Tanks and Nukes: NATO Statements on Ukraine; McCain Will Go Ballistic

In the wake of renewed fighting following the breakdown of the Ukraine ceasefire agreement, Nato Accuses Moscow of Helping Ukraine Rebels to Carve Out State.

That Russia is helping the rebels is certainly believable. Yet, some of the NATO statements are so preposterous that everything NATO says is suspect. Let’s take a look.

NATO: “We have seen columns of Russian equipment, primarily Russian tanks, Russian artillery, Russian air defence systems and Russian combat troops entering into Ukraine,” General Philip Breedlove said on a trip to Bulgaria as fears mounted that a tenuous ceasefire would collapse.

Mish: Where can you hide a tank? More importantly, where can you hide "columns of equipment, primarily tanks"? If columns of tanks were heading from Russia into Ukraine, both US and NATO would have satellite images. So where the hell are the images?

NBC Again Reports Magical Invisible Russians Invading Ukraine…

Notice, again, the complete and utter lack of evidence. These mysterious Russian columns appear sporadically, quite often after a visit to Poroshenko by the State Dept. However, they universally evade all video evidence and actual witnesses on the ground. No one ever has a cell phone when they show up? Or they just can’t be recorded like the vampires of legend?
