrun by the Russians?

Maybe.

But if the U.S. and NATO responded with military force, that would risk a full scale nuclear confrontation with Russia.

Right now, a war with Russia is about the last thing that most Americans are thinking about, but the truth is that we are not that far away from such a scenario.

Over in Russia, the mindset is totally different.  The following is from a Newsweek article entitled “In Europe and Russia, There’s Talk of War“…

Recently, I grabbed a taxi in Moscow. When the driver asked me where I was from, I told him the United States. “I went there once,” he said, “to Chicago. I really liked it.”

“But tell me something,” he added. “When are we going to war?”

The question, put so starkly, so honestly, shocked me. “Well, I hope never,” I replied. “No one wants war.”

At the office, I ask a Russian employee about the mood in his working class Moscow neighborhood. The old people are buying salt, matches and gretchka [buckwheat], he tells me—the time-worn refuge for Russians stocking up on essentials in case of war.

In the past two months, I’ve traveled to the Baltic region, to Georgia, and to Russia. Talk of war is everywhere.

Most Americans don’t realize that Russians already view the United States more negatively than they did even during the height of the Cold War.  On Russian television they openly talk about the inevitability of a war between the United States and Russia, and the Russian military has feverishly been preparing for such a future conflict.

If we can get to October, we can probably breathe a bit of a sigh of relief because the Russians are not likely to conduct an invasion once the weather turns bad.

But for now there are very good reasons to be concerned, and we shall see what happens over the coming weeks…

    More scaremongering…Russia won’t invade Ukraine- too much financial costs and a great possibility of North Korea style total isolation and sanctions for Russia. I’m more concerned what Turkey is doing now in Syria.

    • CASTIEL

      Russia already have sanctions from the UE and USA. Also Ukraine made some failed sabotage missions in Crimea and keep bombing the region of Dumbass….and long range missiles are being installed in Poland and Ukraine…..If they keep pushing Russia too far guess what will happen? They already invaded a part of Ukraine…. if they attack its just to have full controll of Luhansk and Donetsk region…..but that could cause a global war..because it would be a direct attack from Russia…….Financial costs??????where do you think the pro Russians gets the money and weapons from?

      • MaxRockatansky33

    While the USA is busy destabilising the region, of course Russia will respond. It’s been reported in the UK papers (and BBC) that the US has CIA and special military forces in the Ukraine and Chechnya, providing military assistance. Plus, you have warships sailing into the Black Sea and right up to the Russian territorial waters in the north. Time for the Chinese and Russians to do the same and sail up to Boston, New York and LA. Freedom of navigation! The UK has complained about Russian bombers coming near UK air space, but they conveniently ignore the fact that they regularly do that to Russia. But if Russia puts missiles in Cuba there is an international outrage. Hypocrits! The US complains about the South Chian Sea. Well, they are just using the same rhetoric that the US has used and the same justifications.

      Abram agreed to what Sarai said. 3 So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife. 4 He slept with Hagar, and she conceived.

      When she knew she was pregnant, she began to despise her mistress. 5 Then Sarai said to Abram, “You are responsible for the wrong I am suffering. I put my slave in your arms, and now that she knows she is pregnant, she despises me. May the Lord judge between you and me.”

      6 “Your slave is in your hands,” Abram said. “Do with her whatever you think best.” Then Sarai mistreated Hagar; so she fled from her.

      7 The angel of the Lord found Hagar near a spring in the desert; it was the spring that is beside the road to Shur. 8 And he said, “Hagar, slave of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?”

      “I’m running away from my mistress Sarai,” she answered.

      9 Then the angel of the Lord told her, “Go back to your mistress and submit to her.” 10 The angel added, “I will increase your descendants so much that they will be too numerous to count.”

      18 So Abram went to live near the great trees of Mamre at Hebron, where he pitched his tents. There he built an altar to the Lord.14 At the time when Amraphel was king of Shinar,[a] Arioch king of Ellasar, Kedorlaomer king of Elam and Tidal king of Goyim, 2 these kings went to war against Bera king of Sodom, Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, Shemeber king of Zeboyim, and the king of Bela (that is, Zoar). 3 All these latter kings joined forces in the Valley of Siddim (that is, the Dead Sea Valley). 4 For twelve years they had been subject to Kedorlaomer, but in the thirteenth year they rebelled.

      5 In the fourteenth year, Kedorlaomer and the kings allied with him went out and defeated the Rephaites in Ashteroth Karnaim, the Zuzites in Ham, the Emites in Shaveh Kiriathaim 6 and the Horites in the hill country of Seir, as far as El Paran near the desert. 7 Then they turned back and went to En Mishpat (that is, Kadesh), and they conquered the whole territory of the Amalekites, as well as the Amorites who were living in Hazezon Tamar.

            22 At that time Abimelek and Phicol the commander of his forces said to Abraham, “God is with you in everything you do. 23 Now swear to me here before God that you will not deal falsely with me or my children or my descendants. Show to me and the country where you now reside as a foreigner the same kindness I have shown to you.”

            24 Abraham said, “I swear it.”

            25 Then Abraham complained to Abimelek about a well of water that Abimelek’s servants had seized. 26 But Abimelek said, “I don’t know who has done this. You did not tell me, and I heard about it only today.”

            27 So Abraham brought sheep and cattle and gave them to Abimelek, and the two men made a treaty. 28 Abraham set apart seven ewe lambs from the flock, 29 and Abimelek asked Abraham, “What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs you have set apart by themselves?”

            30 He replied, “Accept these seven lambs from my hand as a witness that I dug this well.”

            31 So that place was called Beersheba,[d] because the two men swore an oath there.

    • Richard O. Mann

      Yes. But the Russians first had to retreat from the French and the Germans while waiting for the weather to come around. I don’t see Russia retreating in this case. I hope it does not happen, but with Putin feeling his oats, you just never know. And Obama will have to play a round of golf when it happens, so you know what we will do.

        The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. 2 “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.”

        “No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.”

        3 But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. 4 Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. 5 They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”

      the Russians know how to control the weather, when’s the last time you saw a rainy day when they have their May day parade?

    • mister_roboto

      Well, mounting an offensive operation when the weather is making the ground terribly muddy is very detrimental to mechanized units and heavy artillery. Of course Russia would fight in such conditions if it felt it had to, but they would be much better off initiating the operation before the weather turns so that they could more quickly and effectively entrench themselves, assuming their aim is to occupy the ethnically Russian eastern half of Ukraine.

  • K

    Castiel is correct. Throughout history, winter has been a friend to Russia. And just like the U.S. , Russia can put in stop loss orders, to keep experienced troops from leaving. This so called expert, is no such thing.

      17 When the sun had set and darkness had fallen, a smoking firepot with a blazing torch appeared and passed between the pieces. 18 On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi[e] of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates— 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.”
      16 Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; 2 so she said to Abram, “The Lord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.”

          13 So Abram went up from Egypt to the Negev, with his wife and everything he had, and Lot went with him. 2 Abram had become very wealthy in livestock and in silver and gold.

          3 From the Negev he went from place to place until he came to Bethel, to the place between Bethel and Ai where his tent had been earlier 4 and where he had first built an altar. There Abram called on the name of the Lord.

        14 When Abram came to Egypt, the Egyptians saw that Sarai was a very beautiful woman. 15 And when Pharaoh’s officials saw her, they praised her to Pharaoh, and she was taken into his palace. 16 He treated Abram well for her sake, and Abram acquired sheep and cattle, male and female donkeys, male and female servants, and camels.

        17 But the Lord inflicted serious diseases on Pharaoh and his household because of Abram’s wife Sarai. 18 So Pharaoh summoned Abram. “What have you done to me?” he said. “Why didn’t you tell me she was your wife? 19 Why did you say, ‘She is my sister,’ so that I took her to be my wife?

            13 Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’ 14 Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”

            15 Sarah was afraid, so she lied and said, “I did not laugh.”

            But he said, “Yes, you did laugh.”

        10 Lot looked around and saw that the whole plain of the Jordan toward Zoar was well watered, like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt. (This was before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.) 11 So Lot chose for himself the whole plain of the Jordan and set out toward the east. The two men parted company: 12 Abram lived in the land of Canaan, while Lot lived among the cities of the plain and pitched his tents near Sodom. 13 Now the people of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the Lord.

        14 The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, “Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west. 15 All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring[a] forever. 16 I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust, then your offspring could be counted. 17 Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you.”

            12 The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, 13 because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.”

            14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry[a] his daughters. He said, “Hurry and get out of this place, because the Lord is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.

            15 With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished.”

            16 When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the Lord was merciful to them.

            16 To Sarah he said, “I am giving your brother a thousand shekels[a] of silver. This is to cover the offense against you before all who are with you; you are completely vindicated.”

            17 Then Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelek, his wife and his female slaves so they could have children again, 18 for the Lord had kept all the women in Abimelek’s household from conceiving because of Abraham’s wife Sarah.

Will you really sweep it away and not spare[e] the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? 25 Far be it from you to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike.

        5 Now Lot, who was moving about with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents. 6 But the land could not support them while they stayed together, for their possessions were so great that they were not able to stay together. 7 And quarreling arose between Abram’s herders and Lot’s. The Canaanites and Perizzites were also living in the land at that time.

        8 So Abram said to Lot, “Let’s not have any quarreling between you and me, or between your herders and mine, for we are close relatives. 9 Is not the whole land before you? Let’s part company. If you go to the left, I’ll go to the right; if you go to the right, I’ll go to the left.”

        16 When the men got up to leave, they looked down toward Sodom, and Abraham walked along with them to see them on their way. 17 Then the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? 18 Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him.[c] 19 For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just, so that the Lord will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.”

        20 Then the Lord said, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous 21 that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know.”

    If there is war, I’ll say this. I know Australian who would actively sabotage and destroy US interests here. Most people don’t give a damn about the US, but there are enough who absolutely detest anything American and would support any enemy of the US (even Christians, who would side with Muslims) There are some I know, who remember the CIA trying to destabilise the Australian Whitlam government. There was the Khemlani affair where the government got financing from a questionable Iranian and it was the CIA drumming up “outrage”. Of course, the US didn’t like the democratically elected government of Iran and had that overthrown, and wants democracy in Iraq, but doesn’t like the peoples choice there either so the war continues. Assad is a Russian ally so they must be eliminated. So if Turkey turns its back on NATO and the US, I suppose that will mean regime change instigated in Turkey too! Perhaps Russian should destabilise the US and instigate regime change!

        15 After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision:

        “Do not be afraid, Abram.

        I am your shield,[a]

        your very great reward.[b]”

        2 But Abram said, “Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit[c] my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?” 3 And Abram said, “You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir.”

        4 Then the word of the Lord came to him: “This man will not be your heir, but a son who is your own flesh and blood will be your heir.” 5 He took him outside and said, “Look up at the sky and count the stars—if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring[d] be.”

        6 Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.

        7 He also said to him, “I am the Lord, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to take possession of it.”

        8 But Abram said, “Sovereign Lord, how can I know that I will gain possession of it?”

        17 After Abram returned from defeating Kedorlaomer and the kings allied with him, the king of Sodom came out to meet him in the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s Valley).

        18 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, 19 and he blessed Abram, saying,

        “Blessed be Abram by God Most High,

        Creator of heaven and earth.

        20 And praise be to God Most High,

        who delivered your enemies into your hand.”

        Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything.

        21 The king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the people and keep the goods for yourself.”

        22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “With raised hand I have sworn an oath to the Lord, God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth, 23 that I will accept nothing belonging to you, not even a thread or the strap of a sandal, so that you will never be able to say, ‘I made Abram rich.’ 24 I will accept nothing but what my men have eaten and the share that belongs to the men who went with me—to Aner, Eshkol and Mamre. Let them have their share.”

      8 Then the king of Sodom, the king of Gomorrah, the king of Admah, the king of Zeboyim and the king of Bela (that is, Zoar) marched out and drew up their battle lines in the Valley of Siddim 9 against Kedorlaomer king of Elam, Tidal king of Goyim, Amraphel king of Shinar and Arioch king of Ellasar—four kings against five. 10 Now the Valley of Siddim was full of tar pits, and when the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, some of the men fell into them and the rest fled to the hills. 11 The four kings seized all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah and all their food; then they went away. 12 They also carried off Abram’s nephew Lot and his possessions, since he was living in Sodom.

      13 A man who had escaped came and reported this to Abram the Hebrew. Now Abram was living near the great trees of Mamre the Amorite, a brother[b] of Eshkol and Aner, all of whom were allied with Abram. 14 When Abram heard that his relative had been taken captive, he called out the 318 trained men born in his household and went in pursuit as far as Dan. 15 During the night Abram divided his men to attack them and he routed them, pursuing them as far as Hobah, north of Damascus. 16 He recovered all the goods and brought back his relative Lot and his possessions, together with the women and the other people.

          6 Abram traveled through the land as far as the site of the great tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. 7 The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring[c] I will give this land.” So he built an altar there to the Lord, who had appeared to him.

          8 From there he went on toward the hills east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. There he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord.

          9 Then Abram set out and continued toward the Negev.

          and I will bless you;

          4 So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran. 5 He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there.

And Haran became the father of Lot. 28 While his father Terah was still alive, Haran died in Ur of the Chaldeans, in the land of his birth. 29 Abram and Nahor both married. The name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife was Milkah; she was the daughter of Haran, the father of both Milkah and Iskah. 30 Now Sarai was childless because she was not able to conceive.

        31 Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, the wife of his son Abram, and together they set out from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan. But when they came to Harran, they settled there.

            3 But God came to Abimelek in a dream one night and said to him, “You are as good as dead because of the woman you have taken; she is a married woman.”

            4 Now Abimelek had not gone near her, so he said, “Lord, will you destroy an innocent nation? 5 Did he not say to me, ‘She is my sister,’ and didn’t she also say, ‘He is my brother’? I have done this with a clear conscience and clean hands.

          Actually the Vatican some years back had their ancient Hebrew Bible translated as it was a history book and not a spiritual one. There were no mention of Satan, the devil, the concept of hell, snakes nor serpents. Every where you see the word “GOD” or “GODS” as in many the correct translation should be “Those that came from above”. Beings came to earth and changed the DNA of a very primitive man to what is modern day man. It took 232 versions of man to what we are today. They educated man and eventually mated with man and in the Books of Enoch these offspring are named the Nephilim and these are the people who have very long lifespans in the Bible. The Being who was responsible for educating man was named Lucifer, “Giver of Light and Knowledge”. When a second group arrived they were horrified at the DNA changes, education and the mating. They attempted to wipe out of of mankind with a world wide flood which exists in all cultures today. A war broke out between the two groups and the first group are incorrectly called “The Fallen Angels”. Mankind today is the offspring of those who survived the flood. The Nephilim are those ancient Greek, Roman and Nordic gods like Zeus, Hercules, Thor, Apollo etc. They were simply much more intelligent than man, were a lot stronger and faster and quicker. As the Nephilim offspring mated each successive generation did not live as long as there parents.
          As they say, the rest is history!

        Given the dynamics, if Russia was compelled to militarily move, it is in Russian and their allies interests to move simultaneously. The reason is alarmingly simple; the US advantage rests in short and confined engagements right now that means Russia and its allies move to expand it such as Tantrus, Syria is also vital to Russian interests if Russia believes war with the US a foregone conclusion expect Syria, Iran, Pakistan, and North Korea to be involved on top of then some.

    One major thing to note: I am disgusted at how every liberal media and every brain-dead liberal always cries when a single so-called Palestinian is killed (read up on history that there is no such thing as “Palestinian”) or Israel builds settlements on “their land”, while NO ONE makes even one cry or protest when Russia annexed (and still holding) the Crimea (an area of 27,00- sq km), which is larger than all of Israel (20,770 sq km)!

    Further now Russia wants to take over a whole country, which is larger than EVERY European (West and East) country except France. WHERE IS THE PROTEST IN THE STREETS OF NYC, LONDON, PARIS, BERLIN, ETC.? Because every liberal media and every brain-dead liberal is an anti-Semite and hates Israel just because!

    When Russia annexes the whole Ukraine, I bet a million bucks no one will protest either! Russia is stealing the land of a real people, with a history, culture, whereas Israel liberates stolen land by a non-people.

      10 Abram brought all these to him, cut them in two and arranged the halves opposite each other; the birds, however, he did not cut in half. 11 Then birds of prey came down on the carcasses, but Abram drove them away.

      12 As the sun was setting, Abram fell into a deep sleep, and a thick and dreadful darkness came over him. 13 Then the Lord said to him, “Know for certain that for four hundred years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own and that they will be enslaved and mistreated there. 14 But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions. 15 You, however, will go to your ancestors in peace and be buried at a good old age. 16 In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.”
      17 When the sun had set and darkness had fallen, a smoking firepot with a blazing torch appeared and passed between the pieces. 18 On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi[e] of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates— 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.”

        Party nomination for president of the United States in 2016,
        including Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Rick Santorum, who “have
        questioned or

        denied the established science of human-caused
        climate change, and have harshly criticized policies designed to tax or
        regulate the burning of fossil fuels.” [Wiki]

    There is a man who posts news from Ukraine going by the Israeli News Network from the Czech Republic. His name is Stephan Ben-Hur and his wife is Russian and his father-in-law is from Ukraine and said that most of the Ukrainian people are completely fed up with the government and what the US has done to their country. It has been economically destroyed and their living standards are below third world status. Last month he posted clips sent to him by people in Ukraine showing long line of tanks moving toward Donbass as the military is prepping for war. He also said after the Ukrainian intelligence attacked people in Crimea that all talks are now off with the Russians. He said the people of Ukraine want all US people to leave and most just want the Russians to invade and drive the westerns out and restore order and their standard of living. Also all Europeans have had enough of the government in Kiev and are washing their hands of the whole mess. The Ukrainian people realize they all have been abandoned by the west and their only hope is with Russia. The west realizes it is only a matter of time before the Ukrainians rise up and topple the Kiev regime as desperation and despair has set in. Poroshenko should be scared as is. If he doesn’t attack he will be shot by the right wing nazis and if he does attack he knows the Ukrainian army will be totally destroyed as last time and that was when the Ukrainian army had help by the western mercenaries who were no match for the Russian backed separatist. The separatist and Russia are in no mood for any farther nonsense and this raises the risk of the separatist just keep moving right on to Kiev if attacked. It also raises the risk of a full scale Russia invasion and the west has told the Kiev government there will no help this time and nobody is going to say a thing if that happens because the trouble the Kiev government has caused in the past. With the northern gas pipeline from Russia to Germany under way and the Turkstream back in play, Ukraine is getting ready to lose billions in gas transit fees and the country will be doomed further economically. It is no wonder at all that the Ukrainian people just hope for an overthrow of the government. Most people in Ukraine have a family member or knows somebody who has left and living now in Crimea or Russia and realize all these people have a much higher standards of living now than they do! The only people left in the country are those unable to leave and of course the corrupt government officials and the Nazis. Even the neocons like Kissinger and Brzezinski are now admitting that Obama’s foreign policies are a complete disaster and both are calling for a realignment with both Russia and China. If you just look at Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Iraq and Afghanistan are have been total failures and both men for the first time fear that a nuclear confrontation with both Russia and China would end up being a total disaster for the US especially Russia as they have technology far superior than the US and have been demonstrating it in Syria and in the Black Sea.

      The US did not create this foreign policy. The CFR created this situation with their European collaborators.

  • benignbrodwicz

    Michael, why don’t you mention the NATO forces on Russia’s border, performing their own massive drills? Are you a neo-con patsy like most evangelicals? It would appear so. You want war, apparently, publishing things like this. Chill out, brother.

    Watch for a false flag event *in the Ukraine* that will “justify” NATO “retaliating” against Russia.

    cheers,

      When the American general pinned a medal on the Ukrainian rebel fighter in the hospital as if Ukraine were a member of NATO I thought all hell would break out.

  • jakartaman

    If I was a betting man – I would think Putin wants to do in now while twinkle toes Barack is in office

    • df NJ

      The CFR runs the US military. Not twinkle toes.

  • Rhino Horns

    Michael… aren’t you aware that this whole crisis in the Ukraine was started by the CIA (with the involvement of Soros) overthrowing the government of Viktor Yanukovych and installing Poreshenko in 2014? It is America trying to start a war with Russia because they know this whole financial system is doomed, and they want to blame it on anyone but themselves . I’m surprised that you aren’t aware of this situation. Biblical prophecy is getting ready to be fulfilled.

    • df NJ

      Please stop praying for biblical prophecy to be fulfilled. It’s such a hateful evil thing to pray for.

      • Orac4Prez

        The Lords prayers says to “pray for His will to be done on Earth as it is in Heaven” However, my concern is not that His will be done. It is that every group claims “special” knowledge and tries to twist scripture verses to fit their particular ideological view of the world and paint “the others” as Godless and deserving of judgement. Before long anyone who disagrees suddenly becomes as heathen moron and a subject of mindless violence. Obama’s utterances post election prove he doesn’t believe in God.

  • riftcliff

    Excuse me but do you know what are you writing about? First time you sounds just like propaganda. Continue good job on economics, geopolitics is a “little” more complex than just asserting debatable suppositions and facts. Relax, they need not a new war, they are busy fighting Daesh effectively while other ones are threatening multiple supposed enemies here, there and… everywhere ♫

  • tsf

    “IS Russia Conducting A Massive Mobilization?..?

    That depends on what the meaning of “is” is.

    • LIZ THE SHIZ

      give tsf a cigar but hold off on the blue dress

  • goldminer

    Russia is not exactly ready to go to war yet. The build up is simply annual training for the real thing. In response to NATO’s build up of troops on the Russia borders. No big deal yet. They will invade after they and China destroy the dollar and our economy. Then we cant afford to go to war. As if we could win a war against Russia and China anyhow with the pathetic shape our military is in, Thanks to the big Zero and the brainless old bat.

  • Todd Perry

    Nope they are there to [protect there borders from US and NATO attack into their country from the Ukraine while the US and NATO move NUCLEAR WEAPONS on the Russian border.

  • Michael Dubin

    Michael, how much longer are you going to keep this up? The US monitors the Russia/Ukraine border 24/7, so there should be tons of evidence of this alleged Russian troop buildup on the Ukraine border. Yet nobody can provide any. You’ve been pushing this “Russia invades Ukraine” nonsense for the last 2 years. Give it a rest.

  • silly

    They don’t care about the weather. Russians are tough. Wimpy USA Americans care about the weather.

  • coreyb

    Why would Russia want to invade Ukraine? Russia not satisfied taking Crimea? What does Russia want? There is no civil war in Ukraine, only Russia’s meddling.

    • GV

      BS, the U.S. getting involved in Ukraine is like Russia getting involved in Mexico

  • mister_roboto

    Well, if Putin thinks he can win a nuclear war, General Nuclear Winter will likely have a little surprise for him.

  • Preacher62

    The fear of man brings a snare, a perplexing snare, that disturbs our peace; an entangling snare, by which we are drawn into sin; and, therefore, it must be striven and prayed against. Tribulation, distress, and persecution cannot take away God’s love to them that are his, or theirs to him. Fear only God, who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

  • max gon

    Michael, is very sad that the pentagon order you to write this nonsense article. You are parroting the same BS the neo-cons are parroting about Russia. Russia is in no need to invade any country right now, specially Ukraine that is falling apart after the USA put in power the present nazi regime. So, Michael, are you on the neo-cons side now?

  • Lazarovic

    We need two armored divisions in Poland, at least, and station the F-22s there, because they’ll shoot down the whole Russian Air Force in a day. That’s what we need. Let Vladimir try to check that.

    • GV

      the U.S. hasn’t won a war since WWII

  • Infidel51

    A war with Russia would be an excellent excuse to declare a national emergency and spare hildabeast the humiliation of a debate with Trump. It may even be a good excuse to cancel elections all together. Whatever happens if we do go to war with Russia you can bet that the criminal class has already planned to exploit the crisis for their own benefit.

  • LAURA KEY

    God bless Vladimir Putin and his beautiful Russia!! He loves his country and traditional values — and his goal is to protect it and its people from decadent outside influences and terrorists. Wouldn’t it be nice if the USA had such a president who loved America THAT MUCH???

  • thegeorgespyman

    God reveals a fascinating and detailed prophecy about a future war campaign against Israel in the book of Ezekiel. This war is known as the “Gog and Magog War” because the people of Magog and their leader Gog will lead the attack against Israel. Scripture clearly teaches that this particular war will be a turning point for Israel, with regard to their relationship with God. The sobering, yet exciting aspect of this study is that for the first time since Ezekiel penned these prophecies, the countries that will gather against Israel have built an alliance in recent years. The prophetic puzzle pieces are now in place. It is just a matter of time, that is, God’s timing before these prophecies find fulfillment.

    Worth looking at map. All the biblical countries referenced seem to be in conflict or on the verge of entering conflict.

  • trig500

    Why shouldn’t Putin mobilize troops near Ukraine?
    After all, the US spent 5 billion overthrowing Ukraine’s democratically elected government.
    Putin is the peace maker, the US is the global menace.
    One wouldn’t see this is we’re were stuck getting our news from “the electric Jew” (TV)

  • Stephan Larose

    Well, break promises not to expand NATO to Russia’s borders, create an existential threat to the country, conduct a regime change operation that puts Western crony oligarchs and Neo-Nazis in power in Ukraine and that’s what you get. We are manifestly threatening Russia’s security and economic interests, we shouldn’t be surprised if they react.
