WAR DRUMS: U.S. orders families of embassy personnel in Ukraine to evacuate as Russia amasses forces at border

Jan 22nd

Breaking from Fox News:

The State Department has ordered families of U.S. Embassy personnel in Ukraine to begin evacuating the country as soon as Monday, U.S. officials tell Fox News.

Next week, the State Department is also expected to encourage Americans to begin leaving Ukraine by commercial flights, "while those are still available," one official said.

"While those are still available."

That sounds ominous!

Moscow has massed tens of thousands of troops at the border with Ukraine, leading to fears of an invasion.

Certainly seems like Russia is about to invade. What do we do then?

Late Friday night, the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine announced the first shipment of ammunition had arrived as directed by President Biden.

U.S. officials say small arms ammunition constitute the bulk of the 200,000 pounds of what the State Department is calling lethal aid – needed by Ukrainian soldiers on the front lines. U.S. officials also tell Fox that Javelin anti-tank missiles are expected to arrive early next week from the Baltic states and from U.S. military stockpiles.

Advanced Russian fighter jets have now arrived in Belarus, north of Ukraine. The Pentagon is concerned that Ukraine's capital is "now in the crosshairs," another official added.

The U.S. government is planning to move "a ton" of weapons and ammunition into Ukraine in the coming days, officials say.

Welp. Fantastic.

How could things get any worse for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and by extension, America at large?

Gee I dunno – how about a military skirmish with Putin??

Buckle up, folks...
