“guess who probably supplied the ground to air missiles to them.”

A dead Ambassador to Libya.

What do you suppose the Russian response would have been if they would have actually brought that CIVILIAN plane down?

Note to self:

Do not get on a plane that will be flying over Syria.

I suspect this is Russian agitprop, but it is aimed directly at the bow of the USS Obama Foreign Policy.

This is a countermove to the just released news of a “gas attack” by Assad’s regime.

Something smells here. How does a civilian airliner evade not one but two SAMs? They have no defensive systems, big hot turbofans, they are not that maneuverable... The only likely scenario I can see is that the shooters fired when it was outside the normal engagement envelope - maybe too high or too far away and they just didn’t get there...

Was the plane’s call sign ‘Lusitania’?

Obama has special forces in Turkey and Jordan aiding Syrian rebels.

Russia has special forces supporting Assad, possibly manning anti-aircraft sites.

Days ago, Obama claims Assad my be using chemical weapons...crossing the line.

Days later, Putin claims Syrian rebels took a pot shot at a Russian civilian airliner...crossing the line.

Just tit-for-tat.

“Syrian [officials] informed us that on Monday morning, unidentified forces launched two ground-to-air missiles which exploded in the air very close to a civilian aircraft belonging to a Russian airline,”

Do air to air missles explode without hitting their target? Do they have proximity sensors or something?

Remember how the Russians dealt with the Somali pirates who seized a Russian ship? Putin is not wishy-washy like Obama and those firing those missiles will come to regret their targeting of the Russians.

I don’t know if I believe this story.

See, obama was elected and he hit the ‘reset’ button and erased all the evil that George Bush did on the world scene. We’ve returned to the Garden of Eden, and everyone is happy.

Therefore, this report cannot be right.

The Russians do not play.

Both the people in Syria, and the United States, will suffer if this has been enabled by us.

BTW, how sh*tty are those missiles if they cannot take out a slow, lumbering civvy aircraft?
