    KIEV, Ukraine — More than 200 trucks from a long-stalled Russian convoy said to be carrying humanitarian aid crossed the border into eastern Ukraine on Friday without Red Cross escorts, drawing angry accusations from Ukraine that Moscow had broken its word and mounted what a senior Ukrainian security official called a “direct invasion.”

    At a news briefing in Washington, the Pentagon spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, condemned the convoy as an “unauthorized entry into Ukraine” and called for the vehicles’ immediate withdrawal.

    See number five. That's what you got unless you can prove your claims. So far you and "the guys" have been batting zero.

    "accelerating offensive" translated from the original newspeak this means the ethnic cleansing is taking on steam, which in itself is doubtful seeing as how Washington, the Ukrainian govt and the western media have thus far been long on unfounded claims and threats and short on actual evidence.

    Breaking a supply blockade? Yes..I would say that is essential if you wish to continue fighting.

    I just can't get myself worked up over this.

    Our foreign policy is incoherent and our president is disengaged.

    Whatever happens happens. We are all totally powerless with less than zero influence on this administration.

    And little help will be forthcoming from Europe.

    Ukraine is on its own.

    I knew the world banks and New World Order were behind that!

    This just in from Yahoo news (hardly a conservative site):

    German leader Merkel is seeking a cease fire. She is the leader of the free world.

    and I always thought that meant that you had to eat 2 of the dogs without buns !
    Or is it a health issue - dieticians tell us not to use buns on dogs -....... Hmmm, the plot thickens.
