I think the US would have absolutely no problem pulling off a draft if the US mainland was being invaded by a superior military force


Which no one has the capability to do.

Your red dawn fantasy im afraid wont be coming true any time soon!

Its the largest in Crimia, reason for this is still unknown.

The reason is obvious: Russia wants to control the flow of information. (Possible inference: things are starting to go badly for them already.)

Forgive my lack of immediately appreciating the importance of this... My Geography on areas below capital city or major region place name is lacking, but I looked it up.



Yikes... This isn't the Crimea anymore.


I had to look it up as well, and according to the Guardian Live Blog it looks like things are getting tense in Odessa as well. According to Google maps, Odessa looks to be about a 9 hour drive southwest from Donestk, and is on the coast of the Black Sea close to the border of Moldova.


There are reports of pro-Russian protesters storming government buildings in Donetsk (confirmed by Reuters) and Odessa.

Yes I can confirm that Odessa is flying Russian flag for 2 days, so is Lugansk in the East and Kharkiv in North East, as well as Sumy in north East.

Zaporizhiya had pro Russian protests as well as other cities.

More on the pro Russian take overs in Donetsk and Kharkiv by www.kyivpost.com


Donetsk administration seized

March 3, 3 p.m. -- Around 20 journalists have been blocked at the fourth floor of Donetsk oblast administration seized by the pro-Russian protesters. The journalists stayed in the building since 10 a.m. covering an emergency session of local parliament where businessman Serhiy Taruta was to be presented as the new governor, when the building was taken over by nearly 100 protesters, with several hundreds more of them remaining outside. Oleksiy Matsuka, editor in chief of Novosti Donbassa, a local news outlet, two reporters of which have been trapped inside the building reports that the police guarding the administration made a corridor for the protesters to enter the building. Matsuka reports that the protesters are acting aggressively and journalists are in danger. Matsuka reports that two local stringers working for L’Agence France Press, and journalists from Russia’s ITAR TASS agency are also blocked inside the building. -- Vlad Lavrov

No one in charge of Kharkiv State government

March 3, 2:54 p.m. It appears that no one is in charge of the Kharkiv Oblast Admininstration. In Kharkiv, government workers say they no longer work with the previous governor, Mikhail Dobkin, who was appointed by ousted President Viktor Yanukovych, and a newcomer has not been appointed yet. There's a lot of frustration and confusion -- Daryna Shevchenko

Well North Korea fired 2 short range missiles off its east coast according to South Korea last night. Maybe this was a "we got your back, jack" moment. Who knows...?

Wow, I just can't stop thinking about Hitler's annexations and incursions prior to the invasion of Poland in 1939! The world up in arms, but unable/unwilling to use military force; pro German protestors welcoming thier conquering heroes.

I just see too many parallels...

Doubtful.

Britain France and Germany would crush the Russia military before they even got 100 miles in. France and UK share a lot of US tec and so does Germany, our armed forces are (for the time being) a few decades ahead of Russia.

In a war of Defense the EU will win. Its simple logic. It if the EU went on the offensive against Russia the problems would kick in.

Odessa state council building being stormed too.


Odessa regional council stormed March 3, 3:15 p.m. -- Some 700 pro-Russian protesters stormed the building of Odessa oblast council when it was having an emergency session about the situation in the country. Around 11 a.m. a member of pro-Russian organization broke into the council meeting hall and demanded to talk to the council. When he was refused, the crowd tried to get into the building. Tear gas was used. The crowd demanded that Odessa council didn't keep allegiance to Kyiv. Around 2 p.m. protesters put a Russian flag on the council building. On their demand, the council asked Kyiv to not dissolve the Berkut rior police squads as it planned to do. Other demands were turned down.


Reports of counter rally of 15,000 being held too.

Note, these are taking place in mainland Ukraine, not Crimea.

If Russia is moving on Odessa, the United States Navy will be called in to blockade the Black Sea. This is Obama's "Kennedy moment."

I would imagine they have been advised how to play this by the US and UK who have just visited. Don't poke the Bear, let it have it's tantrum and we'll start turning the screw economically. The Mafia in Moscow won't be so brazen when the petro-dollars stop flowing in and all their assets in the West are frozen - of which there are a lot in the UK!

Mate, what the bloody hell is going on with police/army presence at these government buildings?
Has the new Ukraine government failed to defend these areas from these mobsters?
