While the US puts together a coalition to free some towns and Villages from ISIS, The Thieves of Tel Aviv decide to steal some villages for their own

Once again, Netanyahu and his right wing cabal take advantage of the United States while the US deals with problems in the Middle East and Russian aggression in Ukraine. The US cannot unbridle itself fast enough from the strategic liability and our absurd obsession with a rogue apartheid regime in Israel

Right on Script from the Israeli Playbook:

US calls out Israel over decision to expand state land in West Bank
LAST UPDATED: 09/01/2014 00:37

The United States sees Israel's announcement on Sunday of a land appropriation for possible settlement construction in the West Bank as "counterproductive" to peace efforts and urges the Israeli government to reverse the decision, a State Department official said.

"We have long made clear our opposition to continued settlement activity," the US official said. " This announcement, like every other settlement announcement Israel makes, planning step they approve and construction tender they issue is counterproductive to Israel's stated goal of a negotiated two-state solution with the Palestinians."

"We urge the government of Israel to reverse this decision," the official said in Washington.

The response to the Russian assault on Ukraine lies largely with the Europeans - This week will tell

Putin escallates the aggression:

The European View of the Russian Invasion:

The Options:

KIEV, Ukraine -CBS- Ukrainian forces say one of their fighter jets has been shot down by a Russian missile in combat against Russia-backed separatists in easternUkraine.
The development comes as the European Union was poised Saturday to impose new sanctions against Russia and Ukraine's president warned the conflict with Moscow threatens peace and stability for Europe as a whole.A brief statement posted Saturday on the Facebook page for the so-called operation against separatists said the Su-25 was hit on Friday, and that the pilot ejected and was uninjured. The statement said the plane was hit by a missile from a Russian launcher, but did not give more detail.
Petro Poroshenko said before a summit of the EU's 28 leaders that a strong response was needed to the "military aggression and terror" facing his country.
"Thousands of the foreign troops and hundreds of the foreign tanks are now on the territory of Ukraine," Poroshenko told reporters in English. "There is a very high risk not only for peace and stability for Ukraine, but for the whole peace and stability of Europe."
On the ground, fighting continued. The office of the Donetsk mayor reported in a statement on Saturday that at least two people died in an artillery attack on one of Donetsk's neighborhoods. Shelling was reported elsewhere in the city, but there was no immediate word on casualties.

CBS News correspondent Elizabeth Palmer reports from London that pro-Russian rebels have opened a new front in Novoazovsk, near Ukraine's southern border with Russia.
The rebels showed reporters the Ukrainian border guards they'd captured and locked up in a garage. One of them said two of his fellows had been killed in an ambush.
NATO believes Ukrainian rebels are being given Russian military equipment. On Friday, shaky cell phone footage showed a tank suspected to be Russian in the area, and NATO satellite photographs show tanks as well as field artillery and troop carriers.
As for Russian President Vladimir Putin, he's sticking to the government line that if there are Russian soldiers in Ukraine, it's a mistake, Palmer reports.
The border in that area isn't well marked, he told a youth club Friday, and it's easy to get lost.

Plausible Deniability is Gone (No more Russian Bullshit)

Putin says he's not invading Ukraine. Heres a video of Putin's tanks invading Ukraine.
Updated by Max Fisher on August 28, 2014, 2:00 p.m. ET @Max_Fisher max@vox.com

(Notice the Russian T-72BM tank in the convoy- picture of T-72BM below, being used in Chechnya)

On Tuesday, several days after Russian self-propelled artillery moved into eastern Ukraine in what was clearlyhostile invasion that Vladimir Putin insists is not occurring, someone took a video of some very heavy tanks crashing around an eastern Ukrainian town near the rebel-held city of Luhansk. While they look suspiciously like Russian tanks sent as part of the invasion, Moscow and the pro-Russia rebels have all insisted that any heavy equipment was stolen from or abandoned by the Ukrainian military.
But now military analysts have taken a look at the video and say that at least one of the tanks could only come from the Russian military, apparently settling the issue of whether these are in fact Russian military forces.
Joseph Dempsey, an analyst with the International Institute for Strategic Studies, told the BBC that one of the tanks is something called a T-72BM, a modern variant identifiable by its special "Kontakt-5 Explosive Reactive" armor, and one that Russia has not exported but uses heavily in its own military. That is a new development, and one that suggests not just that Russia is invading, but being increasingly brazen about it:

Dempsey told the BBC, "The Soviet-era tanks operated by the separatists have until now represented those that could have been potentially acquired internally within Ukraine, providing a degree of plausible deniability to any suspected third-party supplier." That degree of plausible deniability is now gone.
