Biden administration warns imminent Russian invasion of Ukraine a ‘distinct possibility,’ urges Americans to leave immediately
…from the Washington Post
[ Editor’s Note: Anything is possible with the Ukraine standoff, but the US has turned a blind eye to what is probable, which is nothing. Why? It’s because it could not dominate the news with the Big Bad Russian Bear coverage, making Biden look like he is standing up to Putin.
Rationally, Putin has zero reason to attack Ukraine. He knows the sanctions are ready to be triggered. So why would he attack? The only feasible reason would be if the Ukie army launched a major attack on Donbass, which would be a crazy thing to do.
A Ukie Donbass attack would wave a green flag for the Russian forces to go in. Only a third party would want that, and the list of experienced provocateurs is short. Only one country has a record of getting away with such things.
Putin does not do stupid. He’s way beyond that. But what he is doing is putting out in the open, as long as NATO is expanding toward the Russian border, that it is a provocative act to which any rational leader would respond.
But NATO’s in-house idiots feel “if we just blame it on Putin, our respected publics will believe anything we say; and if they don’t, so what? They can’t do anything about it.”
What I smell here is someone hiding in the background that wants to create some sanctions chaos, shut Nordstream down, and cause an energy crisis in the middle of the winter. Look at the parties that would profit on that scenario and there is where the warmongers are headquartered… Jim W. Dean ]

The significant escalation in the U.S. warning came amid reports of new intelligence, and evidence on the ground, over the last several days indicating that Russia is now fully prepared to launch an invasion.
Sullivan said that the United States has no final confirmation that Russian President Vladimir Putin has made the final decision to attack. But, he said, “we believe he very well may give the final go order. That is a very distinct possibility.”
“It may well happen,” he repeated. “It may well happen soon.”
