Skip to comments.'That was a blast - look at the smoke': Sick boast of the laughing rebels as they 'saw MH17 hit....'
Posted on 07/17/2014 2:03:46 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
Laughing rebels filmed the plane as it crashed, gleefully bragging That was a blast look at the smoke! while a fireball rose from the debris.
One of the voices is believed to be militia commander Igor Strelkov, who then penned a triumphant war cry on Twitter, saying: We warned you do not fly in our sky.
A sickening mobile phone video posted online shows a pall of black smoke billowing over the crash site as three rebels provide an excited commentary.
The extraordinary footage apparently filmed by the shooters themselves charts the terrible final moments of the doomed airliner.
Their camera does not zoom in enough to see the plummeting plane in the sky, but the rebels voices can be heard talking happily of black spots these are the parts flying, suggesting it fell to earth in several pieces.
A voice believed to be that of Strelkov dubbed Igor the Terrible announces: The plane was hit! He adds: Look at those black spots, these are the parts, flying it was a blast look, look, black smoke!
Another rebel, possibly referring to the missile system, laughs and says: It was worth bringing this thing, wasnt it?
None of the rebels can be seen in their horrific film, but it appears to be genuine because at the time only they seemed to know what was happening. Ordinary life carries on in the village where they are standing. A bus trundles by and an unsuspecting villager is seen wandering past the camera.
Shortly after the passenger plane was downed, Strelkov seen smirking in propaganda photos tweeted a boastful message claiming responsibility.

Too bad it didn’t crash on top of these scum!!
Note to self:
Do not fly on 17 July.
Do not fly on Malaysian Airlines.
Just in time for the Centenary of WWI—the new Lusitania.
23 Americans on board ?
This should get interesting the next 24 hours.
It’s times like this that I remember Sec. Of Defense Gates stating that we need MRAPs for Iraq more than F22 air superiority as he justified killing the F22 program.
Note to self:
Do not fly on 17 July.
Do not fly on Malaysian Airlines.
I don’t think you’ll need to worry about that last part; after this, I doubt they’ll be in business much longer.
They, the rebels (perps), are a bunch of scum bums.
This is comparable to Biden’s: “Hey Chuck...stand up for us...stand up...Oh...”
From March 10, 2014...
Russian troops seize hospital, missile base in Ukraines Crimea
Russian soldiers disarmed servicemen at a Ukrainian Army missile base overnight Friday. Ukrainian military spokesman Vladislav Seleznyov told a local TV station that some 200 troops approached the building and threatened to charge it if the Ukrainian soldiers refused to give up their weapons.
Crimeas parliament has set a March 16 referendum on joining Russia, which has been denounced by Ukraines government.
March 25, 2014...
“the seized armaments include ships, the underwater infrastructure of the Ukrainian Navy that has no analogues anywhere else in the Black Sea, Marine Corps weapons, including MANPADS, air defense systems, and, in particular, Buk M1 missile systems.”
July 17, 2014.
“BUK missile launchers are capable of taking down aircraft the size of a Boeing 777 flying at a cruising altitude of 33,000 feet, meaning the impact is likely to have blown the plane apart in the sky”
I’m pretty sure the evidence that the “rebels” shot it down is pretty strong right now. This and the phone intercepts are pretty convincing.
I think I’m going to give this one some time. There are some claims that the postings are forged. A lot of disinformation is likely going on in multiple directions.
I find it curious that the so-called rebel leader is calling himself “Strelkov.” The nom-de-guerre in Dr. Zhivago used by the husband of Lara turned communist sadistic killer was “Strelnikov.” The derivation of the name relates to shooting. Just odd.
I;m waiting to see which film the White House blames this on.
For the love of humanity, will SOMEONE PLEASE create a hashtag!!!!!!???
They are speaking Russian with an Eastern Ukrainian accent, which doesn't make sense for an FSB colonel.
“For the love of humanity, will SOMEONE PLEASE create a hashtag!!!!!!???”
Hey, at the very least, the media will quit focusing on the illegal alien invasion of the US.
I guess McCain wants another big assed war with Russia.
Good bye America. You been had.
#I’m waiting to see which film the White House blames this on.
He is now a self convicted war criminal. Russia should help capture him and his commanders to turn over to the Hague.
Is it a coincidence that today is the anniversary of the July 17, 1996 flight 800 downing?
There are only so many days in a year.
These scumballs don’t make a sandwich without the express, written consent of Vladimir Putin.
Write a "stern" letter to someone?
They thought it was an Antonov-something-or-other. They had no idea it was a Malaysian commercial passenger jet.. Sheesh.
Not just that, but hell, these guys file a report in triplicate to Putin and the GRU when they drop a deuce in the morning.
Igor's life just took a turn for the worst. He will be a hunted man and the hunt may not take that long.
Really think this is “goodbye America”?
Am sure a lot of folks thought similar right after Pearl Harbor. Not saying this is anything close to Pearl Harbor.
If anything wakes up this sleeping giant filled with a terrible resolve, it will be the damn liberals who are knifing us from within by a thousand cuts.
Methinks Strelkov is headed to a one-way trip to the Lubyanka.
Not one thing will be done about it.
"Russians don't take a dump, son, without a plan."
Exactly which makes Putin also a war criminal.
Wash his balls.
Strelkov, aka Girkin, has been identified as a Soviet GRU (military intelligence) colonel.
See, at FR, “Ukrainian Rebel Commmander Identified as Russian GRU Military Intelligence Colonel”, Bill Gertz, ,”freebeacon.com”, June 20, 2014.
By the way, Soviet spy Alger Hiss was also a GRU agent.
The KGB-FSB/Putin is not our only Soviet/Russian enemy.
If I had to put money on it, I would guess auto accident.
Well in case the Russian sympathizers in Donetsk are not aware of it, their life is about to change and not in the way they dreamed.
You mean Reggie’s?
He’ll get to it after he does his daily ration of fundraising for Commies!
That is what I meant. The focus now will be on this damn airplane. The border problem will be ignored as everything else has been ignored.
The vets are a memory now. So is Obamacare, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS.........you name it.
Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Libya, Sudan, Hamas rocketing Israel, Christians slaughtered by the hundreds, Jews attacked by Muzzies in France, . . .
That's the sort of stuff a Muzzie wants to keep out of the headlines.
The democrat media can bury domestic stuff with entertainment slop and important perversion stories without all the fuss of an international incident.
The UK piece has many elements of propaganda in it, attributing emotions to the rebels instead of just reporting the facts. I don’t trust the British press myself. Beware of propaganda. (Not saying this is not a tragedy, my prayers to the families who lost loved ones.)
When they say "rebels", are they talking about Ukrainians who are fighting Russians or are they talking about Russians fighting Ukrainians?
Isn't it convenient how Putinist priorities change in a time like this?
Rebels would be the separatists would be the Russian special forces. The Ukrainians are not rebels in their own country.
Like the one who hasn't said a word between 2010 when they were shilling for the guy the coup threw out and 2014 when they reappeared shilling for the current crowd. You know, the propaganda crew in Kiev who work for whoever has power at the moment.
Oh, and of course, all the rabid Futurama fans, but they're idiots 24/7/365.25 no matter what the topic.
You do have for feel kinda sorry for the Futurama fanboyz around here who like to display the disastrous effects their long term drug use has had on their wee brains.
Those Futurama fanboyz call others "scummy Putinists", too, but they just picked that phrase up between tokes on their bongs so they're a tad different than the professional idiots.
Neither group has the sense God gave a jackass.
