    Radio Free Europe: I didn't know they we're still around.

    Second source reporting now small force of 30 tanks have crossed the border. Too small a force to be a serious threat and probably nothing more than sabre rattling. Or a beer run.

    Now multiple sources reporting. NATO saying incursion is too small to be a viable threat.

    Putin is testing the water and/or trying to provoke a military response from the Ukraine...in which case (in his mind) he'll be justified to go full bore. He knows we're a toothless tiger, and no longer a stabilizing force for the world.

    We decided our options on Ukraine, with strategic decisions over the last five years. We have no options now, and the WORLD knows it.

    Yep...Putin is watching northern Iraq closer
    than we are. He knows he couldn't go mano o mano against us in Europe for very long so he's watching to see how we are willing to protect another former allie. These terrorists originated out of Syria if I remember right and guess who is in bed real snuggly with Syria and probably the main reason we have not done anything with supporting the Syrian rebels. But that could also be because, as mentioned by others, friends can turn on friends very quickly over there. Putin is testing...testing...testing us because he is a karate strategist and he knows the best way to defeat your opponent is to study your opponents reactions before striking.

    Putin absolutely has to have Ukraine to protect those pipelines he is going to blackmail Europe's industry and people with this winter. Then he'll buy and extort his way back to the Adriatic Sea through those former Soviet countries that are NATO in name only now.

    Putin is not a communist...he is a wanna be czar. Once he owns Europe and can blackmail Europe into buying from Russia instead of the U.S. he has our economy by the throat. Then if he can manage to get the dollar replaced by the Euro as the world's reserve currency he's got grandma and her life savings and any retirement in the stock market by the throat and then we're printing money like Germany did pre-WWll. He's already stated he wants to form a Euro-Asian economy and economists have said Ukraine is the key for him to do that.

    "Strategic"? That's quite charitable. More likely decisions by default. Obama's approach to the job is day to day knee jerk that might be roughly considered tactical.

    Ukraine reporting it has engaged and destroyed Russian military column.

    Vehicles were clearly marked with Russian military symbols.

    Unconfirmed reports are Russian infantry has crossed into Eastern Ukraine and heavy fighting is underway. Russian aid convoy was discovered to be mostly empty upon independent inspection. All of the above is yet unconfirmed.

    No response from NATO yet or even if the reports are valid.
