Skip to comments.The Malaysia Airlines crash is the end of Russia’s fairy tale
Posted on 07/25/2014 8:46:33 AM PDT by Uncle Chip
Before there is any further discussion of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, its important that one point be made absolutely clear:
This plane crash is a result of the Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine, an operation deliberately designed to create legal, political and military chaos.
Without this chaos, a surface-to-air missile would not have been fired at a passenger plane.
From the beginning, the Russian government did not send regular soldiers to Ukraine. Instead, it sent Russian mercenaries and security service operatives such as Igor Strelkov the commander in chief in Donetsk and a Russian secret police colonel who fought in both Chechen wars ...
With the help of local thugs, these Russian security men besieged police stations, government offices and other symbols of political authority to delegitimize the Ukrainian state.
In this task, they were assisted by the Russian government and by Russias state-controlled mass media, both of which still constantly denigrate Ukraine ...
Into this ambiguous and unstable situation, the Russians cynically funneled a stream of heavy weapons: machine guns and artillery and, eventually, tanks, armed personnel carriers and anti-aircraft missiles....
Indeed, Strelkov on Thursday afternoon reportedly boasted online of having taken down another military plane before realizing that the plane in question was MH17. The blog post was removed.
In late June, several different Russian media sources published photographs of Buk anti-aircraft missiles that they said had been captured by the separatists though they were probably outright gifts from Russia. These posts have also been removed.
This is the context within which a surface-to-air missile was aimed at a passenger plane: a lawless environment; irregular soldiers who might not be so good at reading radar; a nihilistic disregard for human life; scorn for international norms, rules or standards ....

It wasn’t a ‘crash’........................
Man, the Washington Post and New York Times sure have become a popular source for truthful news lately on FR.
Would you prefer Russia Today or Pravda???
They're feeling jilted by their boy Pooty Poot.
Well, sure it was - after it was blown out of the air the remnants crashed to the ground....
Putin has an excuse to get out. Will he do it?

What news? That Russians are immoral brutal thugs? Everybody knows that already.
Well, as many Putinistas feel good about getting their truth straight from the Putin-approved sources, some people might want other sources not under his control.
“They’re feeling jilted by their boy Pooty Poot. “
A few here had tingle up their leg from Pootie Poot.
I think there is a whole lot of lying going on by both sides and we are all being played.
One thing is certain. I stick to the rules. If Obama and his media are acting hawkish and all at once acting like they care about some country, something ain’t right. That means I should remain skeptical because they are up to something.
There is an invasion and occupation by Mexico and Central America going on on our border orchestrated by Obama. I won’t hold my breath that we will have another nation running to our aid.
Most of them are calling him on his incompetence. Probably, you want him incompetent so Putin will succeed.
Your status has been officially upgraded to Useful Idiot by the Kremlin.
Please continue ...
Whatever scooter. LOL
I am sticking to it.
Keep your eyes on the border, our border. I suggest they do the same on their border.
You always justify your Obamabot, RINO stance by calling people Russian agents or ridiculous names.
At least you are consistent.
LOL, funny dude
That's the ticket --
Keep posting stuff like that and your status will be bumped again.
