Mirror of the World (Russia) ^ | 26.08.2008 | Bulov

MOSCOW, August 25 - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday sent a message of condolences to Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev in connection with the crash of a Boeing-737 plane at Bishkek’s international airport Manas, the Kremlin press service reported.

The Boeing, belonging to Kyrgyz Itek Air carrier, was on a fight from Bishkek to Tehran. It took off from Manas at 18:30, Moscow time, on Sunday and several minutes later requested an emergency landing. However, it failed to reach the airport and went down five kilometres away from the landing strip, near the settlement of Dzhany-Dzher.

According to official reports, there were 90 passengers and crew on board the plane. Sixty-five bodies have been found at the site of the crash. The Kyrgyz government has set up a commission to look into the plane crash.

The jet was on its way to Tehran, the Iranian capital. Among those on board were 44 Iranian Scientists and Engineers.

Iran will produce evidence that the plane was sabotaged by Americans who are trying to get Krgyrstan to install radiological detection at their borders.

This is a Russian site in English.

Read the comments below the posting to get a good sense of how froggy the Russians are feeling these days - all from beating up 4 Georgian brigades with a 5 to 1 ground force advantage. Sheesh.

Even if it was a complete accident, the issue remains: what are 44 Iranian scientists and engineers doing in Russia?

Not in Russia. Kyrgizstan is a different country, with linguistic ties (Persian) to Iran.

I'm guessing Mossad or CIA. It would be pretty tough to shoot down a 737 with an M16.

It is the will of Allah

Said it before, say it again...Allah is a pretty pathetic godling.

My nation is marginally Christian; at minimum, a majority of people here think they are Christians, even if they don't really know enough about it to qualify. And we have the best health care, the strongest armed forces, the highest standard of living, the most conquered diseases, the lowest infant mortality, the greatest personal liberty, and even our poor people generally can own cars and TV's. We've been to the moon, and walked on it (take note, Moon-cultists), we have heat in the winter, coolness in the summer, reliable air travel, and TV's you can carry in your pocket.

Allah? Don't make me laugh. His people are generally staving, poor oppressed farmers, forced by their pompous hypocrite leaders to live like it was the 1600's. The can be beheaded for flying kites or singing, their women are slaves that can be killed for "honor", their children can be ordered to blow up infidels on the promise of some mythical glory in the hereafter. Their religious leaders are constantly bickering over what their god wants you to eat for breakfast or a thousand stupid little points of the law. Their leaders steal the profits from the oil sales and when the people ask why they are starving, they blame their sad, pitiful lives on America. They have holy days every damn week, at which thousands of people are crushed on a regular basis by crowds that trample like cattle. Their buildings regularly fall down in earthquakes or are blown down by storms that seem to always head directly INTO the Muslim population. Their god apparently commands them to take on the most powerful nation on earth, and when the wholesale slaughter is done, resulting in slightly over 4000 "infidel" dead compared to untold thousands of Allah's "most faithful", the only consolation they get is the wispy insubstantial promise of virgins from beyond the grave...and a grave.

Based on what I see, either Allah is a pitiful, ineffectual little Baal with a big mouth, or he must really hate his followers.

YOUTUBE posting on crash:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MIx3eZbK3s

This was a 737-200 with the OLD OLD OLD JT8D motors ,, Itek was banned from landing in western europe , presumably for failing to meet safety standards.. This youtube posting fails to mention the contingent of scientists ,, rather it notes that a youth basketball team was on board ... since the crew had time to return to the airport for an attempted landing I think we can rule out a catastrophic failure ... this could have been nearly anything at this time...

Yeah, and like what’s so great about virgins anyway. I would rather have like grown experienced women who know what’s what, not a pack of 18 year olds (assuming there is an age limit in Paradise) who have to be taught everything and are probably text-messaging addicted to boot.

parsifal, who is wise in such things.

Not to be too much of a tin foil hat guy, but Iran could just say that there were 44 scientist on the plane, call them all dead, and then put the actual live 44 scientist to work in a underground bunker. It's a nice way to make people disappear with them not actually disappearing.

I do not think this crash will get the attention it would if the f.a.a. investigated it.
Foreign country and all. F.A.A. investigators would have to be invited in to check it out and I gots a feelin that ain’t gonna happen.
