The situation in Ukraine Infographic via Reuters Blog...

via Reuters Blog (here)...
Renewed fighting in Ukraine has claimed the lives of dozens of civilians and soldiers in the past two weeks alone. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Russian President Vladimir Putinhave both called emergency war councils since Aug. 4, as the ceasefire and diplomacy have further broken down. In its recent reports, the Ukrainian military has used the phrase “most shelling in six months” multiple times, and with increasing frequency.
I keep hearing how this is one of the most peaceful times in human history.  My eyes are telling me otherwise.

This does explain some of the moves by the Pentagon...sending a Marine Corps Special Purpose Armored Task Force (my name for it...fits the current "style") and having the Army's 2nd CAV running circles around Europe....something evil is definitely brewing.  I don't think we'll see intervention in case of a flair up, rather an effort to contain it.
