Skip to comments.MH17 SMOKING GUN: 'Rebels' Caught Rushing EMPTY BUK Launcher Back to Russia

And some experts think it wasn't even 'rebels' operating it,
they lack the (extensive) training required;
rather, the killers were regular Russian troops...
Kiev-loyalist spies reportedly filmed the launcher used in the attack
being hurried to Russia - with two missiles missing (twitter)
Apparently the Russians are finding it a bit more difficult to kill, lie,
and cover-up in the citizen-journalist/internet era...

This report came out yesterday and appears credible. Intercepted radio traffic also points to Russian backed militia units. Despite their denials, looks like the rooskies did this.
I found it interesting in the linked Mail article that the Ukrainian expert said the launcher was headed for the crusher and the crew that fired it are probably already dead, executed to remove all witnesses from this world.
The Kremlin is run like the mafia in every way, inc. the way they cover their tracks
The YouTube video I posted at my site appears indisputable
Putin’s proxies caught dead to right.
I wonder if this will give second thoughts to Putin’s fan club.
You mean like Pat Buchanan?
Yes, as an example, I do think of Pat as being embarrassingly fond of anti-American autocrats, like Putin. Putin’s pattern of reestablishing the soviet/Russian empire is clear. For Pat, that’s no biggie.
BTW I was just reading where the Ukrainians have prove it was Russians -NOT ‘rebels’- operating the BUK batteries. They say they have intercepts to prove it.
Looks like they had at least three of these SAM batteries there in Ukr
That means the Kremlin shot down MH17
Couldn’t agree with you more
I always found him an original thinker worth listening to but after too much Israel bashing and Putin loving I couldn’t take him anymore.
Sad, because McLaughlin Report/Reagan was what got me interested in conservatism in my college years...
He can be spot on but is so determined to prove isolationism is utopia that he goes off the deep end blaming everyone but the criminals.
Exactly- another thing I don’t get is how Pat thinks it’s bad for us to have anything resembling an empire, but he admires ‘great powers’ like Russia.
Russia is far from what I consider ‘great’
I think Pat was just born 200 years too late. He’d have made a good proponent of autocracy as the best way to preserve traditions and the rights of kings and superior men.
He definitely seems of another time, no doubt
He lacks the commons-sense urgency of Ted Cruz, who seems far more attached to the current reality
I agree. Cruz should be an easy candidate for conservatives to coalesce around; he’s very smart and committed to our ideals. He’s not bitten by the crank theories that abound and spin up some who cannot discern, for example, that Putin is a statist who uses a couple of conservative views for demagogic reasons only.
Not to make light out of any of this but it looks like they were trying to do a Reichstag fire, forgot they needed a patsy, and were too dim to notice that it would come back on them.
According to other reports it wasn’t “empty” but did have one or two missing.
The BUK launcher in your picture is not empty. It has two SAMs clearly visible and with atleast one missing. It’s not clear from the photo if the 4th one is there or not.
