Crimea's state of emergency: Blackout after transmission towers blown up in Ukraine
Not the smartest move by the thugs in Ukraine... If I were calling the shots, I'd take out all generation plants supplying power to Kiev. That would send Ukraine into a free fall and although there might be international condemnation of the strike, turnabout is fair play, as they say.

Putin: Erdogan might have "decided to lick the Americans in a certain area"
Putin speaking rather frankly, but telling it like it is.

Britain Claims Putin Had Ex-KGB Killed
Like the proverbial broken clock that tells the right time twice a day, Alex Jones is right on this one. The bullshit report out of England claiming that Putin "probably" approved the murder of Litvinenko is just the usual state sponsored anti-Russian propaganda that we've all grown extremely weary of over the last few years. The people ain't buying the BS and we're getting sick and tired of the Jewish media trying to smear Russia with every chance it gets. It's old and worn out and only halfwits are taking it seriously anymore!

Putin 'probably' killed Litvinenko but he is also guilty for...
The claims made by the judge from England are being openly ridiculed and have spawned a new meme.

Not too many people are taking this Litvinenko thing seriously. It's pure speculation and the list of reasons why Putin probably had no knowledge of the murder is quite lengthy. The most obvious is that it would make no sense for Putin to authorize the use of a murder weapon so hard to obtain. Such a choice restricts the list of people who could have committed the dirty deed and something more discreet would have been used if the murder had been authorized by Putin. It's much more likely that the CIA committed the murder than that Putin was connected to it.

Tit for Tat: Russia denies SU-34 violates Turkish airspace on Friday
Turkey has no credibility at this point. NATO should kick them out since they've become an incredible liability.

Russian jets buzzed an American destroyer that was seventy miles from a Russian navy base in the Baltic Sea. CNN calls this provocative, but what do you call cruising that close to a Russian naval base? Go Russia!

Russian jet barrel-rolls over U.S. plane
This is pretty funny. The USA goes out of it's way to intimidate Russia and then whines about Russia doing something of an intimidating nature in return. This comment left by a viewer sums up the situation reasonably well:
The US has every right to be in international waters/airspace when and wherever they want to but lets be serious, the US sending it's most advanced destroyer warships and planes to the Baltics is a deliberate show of force to intimidate Russia, so don't get so butt hurt when Russia does these maneuvers they are just saying hey, we're not intimidated.
