"We're not going to guess what's on Russia's mind, but we can see what Russia is doing on the ground – and that is of great concern. Russia has amassed around 20,000 combat-ready troops on Ukraine’s eastern border," NATO spokeswoman Oana Lungescu said in an emailed statement.
Moscow could use "the pretext of a humanitarian or peace-keeping mission as an excuse to send troops into Eastern Ukraine", she said.

That's good to hear. Surprised to see some talk shows questioning Israel of late, perhaps a turn for the better, have to wait and see. South African Apartheid seemed invincible until everyone turned their backs on them, same thing could happen to Israel.

I think both EU and US dont have the will to let this escalate into full blown war. They are just posturing because they want NATO to be strong again and to have a reason to exists. There wont be any need for NATO if everyone at peace with everything in Europe.
As for real warfare , it would start if US/EU putting ground troops on Ukraine soil. I predict the conflict will escalate slowly with Russian countering western moves until they met and one side started shooting.. Then we will all grab popcorn and see the World War III (LIVE) and maybe survived long enough before the Nukes start flying around..
We all will suffer if WW3 break out..

What I heard on the news this morning is to me a (red flag) ....Russian bombers are flying very, very close to U.S. airspace...within 200 miles. I know, I know the media may say these are normal air drills etc. but I think there is more to it.

With all the sanctions happening...and also the U.S. airstrikes in Iran happening, and also I think we should be looking at what North Korea may be planning for us.
For all we know Russia, some of the Middle East and North Korea may be cohorts with each other; and are planning something for the U.S. and Europe.
