Ron Paul Says U.S. May Share Responsibility for Malaysia Airlines Plane Crash

Former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul claimed Sunday that the U.S. and European Union may share responsibility for the downing of a Malaysia Airlines plane over Ukraine last week.

“While western media outlets rush to repeat government propaganda on the event, there are a few things they will not report,” Paul, a former Republican congressman from Texas, wrote on his website. “They will not report that the crisis in Ukraine started late last year, when the EU and U.S. overthrew the elected Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovych. Without U.S.-sponsored ‘regime change,’ it is unlikely that hundreds would have been killed in the unrest that followed. Nor would the Malaysian Airlines crash have happened.”

No US airliner is permitted to fly over Ukrainian airspace since all the tension started. But the Malaysians who lost a plane already this year figured. “What the hell” we got plenty.

I wouldn’t fly that airline.

Ron Paul is to blame because... Putin knew if something like this happened, Ron Paul would come out and blame America.

There, let’s see how he likes it...

Yeah, yeah, yeah. And it’s unlikely the US would have done this had the US never existed. Therefore (by Paulestinian logic) the shoot down of the jet was in part caused by the existence of the United States.

It’s all Bush’s fault. Hell, we can probably blame it on Thomas Jefferson. Had he not written the declaration rebelling against the King, we’d still be British Colonials. No, it’s King George’s fault for raising taxes on our tea! but then, he was just raising money to pay for the war with France, so it’s all France’s fault. If we work hard enough, we can probably find British and or french involvement with the Russo-Turkish War of 1768–74 t that brought Southern Ukraine, Crimea and the upper northwestern part of the North Caucasus within the orbit of the Russian Empire. So it is all Russia’s fault after all.

Don’t ya just love this guy? Now the media will be telling the world that the front runner for the GOP nomination for President says we are responsible for the deaths of hundreds.
He’s not Republican, I don’t know how he is able to constantly attach himself to the party, or why party leaders allow this to happen.
Is it any wonder why the party is lacking in raising funds? They step on the conservatives and embrace the lunatic.

By the way, it’s actually all Reagan’s fault. Had he not snookered them into tearing down that wall, the Soviet Union would’ve still had a choke-hold on the entire region and none of this would’ve happened. Of course, the entire world may have become a glass parking lot, but you never know.

He’s a disgrace. The Ukrainian people overthrew a corrupt government run in the interest of Putin. Putinistas don’t get that, but that’s what happened when Putin vetoed that president’s intentions to join the EU.

A Malaysian airliner is shot down by Russia over Ukranian territory and it’s the US’s fault. Got it.

That’s it for me. I have lost all patience with Rand Paul. He has some good positions, but defending the West is number one role for the government, and anyone who cannot understand who Putin is, is too dull for the job of President.

We can’t stand two unqualified Presidents in a row. In fact, we can’t survive ONE in a row!

If you based this on a comment from a newsreader on ANY newschannel, you should have been a bit more circumspect with posting it as fact. Newsreaders have a long history of getting facts profoundly wrong.

The principal thing you need to know is that no US airline flies a route that would take them anywhere near Ukraine in the first place.

I read his article in full. Despite his “let’s wait for the facts” conclusion, which is in and of itself reasonable, my take away thought was simply...

Uncle Ron is self prescribing.
