Russian APC In SevastopolRussian military vehicles have been photographed in the main square of Sevastopol, and there are fears that Ukraine is about to plunge into a very bloody civil war.  The pro-Russian eastern half of Ukraine is in a state of shock, and many living there are openly calling on Russia to militarily intervene to protect them against the protest groups that have seized power in Kiev.  Perhaps a peaceful resolution can still be achieved, but at the moment a civil war seems quite likely.  And if war does erupt, the truth is that it is going to be exceedingly difficult for Russia to stay out of it.
Russia is not just sitting back and waiting to see what will happen.  They are actively moving military forces into position for a potential conflict.

“If Ukraine breaks apart, it will trigger a war. They will lose Crimea first [because] we will go in and protect [it], just as we did in Georgia,” an unidentified Russian official told the Financial Times.

 

So if Russia does take military action in Ukraine, will the West (US) respond with military action?
This proxy war in Ukraine has already caused permanent damage to the relationship between the United States and Russia, and many believe that this conflict is planting the seeds from which World War III may eventually erupt.

On December 17th, we warned SD readers that Senator Feinstein was drafting the most draconian anti-2nd amendment legislation imaginable, and that the Obama administration had its sights set on instigating the 2nd American Revolution by going after 100 million Americans’ guns.
Der Führer in Chief was on Meet the Press Sunday, and to no surprise, Obama stated he is putting his full weight behind Feinstein’s bill, which criminalizes the possession, use, and sale of nearly all guns.
Obama stated that “I’m going to be putting forward a package and I’m going to be putting my full weight behind it…
I’m going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.
