These are people who have seized a portion OF Ukraine, claiming it as their own but, in fact, they are nothing but Putin’s proxy. His regional puppets. Those trying to take Ukraine the way Putin took Crimea. Those “rebels” are doing FOR Putin what Putin says HE’S not doing at all.
The Ukraine “rebels” would be nothing without Putin, without Russia and they know it, Putin knows it and we know it too.
The mere notion that they would have had he capability or the training or the hardware necessary to bring down ANY aircraft without Putin’s deep assistance in PROVIDING the missiles and the training is pure folly and that they have used that very system several times over the past couple of weeks points directly to their months if not years old partnership with Putin’s army.
The SA-11 system takes at least a full year of training to be used and those rebels have been able to bring down planes for several weeks now.
These are RUSSIANS who want nothing more than to return Ukraine over to Putin and his new Russian Empire at the end of the day.
Vladimir Putin is blaming Ukraine for the deadly attack on that civilian airliner because HE wants the world to believe that HE had nothing to do with the act of war.
Ukraine is now HIS version of a You Tube video but…is he right?
Just as Obama armed “rebels” in Libya…PUTIN is arming “rebels” in Ukraine.
Just as Obama made sure, by leaving the scene of the attack to the cleanup efforts of HIS “rebels” before any real investigative organization could gain access to it…PUTIN has had the black boxes, parts of MH-17 and the majorities of the bodies REMOVED from the scene of THAT attack and taken back to Moscow where HE can control the investigation.
Just as Obama’s fingerprints are all over the Benghazi attacks…PUTIN’S finger prints may well be over the attack on MH-17.
There are but two major differences between the two events.
First…Putin never intended for HIS “rebels” to attack anything but Ukrainian military aircraft and second, those who died were not his own.
Treasonously, I believe, Obama cannot make those same claims with any degree of honesty.
Here in the United States…Obama controls the liberal, crotch-sniffing media lapdogs and when it comes to Benghazi, the alphabet media can’t get their collective heads out of Obama’s ass long enough to search for and/or report the truth of what transpired in Benghazi.
In Russia…Putin has Russia Today…HIS version of the Soviet Union’s Pravda and the difference between RT and our Mainstream media is that a growing list of reporters at Russia Today just aren’t feeling that tingle up their leg. They’re leaving.
Last week, it was Sara Firth, a RT reporter based in London who quit and stated that, “I walked into the newsroom, and they were running an eyewitness account of God knows who the person was blaming the Ukrainian government, and it is such a volatile situation.”
“It’s the level of disrespect for the facts that really bugs me.”
“I couldn’t do it any more, We’re lying every single day … and finding sexier ways to do it.”
“We are asked on a daily basis if not to totally ignore then to obscure the truth”
A few months ago, Liz Wahl, an RT anchor based in Washington quit for the same reasons stating, “Russia Today whitewashes the actions of Putin and requires that we promote Russian foreign policy.”
If only OUR Pravda media anchors and reporters had the balls of Wahl and Firth.
Regarding the shoot down of MH-17, Obama said, “The United States stands ready to provide any assistance that is necessary. We’ve already offered the support of the FBI and the National Transportation Safety Board, which has experience in working with international partners on these types of investigations. They are on their way, personnel from the FBI and the National Transportation Safety Board. In the coming hours and days, I’ll continue to be in close contact with leaders from around the world as we respond to this catastrophe.”
“Our immediate focus will be on recovering those who were lost, investigating exactly what happened and putting forward the facts. And I want to point out there will likely be misinformation as well. I think it’s very important for folks to sift through what is factually based and what is simply speculation. No one can deny the truth that is revealed in the awful images that we all have seen, and the eyes of the world are on eastern Ukraine, and we are going to make sure that the truth is out.”
“Over the last several weeks Russian- backed separatists have shot down a Ukrainian transport plane and a Ukrainian helicopter, and they claimed responsibility for shooting down a Ukrainian fighter jet.”
“This includes arms and training. It includes heavy weapons. And it includes anti-aircraft weapons.”
So, Obama blamed Russia but, what about blaming Putin directly?
NOT surprisingly, he failed to implicate Putin directly as to have done so would have also meant implicating himself for the Benghazi attacks…something which Obama’s Pravda media has been loathe to do regardless of facts at hand.
Obama’s seeming urgency to investigate the downing of MH-17 over THERE is nothing but a transparently lame attempt to make it appear to independent voters that he is, at least, willing to investigate SOMETHING even if it’s not over HERE!!!
It’s nothing but lip service though…he’ll just wait until he reads about it in his version of Pravda and tell us that it was ROGUE pro Russian “rebels” who STOLE that SA-11 launcher.
European countries are over a barrel of Russian crude and can’t, for fear of being cut off, take action against Russia over the death toll of their own as related to the downing of MH-17, Obama WILL do little more than maybe add to the list of ineffectual sanctions he has already imposed against Putin’s Russian Empire 2.0 AND Obama’s removal of defense systems from the region means the Europeans can’t protect themselves either.
The shooting down of MH-17 was a case of mistaken identity in that Putin’s “rebel” puppets were trained in how to aim and fire the SA-11 missiles but may not have been well trained enough to discern the difference between a passenger jet and a military cargo craft.
Meanwhile, Islamic terror organizations are licking their bearded lips over the prospect of acquiring such weapons as those that shot MH-17 from the sky last week. Now that the world has seen the results and given that Iran HAS such weapons, do not be at all surprised if they let THEIR proxy war puppets have them and the next time such a loss of innocent life occurs…it won’t be a mistake that led to it.
Time will tell if Putin IS responsible for the shoot down of MH-17. We just haven’t seen enough to know but…I am sure we have not seen the last civilian airliner get blown from the skies. This is now the world we live in.
