Senior US official says Russia's test launch was 'on the books for some time' prior to Ukraine crisis, but timing is 'auspicious' - @NBCNews

Okay , phew...It was planned.

I would tend to agree. I do not think that Obama has much experience around people who are very direct, and mean what they say. Putin is very direct, for the most part, with what he wants to happen with this whole affair. Sadly, I don't think he's going to back down.


It's an ex head of the KGB against an ex community organiser. Literally.

I need a drink. A big one. And I don't mean tea.

Auspicious or suspicious?

The latter I think rather than the former...

Folks, Russia got just what they wanted. We look like pussies and Kerry does not help...at all...

First, nothing was done about Georgia.

Second, Syria cane and went with a 'warning' and Putin looked to have resolved it by calling out the US.

Now, you have them entering another country to secure ports and then secure gas lines.

Baltic is full and there are 'live fire 'excercises'

Ballistic missiles are tested..


What does the US do and report?

I mean, would you not push us around also????

Speaking of a little relief in this troubling time, I just remembered this. I was wondering if you asked Obama and Putin who is in ' their' axis of evil, what they might say .

My thoughts exactly! CNN is talking about this "test-fire" right now, and it's kind of funny with all the stuff going on that this is happening!

When you put it like that, it makes me want a drink as well, and I do not drink! I really think our government should move any criticisms of Putin to behind closed doors. Kerry really did come off as smarmy, which I do not think helped the situation, at all.

'#Russia ICBM test was planned ahead of #Ukraine and US had been notified of window, US official tells @LMartinezABC'

I would love to know how much notice? Five minutes maybe?

It's been so long since the Cold War that many people don't remember what it was like to grow up expecting to die in a nuclear war. I don't think the ICBM test firing is Putin playing a game of chicken. I think it's Putin trying to send a clear message that he's not playing games.

Unfortunately, I don't think that's how the Obama administration will interpret it.


Trust me his phone is blowing off the hook he knows how serious it is the pentagon will be screaming. Hes getting calls from other countries and this just after his threat. He did indeed threaten the US that if they put on sanctions Russia will retaliate and than test fired an ICBM. Put those two statements together and i think its making his intentions clear. Now the white house either calls his bluff or backs down it shows me either Putin is insane or he figures he can get the US to back out of the issue completely.So this is literally a JFK move and JFK was willing to start a war so is it worth it to Obama to continue sanctions?

PS the defense department claims they were notified of the launch. So it may be nothing as well.

ICBM tests are announced well ahead of launching, normally, as to not cause a panic, but you think with all that is going on that the test could have been cancelled or postponed, but they wanted it to continue as it sends a strong message not to meddle in our (Russia's) affairs.

The launch site, Kapustin Yar, is near the Volga River about 450km (280 miles) east of the Ukrainian border. Apparently.

Nothing to fear the US are here.

So the launch of the Balistic Missle was planned from the news sources.

It has been used as a rocket proving ground since the early 1950s.

It's the arab "spring" in Ukraine...

that's all this is... another "spring" the last one was orchestrated by the west, and now the ones who cried to the west for help are now indebted and beholden to the west.

This is insanity, not our business... let these people handle it...
