U.S. Moves Six Fighter Jets to Baltics, More Airmen to Poland »


The U.S. military is increasing its presence in Poland and the Baltics in response to the crisis in Ukraine, officials said Wednesday….
So much for not ratcheting up tensions, I guess…
Russia firing off ICBMs.. The United States reestablishing its Cold War footing.
Secretary of Defense Hagel also said supplying additional arms to Ukraine would be a joint NATO or presidential decision.
But another bit of Russia related news making big news is the news business itself. The LA TIMES reports it this way:
An American journalist said she was quitting a Russian-backed TV station in an on-air protest Wednesday, telling viewers “I cannot be part of a network funded by the Russian government, that whitewashes the actions of [President Vladimir] Putin.”

Her name is Liz Wahl. I’d imagine she is taking extra precautions since her decision and her video quitting has gone beyond viral ..
No word from RT on the Wahl decision. I am sure Vlad the Impaler will get over it.
