The U.S. is sending helmets, sleeping bags and generators to support the Ukrainian military -- but stopped short of approving other items the interim government reportedly says it needs to stand up to the might of Moscow, saber-rattling on its doorstep.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Thursday that the U.S. will send the additional non-lethal military aid. The additional aid was announced as fighting between Ukraine's military and pro-Russian factions intensified in the eastern part of the country.

Hagel, speaking at a press conference at the Pentagon with his Polish counterpart, said the approved aid would include medical supplies, helmets, sleeping mats, water purification units, hand-fuel pumps and small power generators.

In other words, the US is now providing non-lethal aid to the russians, because they'll confiscate all of this stuff as they overrun ukraine military units and bases.

Throw in a few cases of Obama's autobiographies, just to keep 'em occupied.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

Oh, they're gonna be occupied. And not by Il Douche's damn books.

[[ US sending helmets, other non-lethal military aid to Ukraine ]]

I'll guess that if North Korea invades the South, we'll rush all kinds of non-lethal aid to them, as well ???

What's the military designation for balls and jacks?
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

That's an interesting idea!  Tell 'em the Russians are grazing cattle on land that doesn't belong to them!
