According to the statement, the purpose of entering into the waters of the cruiser of the Black Sea is to "ensure security and stability in the region."

Americans have forgotten what incident happened in 1988, and is being repe ...
G7 Leaders Threaten Hard-hitting Sanctions On Russia The United States and its allies used the first Group of Seven (G7) meeting without Russia in 17 years to condemn Moscow’s actions in Ukraine and threaten hard-hitting sanctions if President Vladimir Putin does not help restore stability. Meeting in Brussels rather than the Black Sea resort of Sochi – a snub to Russia which was supposed to have hosted the G8 – Western powers and Japan delivered strong rhetoric, even if the EU’s commitment to further sanctions remains in doubt. “We are united in condemning the Russian Federation’s continuing violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine,” the United States, Germany, Japan, France, Britain, Italy and Canada said in a joint statement. “Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea, and actions to destabilize eastern Ukraine, are unacceptable and must stop.” That message was reinforce by President Barack Obama, who said Russia’s economy was already suffering and would only ...
Pentagon Deploys Another Warship to Black Sea "The United States military confirmed on Tuesday that a guided missile cruiser is en route to the Black Sea as worries persist about the ongoing crisis between Ukraine and Russia. "I can confirm the Vella Gulf, a Navy cruiser, will be going in to the Black Sea probably later this week," Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby told the press on Tuesday, AFP reported. ..
What about Moldova? One of Europe's poorest countries, Moldova has been governed by pro-Western leaders since 2009. It has clinched an association agreement with the European Union, as currently sought by the pro-Western leaders who came to power in Ukraine after the removal of Moscow-backed President Viktor Yanukovych. The small country of 3.5 million people is, like Ukraine, indebted to Moscow for natural gas imports that help keep its economy afloat. As with Ukraine, Russia opposes Moldova's efforts to build links with the EU. Moldovan President Nicolae Timofti has warned Russia not to consider any move to take over Transnistria in the same way it wrestled Crimea away from Kiev. Timofti has echoed criticism from Ukraine's pro-Western leaders, the United States and EU countries when speaking of Russia's actions in the Black Sea peninsula.

Russia's President Vladimir Putin and the speakers of the country's upper and lower houses of Parliament signed a deal today that formally annexes Ukraine's Crimea region. Russia's upper house of Parliament unanimously approved the ratification of the treaty today, a day after the lower house, the State Duma, overwhelmingly passed it. Russia's moves to annex Crimea, following a contested weekend referendum in the Black Sea peninsula, have turned a confrontation with Europe and the United States into the biggest crisis in East-West relations since the Cold War. ~ CNN
Rosja imperium zla. Ukraine’s Western-backed interim Prime Minister has accused Moscow of using all its means to harm his country following the annexation of the strategic Black Sea peninsula of Crimea into the Russian Federation. “It is clear that the Russian Federation will use all means to destroy Ukraine as a state. These are political, economic, diplomatic and military means. This is why we devised a plan of reaction on each situation,” Arseniy Yatsenyuk told journalists in Kiev on Friday after returning from a European Union summit in Brussels. Yurii Klymenko, Ukraine’s ambassador to the United Nations, has said his country is seeking a peaceful end to the crisis with Russia, despite worrying signals about the Kremlin's plans. Meanwhile, Vitaly Klitschko, a former professional boxer and leader of the Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform party, has urged the United States to impose tougher sanctions on Russia. "We expect tougher economic sanctions against Russia from the US. Not only in . ...
Kiev (CNN) -- Russia's lower house of parliament overwhelmingly approved a treaty Thursday to annex the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea from Ukraine, prompting tougher sanctions from the United States. Russia responded with its own sanctions against a list of U.S. officials and lawmakers. After Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had presented the treaty and urged lawmakers to accept the region as a part of the Russian Federation, the document was approved on a vote of 443 to 1. Russia's Federation Council, the upper house of the parliament, will hold a similar vote Friday, completing ratification of a treaty that was signed by President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday. Speaking "on behalf" of Putin, Lavrov had told the State Duma that folding Crimea into Russia was needed to protect ethnic Russians there. "I am certain that passing the document will become a turning point in the destiny of multi-ethnic nations of Crimea and Russia, who are related with close ties of the historical unity," Lavrov said. Russia' ...
- Antiwar.com Original - - Brzezinski Mapped Out the Battle for Ukraine in 1997 Posted By Chris Ernesto On March 14, 2014 @ 11:00 pm In Uncategorized | No Comments Why would the United States run the risk of siding with anti-Semitic, neo-Nazis in Ukraine? One of the keys may be found by looking back at Zbigniew Brzezinski’s 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard in which he wrote, “Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard, is a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia. Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire.” “However, if Moscow regains control over Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as access to the Black Sea, Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia.” The former National Security advisor to Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981 and top foreign policy advisor to Barack Obama, Brzezinski wrote that US policy should be ...
UKRAINE FORMS NEW DEFENSE FORCE, SEEKS WESTERN HELP By Alastair Macdonald and Andrew Osborn KIEV/SEVASTOPOL (Reuters) - Ukraine's interim leaders established a new National Guard on Tuesday and appealed to the United States and Britain for assistance against what they called Russian aggression in Crimea under a post-Cold War treaty. Blaming their ousted predecessors for the weakness of their own armed forces, acting ministers told parliament Ukraine had as few as 6,000 combat-ready infantry and that the air force was outnumbered nearly 100 to 1 by Moscow's superpower forces. There was no let-up in the war of words, with the pro-Russian regional parliament in Crimea approving a declaration of independence that will take effect if people on the Black Sea peninsula vote to unite with Russia in a referendum on Sunday. The national parliament in Kiev said it would dissolve the Crimean assembly if it did not cancel the plebiscite. Viktor Yanukovich, whose overthrow last month after protests triggered the graves ...
UKRAINE: Confrontation in Ukraine as diplomacy stalls Mon, Mar 10 2014 By Andrew Osborn and Natalia Zinets SEVASTOPOL/KIEV (Reuters) - A pro-Russian force opened fire in seizing a Ukrainian military base in Crimea on Monday and NATO announced reconnaissance flights along its eastern frontiers as confrontation around the Black Sea peninsula showed no sign of easing. Ukrainian activists trying to cross into Crimea to show solidarity with opponents of last week's Russian military takeover there said they were halted by men in uniforms of the now outlawed riot police. One of these fired at close range, hitting a man in the chest, apparently with rubber bullets. With diplomacy at a standstill, Russia said the United States had spurned an invitation to hold new talks on resolving the crisis, the worst East-West standoff since the Cold War - although Washington said later a meeting of foreign ministers was possible this week, if Moscow shows it is ready to "engage". The U.S.-led NATO defense alliance said AWACS ...
David Chase Taylor March 7, 2014 Truther.org . SWITZERLAND, Zurich — Unable to stage a Chinese-based nuclear drone attack on the state of California this March, international intelligence agencies are evidently plotting a Russian assault on U.S. ships in the Black Sea, and/or a cyber-attack against U.S. and NATO interests in Eastern Europe and the U.S. If successful, the false-flag attacks would trigger a new and improved Cold War between the United States and Russia. The surprise attacks could theoretically lead to a mini-war of sorts which would then be used to drive a political wedge between Russia and the West. In other words, a redux of the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 is in order and the Crimea Peninsula is the new Cuba. . Since pro-Russian forces have taken de facto control over the Crimea, the scene has also been set for a redux of the Crimean War (1853-1857) in which Russia lost to an alliance of France, Britain, the Ottoman Empire, and Sardinia. As of March 7, 2014, Ukraine reportedly missed i ...
OUR PROPOSED SOLUTION TO THE UKRAINE CRISIS Per the Budapest Memorandums 1994, reconfirmed in 2009, the United States is obligated, and bound by multinational treaty, to defend the National Security of Ukraine. However, that doesn't mean Ukraine can escalate hostilities, expecting us to do the fighting for them. Thus, it would be in our best interests, to mediate a peaceful resolution between Ukraine and Russia. Let's look at what's at stake. The territory under contention is Crimea, a peninsula extending from Ukranian mainland into the Black Sea. The importance of the territory is that it houses the vital port city of Sevastopol, Ukraine's 2nd largest port[1]. It is home of Russia's Black Sea Fleet, and the location of Russian military bases, leased from Ukraine through 2042. This is the "warm water" port (doesn't freeze over in the winter) that Russia had fought centuries of wars to obtain, and had fought centuries of wars to hold. It's obvious why Russia wants it so badly. But they can't just ma ...
U.S. warns Russia: Ukraine intervention would be 'grave mistake As Ukraine accused Russia of a "military invasion and occupation" on Friday, the United States warned Russia that intervention in Ukraine would be a "grave mistake." Ukraine said Russian troops had taken up positions around a coast guard base and two airports on its strategic Crimean Peninsula. The Kremlin kept silent on the accusations, as the crisis deepened between two of Europe's largest countries. The UN Security Council met Friday afternoon to discuss the crisis. Ukraine's UN Ambassador Yuriy Sergeyev said he told the UNSC that Russian military helicopters and transport planes are entering his country, and that Russian armed forces seized Ukraine's main airport. He told reporters outside the council that neither major airport in Ukraine is under national control and that the main airport was "captured by Russian armed forces." He said 11 Russian military helicopters had been brought in along with M-24 military transport helicopter. Serg ...

Ukraine: Parliament boss takes presidential powers By YURAS KARMANAU and MARIA DANILOVA Associated Press KIEV, Ukraine (AP) -- A top Ukrainian opposition figure assumed presidential powers Sunday, plunging Ukraine into new uncertainty after a deadly political standoff - and boosting long-jailed Yulia Tymoshenko's chances of a return to power. The whereabouts and legitimacy of President Viktor Yanukovych are unclear after he left the capital for his support base in eastern Ukraine. Allies are deserting him one by one, even as a presidential aide told The Associated Press on Sunday that he's hanging on to his presidential duties. The newly emboldened parliament, now dominated by the opposition, struggled Sunday to work out who is in charge of the country and its ailing economy. Fears percolated that some regions such as the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea might try to break away. Three months of political crisis have left scores of people dead in a country of strategic importance to the United States, Europea ...

Western Leaders Shun Winter Olympics Russian President Vladimir Putin will host friendly heads of state from China, Ukraine, and Belarus, as well as Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who headed to Sochi just hours after attending a rally demanding the return of Japanese islands seized by Moscow. But leaders from France, the United States, Germany, and the UK won't turn up for the games (Reuters). Security in Sochi is tight to mitigate the risk of terrorist attacks by Islamic militants in the North Caucasus region. One measure, for example, includes tall fences topped with razor wire along the border with Abkhazia that extend offshore in the Black Sea (AP). Meanwhile, many Russians have expressed discontent over the cost of the Games, the most expensive Winter Olympics ever, as they struggle in an economy that expanded just 1.3 percent in 2013 (Bloomberg).
WASHINGTON (AFP) – President Barack Obama said that the United States would not need to match the huge $50 billion shelled out by Russia if it wanted to host another Olympic Games. The massive operation to transform the Black Sea resort of Sochi for the Winter Games, which opened on Friday, has been...
"What is the United States doing about all this? The United States has stationed two warships, which can launch helicopters into Sochi in case an evacuation is needed, in the nearby Black Sea. The United States is also stationing at least two dozen FBI agents in the area and may be sharing sophisticated counterbomb equipment with Russian authorities. US athletes have also been warned not to wear their uniforms outside of the secured perimeter. Several US congressmen, including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) have expressed anger that Russia is not cooperating fully with US security efforts." Sounds Fun. Yikes.
“On this day, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and Premier Joseph Stalin meet at Yalta, in the Crimea, to discuss and plan the postwar world—namely, to address the redistribution of power and influence. It is at Yalta that many place the birth of the Cold War. It had already been determined that a defeated Germany would be sliced up into zones occupied by the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union, the principal Allied powers. Once in Germany, the Allies would see to the deconstruction of the German military and the prosecution of war criminals. A special commission would also determine war reparations. But the most significant issue, the one that marked the conference in history, was Joseph Stalin's designs on Eastern Europe. (Stalin's demands had started early with his desire that the location of the conference be at a Black Sea resort close to the USSR. He claimed he was too ill to travel far.) Roosevelt and Churchill attempted to create a unite ...
Pentagon will send two warships into Black Sea in case of Olympic terror By Jim Miklaszewski, NBC News chief Pentagon correspondent The Pentagon formally announced Thursday that it plans to send two Navy warships into the Black Sea as a “prudent precaution” in case of a terrorist attack at the Sochi Olympics — but officials stressed that responsibility for security at the games rests with Russia. Adm. John Kirby, a Pentagon spokesman, emphasized that the Russian government is taking Olympic security “very, very seriously.” He said that while the United States is ready to assist, there have been “no such requests, and we don’t envision any.” Military officials have said that the warships could be used to evacuate Americans in the event of an attack, but security analysts have discounted the possibility that Russian President Vladimir Putin would ask for help. Kirby also dismissed the possibility that American technology to detect and defend against remote-controlled bombs could be shared wi ...
"Israel's Lost Tribes" As Israel left the Caucasus Mountains and migrated into Europe, and to North America, they became known as Caucasians. If you are a Caucasian you are also an Israelite, according to Noah Webster and the Holy Bible. The Webster Encyclopedia of Dictionaries (Copyright 1958, Literary Press, p.64) says "Caucasian" pertains to the white race originating from the Caucasus Mountains near the Black Sea. The Holy Bible states that the House of Israel would be scattered north of the river Euphrates (I Kings 14:15). This promise was fulfilled when, from 745-721 B.C., all ten tribes were taken captive and driven by the Assyrians into the Caucasus region between the Black and Caspian Seas (II Kings 17:6 ; 18:9-11). Hosea 2:6 says, "...I will hedge up they way with thorns, and make a wall that she shall not find her paths." In this wasn't God was making it clear that the Israelites were not to return to Palestine? The United States in Prophecy Are the people of the United States, the British Nati ...
On this Day, March 12th 1947 – In a dramatic speech to a joint session of Congress, President Harry S. Truman asks for U.S. assistance for Greece and Turkey to forestall communist domination of the two nations. Historians have often cited Truman’s address, which came to be known as the Truman Doctrine, as the official declaration of the Cold War. In February 1947, the British government informed the United States that it could no longer furnish the economic and military assistance it had been providing to Greece and Turkey since the end of World War II. The Truman administration believed that both nations were threatened by communism and it jumped at the chance to take a tough stance against the Soviet Union. In Greece, leftist forces had been battling the Greek royal government since the end of World War II. In Turkey, the Soviets were demanding some manner of control over the Dardanelles, territory from which Turkey was able to dominate the strategic waterway from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. ...
The Cold War: On this day in history [1988], two Soviet warships bump two U.S. navy vessels in waters claimed by the Soviet Union. The incident was an indication that even though the Cold War was slowly coming to a close, old tensions and animosities remained unabated. The incident between the ships took place in the Black Sea, off the Crimean peninsula. The American destroyer Caron and cruiser Yorktown were operating within the 12-mile territorial limit claimed by the Soviet Union. They were challenged by a Soviet frigate and destroyer and told to leave the waters. Then, according to a Navy spokesman, the Soviet ships "shouldered" the U.S. ships out of the way, bumping them slightly. There was no exchange of gunfire, and the American ships eventually departed from the area. There was no serious damage to either U.S. vessel or any injuries. In many ways, the incident was an unnecessarily provocative action by the United States. For many years, the United States had challenged the Russian claim of a 12-mil ...
Viewed as a decisive period in the history of our country, 1812-15, Canadians from province to province are celebrating the bicentennial year of the War of 1812. Prominent events are being recreated and famous historical figures are being featured at workshops, seminars, exhibitions and various artistic presentations. Included in this historic period is the story of the arrival of thousands of people of African ancestry to the shores of Nova Scotia.   Long before June of 1812 tensions were running high between the Americans and the British. Issues involving expansion by the Americans into North America and continued feelings of dissent following the American Revolution (1775-1783) contributed to the conflict.  On June 18th tensions boiled over and the United States declared war on Great Britain with the objective to conquest British North America, mainly Upper and Lower Canada.   The British, who were already occupied battling Napoleon Bonaparte in France, set up a Naval Blockade on the eastern coast o ...

Russia says it is planning to hold a series of major naval drills off the Syrian coast in the Mediterranean to confront United States and its allies as the US and its allies plan to deploy missiles on Syria’s border. Russian Defense Ministry said on Friday that vessels from the country’s Black Sea and Baltic fleets will take part in the exercises, which are set to be held in the eastern Mediterranean. According to the ministry, the drill will involve anti- submarine, anti- ship and air defense operations. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu had earlier said that the naval exercises would be "the biggest in the history of the country." "A tactical group of Black Sea Fleet warships led by the Moskva cruiser will stage a naval exercise in the eastern Mediterranean," the Ministry said without giving an exact date for the exercises. Russia has a naval base at Syria's port of Tartus. In August 2012, three Russian warships performed maritime exercises in the Mediterranean. The upcoming drill comes against ...

Iranian assets in United States mosques, universities activated for potential terrorist attacks Posted by National Director, Dee on July 22, 2012 at 6:59am in Stealth Jihad Send Message View Discussions . Iranian assets positioned in the United States have been activated and are actively working to acquire intelligence and equipment that might be useful in terror attacks, according to a former member of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards. The information comes after a bus carrying Israeli youths exploded Wednesday in a Black Sea resort in Bulgaria, killing six and injuring 30 others. Fire engulfed the bus after the attack, which occurred as the bus was on its way back to the youths’ hotel. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Iran and vowed to retaliate. Ominously, the attack took place on the anniversary of the Jewish Community Center bombing in Buenos Aires, Argentina that killed 85 and injured more than 100 in 1994. Several Iranian officials were implicated in that attack, including the curr ...
Fifty years ago today, July 19, 1962, I took one step forward, and along with several other young men and old boys from around northeastern PA, raised my right hand and swore the following oath: "I, Leland A Coy, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
