MH17 Perception Deception: Truth 0% Spin 100%

In the 21st century the US may be incapable of winning wars or even pursuing its own national interest but the media manipulation around the shoot-down of MH17 proves it is reaching new heights (or depths) in the art of perception management.

This article, by Ray McGovern originally appeared at Consortium News. The author is a retired CIA analyst of 27 years. He served as chief of the Soviet Foreign Policy Branch, and prepared and personally conducted early morning briefings of the President’s Daily Brief.

During a recent interview, I was asked to express my conclusions about the July 17, 2014 shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine, prompting me to take another hard look at Official Washington’s dubious claims – pointing the finger of blame at eastern Ukrainian rebels and Moscow – based on shaky evidence regarding who was responsible for this terrible tragedy.

Unlike serious professional investigative reporters, intelligence analysts often are required by policymakers to reach rapid judgments without the twin luxuries of enough time and conclusive evidence. Having spent almost 30 years in the business of intelligence analysis, I have faced that uncomfortable challenge more times than I wish to remember.

So, I know what it feels like to confront issues of considerable consequence like the shoot-down of MH-17 and the killing of 298 passengers and crew amid intense pressure to choreograph the judgments to the propagandistic music favored by senior officials who want the U.S. “enemy” – in this case, nuclear-armed Russia and its Western-demonized President Vladimir Putin – to somehow be responsible. In such situations, the easiest and safest (career-wise) move is to twirl your analysis to the preferred tune or at least sit this jig out.

But the trust-us-it-was-Putin marathon dance has now run for 13 months – and it’s getting tiresome to hear the P.R. people in the office of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper still claiming that the U.S. intelligence community has not revised or updated its analysis of the incident since July 22, 2014, just five days after the crash.

Back then, Clapper’s office, trying to back up Secretary of State John Kerry’s anti-Russian rush to judgment, cited very sketchy evidence – in both senses of the word – drawn heavily from “social media” accounts. Obviously, the high-priced and high-caliber U.S. intelligence community has learned much more about this very sensitive case since that time, but the administration won’t tell the American people and the world. The DNI’s office still refers inquiring reporters back to the outdated report from more than a year ago.

None of this behavior would make much sense if the later U.S. intelligence data supported the hasty finger-pointing toward Putin and the rebels. If more solid and persuasive intelligence corroborated those initial assumptions, you’d think U.S. government officials would be falling over themselves to leak the evidence and declare “we told you so.” And the DNI office’s claim that it doesn’t want to prejudice the MH-17 investigation doesn’t hold water either – since the initial rush to judgment did exactly that.

So, despite the discomfort attached to making judgments with little reliable evidence – and at the risk of sounding like former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld – it seems high time to address what we know, what we don’t know, and why it may be that we don’t know what we don’t know.

Those caveats notwithstanding I would say it is a safe bet that the hard technical intelligence evidence upon which professional intelligence analysts prefer to rely does not support Secretary of State Kerry’s unseemly rush to judgment in blaming the Russian side just three days after the shoot-down.

MH17 Investigation: Former Pilots and BUK missile maker speak.

An interim report on the official investigation into the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 disaster, published in September 2014 said the crash was a result of structural damage caused by a large number of high-energy objects that struck the Boeing from the outside. However, it did not conclude what the objects were, where they came from, or who was responsible.

The Kiev government and most of Western news media have unequivocally blamed eastern Ukraine militias and Russia. The Russian Defense Ministry shared radar data pointing to other possibilities in July 2015 – including an attack by a Ukrainian Sukhoi-25 fighter jet, which was said to have been tracking the passenger plane.

While an official international investigation into the crash has been dragging on for nine months, the debate into the cause of the tragedy has been once again reignited by recent comments from the chief designer of the SU-25.

from Russia Today

Kiev-born Soviet and Russian aircraft designer Vladimir Babak said on Monday that the SU-25 jet – which was spotted tracking the MH17 Boeing at the moment it crashed down – did not have the capability to shoot down a passenger plane. He said the fighter jet could have successfully attacked the Boeing at an altitude of 3,000-4,000 meters, but not at the plane’s altitude of 10,500 meters. He added that air-to-air missiles would have only damaged the Boeing – not completely destroyed it while still in the air.

However, several former top officials and SU-25 pilots disagree with Babak.

Based on the analysis of the plane debris and the nature of the damage, there is a high probability the plane was stuck by an air-to-air missile and an aircraft gun, Claims that the passenger plane was downed by a surface-to-air Buk missile cannot be supported, as the nature of the damage from the missiles is different,” Lieutenant General Aleksandr Maslov, former deputy chief of the Russian Air Defence and Land Forces said.

Disputes about the operational capabilities of the SU-25 jet stem from the Russian definition of the aircraft’s service ceiling – which is not the same as its absolute ceiling, as defined by the US military, Veterans Today senior editor Gordon Duff commented.

“The claimed service ceiling is based on the oxygen supply in the aircraft. Now, there is a claim that this plane [SU-25] will only work to 22,000 feet. At the end of World War II, a German ME-262 would fly at 40,000 feet, a P-51 Mustang propeller plane flew at 44,000 feet. The SU-25 was developed as an analogue of the A-10 Thunderbolt, an American attack plane. The planes have almost identical performance, except that the SU-25 is faster and more powerful. The A-10 Thunderbolt has a service ceiling of 45,000 feet. The US estimates the absolute ceiling, which is a different term,” Duff explained.

Duff said one cannot be entirely sure the detected fighter jet was an SU-25 at all, as modern radar spoofing counter-measures – such as those designed by BAE Systems and employed by NATO – are able to mask any other aircraft, be it an SU-27 or F-15, as another plane.

Duff also said he has discussed the possibility of the MH17 flight having been hit by a ground-to-air missile with experts from the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), the FBI, the Air Line Pilots Association, as well as air traffic and air operational officers – and they all agreed that no proof of anti-aircraft missile use has been provided to the public.

It is highly unlikely that the launch of such a missile would have gone unnoticed in the area, Duff stressed, adding that the trail left by the rocket in the air would have been witnessed and filmed by “thousands.”

“There is no reliable information supporting that it was a Buk missile fired by anyone,” he added. The known estimate for the absolute ceiling of the SU-25 is 52,000 feet (15.8km), he added.

US Puppet In Kiev Restarts War With Donbass Separatists

Back in February 2014, Victoria Nuland, the US Diplomat (ahem), whose famous open mic. moment revealed that once again the ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ had been right and the USA was behind the coup d’etat that deposed a corrupt, but democratically elected government and installed the neo fascist puppet government in Kiev, selected Arseniy Yatsenyuk as the Prime Minister of Ukraine. On Wednesday, March 18th, Yatsenyuk told his colleagues, “Our goal is to regain control of Donetsk and Lugansk.” With those words the Ukrainian Prime Minister tore up the Minsk agreement brokerd by German chancellor Merkel and France’s President Hollande and restarted Obama’s proxy war and the genocide of ethic Russians in Ukraine.

Yatsenyuk further announced: “Adequate financial resources are available,” to retake Donbass.”

Those “resources” come largely from the IMF, and from the United States, all with loans to the bankrupt Ukrainian Government. So that the investors will be paid the principal plus the extremely high interest on these junk-loans that are backed by their governments, Western taxpayers will ultimately be, basically, donating to Franklin Templeton, and to George Soros, and to the other financiers who are buying the Ukrainian Government bonds that will fiance the murder of thousands of ethic Russians in east Ukraine. Their blood will be on the hands of We The People though nobody asked us is we had anything against them.

Donetsk and Lugansk are the two districts comprising Donbass, the self-proclaimed independent region of Ukraine, which now calls itself “The People’s Republic” and sometimes “Novorossiya,” and which rejects the coup and its coup-imposed Government.

That Government of Ukraine is run by Yatsenyuk and the people whom he selected. Ukraine also has a President, who is elected by voters in the northwest of Ukraine, where the coup-government is accepted; but, since the coup, the Government has actually been run by Prime Minister Yatsenyuk, who is entirely dependent upon the United States Government and its subordinates (such as the IMF and NATO, in both of which the U.S. has veto-power) in order to obtain the financial and military support necessary to keep him in office.

Democracy is dead, the American government is determined to start an east west war. How much longer Russia and China will continue their policy of restraint in the face of constant American provocation is anybody’s guess.

Intel: in two or three weeks Kiev is expected to start a massive new offensive on Donbass. False flags, provocations and terrorist acts to sabotage, or make more difficult, the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory (WWII Victory Day) celebration in Russia on May 9th are also possible. Since Nemtsov murder near Kremlin, Russians are on full alert; therefore, I expect it won’t be possible in Moscow and/or the main Russian cities. But Ukraine and Donbass are a different story.

World War Three? Kiev Reinvades Donbass, Deliberate Provocation Trashed Minsk Agreement
When America wants to provoke Russia it uses proxies, a rabble in Libya, Islamic fundamentalists in Syria and Iraq and neo – Nazi thugs in Ukraine. So far Russia has resisted the urge to kick Obama in the balls, but sooner or later the Russia – China – Iran alliance will respond.

According to the expert of the Russian Military Sciences Academy Vladimir Prokhvatilov (null, confirmed by multiple intelligence sources in Donbass and Ukraine, Kiev is expected to start a new massive offensive on Donbass in order to surround and cut Donetsk off Lugansk, with simultaneous attack on Lugansk. We will recall that a similar recent attempt resulted in the Debaltsevo cauldron, where thousands of Ukrainian troops perished. This time, the result will be the same, but it appears Kiev doesn’t care about the result, it only cares about making the life of the Donbass people as difficult as possible, and about sabotaging Russian holidays.

Kiev has officially broken the Minsk agreements. Instead of pulling its heavy artillery away from the front lines in oder to create a demilitarized zone, Kiev is amassing heavy artillery, tanks and troops.

It is believed that they will attack during the sacred Orthodox Holiday – Pascha (Easter). Previous mass bombings of DNR and LNR, as well as mass attacks by Kiev on both republics, were all scheduled during an important holiday, in order to spoil people’s celebration. This year, Pascha is celebrated on April 12.

China Warns U.S. to Stop Its Ukrainian Proxy War Against Russia

It was the biggest news story of last weekend but because it was not favourable to the pro Obama, pro Corporate global dictatorship narrative that is imposed in us by mainstream media, there was not a mention of it in mainstream media.

So where did Little Nicky find it? On a nutty right wing site? No.
On a crazy conspiracy theory site like Before Its News? No.
On David Icke’s site? No

Well not that either …

So whas it on a respected and reliable centre – right leaning news feed like Reuters. Coooooooolllllllllddddddd Be.

OK, that was just for people who remember Hong Kong Fooey. But yes, Reuters did carry a news item about China wasrning the USA to stop killing Ukranians in the desperate efforts to provoke the Russians into starting a shooting war.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/02/27/us-china-ukraine-idUSKBN0LV0H120150227

A much-ignored huge news report from Reuters on Friday, February 27th, was headlined “Chinese diplomat tells West to consider Russia’s security concerns over Ukraine

China’s Ambassador to Belgium said that the “nature and root cause” of the Ukrainian conflict is “the West,” (Little Nicky and his friends at The Daily Stirrer told you that a year ago of course, everybody who wasn’t brain dead knows the Ukrainian revolution was engineered and backed by the USA, EU and NATO) The ambassador also warned that “The West should abandon the zero-sum mentality, and take the real security concerns of Russia into consideration.”

By “real security concerns,” the Chinese are clearly referring to NATO’s expansion right up to Russia’s border, and America’s surrounding Russia with U.S. military bases, now increasingly including the most strategic of Russia’s bordering countries: Ukraine.

In other words, this diplomat says: “the West” has a “zero-sum” attitude toward Russia, instead of seeking to move forward with an approach in which neither side among the nuclear superpowers benefits at the other’s expense — the entire world moves forward together.

This is a direct criticism of Barack Obama, and of all of the pro-Obama, anti-Putin, EU leaders.

It’s also an implicit repudiation of Obama’s having repeatedly referred to the U.S. as “the one indispensable nation.” (Another example of that phrase is here.) Obama keeps saying: every other nation, except the U.S., is “dispensable.” He clearly thinks that Russia is.

That’s not merely an insult: it’s an act of provocation; it is virtually asking for a fight. And all for what? For whose geopolitical advantage? Cui bono?

This criticism of the aggressive nationalist Obama does not come from China’s top leadership, but it would not have come at all if they had not approved of it in advance.

China thus now tells Obama: Stop it. Stop it in word, and in deed.

Implicitly, China is also telling Obama: China is not dispensable, either. Don’t fuck with us. In fact don’t fuck with anybody without our permission.

Like Russia, China does not give a damn about American exceptionalism or the delusional American worldview. The entire mentality, which Obama embodies, is not just callous and insulting; it’s dangerous.

Like President G.W. Bush, Obama is increasingly an embarassment to his country.

BBC Reporter Almost Killed by Ukrainian Shell While Accusing Rebels of Shelling

Now who was it among my readers was about six months ago accused be of taking the side of evil against the good guys in Ukraine, when I (rightly as it turned out although it will never be officially admitted) wrote that the group most likely to have shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was the Ukrainian Government in Kiev, the neo – fascist government installed after the USA / NATO / EU coup d’etat deposed the DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED government.

I was further accused of being in love with Vladimir Putin and Nigel Farage (now come on, I might have been a prodigious shagger in my youth but I had taste) and supporting war, being a right wing nut job and someone who goes to a lot of tea parties (I never worked that one out).

All this from people on the part of the political spectrum who like to assume they have a monopoly in intelligence and reason.

Was I wrong to present the case of the pro – Russian separatists in Ukraine against the Obama backed Nazi thugs. Anyone who has followed the progress of Kiev’s genocide campaign against ethnic Russians in Ukraine will not think so, but those who believe the globalist propaganda pumped out by mainstream media might still have trouble believing the USA is the real bad guy. This could help them however …

BBC Reporter Almost Killed by Ukrainian Shell While Accusing Rebels of Shelling

In one more incredibly biased TV report from the Donetsk airport, a BBC journalist started accusing Donetsk self defense forces of breaking the ceasefire while almost getting killed by a Ukrainian “peace-loving” sticking-to-ceasefire shell.

First, Ian Pannell, international BBC corespondent, implicitly accuses rebels of a “scorched earth policy”. (Why would they do that when they’re winning?)

Than in an almost surreal moment while saying that artillery fire “appears” to be mostly “outgoing”, there’s a clear and visible evidence of incoming Ukrainian fire, resulting in an dangerous explosion extremely close to and directly behind him.

Fortunately enough “outgoing fire” hasn’t landed on his head.

It is even more unbelievable that only moments after surviving Ukrainian shelling, the BBC reporter, instead of stating the obvious—that they were almost killed by Ukrainian shelling—has the audacity to state ludicrous claims that rebels are shelling themselves; thus implicitly backing up Ukrainian point of view.

So it seems that “Russian terrorists” are still shelling themselves? We remember Lugansk and pro-Ukrainian media claims that a “terrorist missile” hit an air-conditioner in the administration building, thus killing themselves; or the Odessa massacre where “Russian terrorists” were throwing Molotov cocktails from the rooftop and burned themselves alive.

To certain extent, we feel compassion with BBC employees since they need to stick to the official Westminster propaganda line (“It’s always Russia’s fault”) or risk being demoted or losing their jobs.

If you want to go up the career ladder, self-imposed censorship is a must for every journalist working in the Western mainstream media.

US And Ukraine Governments Try To Scupper Minsk Pease Deal

My source for this story will surprise the war loving, death cult worshipping loonies who think they are reasonable left wing progressives. Such people are among that minority who think big government and authoritarianism are something do do with ‘the left’ (because the left is more cuddly?

So when they encounter a truth seeker whose narrative strays off the big govertnment, globalism, multiculturalism narrative, then without thinking they dismiss that person as a right wing nut job.

Reality is a bit more complicated however, so here, from The World Socialist Web Site is the real story on what is happening in Ukraine, and it confirms once again that the USA led by that hopey-changey, peacemaker and joy bringer The Obamessiah, Barack Obama, that facilitated the war in Ukraine by pushing a neo fascist right wing government into power for the purpose of provoking Russia into acts of aggression.

Stratfor Chief: Ukraine Coup Plotted by US Over Russian Stance on Syria

The United States plotted the coup which took place in Ukraine in February 2014 in response to Russia’s policy in Syria, says George Friedman, the founder and CEO of Stratfor, known as “Shadow CIA”.

The United States is behind the February coup in Kiev, which came in response to Russia’s stance on Syria, said George Friedman, the founder and CEO of Stratfor, a global intelligence company.

Russia has repeatedly said that the coup in Kiev was organized by the US, Friedman told Kommersant newspaper. Indeed, it was the most overt coup in history, the political analyst stressed.

The United States decided to act following Russia’s successes in the Middle East, a key region for the US. Americans saw that Russians could influence what was happening in the Middle East, Friedman said. Russians are one of the many challenges in the region that the US faces, he stated. The US thought Russia’s activities were an attempt to harm Washington, the political analyst told the newspaper, adding that events in Ukraine should be viewed in this context.

MH17 – Evidence mounts for jet fighter involvement

from 4 bit News:

Which camp are you in? Was it the Russians or the Ukrainians? New radar data indicating that military aircraft were in the air near Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 when it crashed in eastern Ukraine on July 17 has been released by a Russian air safety consultancy. The consultancy provided a snapshot representing the readings taken by a radar station located in Russia’s Rostov, near the Ukrainian border, shortly before and about 20 minutes after the MH17 crash.
According to Sergey Melnichenko, CEO of Aviation Safety consultancy, there were one or two warplanes in the air close to the Malaysian airliner.

READ ALL:

And of course we must remind all those who shouted “It was Putin wot done it,” that so far we have not seen a single shed of evidence to back up Barack Obama’s claim to ‘conclusive evidence’ that the Malaysia Airlines Boeing was brought down by pro Russia separatists with Russian military assistance. Good thing we didn’t go to war over the jug eared jihadists ludicrous allegations isn’t it?

Mainsteeam Media Suppressing News About Fligh MH17 Inquiry

Downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 News Developments Being Suppress By Mainstream Media.

Given the tarnished reputation of mainstream media after decades of its reporting only news favourable to establishment political and corporate interests, it ought not to surprise anybody that television and print news organisations have been suppressing news of developments in the quest to discover the truth about downed Malaysia Airlines Beoing 777, Flight MH17.

Read The Daily Stirrer post on this story:
Downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 News Developments Being Suppress By Mainstream Media.

Back in August the excellent Washington’s Blog reported a whistleblower leaking detains of a five nation conspiracy to make sure the truth about the shooting down of flight MH17 never emerged. Now why would they do that unless they knew the information would be damaging to US / EU leaders and their neo Nazi stooges in Kiev.

Here’s a snippet from that Washington’s Blog report:

Regarding what caused the downing of the Malaysian airliner MH-17 in Ukraine on July 17th, the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN, reported in a brief Russian-language news story on August 12th, that four days earlier (August 8th) a representative of that nation’s Prosecutor General office, Yuri Boychenko, had said that (as auto-translated by google), “the results [of the investigation] will be announced upon completion of the investigation and with the consent of all the parties who signed the corresponding agreement.”

This UNIAN report said that, “As part of the four-party agreement signed on August 8 between Ukraine, the Netherlands, Belgium and Australia [all of which nations are allies of the United States and are cooperating with its new Cold War against Russia], information on the investigation into the disaster Malaysian ‘Boeing-777’ will not be disclosed.” In other words: the official ‘investigation’ is being carried out by four nations that, as U.S. allies, are hostile toward Russia.

One of those four nations, Ukraine, is not only a prime suspect in possibly having shot this airliner down, but is currently waging a hot war to ethnically-cleanse the pro-Russian population out of southeastern Ukraine; and the initial ‘news’ reports in Western ‘news’ media regarding the downing of MH-17 had said that this airliner was probably downed by the local rebels there, who were trying to shoot down the Ukrainian Government’s bombers that are constantly bombing them.

Some Western ‘news’ reports even speculated that perhaps Russia itself had shot this airliner down. If the UNIAN news-report is correct, then there is no way that the ‘investigation’ will be able to be released to the public if it indicates that the Ukrainian Government (which, according to that news-report has veto power over the making-public of the study’s findings) is blamed for having shot the airliner down.

Russia along with three quarters of the world, is isolated

The latest EU sanctions announced today after last weeks NATO summit have left Russia increasingly isolated in the world according to mainstream media reports of the response from western governments.

Now I know Professor Want-War is likely to come along and say I’m Putin’s best mate if I publish a realistic view of the situation rather that the latest warmongering propaganda from The White House. But as I squash him like I’d squash a cockroach every time he shows up (Hey Prof, where’s that compelling evidence that pro Russian rebels shot down that aircraft over Ukraine. I see the report could not identify who was responsible; this report tells us nothing at all – as those of us with more brain cells than testicles knew it would) maybe he will not risk a comment – Couldn’t resist winding him up over that

As Zero Hedge commented

While the West continues to press the “Russia is increasingly isolated” meme, it appears – as has been noted (ironically) previously, that Vladimir Putin is finding plenty of friends… most notably China and Iran. While threats of ‘asymmetric’ retaliation over European sanctions may have been enough to worry Europe’s leaders, the slew of news overnight regarding increased cooperation between China and Russia is likely more damaging to Western strategy (and egos).

So let’s have a look at the propaganda claim that Russia is isolated in the world. Someone has done a nice infographic showing in in blue those nations that are in the world and supporting sanctions, the black areas are the countries covering three quarters of the plante’s inhabitable area that are not in the world but still trading fully with Russia, and just to remind us how big Russia actually is, they are in Green.

Foley Beheading Outrage Staged Say Experts

It’s ironic in view of the fact that so many recent Little Nicky Machiavelli and Boggart Blog post centering on the story of Malaysia Airlines flight mh17, that the two subsequent lead stories in world news, the starving of the Yazidi n Iraq by ISIS rebels and the beheading of American journalist Michael Foley have turned out to be not quite what the mainstream media reported.

What has held the attention of Little Nicky about the MH17 saga was not so much the atrocity itself as the determination of one particular blogger (and his imaginary friends) at this site to deny the authenticity of any evidence suggesting the attack was a false flag staged by the Kiev government in order to give US rent-boy President and Coke-addict-In-Chief an excuse to start a shooting war with Russia, while simultaneously offering as evidence to support his “It were Putin wot done it,” narrative the explanation that “our side don’t tell lies’.

Even the CIA have refused to back Obama’s version of events and the latest leak from the top secret cover – up investigation of the MH17 disaster is even more shocking. but I will deal with that elsewhere.

Over the weekend as hysteria increased over the alleged beheading of Michael Foley the first rumours that the event may have been staged were met with the inevitable cries of ‘conspiracy theory’.

I did not watch the video so I can’t say if the video looked like amateur dramatics or not. In these cases I reserve judgement (as I did in the case of the downed Boeing 777 – and I’ve lost count of the time I’ve explained to the want-war blogger that disbelieving the Americans does not imply that one believes the Russians.)

In the case of the jounalist, obviously neither I not anybody else can say if he is still alive but perhaps a prisoner, was killed in crossfire, was captured and executed in a less barbaric way or if the whole thing is a fabrication. All I know is this time the cries of ‘conspiracy theory’ hve quickly evaporated to be replaced by claims of fakery such as the one reported in The Times.

What we should remember is that while western leaders were prepared to accept at face value the beheading story because it suited their purpose, they were very eager to accept the equally dodgy narrative from the US / EU backed neo-nazi junta in Kiev because the USA is set on dragging its allies into a war with Russia and China.

That ‘our’ side are just as evil as ‘the dark side’ is too shocking for the leftie screechers to get their little heads round.

… and goes on to point out the obvious flaws and errors in the video posted online.

The problem many people have of course is that they are so afraid of learning that western governments are really no different from those governments we have been told for decades are our enemies, they must now keep thesmselves in complete denial of reality.

MH17: More evidence points to Kiev / Washington False Flag

Last week Little Nicky relayed reports (yes, relayed; in spite of what some authoritarians would have you believe, I don’t make this stuff up, it’s all reported) accounts of two German aviation experts who testified that their examination of photographs showing wreckage from around the cockpit area of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 shot down over Ukraine were consistent with heavy calibre machine gun fire, which suggested the plane had been shot down by fighter jets or as one suggested by a type of air to air missile which would cause similar damage.

sukhoi su27 jet fighter
An SU27 Jet Fighter (wikimedia commons)

Nobody had complete information at the time but it had been reported (erroniously as it turns out) that the Ukrainian Air Force had two Russian built SU25 fighters shadowing flight MH17.

A a visitor signed in as “Jim” commented rather triumphantly (which made me suspect Jim could be a member of this community who has tried to challenge me on this issue before and been comprehensively twatted) that the SU25 fighter is a low altitude aircraft designed for ground support operations and was not capable of flying alongside the Boeing which was cruising at 33,000 feet.

Correct. But the triumphalism was misplaced. The reports of the German experts triggered a wave of investigation into the version of events published by the FUKUS axis sponsored government in Kiev. This quickly revealed that the Ukraine Military Air Force also has SU27 fighters (nicknamed by NATO air forces “the flanker” – hmmmm. The SU27 is built by the same maker and has a service ceiling of over 60,000 feet.

So far Kiev is denying that any of their warplanes were airborne at the time over east Ukraine, but eye witnesses and technological data testify that flight MH17 was being flanked by two smaller aircraft.

The problem people like Jim, who desperately want to believe the Americans are the good guys, have in dealing with this kind of incident it they find it all too easy to persuade themselves to believe the narrative constructed in the first propaganda releases. These accounts are the ones published by sensationalist tabloids and swallowed by many people. Which is fine unless those people then try to pass themselves off as authorities on the subject.

The more level headed will of course be aware that in a case like this it can be weeks, even months before we start to get anywhere near the truth. And so we wait to see what emerges, and consider every piece of evidence and every opinion from every angle.

There is still no evidence that points to who actually shot down Flight MH17 (the “compelling evidence” Barack Obama claimed to have turned out to be nothing more than social media chatter) but whereas the shills for war have as yet produced nothing of substance, those who suspect a false flag as justification for war are being well served with reports from various sources.

You can read a full and unbiased analysis (none of the “President Obama likes gays so that proves the Russians are responsible,” left wing bullshit) titled “Systematically Reconstructing the Shoot-Down of the Malaysian Airliner: The Guilt Is Clear and Damning” with plenty of links to authoritative sources, or alternatively take a look at this story from Malaysia newspaper and online news site New Straits Times: MH17: Pockmarks look like from very, very heavy machine gun fire, says first OSCE monitor on-scene

An interesting snippet from that story tells us:

In a damning report dated Aug 3, headlined “Flight 17 Shoot-Down Scenario Shifts”, Associated Press reporter Robert Parry said “some US intelligence sources had concluded that the rebels and Russia were likely not at fault and that it appears Ukrainian government forces were to blame”.

Remember, consider every piece of evidence and all opinions from every angle. And don’t be impressed just because somebody waves a PhD at you and says he’s a scientist. I’ve met many scientists in my career and outside their very narrow field of expertise (which is mostly confined to theory) most of them were CHIMPS (Completely Hopeless In Most Practical Situations)

The Kill Team – more evidence of Washington’s love of war

This is another post in my ongoing campaign to make idiot lefties wake up to the fact that their messiah, the chosen one, the Rent – Boy President Barack Hussein Obama is actually a more right – wing president than his predecessor George W Bush and is more in love with war, genocide and mass murder than any leader since Genghis Khan.

Not that I am suggesting he is any worse than our current crop of European leaders, Baphomet Merkel, Asmodius Hollande and Moloch Cameron. They are all insane …

The Kill Team: The murderous reality of the US war in Afghanistan

from RINF

The constant pressure to kill or be killed. It is impossible not to get into the insanity of it,” explains US army Corporal Jeremy Morlock in a new documentary about a group of American soldiers nicknamed the “Kill Team.”

The moniker, applied by the media to members of an army unit who committed war crimes in Afghanistan, is also the title of the film by US documentarian Dan Krauss.

The platoon came from the Fifth Stryker Brigade, Second Infantry Division, based at Lewis-McChord Army Base near Seattle, Washington. The filmmakers focus on Specialist Adam Winfield, who was 17 at the time he joined the army. Deployed to Afghanistan in July 2009, Winfield was contacting his father Chris by February of the next year about atrocities being committed by members of his unit, whose ringleader and highest-ranking member was Staff Sergeant Calvin Gibbs.

According to the film’s production notes, Krauss came upon an April 27, 2011, story in the New York Times (“A Beast in the Heart of Every Fighting Man” by Luke Mogelson) that described Winfield as both a whistleblower and a murder suspect. The article claimed the designation “Kill Team” came from a leaked video interview in which Winfield told an army special agent that Gibbs “thought I was weak and I’m not good enough to be on his quote-unquote ‘kill team.’”

In a four-month period in 2010, the “Kill Team” carried out three murders of Afghan civilians for sport and kept finger and leg bones, a tooth and a skull as grisly trophies in one of the most widely publicized cases of American criminality in Afghanistan.

And don’t forget everyone, this is exactly the kind of thing the Rent – Boy President has already tried to spread to Syria, take back to Iraq and is currently trying to kick off in Ukraine. We should resist all calls to war and we should be very sceptical of all propaganda coming out of Washington about atrocities that must be avenged by full scale military intervention.

And we should be especially sceptical of the bletherings of neo Nazis who style themselves left wing in support of this war mongering propaganda. People who are truly left wing (e.g. anarchists like myself) are anti war. Those who have been consistently mad for war (e.g. the ‘scientist’ who accuses me of being a right wing extremist because of my scepticism about Obama’s attempts to justify a war against Russia) might be socialists, but remember, Hitler’s political movement was called The German National socialist Workers’ Party.

Flight MH17 – This Is Very Interesting

Found a great comment is a thread at The Daily Telegraph under a totally nutty article by a writer called Con Coughlin. In the case of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 Coughlin slags off Putin as a pathological liar (wrong, Putin is a Russian leader who likes to remind us that the rest of the world plays by different rules to those the wussy west would like to impose on them.

On top of that Coughlin seem to think that anything uttered by the war criminal and mass murderer, former rent boy, cocaine addict and wannabe Emperor Obama mudt be gospel truth even though the man has been caught out in more lies than Pinocchio.

Take a look at the article if you are feeling masochistic.

Here’s what GreatBrithole had to say

The video above asks the question, ‘who shot down MH17?’ If you’re interested in the answer to that you might want to view this video –

It’s important to notice that it was uploaded on June (not July) the 18th – a month ago.

Click the fourth icon from the right (captions) and set it to show English captions, if it doesn’t already. Then fast forward to 1.06. Or view the transcript by clicking the transcript icon further down, near the video description.

Here’s the important part of the transcript (spelling errors included) –

‘Terrible things are happening. For example an incident that happened recently. Passanger plane was flying by. And Ukrainian attack aircraft hid behind it. Than he lowered his altitude a bit and droped bombs on residential sector of Semenovka town. Than he regained the altitude and hid behind the passanger plane again. Than he left. They wanted to provoke the militia to shoot at the passenger plane. There would be a global catastrophe. Civilians would have died. Than they would say that terrorists here did it. There are no terrorists here.’

It’s worth considering that it could be possible that the person who uploaded this video has tampered with the transcript yesterday/recently, or updated it somehow – I don’t speak Ukrainian so I can’t verify if the words match the transcript and I don’t know if youtube change the upload date if the details are updated, although this page suggests that it’s not easy to change video details without youtube classing it as a different, new upload –

https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/58101?hl=en

But regardless, it’s interesting.

Now we don’t know if that is true or not but it shows the folly of Con Coughlin and many others in mainstream media who is every situation divide the players into “white hats” and “black hats”.

There are many ways of looking at everything and the sooner we try to understand that Russians, Arabs, Chinese and Africans have a very different mindset from westerners and thus view things from a different perspective, we will continue to screw up foreign relations.

Sensational Break From Official Lies – German Aviation Expert Says MH17 Brought Down By Air To Air Missile


Whatever War Crimes Obama Accuses Russia Of You Can Bet America Has done It First.

World policitical leaders and media sycophants are lining up to condemn Russia for the dowing on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine. Here are a few snippets from our coverage:

In Case You Though We’d Forgotten Ukraine

Airstrike wipes out Ukraine Apartment Block Killing 11 Civilians

An airstrike in eastern Ukraine sent an apartment building crumpling to the ground Tuesday, killing at least 11 people and adding to the steadily mounting civilian death toll from the fighting between government forces and pro-Russian insurgents.

Rebels pinned the attack on the Ukrainian air force. The government swiftly denied blame but was not immediately able to offer an alternative explanation.

The bombing in the rebel-held town of Snizhne demonstrated how airstrikes and heavy rocket fire are becoming increasingly common as the conflict drags into its fourth month. The attack comes one day after a Ukrainian military transport plane was shot down in disputed circumstances.

The devastation in Snizhne bore signs of a strike by several missiles and left only a mountain of smoking debris. The four-story apartment block appeared to have been hit in two separate spots, causing the collapse of several tiers. A nearby house was also destroyed.

Resident Igor Chernetsov lost his wife in the attack. “I heard an explosion, and suddenly I was thrown out of the apartment, out of the fourth floor,” said Chernetsov, his head swathed in a bandage. “I woke up covered in dust and had no idea what had happened.”

Health officials in the Donetsk region, which includes Snizhne, provided the number of dead. Rescue workers pulled a small child with broken legs alive from the rubble as grieving residents sifted for belongings. An Associated Press reporter counted six large impact craters.

Putin: US Backed the Coup That Now Threatens Civil War in Ukraine

from Intellihub

Ahead of contentious nationwide elections in Ukraine this weekend designed to pave the way for a new government in the politically fractured country, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday had strong words for western nations, including the United States, who he says backed the coup d’etat that has put the nation on the edge of all out civil war.

In his remarks Friday, Putin said that Russia would back the results of the vote, but cautioned the Obama administration on its continued mishandling of the crisis, including its failure to honor diplomatic efforts and an overtly-biased relationship with the individuals and parties in Kiev who overthrew the elected government of President Viktor Yanukovich earlier this year.

Russia and Ukraine closer to all-out war. US Military Industrial Complex Anticipate All Out Profit

Russia and Ukraine inched closer to war yesterday after ‘many’ pro-Moscow separatists were killed during a major military offensive by troops of the Kiev government intense fighting broke out as the army attempted to take back seized city Slaviansk

As fighting flared at several locations in the east of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin said the operation had ‘destroyed’ any hopes of peace.

The Kremlin said Kiev’s decision to deploy the army against its own people was a ‘catastrophe’ and called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council.

Meanwhile globalist, Bilderberger and Rockefeller confidant Zbigniew Brzezinski has posted a plea on the Politico website, urgently requesting washington to call for more direct U.S. involvement in Ukraine.

“It is more than a month since the Russians annexed Crimea, and recent events have only exacerbated the crisis, with pro-Russian rebels reportedly shooting down two Ukrainian helicopters in separatist-held Slaviansk on Friday. Yet the president still hasn’t laid out a comprehensive statement of what is really at stake,” writes the co-founder of the Trilateral Commission.”

Indirectly calling Russian President Vladimir Putin a “thug,” Brzezinski says “we have an obligation to help Ukraine.” He characterizes the crisis as “the most important challenge to the international system since the end of the Cold War” and tells Obama he desperately needs to issue “a comprehensive statement of what is really at stake” and address “the American people on this issue…”

Obama needs the support of the American people on this one. There are rumblings of unrest at his administrations flagrant violations of constitutional limits and Obama’s Imperial style of governing and Americans are sick of long term involvelents in civil conflicts that even if quelled will only flare up again as soon as American troops leave. Thus he has to convince voter that Ukraine is important enough to warrant the deaths of American soldiers and that his stand deserves both national understanding and support.

He might struggle on this one and the race card does not seem to be earning him any indulgences any more.

IMF Demands Ukraine Risk World War 3 in Return For Bailout Money

So how close do you think we are to World War Three?
a) We were on the brink when Putin stood by Syria but things have cooled off.
b) No worries. Liverpool don’t play Chelsea again until next season
c) Who cares so long as those racist shits Farage and Clarkson are first to get blown away.

Whichever you answered you are wrong. We are now set on a path that must inevitably lead to war and The Rent Boy President, aided and abetted by the United Nazis is determines to keep the tachometer in the red zone because the people who pull his strings need war. (What? you thought the UN was an organization dedicated to peace – name one conflict in the past 50 years they haven’t been involved in. The UN is dedicated to the profits of the military / industrial complex)

And other United nations linked bodies including the IMF are in the game too.

from Infowars
The IMF has told Kiev that if it doesn’t defend eastern areas of Ukraine against pro-Russian forces, or in other words risk going to war with Russia and starting World War 3, that a planned $17 billion dollar bailout package will have to be “redesigned”.

IMF head Christine Lagarde said that the global body would “check regularly” to see if Ukraine was keeping up with its commitments on which the loan deal is dependent. One of those commitments includes a vow to use military forces to repel Russian influence in the east of the country.

The IMF has told Kiev that the money spigot could be cut off if Kiev “loses control over (the) East of the country”.

“Which, roughly translated, appears to mean go to war with pro-Russian forces (and thus Russia itself if Putin sees his apparent countrymen in trouble) or you don’t get your money!,” Zero Hedge.

Innumerable analysts have warned that if Russia and Ukraine engage in a full blown conflict, regional and even world war could eventually ensue. The IMF is seemingly so desperate to make Ukraine another one of its loan shark client states that it is willing to risk the annihilation of billions of people to achieve such a scenario.

The fantastic “deal” that the Ukrainian people are getting in allowing the post-coup government to sell out to the IMF vampires includes a 50% hike in energy prices, a halving in pensions, crippling inflation, huge tax hikes and a freeze in the minimum wage.

Ironically, a huge chunk of that money will be used to pay Russian-owned natural gas supplier Gazprom, with whom Kiev is behind on its bills.

Putin: Washington behind Ukraine events all along, though flying low

As Barack Obama, John Kerry and William Hague continue to talk a good war (with the volume turned up to eleven?) Vladimir Putin and Russia continue to run rings around them. Not for nothing are the Russians known as the best chess players in the world.

Putin Says Washington was Behind Ukraine Unrest – Now Leading It

The US has been behind the Ukrainian crisis from the beginning, but was initially flying low, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said. He added that if sanctions continue, Russia will have to reconsider who has access to key sectors of its economy.

“I think what is happening now shows us who really was mastering the process from the beginning. But in the beginning, the United States preferred to remain in the shadow,” Putin said, as quoted by RIA Novosti.

Putin stated that since the US has taken a lead role in resolving the political crisis in Ukraine, it is “telling that they originally were behind this process, but now they just have emerged as leaders” of it.

The “Maidan cookies” policy paves the way to a broader crisis, Putin warned, referring to US officials showing up in central Kiev and encouraging protesters during demonstrations.

“It is necessary to understand that the situation is serious and try to find serious approaches to the solution,” he said.

Putin said that he has called on Kiev to start an all-Ukrainian dialogue, adding that other countries should not be blamed for the crisis.

“[They should] treat equally the rights of those living in other areas of Ukraine, first of all, I mean, the east and southeast, establish a dialogue, find a compromise,” he told journalists while speaking about the measures necessary to put an end to the crisis. “Here’s what you need to do; searching for the guilty outside Ukraine is wrong.”

World Edges Closer To War

Any of the people who accused be back in 2008 of being racist because I predicted that if Barack Obama became US President the man’s arrogance and narcissism were such that he would take the world to the brink of war and possibly over the edge while simultaneously trashing the American economy and thus plunging the world into chaos. Come on, you know who you were, don’t you remember saying “but he can’t possibly fail, Little Nicky, can’t you see he’s black and therefore infallible.”

Yes, I mean you. Well if you are ready to admit you were WRONG WRONG WRONG, just write your name on a fifty pound note and send it to Little Nicky Machiavelli, care of blog.co.uk.

But if you are still strugging to come to terms with the fact that as a leader Obama ranks alongside Idi Amin, John Doe, Juan Peron, Robert Mugabe, ‘Emperor’ Jean Bedel Bokassa, Said Barre, Sese Mobutu (and a few more*)as a total and utter shit, look at his latest push for war:

from Paul Craig Roberts, Infowars

The Obama regime, wallowing in hubris and arrogance, has recklessly escalated the Ukrainian crisis into a crisis with Russia. Whether intentionally or stupidly, Washington’s propagandistic lies are driving the crisis to war. Unwilling to listen to any more of Washington’s senseless threats, Moscow no longer accepts telephone calls from Obama and US top officials.

The crisis in Ukraine originated with Washington’s overthrow of the elected democratic government and its replacement with Washington’s hand-chosen stooges. The stooges proceeded to act in word and deed against the populations in the former Russian territories that Soviet Communist Party leaders had attached to Ukraine. The consequence of this foolish policy is agitation on the part of the Russian speaking populations to return to Russia. Crimea has already rejoined Russia, and eastern Ukraine and other parts of southern Ukraine are likely to follow.

Instead of realizing its mistake, the Obama regime has encouraged the stooges Washington installed in Kiev to use violence against those in the Russian-speaking areas who are agitating for referendums so that they can vote their return to Russia. The Obama regime has encouraged violence despite President Putin’s clear statement that the Russian military will not occupy Ukraine unless violence is used against the protesters.

*Anyone who is thinking, “But hold on Little Nicky, all these are African, there have been other nasty dictators surely?” just think of how much was made of Obama’s African Antecedents by those who proclaimed him America’s greatest President the day after he was elected. Obama clearly hates all non African races so much (we know this because he keeps launching drone strikes against those who have no means of fighting back) it would be unfair to compare him to Joe Stalin, Pol Pot, Charman Mao, Adolf Hitler and the rest.

The Painful Truth: Washington DC Thugs Have Already Crossed the Rubicon

from 21st Century Wire

One of the key underlying postulates of overseas wars has been somewhat lost on many Americans who have been conditioned through top-down political and mass media narratives over the years, to only see geopolitical and military events in binary form – freedom vs fascism, good vs evil, capitalism vs communist, and west vs east. The concept not mentioned in that list has been fundamental throughout history, and it is as follows: what is endorsed overseas will eventually come home to roost.

Think about it. The decades-long phase we’ve all witnessed – of the United States Federal Government’s hyper-militarisation overseas is already firmly planted on US soil.

Think about how much money and resources were spent by the US Federal government in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Iran, Egypt and now in the Ukraine, on 1) intelligence gathering, and 2) counterintelligence, and 3) social and political subversion, 4) intentional destabilisation, or 5) an end-run hostile takeover of government, and 6) the installation of a puppet regime . You have to ask yourself whether or not they can, or have already, deployed these same measures here in the United States. At the very least, we already know for certain that the US Federal government has already done the first three things in that list.
