News - Daily Summary

World: As strife continues in Iraq, the U.S begins evacuation of some embassy personnel. U.S. assets are still being positioned in case they are needed and Iran is pledging support as well. Meanwhile, in Ukraine negotiations over natural gas supplies from Russia to Ukraine have fallen apart. Russia claims it will officially shut off supplies on Monday morning. There are rumors that Russia is re-positioning military units on the border with eastern Ukraine. Maybe now that one of the U.S. carriers that was in the Mediterranean has moved to the Persian Gulf, the Russians feel a bit more secure in making a military move in Eastern Ukraine? Wow, how convenient that Iraq has become hot again. Putin is either very lucky, or a genius. Either way, the U.S. is getting played like a fiddle. I would not be surprised if there are other incidents to occupy the U.S. Navy so that it would not be in position to act if Russia takes action in Eastern Ukraine. The U.S. has been paying a global game of chess. Unfortunately our commander in chief has no idea how to play the game (the other player is a master). Besides the usual crimes and tragedies, there were no other major develops across the world today.

U.S.: It was a calm Fathers Day across the U.S. Besides the usual crimes, tragedies, and pointless trivialities, there were no major developments in the U.S. today.

It was another day in the calm before the coming economic storm.

What do you think?
