[ Editor’s Note: NATO may finally get the war that it has been wanting, but it will hardly turn out the way it wants, as they rarely do. Hence the name of the game, to survive a loss, is to line up a number of sacrificial lambs to take the big fall.
After another day of silly Western media, apparently salivating at the thought of the increase click ad revenue, some thought to pose a story about something bad happening due to miscommunication, or no communication at all.
The US had to quickly pull all of its lower level aerial surveillance out of Ukraine and move to the very high altitude options. One has to wonder with this admission if the US was supplying Kiev with military Intel.
But now that I bring that up, it opens the door that US aerial intel certainly had to be aware all of these past eight years that Kiev’s army was shelling the Donbas civilian line during that whole time, which killed thousands of innocent people.
And like the War of Terror drone operators wiped out wedding parties for a big catch, or helped the Saudis bomb the big wedding hall in Yemen to get a ‘big kill’, the US fingerprints on that mass killing evaporated quickly.
We now face, and so does the EU, what might be an unpleasant education in that the financial consequences might hit way more pocketbooks in the West than their respective populations are expecting.
Even Switzerland today froze all of its Russian accounts, when no real invasion occurred in Ukraine. After 8 years of Western support for killing Donbas civilians, Mr. Putin finally stepped in to stop it.
Stop for a minute and think about if the Donbas people had been Americans in the Great Lakes region, like Gordon and I are, and Canada had been shelling us for eight years, ignoring pleas to stop.
And then when the US finally sends the military into Canada to stop it, the US was cut off from the Swift system, all US accounts in foreign banks frozen, etc., for ‘invading’ Canada. And we the American taxpayers, would of course have to be paying for all of this.
If Bulgaria or Poland lets Ukrainian pilots fly their SU fighters on strikes against Russian troop targets in Ukraine, what do you think the odds could be that those bases could find themselves legitimate targets by Russia’s nuclear missile command?
And how happy would all the EU people be when they woke up and found their whole world was now changed because Western political and military command people wanted to show Putin who the boss was? Thus ends my cheery missive for today… Jim W. Dean ]

“We’re continuously seeing fighter planes come into very shut contact” within the area, stated Emma Claire Foley, a Russia specialist at disarmament group International Zero who oversees the Army Incidents Mission, which tracks “shut calls” between NATO and Russian navy forces.
“They’re not all the time utilizing transponders. They aren’t speaking with air site visitors management. In these conditions, there could be accidents … that may have huge penalties.”
“Any private relationship is immensely vital if you find yourself coping with these problems with unbelievable consequence,” she added, singling out “these pointless missions utilizing nuclear-capable plane.” “All of this presents a danger of escalation,” Foley stated.
When the Russian invasion started in earnest final week, U.S. forces within the area had been instantly ordered to drag again from the struggle zone.
“As quickly because the Russians did what they did, we needed to get out of the way in which,” stated one of many U.S. navy officers in Europe straight concerned within the planning.
That included redirecting a “fairly strong” operation of spy planes and drones flying over Ukrainian airspace, the official stated.
Now, the U.S. Air Power is counting on high-flying plane over Ukraine such because the U-2 spy aircraft that may keep away from most anti-aircraft missiles and drones as a result of there’s “a bit of bit extra danger tolerance for that.”
