MH17 conspiracy theories blame Ukraine for Malaysia Airlines crash ^ | July 20, 2014 | Matthew Fisher

Setting aside some of the wildest claims by Moscow’s yellow tabloids about how those killed in the crash were already dead before the missile struck, a good starting point is the sharp disappointment that observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) have repeatedly expressed over the lack of access they have received to the crash site, which is in rebel-held territory.

Russian state media have made no mention of any such difficulties or the way masked men with assault weapons were overseeing the bodies being “piled in a heap” in refrigerated railway cars, according to Britain’s Guardian newspaper. Rather, as RIA Novosti reported on Sunday, “by taking its time” it was Kyiv that had caused the delays in reaching and collecting the bodies of the crash victims.

Another report by Novosti claimed this weekend that the OSCE had found no problem with how the bodies were being handled. In fact, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, who lost more than 150 compatriots in the crash, has expressed his outrage to Putin over Russia’s handling of this issue.

As for who was responsible for the missile launch, Itar-Tass, said Sunday that a “reputable” Russian expert had told the state-run news agency that a tape posted by Ukrainian security services on the Internet only hours after Thursday’s incident in which Russian-backed separatists spoke of shooting down a civilian airliner, was “a fake” that had been patched together from three different recordings.

Using Putinista logic, the plane violated Putin’s proxies by getting in the way of the missile Putin provided them. I’m sure they’ll sue the airline for the damages to the missile.

MH17 disaster: Is this the man who shot down the plane?

The prime suspect goes by the name Strelkov - or “shooter”. Real name Igor Girkin, the former Russian intelligence officer has shot his own troops for insubordination. He may have just shot down a passenger plane with 298 people on board.
“We did warn you - do not fly in our sky,” he reportedly posted to a Russian social media page just hours ago.

This chilling message was most probably aimed at the Ukraine government, Girkin’s target in a vicious separatist war.

But that post has now been deleted as it has become clear the jet was from Malaysia Airlines, not a military transport aircraft of the type Girkin has brought down in recent weeks.
No amateur can bring down a passenger jet streaking across the sky. A trained operator must work the sophisticated surface-to-air missiles required.

Girkin first appeared in Ukraine in April and started killing then. There is an allegation and signed documents suggesting he had a man shot for stealing a T shirt. He’s a self admitted Russian GRU Colonel as recently as last year. Lives in Moscow, etc., etc. “Civil War” my behind.

Malaysian Airliners go tits up every time Obama is feeling some heat.

That’s an incredibly stupid theory. Only a very narrow-minded person could possibly believe such stupidity. Some Americans think that everything that happens in the world has something to do with America and Obama. Actually this has nothing to do with Obama or America at all.
