What if the Aircraft Carrier Had Never Been Invented? | The National Interest
far the technology could have been pushed, most American punitive bombing expeditions over the past few decades would have been cruise missile barrages, rather like the Bush-Clinton raids of the 1990s. Sometimes those have refocused local potentates’ attention, but they have lacked sustainability. From the sea, that’s what fixed-wing carriers bring. When ISIS was threatening Baghdad last year, and the Iraqi government dawdled in approving American requests for local basing again, a single supercarrier ran the air war. Without American carriers comfortably offshore, Arab allies might have to decid

Ukraine’s New Front Is Europe’s Big Challenge – Foreign Policy
calation in economic pressure on Ukraine. Russia has introduced all manner of sanctions on Ukraine before. But now it is not just a question of restricting Ukrainian exports to Russia, but a concerted effort to harm Ukrainian trade with Europe and the Middle East. This is no small matter because Ukraine exports more to Arab countries than to Russia. Effectively sealing the Kerch Strait is like Denm

Russia-Ukraine Fight Over Narrow Sea Passage Risks Wider War - The New York Times
MOSCOW — Ukraine’s president put his nation on a war footing with Russia on Monday, as tensions over a shared waterway escalated into a crisis that dragged in NATO and the United Nations.
Russia’s seizure a day earlier of three small Ukrainian naval vessels and 23 sailors — including at least three wounded in a shooting by the Russian side — was the first overt armed conflict between the two sides since the beginning days of the conflict in 2014, when Russian special forces occupied Crimea.
The opening of an additional front at sea, even if Ukraine lacks a real navy, introduced an unstable element into what had been a shadowy war. The conflict pitting Ukrainian soldiers against Russian-backed separatists in the breakaway Donbas region, in eastern Ukraine, has sputtered along for almost five years with more than 10,000 people killed.

US hits out at Russia over capture of Ukrainian ships | Financial Times
a’s naval forces were provoked and only captured the Ukrainian ships after they illegally entered its territorial waters near a maritime chokepoint shared by both countries. It warned Kiev and its western partners against inciting further tension.

“We would like to warn the Ukrainian side that the line pursued by Kiev in co-ordination with the US and the EU to provoke a conflict with Russia in the waters of the Azov and Black seas is fraught with serious consequences,” the Russian foreign ministry said in a statement. “The Russian Federation will firmly stop any encroachment on its sovereignty and security.”

Ms Haley was speaking at an emergency meeting called by Russia to discuss the incident. A motion proposed by Moscow to condemn territorial violations by the Ukrainian ships was voted down in the Security Council debate, with China joining Russia in voting in favour.

Mr Poroshenko, who commands a majority in parliament, has rebuffed claims by opposition politicians that martial law could affect presidential elections scheduled for March, where polls suggest he is unlikely to win another term in office.

To dispel such concerns, parliament late on Monday voted to reaffirm that presidential elections would take place on schedule.

Ukraine declares martial law after Russian naval attack
The Ukrainian president said this is not "declaring war" against Russia.
MOSCOW — Ukraine's parliament voted Monday to impose martial law in the country to fight what its president called "growing aggression" from Moscow after a weekend naval confrontation off the disputed Crimean Peninsula in which Russia fired on and seized three Ukrainian vessels amid renewed tensions between the neighbors.
Western leaders and diplomats urged both sides to de-escalate the conflict, and the U.S. blamed Russia for what it called "unlawful conduct" over Sunday's incident in the Black Sea.
