Is Russia about to push toward Kiev?
« on: March 13, 2014, 01:12:53 AM »
From London's Daily Mail:

Ukraine warned last night that 80,000 Russian troops were massing on its borders and could invade – as world leaders told Vladimir Putin to back off.
A senior security chief in Kiev said Moscow could launch a full-scale  invasion and Russian troops would be in the Ukrainian capital within ‘two or three hours’ of the order to advance.
Photographs of Russian tanks and armoured personnel carriers close to Ukraine’s borders added to tensions.
Last night senior British officials told the Mail they had received reports about Russian troops massing on the border since Tuesday and were concerned by the show of force.

British intelligence is unsure whether the movements are intended to back up the annexation of Crimea, preparation for an invasion or simply defensive.

They'll start pumping up the official cover story before they do, and anything they do will be preceded by their uniformed, but unmarked, proxies in Ukraine, the same ones who took over the local parliament in Crimea and shut down the broadcast stations before the Russians officially went in.
