Chances For Diplomatic Solution To Ukraine Conflict "Slim", Soc Gen Says

Depending on which side of the story you believe, the crisis in Ukraine represents either an attempt by the Kremlin to realize territorial ambition and reassert Russian dominance in the Baltics by violating other countries’ sovereignty or it represents yet another attempt by Washington to prop up puppet governments with financial and military support in order to advance US foreign policy aims even if that means risking armed conflict.

The Real Reason Harry Reid is Retiring

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) explains his shocking decision to not seek re-election and retire when his term ends in 2016 by telling the New York Times, “he was worried his race would consume campaign money that would be needed in other competitive states as Democrats try to regain control of the Senate.” “I think it is unfair for me to be soaking up all the money to be re-elected with what we are doing in Maryland, in Pennsylvania, in Missouri, in Florida,” Reid told the Times. Reid said neither his recent eye injury nor concern over his chances of winning played a factor in his decision.

Jade Helm 15: Military Drill Identifying “Hostile” U.S. States Sparks Alarm

A massive U.S. military drill dubbed “Jade Helm 15” lists Texas, Utah, and part of California as “hostile” or “insurgent pocket” territory. The unclassified information about this drill is causing widespread alarm nationwide, with more than a few analysts suggesting it may be some sort of exercise practicing to impose martial law on Americans fed up with an out-of-control federal government. During the exercises, which will take place over the summer, Special Forces from various branches of the military will work with local law-enforcement in scenarios that, to critics at least, sound suspiciously like they are aimed at subduing rebellious American civilians and states amid a civil war or large-scale unrest. The federal government issued a response dismissing the concerns and saying that the training is to help U.S. forces prepare for overseas missions, but not everyone is convinced.
