    Default Ukraine attacks column of "Armored Russian vehicles"

    Ukraine Says Russian Armored Vehicles Destroyed

    Ukrainian artillery destroyed a large part of a column of armored vehicles that had been seen entering Ukraine from Russia, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Friday.

    Ukraine, backed by Western capitals, has for weeks accused Russia of sending men and heavy weapons to pro-Russia rebels that hold several towns and cities in Ukraine's east.

    Late Thursday, reporters from two British newspapers said they had witnessed a column of around 20 vehicles crossing the border in an area outside the control of Ukrainian authorities.

    The reported episode was near where Russian trucks loaded with what Moscow says are relief supplies destined for eastern Ukraine had stopped for the night, adding to fears that the convoy was a prelude to a Russian military intervention. Russia has denied sending men and weapons into eastern Ukraine.
    What are the odds the Ukraine military just shelled the relief convoy?

    Note the part I underlined. Ukraine customs already inspected the convoy. So what's with the "Moscow says". No bias here.

    Personally I can't believe the Russians actually invaded at this point. Ukraine and the West, especially the US, have become bubbling buffoons over the situation in Ukraine. I'm sure Putin is smart enough and patient enough to know that if he just sits back the West will screw-up on their own accord with out any help from him.

    Which quite frankly, I think they just did.

    However unlike shredded fragments of a passenger jet; the evidence in this event will be black and white:
    A) Russia was just caught invading Ukraine and we verge on WW3
    B) Ukraine military is incompetent, the West are arrogant fools and this will wind down with a parade of war crimes against Ukraine.

    With all we have seen so far I'm leaning towards B

    Let the fiasco of social media reconnaissance begin.
