    I Say Market Tanks Next Week - But Where are Pictures of Damaged Russian Military Convoy?

    Now I know Ukraine army supposedly hit the Russian Military Convoy at night so maybe no pictures of damaged vehicles, tanks, etc. But you would think after 12 to 16 hours of day light there would be some factual picture of damage done. If anyone lies in this battle over Ukraine self rule in Russia and Putin, but one has to wonder if we have actual evidence of a Ukraine attack on invading Russian soldiers and equipment. Replies appreciated,

    • If one accepts your premise, then the logical conclusion is that no such convoy existed.

    • Been thinking the same thing. If true, that would have been the lamest 'vanguard' for an invasion that ever was. Whatever you might think of him, is Putin really that stupid? Russia is no match for NATO(aka US), but they are the regional superpower. If they were planning to invade Ukraine, I think they would have done so a little more competently. Russia is no stranger to war, they know how to wage it. 27 million of them paid the ultimate price to defeat the Nachis, just so the Americans and their allies could congratulate themselves endlessly over d-day. The losses that the combined allied forces suffered that day were probably about a 1/2 hour's worth of Russian losses at Stalingrad. Look it up.

      • Zero hedge has story that someone had to have lied in the press w that. Which makes sense when you read it. What I do know is a major bank had a huge short postion on gold and had to get price down for today. So, comes as no surprise that they lied to get some iv out of the market too. Some of these people need to go to jail for breaking the law on a more and more consistant basis. If there is any 'trend' for '14, that has been the biggest one I've seen.

      • True but the odd thing now is Russian govt officials and German govt officials all seem very close. As if there was never an East Germany under Russia's control for decades. Case in point - Gerhard Schröder Germany ex chancellor was photographed a few weeks back giving Putin a big hug on his birthday. Like these two guys are best buddies. Picture made Merkel look like yesterday's child but also told a bigger picture. Germans would rather do business with Russians and let Ukraine fall by the way side.
