Black Sea Face Off: Is Ukraine Provoking War With Russia?

The Russian seizure of two Ukrainian warships sailing through the Kerch Strait has flared up tensions almost to the point of war. Are special interests pushing Ukraine to provoke Russia? Is Kiev operating all on its own? Are Washington neocon fingerprints on this little operation? Will it spin out of control?

All these calls for more sanctions. Haha, sanctions are a Joke . All this countries could give a crap about sanctions. They find ways around it. Russia is garbage. I don't care for everything but I'll take living in America over any other country. Facts are these countries China and Russia are Authoritarian and despise freedom. I have a good living standard in America and can't imagine living under any other crap shoot country.

Ron paul enjoys his freedom of speech in America, but if he lived in Russia he wouldn't have freedom of speech. I agree with some of what Ron Paul agrees with on some issues. But he shouldn't carry water for a Authoritarian government.

You are not right about Russia. I am a supporter of decentralization, but the referendum in Crimea was a very similar case to the referendum in Kosovo or Catalonia. The opposers boycotted it because of the fact that it was unconstitutional, so you cannot tell the result like almost all of Crimeans wanted to join the RF. In Russia, there are significant threats to liberty. Opposition leaders and criticizing journalists are attacked. Most of the workers are employees of heavily subsidized state companies. You cannot be openly homosexual in Russia. You cannot question the mainstream interpretation of history. And closing… Read more »

the gunboats have the same design as the 110's in the USCG so the Navy equivalent also could navigate the Sea of Azov. The Royal Navy also possesses comparable hardware.

What's this? PBA meeting? Putin Bots Anonymous? Ron has lost his damned mind…

Trump needs to saber rattle (at least) at Russia in advance of Mueller's report. Then he can tell us, "How can you say that Putin played dirty tricks to get me elected? I'm threatening to go to war with Russia over the Kerch Strait." So this incident is about two things: Trump's need to distract us from the Mueller investigation (and from Manafort in particular), and Porshenko's need to get reelected. (Interesting to think about a country where declaring martial law will make a president popular…)

To all those commenters if you lead with "We" don't have the right, you don't fully understand whats going on, this is not American or public policy, this is the actions of the shadow government implemented through the CIA, the American people are as much a victim of these hidden nefarious dealings as the people who are on the receiving end of this war mongering Geo political agenda. The push their agenda using your money and military.

I like Ron Paul's liberty's reports, but, please, be more careful. Sometimes (and this time including) you Americans talk like there are only you on the world (and couple other powers). You don't care about the small nations (although Ukraine is not so small). You just see the interests of Russia. You sound like: "Who is Ukraine? We do not care about Ukraine! But Russia!!! If there are Russian interests there, we should let Russians do their business." But if you signed Budapest agreement in 1994 when Ukraine was told to give all nuclear weapons to Russia, that Ukraine possessed… Read more »

স্যার পুতিন ইউক্রেন দখল করে নিবে আর আফগানিস্তান, লিবিয়া, ইরাক, তুরস্ক , মিশর ও ইরানের সাথে যত রকমের অত্যাধুনিক অস্ত্র ও সেনাবাহিনী নতুন করে পূর্ণগঠন করে দেবে খুব তাড়াতাড়ি দেশ গুলির এক হয়ে যাবে রাশিয়া।

Russia can invade Kiev faster than you can say "What? America doesn't want to send it's sons to die to make Ukraine Great Again?"
