"Point of No Return" Warning Issued - One Step Closer To WW3

By Susan Duclos, via All News PipeLine

The rhetoric over the Ukraine and Russia war is heating up on all sides, from Ukraine,  from Putin as well, and the west continues to push harder still with further sanction threats against Russia, all guaranteed to spark a war that the Ukrainian Defense Minister claims will be "the worst conflict since WWII. "

The man that was installed as President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, after the west supported the ouster of the duly elected Ukrainian President, warns that the situation is rapidly approaching the "point of no return," as Tsar Barroso claims Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened "If I want, I’ll take Kiev in two weeks," as other reports indicate Putin is talking about "New Russia" and "statehood" for Eastern Ukraine.

On the other side of the coin, while obama plays golf, Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel is threatening Russia with more sanctions, stating that "Russia is practically in the war against Europe," and European Council President Herman Van Rompuy, is threatening to take "further significant steps," against Russia.

Now Russia is playing the "trump card," according to Business Insider, by reminding them all that "Winter is coming."

"According to the U.S. Energy Information Agency, [Ukraine's] primary energy consumption is fueled by natural gas (40%) and coal (28%)," Gurbanov writes in The Duke Chronicle. "With winter coming to Ukraine in less than four months and the coal mines located in the easternmost part of the country ravaged by conflict, Ukrainians will freeze in their homes as their gas supplies from Russia are depleted. Therefore, if the rebels fail to achieve their goal, Gazprom, Russia’s energy giant, will help Putin to win the war eventually."

That isn't the only warning Russia has issued as he also invokes the WW3 warning, likening the situation in Ukraine to WW3 and stating outright "Thank God, I think no one is thinking of unleashing a large-scale conflict with Russia. I want to remind you that Russia is one of the leading nuclear powers."
