Just like in this picture, Ukraine will be quickly be overwhelmed by Russian forces.
Can’t you feel it? Something big is coming in the Ukraine which is going to impact everyone across the planet. However, most of you will sit on your hands until it is too late as you have deluded yourself into thinking that because the conflict is half way around the world, that you are safe. Nothing could be further from the truth, and if you knew your history, you would already have begun to prepare for what is coming.
Americans of the World War II era do not need to learn this lesson of history. If Russia invades Ukraine and the US becomes militarily involved, your access to vital and basic resources could be called into question. Any one born into the “baby boom generation” and younger, has no idea what you could be facing. We are not fighting the Viet Cong or Iraq, we could be fighting a super power who has a significant reach deep inside of this country. My advice to you America is to make a significant shopping run after you are done reading this article.
Putin Has Won the First Battle of WWIII
It is now clear that the Russians are in complete control of the strategic infrastructure in Crimea. The Russians control the major roads, the government buildings, the airports, the key utilities and now there are reports surfacing that they are moving to control the distribution of food within Crimea. In short, Crimea is under Russian martial law.
The Ukraine Prepares for War with Russia
Nathan Frandino, Ukraine’s national security chief, accuses Russia of being behind the seizure of Crimea’s airports and warns against “direct aggression.” The following video speaks to the fact that Ukraine has drawn a line in the sand. Unlike, Obama, the paper tiger, the Ukraine is prepared to meet the Russian incursion into Crimea with steadfast Ukrainian aggression. The following short video is an Ukrainian declaration of war against further Russian aggression against the sovereignty of the Ukraine within the Republic of Crimea. There is no interpretation needed for the following Ukrainian declaration of war.
Can Ukraine Survive the Coming Russian Invasion?
For over a week, the Russian military has had a 150,000 man contingent “on military maneuvers” within mere miles from the Ukrainian border. Historically, military maneuvers are a precursor for a war that has gone live. Ukraine’s security council has ordered the Army to immediately put all military forces on war alert. However, Kiev’s small and poorly equipped military is no match for Russia’s incursion force into Crimea. My military sources tell me that the 150,000 Russian military force operating just off their border with Ukraine, could secure the country in less than three days unless the Russians encountered a decisive intervention from NATO. If the newly established pro-Western government of Ukraine is to survive, they will require military assistance from the West, primarily NATO and the forces of the United States in the very near future. The Russians reportedly have 7 to 10 days to close the door on any meaningful NATO intervention. In other words, if Putin is going to invade the Ukraine, it will be this week.
Without Western Support, Ukraine Could Be Facing Genocide
If the Russians move to subdue Ukraine this week before the West can respond militarily, deposed and pro-Russian Prime Minister Yanukovich could return to power. And given the brutality that Yanukovich displayed towards Ukrainians, a genocidal crackdown with Russian military support likely awaits the local citizens, particularly in Kiev where the protests were especially vehement. If the government of Ukraine were smart, they would begin to arm each and every citizen and begin to immediately coach them on how to carry out guerrilla warfare because the Ukrainian military could cease to exist in the next seven to ten days.
Options for the US Navy’s Sixth Fleet
As the US Navy’s Sixth Fleet moves towards Crimea, the Russian strategy of seizing the coastal ports and airports in Crimea now makes perfect sense. Without access to the ports and airports, American marines would find it difficult if not impossible to enter Crimea. There can be no question that the Russian Black Sea Fleet has deployed its submarines to a level where they will prevent the American navy from approaching Crimea and enacting a military intervention in support of the Ukrainian troops now trapped in Crimea. Meanwhile, if Putin acts now and invades Ukraine, it would make perfect sense. Possession, as they say, is 90% of the law. Clearly, NATO is not prepared to act in time to save Ukraine. If Russia is to attack to keep Ukraine from joining the European Union, the time is now.
There is no conclusion because these events are about to become very fluid. The only accurate conclusion that can be put upon this volatile situation is that if the Russians act now and they invade Ukraine, and the West does not find a way to militarily respond, then Putin will have moved a long way in securing his long range goal of constructing an Eurasian empire capable of challenging the US anywhere in the world. Now I turn my attention to the title of this article, AMERICANS BE WARNED: STOCK UP ON SUPPLIES NOW BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE! If the United States responds militarily, and the Russians retaliate, your ability to get food, heat your home, go to work and a whole host of other factors will be called into question because the Russians will respond within the borders of the United States. This will be the topic of the next article on this crisis with global implications.
