Russian media reporting that retired US army Lieutenant General Ben Hodges has said that Russia should be made to feel 'uncomfortable' in the Black Sea and that Ukraine, Georgia, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey and Moldova should all unite against Russia in the region.

World War 3 anyone?

Only thing worse than U.S sanctions (see Syria) would be radioactive contamination... unless you're fungi, then you're happening!

Olive oil from Spain? OK, well, if it's not radioactive that would be an attribute in its favour wouldn't it?
