Will the crisis in Ukraine escalate to World War III?

    Will the crisis in Ukraine escalate to World War III?

    Everything depends on the US. We are the ones who started the conflict. We are the ones, in our logic of destabilization of Russia, that overthrew the existing government. We are the ones financing militarily the "Ukrainian rebels". We are the ones that allowed a minority of Ukrainians to launch missiles on Russian land. We are the ones who suddenly don't see those Ukrainians as bellicose. Why aren't we intervening? Aren't we everywhere else? When Crimea decided through a referendum to attach to former ally Russia, it was their right. Everybody knows that we are trying to show Europe that the Russians are volatile. But so far they are VERY consistent. Few days ago, I read that CIA agents sabotaged the Russian pipeline that provides gas to Europe. It is the key.
    May I remind you that 100 years ago the archduke of Sarajevo was assassinated that triggered WWI. It doesn't seem to be a coincidence that the US through the Ukrainians' (their puppet, remember our representative's famous words "F--K EUROPE") missile against the Malaysian airline failed their false flag operation. But it says it all. It will happen. It's just a question of timing. You remember Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan... they were in Brzezinski's project as well as Russia.
    The question is DO WE WANT WAR? Because, this time, it won't be abroad but on our land and with our and their nuclear powers, it is our annihilation as for humanity.

      This answer makes a lot of sense. Max, I can tell you don't get your info from the major "news" networks and that you actually use your head for something other than an ornament. Good for you.

      Robert, we only use 10% of our brain, why not maximizing it? Like you I fence for independence and freedom.

    We are already fighting WWIII against terrorism. It's a different type of world war. I don't believe we will see global fighting as in the two previous world wars but we will see many conflicts such as Ukraine, Israel, Iraq and Syria. Besides these conflicts provide more profits for the arms dealers in the west. The UK and USA are still suppling Russia with arms despite the so called sanctions.

      Obviously, the terrorist war controllable. And this war is controlled from the United States. See how many NATO bases on the world map and draw a conclusion - who is the aggressor: Russia or the United States?

    I have a feeling it just might. Because there were so many people from different countries on that airplane it could prompt many people to attack Russia or Ukraine.

    No. Most of the citizens in the U.S. could careless about the Ukraine. Secondly there are no major oil reserves which we are dependent upon. Neither Russia or the U.S. wants to unleash nuclear bombs on each other.
    More likely what will happen is each side will arm the troops they support and let them kill each other. However there will not be a direct war between the U.S. and Russia.

      Who threw nuclear bombs in Nagasaki and Hiroshima? Did you forget your own history. To assert that the US won't use it shows that your knowledge of the reality is erroneous.

      maxoxam41, No I did not forget my history. I believe there were (lessons) learned from that which is why it has not happened again! No nukes were dropped in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, or Afghanistan. In a WWIII (both) nations would have nukes.

      maxoxam41 - In answer to your question, "Who threw nuclear bombs at Nagasaki and Hiroshima?", I have to ask, "Who attacked Pearl Harbor?" The alternative would have been an attack of the mainland. Much more costly in terms of human misery.

    This situation, if permitted (or encouraged) to exacerbate tensions between the U.S. and Russia, could spiral out of control. Candidly, I don't have confidence in this administration's ability to handle this productively because relations between the U.S. and Russia have noticeably deteriorated in the past 6 years. With good reasons (witness the vacillation in the Middle East) America is perceived as lacking clear purpose and tenacity. The issues in the east Ukraine do not reflect well on Russia, and the downing of a civilian Malaysia airliner and two Ukrainian military jet aircraft with Russian-supplied surface-to-air missile technology has magnified the tension, but it has drawn the criticism of other nations as well (Australia, the Netherlands, Great Britain, and others). This is not Putin's proudest moment. What was a developing atmosphere of understanding has deteriorated to criticism and mockery between Presidents Obama and Putin, and that's not productive at all. We're back to Cold War distrust and stand-off. Could it escalate? Yes, it could. Will it spiral into a World War (i.e., mutually assured destruction)…no, it will not. There are other diplomatic, economic and tactical tools to employ before that develops. We live in interesting times, but this will add fuel to a potentially argumentative situation, and an atmosphere of distrust and saber-rattling.

      Max you are way off base and are making it pretty obvious that you believe the Putin propaganda. Russia is becoming imperialistic once again because democracy is an alien concept to a government that wants to control everyone and anything. Get real!

      America is not going to launch nuclear bombs at a nation that also has it's own nuclear bombs to launch back. In order for anything to happen it takes (both) sides to make decisions that lead down a path.

      Hi everyone! Somehow, no one pays attention to the fact that the board did not have stockpiles of food and water. Given the fact that the plane was supposed to fly 8 hours, it is very strange. Furthermore, when the DNR representatives arrived at the
