from 21st Century Wire:
NATO’s Casus Belli: Western-backed president Petro Poroshenko inspects his latest shipment of arms from the US.
After the events this past November in Crimea’s Kerch Strait, it became clear that the US-installed Poroshenko government in Ukraine was ready and willing to initiate a staged provocation which might lead to a hot war with Russia – on behalf of Kiev’s benefactors in Washington and Brussels.
Such a planned provocation appears to be outlined in a recent US Senate resolution floated by war hawks in the US Congress, led by Senators Dick Burbin, Chris Murphy, Ben Cardin, Jeanne Shaheen, Jim Inhoffe, Marco Rubio, Chris Coons, John Barrasso, Richard Blumenthal, Jim Risch, Tammy Baldwin, Cindy Hyde-Smith, and Sheldon Whitehouse. The following is one of the more disturbing passages contained in this reckless Senate plan:
“Resolved, That the Senate calls upon the President to work with United States allies to promptly lead a robust multi-national freedom of navigation operation in the Black Sea to help demonstrate support for internationally recognized borders, bilateral agreements, and safe passage through the Kerch Strait and Sea of Azov and to push back against excessive Russian Federation claims of sovereignty.”
In short, this bipartisan cadre of pro-war US Senators are calling for increased hostilities with Russia. If war does break out, then these are the US Senators who should be held directly responsible for any deadly escalation or a false flag event designed to pull both NATO and Russia into a new conflict.
Another worrying sign is that Kiev is also reported to have amassed unprecedented heavy armaments along the front lines of the Donbass, eastern Ukraine:

Rick Wiles and his team at Tru News reveal the possibility of a Ukrainian and US-led naval confrontation with Russia, allegedly scheduled to happen as early as this Christmas Eve. While pundits may argue over the potential timeline for a staged provocation, the preponderance of evidence suggests that such a move may already be underway. Watch:
