Ebola: Doctors Told to Prepare for Global Outbreak After Victim was Allowed on Two Planes


Liberia: Patrick Sawyer, whose sister also died from Ebola, was allowed on two ASKY Airlines flights in Liberia while infected.

Doctors fear Ebola victim Patrick Sawyer may have sparked a worldwide spread of the killer disease after being allowed on two flights while infected.

And tonight a desperate race was on to find dozens of passengers who flew on the same jets as the 40-year-old American.

British doctors and border officials have been warned to be on the lookout for people in the UK showing signs of the disease.

Mr Sawyer was allowed to board an ASKY Airlines flight in Liberia, where Ebola is rife, despite vomiting and suffering from �diarrhoea. His sister was recently killed by the virus.

He had a stopover in Ghana then changed planes in Togo and flew to the international travel hub of Lagos in Nigeria.

The borders should have been closed long ago (see previous posts on this subject) to prevent this occurrence. It is because our global society has become more accepting of cover-ups and irresponsibility that responsible measures have failed to be implemented. Revealing truth (whistleblowers, leaks) about corruption is essential in changing the world and developing a more transparent and accountable civilisation.

War Is Coming — Paul Craig Roberts


The West has ganged up on Russia, because the West is totally corrupt. The wealth of the elites is based not only on looting weaker countries whose leaders can be purchased (read John Perkins’ Confessions of an Economic Hit Man for instruction on how the looting works), but also on looting their own citizens. The American elites excel at looting their fellow citizens and have wiped out most of the US middle class in the new 21st century.

In contrast, Russia has emerged from tyranny and from a government based on lies, while the US and UK submerge into tyranny shielded by lies. Western elites desire to loot Russia, a juicy prize, and there stands Putin in the way. The solution is to get rid of him like they got rid of President Yanukovich in Ukraine.

The looting elites and the neoconservative hegemonists have the same goal: make Russia a vassal state. This goal unites the Western financial imperialists with the political imperialists.
http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/07/28/war-coming-paul-craig-roberts/

The West is pushing for conflict, but with their economies and financial institutions in a mess, they may fall apart before anything is initiated, especially if the BRICS nations come together and destroy the US dollar system (which they are doing slowly). The talking between Russia and Germany may indicate that the Germans are aware of this slow long term game and are looking to move away from US influence.

Let's hope wiser heads within the US can stall any of the current war plans or false flags. A peaceful people's revolution against Washington, using the Constitution as their justification, would be helpful.

False Flag? Fake Video of Alleged Pro-Russian Militia Claiming Responsibility for MH 17 Attack Was Made Before Plane Crash


This could almost be a smoking gun of the false flag attack with respect to MH 17. Some five hours after the loss of MH 17, the Ukrainian Security Service published a recording of alleged pro-Russian military officers led by commander Bes, who is based in Gorlovka (Horlivka), allegedly confirming that they shot down the Malaysian Boeing 777.

The video was uploaded about 5 hours after the time of the plane’s crash–20:16 PM local time.
The video tape claims that the call took place at 16:40 local time. But the plane was lost between 17:15-20 local time. The timing might be put in order if one assumes that, for some strange reason, the Ukrainian secret service decided to put their Moscow Time instead of the time in Donetsk. But this seems to be a stretch and does not appear to be warranted. It does not make sense for Ukrainian secret police to mark the time of their videos according to the time in Moscow.

Moreover, and even more importantly, as the log of the video shows (see the photo), it was actually made the day before on June 16 at 19:10 PM

The first alleged recordings are at 16:40 and 16:33. Apparently local time. At the alleged 16:40 (still more than half an hour before the plane was supposed to crash), a person in the taped conversation claims that the plane was shot down “about half an hour ago.” At 17:10 the next call is made that is telling about allegedly finding a first casualty.
http://www.globalresearch.ca/false-flag-fake-video-of-alleged-pro-russian-militia-claiming-responsibility-for-mh-17-attack-was-made-before-plane-crash/5391985

The options, in terms of what happened, are:

1. The rebels accidentally shot down the aircraft, that was directed by Ukrainian Air Traffic Control over the warzone,

2. The Ukrainian army, accidentally or deliberately, shot down the aircraft using a BUK system and this was pinned on the rebels, or

3. A Ukrainian aircraft, either an SU-25 or SU-27, perhaps flown by foreign mercenaries, shot down the flight as part of a false flag operation (or by mistake thinking it was Vladimir Putin's Presidential jet which is of similar colouring).

One thing that is true, the US has not released any satellite data, that should exist, showing a rebel BUK missile system in the area of the attack. The US could instantly prove the rebels were responsible - but have done nothing - which makes one strongly suspect the separatists had nothing to do with what happened. The only evidence we have is a video of a BUK system missing some missiles on the back of a flatbed truck and this highly suspect audio recording, both released through the Ukrainian authorities.

On the other hand the Russians have reported, confirming witness sightings aired by BBC Russia (see here also), that military aircraft had shadowed the MH17 flight, and that there were Ukrainian Army BUK missile systems in the area (also seen on Russian satellite photos) in the immediate area before the attack, and that they subsequently vacated the area in the follow up flyover pics.

25 Recent Events in Ukraine the U.S. Wants You To Forget


Remember when our rulers told us that regimes like Saddam, Gaddafi, and Assad were the epitome of evil and must be liberated because they allegedly killed their own citizens? Probably not. Americans have short memories.

I only remind you to let you know that the U.S. and other Western governments have reversed their stance on regimes killing their own citizens. They now fully endorse and support this rule-with-an-iron-fist so long as the victims can be successfully labeled “separatists” or “terrorists”.

In fact, they want in on the action. The Pentagon began wargaming this week with the regime in Ukraine on how best to kill pesky citizens in Eastern Ukraine who oppose the U.S. Vice President’s son stealing and fracking shale gas on their land.

People who defend their land and families are called “terrorists” when imperial powers want their resources. In turn, Western rulers call violent coups “duly elected” if they pledge allegiance to the IMF.

This situation is creating friction among the world’s superpowers not seen since the Cold War. Obama recently expressed concern that ”The old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite where we need to be in terms of a new order.” Later in the speech he blamed uncooperative nations (read Russia) for standing in the way of the New World Order.

It seems if Russia doesn’t get on board with the Western-led world order, these powers are destined to clash in a West vs. East showdown over international banking and the control of gas supplies.

Here are 25 recent events, or data points, that our rulers hope we forget when they blame the collapse of the old world order on Russia:
  1. US spent $5 billion to destabilize Ukraine, not to mention the millions NGOs spent on “opposition groups“. The State Department was even caught playing kingmaker in Ukraine in secret recordings during the takeover.
  2. November 21st, 2013 - Ukraine’s President abandons an agreement on closer trade ties with EU, instead seeking closer cooperation with Russia. Violent pro-EU protests begin to organize.
  3. December 17th, 2013 - Putin offers to buy $15bn of Ukrainian debt and discount the price of Russian gas by about a third.
  4. February 2014 – Violence of coup peaks on the 20th. On 22nd protesters took control of Kiev and Parliament votes to remove president from power.
  5. February 23rd – New interim government named, replaces head of Ukraine central bank.
  6. March 6th – Obama signs national emergency executive order to punish Ukrainians that ”undermine democratic processes and institutions” of the coup government in Ukraine. You can’t make this stuff up.
  7. March 16th - Crimea holds voter referendum to split from coup government in Kiev and ally with Russia, passes by over 95%.
  8. March 20th – Obama announces more unilateral sanctions on Russia.
  9. March 24th – Leaked tape where former prime minister of Ukraine and darling of the West, Yulia Tymoshenko, calls for wiping out all Russians with nuclear weapons.

Jesse Ventura Vindicated After MSM Smear Campaign


Alex Jones breaks down the decision on the recent Jesse Ventura case. A jury ruled in Ventura's favor against the slanderous claims by Chris Kyle, former Navy Seal.



The importance of this story is the attempt to smear a public figure that challenges the establishment. Ventura is not right about everything, but he does have a lot of supporters plus people who respect his honesty, which makes him a target. The other interesting aspect of this story is the death (assassination?) of Chris Kyle and his connections to neocon types.

Immigration, World Poverty and Gumballs


Immigration - Global humanitarian reasons for current U.S. immigration are tested in this updated version of immigration author and journalist Roy Beck's colorful presentation of data from the World Bank and U.S. Census Bureau. The 1996 version of this immigration gumballs presentation has been one of the most viewed immigration policy presentations on the internet.



Because of the vast number of poor in foreign nations, immigration will not do very much to help the situation. They key is to help other nations build better states - which is almost impossible seeing how the West treats Third World countries with unfair trading rules and how they accept crooked governments that loot the wealth of these nations and give the profits to a small elite circle and complicit Western Corporations.

Wrap-Up: Lavrov on ‘Containing Russia’, Ukraine & MH17 Crash


Russia's Foreign Minister says the groundless allegations against Moscow over Ukraine need to stop, but insists there will be no tit-for-tat response to any Western sanctions.



The US has accused Russia of involvement in Ukraine but with NO PROOF. On the other hand there is abundant evidence of US involvement in Ukraine.

The key point here is that Russia is offering to have European Observers on its border with Ukraine, to show they are not involved in the resistance fighting in the East of the country, and yet the EU and USA do not take up the offer - so they can push prowar propaganda against Moscow. This situation shows who the real criminals are in facilitating the conflict.

Lavrov: Time to investigate MH17, not to cover tracks


The problem for investigators at the MH17 crash site at the moment is the fact that the area is under attack by Ukrainian Government forces. There was supposed to be a ceasefire in the area. It's like the people in Kiev do not want the international investigators to succeed, which makes one suspicious of the official western account of what happened.

Israel Takes Away 44% of Gaza Land … Herds Gazans Into Remaining Area


Daily Beast reports (hat tip Wall Street Journal reporter Tom Gara):

This narrow strip of land that used to be called “the Gaza Strip,” already one of the more densely populated places on earth, is growing dramatically smaller. The Israeli military, relentlessly and methodically, is driving people out of the three-kilometer (1.8 mile) buffer zone it says it needs to protect against Hamas rockets and tunnels. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the buffer zone eats up about 44 percent of Gaza’s territory.

What that means on the ground is scenes of extraordinary devastation in places like the Al Shajaya district approaching Gaza’s eastern frontier, and Beit Hanoun in the north. These were crowded neighborhoods less than three weeks ago. Now they have been literally depopulated, the residents joining more than 160,000 internally displaced people in refuges and makeshift shelters. Apartment blocks are fields of rubble, and as I move through this hostile landscape the phrase that keeps ringing in my head is “scorched earth.”


Source: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/07/israel-takes-away-44-gaza-land-herds-gazans-remaining-area.html

This appears to have been the objective from the beginning. The murders of the three Israeli teens that initiated the conflict were know at the time to be murders, but the Government pretended it was a kidnapping in order to arrest and kill Palestinians until HAMAS reacted with rocket fire. It's even admitted that HAMAS had nothing to do with the initial murders that occurred in the West Bank not Gaza.

The Israelis will not agree to any immediate ceasefire, will reject all terms offered by HAMAS, and will continue their incursion, accepting a level of international condemnation for the moment because they know they will not face any serious rebuke in the long run - especially with US Government support.

Influence of Israeli Lobby in West - Why Nothing is Done to Stop the Gaza Massacre


Nearly 1,050 Gazans have been killed since Israel launched its onslaught in the Gaza Strip on July the eight. At least 6,000 more Palestinians have also been wounded. According to the UN, over two-thirds of the fatalities among the Palestinians have been civilians. Meanwhile, Israel has extended a cease-fire in its offensive against Gaza for an additional 24 hours. Hamas has rejected the ceasefire proposal saying any truce that does not include withdrawal of the Israeli troops and tanks from Gaza will not be acceptable.





The discussion here cuts to the heart of the problem - Israel's lack of accountability in the global community. The clip also deals with the overall agenda to ethnically cleanse Palestine.

A Reply and Reaction: Stop with the Ridiculous Russia Bashing and Get your Facts Straight - Letter to Christine Milne, Leader of the Australian Greens Party


I sent an email to the Greens leader here in Australian over some Russia Bashing comments she made a week or so ago. Some advisor actually wrote back ... (I've included my short win-no-friends reply below):
 
-----Original Message-----
From: xxxx, John (Sen C. Milne)
Subject: RE: [General] Stop with the Ridiculous Russia Bashing and Get your Facts Straight
...
 
Dear [Spook]
Thank you for your e-mail and for sharing your thoughts on this matter with us.
In response to the situation in the Ukraine, Senator Milne's has confirmed her support for the course of action proposed by the UN Security Council resolution.
Regards
John xxxx
Office of Senator Christine Milne, Australian Greens Leader


MY REPLY:

Mr John xxxx,

This response does nothing to address the fact-based observations I raised. I am not confident that you know what you are doing by now stating that you are simply following the UN security Council Resolution. It does not explain the knee jerk and unsubstantiated Russia bashing episode I had witnessed.
 
It is because of the fact that people and politicians have trouble identifying the causes of war and conflict that we are condemned to repeat ourselves. When the instigators of conflict face no punishment - such as we saw with the illegal US-UK invasion of Iraq - then further outrages will continue.

Thanks for being part of the problem,

[Spook]
_____________________________________

Here is my Original Letter/Post:

The following letter was sent to the leader of the Australian Greens party in response to her views appearing in this link. I also heard her speak in a similar fashion on radio. I just hope someone is paying attention here.

EMAIL:

As an online News Blogger, and researcher, I know that your views on Russia's involvement in Ukraine, and with the Malaysian Airlines shootdown, are unfounded. The term factually incorrect comes to mind.

Your erroneous views are most likely due to the advice you have been given. Your advisers obviously have no clue.

 Firstly, your view that Russia is to blame for what is happening in Ukraine, with your comment about reacting to their 'going into Crimea', grossly distorts what actually happened.

The facts are that the corrupt pro-Russian Government in Kiev was overthrown by a US sponsored coup that included anti-Russian fascists, oligarchs, and actual neo-Nazi types (you can view videos of them), and that subsequently the semi-autonomous region of Crimea VOTED to separate itself from the newly installed regime. This is what is called 'self determination' in places like Kosovo, where it suits western interests.

The reasons for Crimea, and other regions of Ukraine, separating from the Kiev Government are abundantly clear - it is the presence of the anti-Russian fascists who are on record as wanting to rid Ukraine of the Russian speaking people in the East. This was one of the first calls coming from the Kiev Government - to ban the Russian language - and although soon retracted, was taken to heart in the East and South of the country. The multitude of other threats and strong arm tactics against those that opposed the coup, plus the right wing massacre of the anti-Kiev protesters in Odessa, led to a strong determination to resist their control.

I would not blame the Government of Russia for aiding the rebels in their fight against Kiev considering the circumstances. The various proposals at negotiating a peace, that would have included elections that would have removed the largely unpopular neo-Nazis, and other fascists installed in Government positions, were scuttled. Having Poroshenko as the head of the Kiev regime did not change anything.

And as for the MH 17 shootdown itself, you have stepped way out of line, along with our no good Prime Minister, in admonishing the reactions of the Russians.

It is because of the war, and efforts to vilify resistance to the Kiev Government, that the Russians, plus the rebels in Ukraine, will not outright accept any claims made by their present enemies. In fact we should be extremely cautious about ANY claims being made by all sides regarding this issue, and mindful that our western side lied shamelessly during the Crimean separation claiming that the Russians had 40,000 troops and tanks on the border whereas an NBC News crew travelling the area at the time found no signs of a military build up. The Russians pointed out that the NATO pictures of troops and tanks were from an exercise that occurred the year before.

The problem you face here is that there WILL be false information put out about what happened. The Russians and Ukrainian rebels could easily be the victims of such a ploy (that includes fake radio communications and imagery) rather than the perpetrators. This scenario would explain their present reactions to the accusations levelled against them.

You cannot simply assume that Russia or the rebels are at fault for the shootdown of MH17. IF they are at fault then the shootdown would have been accidental - just as the US shootdown of the Iranian airliner in 1988 was accidental. You have already wrongly assumed that the Russian Government had the leading role in causing the break up of Ukraine whereas it was the nature of the coup in Kiev that facilitated the rise of the resistance/self-determination movement.

If you have research staff that can type into a Google Search engine you will be able to VERIFY everything I have mentioned here. I'll include one link below that gives you a small window into what happened regarding the Kiev coup and how the actions of those fighting against the Government are REACTIONARY. ie They are not the true instigators of the trouble:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWkfpGCAAuw&list=UUEHsSWvrGVSIA63OV3J6vhA

You should also consider watching this video that includes raw footage that clearly shows what happened in the Odessa Massacre:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4dJRnI-X8Q&list=UUEHsSWvrGVSIA63OV3J6vhA  

As a News Blogger I always check the facts when it comes to situations like these. You and your advisers should start doing the same.

ps. I was very very unhappy to hear what you had said about the Ukraine Crisis - hence the tone of this response.  Please take what I have said here very seriously. People are being killed, once again, for no good reason. If there were more people challenging the western corporate/government media discourse, things would be different.

Does Russia (And Humanity) Have A Future? Europe is Complicit in its Own Demise — Paul Craig Roberts


The Russian government has finally realized that it has no Western “partners,” and is complaining bitterly about the propagandistic lies and disinformation issued without any evidence whatsoever against the Russian government by Washington, its European vassals, and presstitute media.

Perhaps the Russian government thought that only Iraq, Libya, Syria, China, and Edward Snowden would be subjected to Washington’s lies and demonization.

It was obvious enough that Russia would be next.

The Russian government and Europe need to look beyond Washington’s propaganda, because the reality is much worst.

NATO commander General Breedlove and Senate bill 2277 clearly indicate that Washington is organizing itself and Europe for war against Russia (see my previously posted column).

Europe is reluctant to agree with Washington to put Ukraine in NATO. Europeans understand that if Washington or its stooges in Kiev cause a war with Russia Europe will be the first casualty. Washington finds its vassals’ noncompliance tiresome. Remember Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland’s “fuck the EU.” And that is just what Washington is about to do.

The US Senate’s Russian Aggression Prevention Act, about which I reported in my previous column, does even more mischief than I reported. If the bill passes, which it likely will, Washington becomes empowered to bypass NATO and to grant the status of “allied nation” to Ukraine independently of NATO membership. By so doing, Washington can send troops to Ukraine and thereby commit NATO to a war with Russia.

Notice how quickly Washington escalated the orchestrated Ukrainian “crisis” without any evidence into “Russian aggression.” Overnight we have the NATO commander and US senators taking actions against “Russian aggression” of which no one has seen any evidence.

With Iraq, Libya, and Syria, Washington learned that Washington could act on the basis of baldfaced lies. No one, not Great Britain, not France, not Germany, not Italy, not the Netherlands, not Canada, not Australia, not Mexico, not New Zealand, not Israel, nor Japan, nor S. Korea, nor Taiwan, nor (substitute your selection) stepped forward to hold Washington accountable for its blatant lies and war crimes. The UN even accepted the package of blatant and obviously transparent lies that Colin Powell delivered to the UN. Everything Powell said had already been refuted by the UN’s own weapons inspectors. Yet the UN pussies gave the go-ahead for a devastating war.

The only conclusion is that all the whores were paid off. The whores can always count on Washington paying them off. For money the whores are selling out civilization to Washington’s war, which likely will be nuclear and terminate life on earth. The whores’ money will incinerate with them.

It is hardly surprising that Washington now targets Russia.
http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/07/25/russia-humanity-future-paul-craig-roberts/

Great article from Roberts about the need for the rest of the world to stand up to lunatic US hegemonic moves. The crazies need to be held accountable. Inside the USA special Grand Juries or independent military JAG units could act to stop the criminals. US States have the capacity to organise and act to bring to account those in violation of their Oaths of Office - to protect the Constitution.

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert with a double header discussing the ‘dumb money’ piling into markets just as the Spectator’s cover story reads: “The Next Crash: We could be on the brink of another financial crisis.” Max and Stacy read through the piece in shock at the obvious signs of misallocation of wealth while chasing dumb bubbles - including a P/E ratio now at 25.6 compared to a historic norm of 16.5. In the second half, they examine more misallocation of wealth as the US spends an additional $1 trillion annually on healthcare compared to if they spent the same percentage of GDP as the next most expensive country, the Netherlands. While overspending by $1 trillion, the energy grid has the most blackouts of any developed nation and yet less than half a trillion could replace the dumb, old grid with a smart, new one.

The Catastrophe of #MH17: #BBC in the Search of the “#BUK” – The Video Report Deleted by @BBC


The original BBC Video Report was published by BBC Russian Service on July 23, 2014. Why did BBC delete this report by Olga Ivshina? Is it because the BBC team was unable to find any evidence that a rocket was launched in the area that the Ukrainian Security Service (“SBU”) alleges to be the place from which the Novorossiya Militia launched a “BUK” missile?

Or is it because every eyewitness interviewed by the BBC team specifically indicated the presence of Ukrainian military aircraft right beside the Malaysian Airlines Boeing MH17 at the time that it was shot down?

Or is it because of eyewitness accounts (like the one posted following the transcript of the BBC report) confirming that the Ukrainian air force regularly used civilian aircraft flying over Novorossiya as human shields to protect its military aircraft conducting strikes against civilian population from the Militia’s anti-aircraft units?

Israeli Lawyer Doesn’t Deny Nuremberg Crimes on Palestinians (What the Nazis Did to the Jews)


Professor of International Law at the University of Illinois, Champaign, Francis Boyle – responsible for drafting the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, the American implementing legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention, with a Doctor of Law Magna Cum Laude as well as a Ph.D. in Political Science, both from Harvard University - says:
I spoke with the head military lawyer for the IDF, Joel Zinger. And I said … “It’s clear you people are inflicting Nuremberg crimes on the Palestinians. Exactly what the Nazis did to the Jews. What’s your explanation?” 
He said: “Military necessity.” 
Notice, he didn’t disagree with me. 
I said: “That argument was rejected at Nuremberg when the lawyers for the Nazis made it.” 
And then he said: “Well, we have public relations people in the United States … and they handle these matters for us.”

Cold Warmongering: Putin Vilified by MSM Magazines & Newspapers


Kiev says the Malaysian airliner didn't veer off course before going down - contradicting evidence provided by the Russian Defence Ministry. Meanwhile amid conflicting claims and a lack of clear proof, the media are stirring up talk of a new Cold War, jumping at any opportunity to point the finger.



The first clip features the censored BBC Russia news story where witnesses saw a military jet flying close to where the Malaysian airliner was shot down.

_______________________________________________
Story #2:
Where’s the Beef? US Media Blame Game VS Russia’s Counter-Evidence

The MH17 crash is turned into an information war by western media. Despite the US officials say there is no evidence of Russia’s involvement in MH17 crash, the Western media is looking for a new face to blame.



The accusations of direct Russian involvement in the shootdown, with the implication that civilian airlines had been deliberately targeted, are absurd, and were so from the first day of the incident. RT is right to criticise the western media (and various politicians/experts) over their handling of the tragic event.

It was interesting to see the snippet of the CNN interview with the leader in Donetsk who was told that if their forces moved the bodies they'd be responsible. ie they were warned off moving the bodies. I have doubts that they were blocking any investigation due to the number of media on scene.

A Brief Gaza Conflict Timeline - from Whatreallyhappened.com


The webmaster, Mike Rivero, of Whatreallyhappened.com wrote the following timeline (on 24/7) that spells out the fact that the Israelis are responsible for the fighting in Gaza. Plus, Israeli security forces killed a number of Palestinians before any HAMAS rockets had been launched. They were the provocateurs.
Let's review the timetable.

Last month, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza. ISIS has taken credit and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

But Netanyahu declares HAMAS, the legally elected government of Gaza, responsible and launches bombing raids into Gaza using the very latest high-tech weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers.

To put Israel's actions into perspective, let us recall that over the July 4th weekend, 8 people were killed in Chicago. Using Netanyahu's logic, the Democratic party should be blamed and all of Illinois bombed and invaded!

The Palestinians, who have been attacked without provocation, fight back with their home-made rockets, which so far have mostly knocked a few roof tiles loose.

But to Israel's supporters, we should all forget that Israel attacked Gaza without a valid reason, and view Palestine's attempts to defend themselves as the crime, so that Israel can go on pounding the Palestinians with their superior weapons.

I want to point something out. The Israelis sit in their tanks, or the drone operations centers, or fly high above Gaza in their US-supplied warplanes, dropping the latest in US-supplied high tech lethal munitions, and imagine themselves the heroes they read about in the Torah. The Israelis, clearly unafraid of HAMAS rockets, line the hills overlooking Gaza and cheer the carnage, much as the Romans at the Colosseum cheered as the Christians were thrown to the lions. The Palestinians huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies.

MSNBC, Mainstream Media Under Attack for Biased Gaza Coverage


MSNBC is the hot seat after being accused of having a pro-Israeli bias in its coverage of the conflict in Gaza. While on-air Monday, Rula Jebreal scolded the network for being “disgustingly biased” and ignoring the plight facing Palestinians as Israel and Hamas continue their fighting. Shortly after her critique, the journalist took to Twitter to claim that all of her future appearances had been cancelled, prompting a major backlash that prompted the network to have her reappear and make her case.

US Intelligence: No Evidence Russia Did It — Paul Craig Roberts


After days of placing hostile blame for the downing of the Malaysian airliner on Russia, the White House permitted US intelligence officials to tell reporters that there is no evidence of the Russian government’s involvement.

Obviously, the US satellite photos do not support the Obama regime’s lies. If the White House had any evidence of Russian complicity, it would have released it to great fanfare days ago.
-------------------------------------------------------
Washington will never permit official clarification of MH-17. Today (July 23) the BBC (the British Brainwashing Corporation) declared: “Whitehall sources say information has emerged that MH17 crash evidence was deliberated tampered with, as the plane’s black boxes arrive in the UK.”

After making this claim of tampered with black boxes, the BBC contradicted itself: “The Dutch Safety Board, which is leading the investigation, said ‘valid data’ had been downloaded from MH17’s cockpit voice recorder (CVR) which will be ‘further analyzed’. The board said: ‘The CVR was damaged but the memory module was intact. Furthermore no evidence or indications of manipulation of the CVR was found.’”

The BBC does not tell us how the black boxes are simultaneously in British and Dutch hands, or how they got into British and Dutch hands when the separatists gave the black boxes to the Malaysians with the guarantee that the black boxes would be turned over to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for expert and non-politicized examination.

So where are the black boxes? If the Malaysians gave them to the British, Whitehall will tell whatever lie Washington demands. If Washington’s British puppet actually has the black boxes, we will never know the truth. Judging from the hostile and unsupported accusations against Russia from the bought-and-paid-for Netherlands prime minister, we can expect the Dutch also to lie for Washington. Apparently, Washington has succeeded in removing the “investigation” from the ICAO’s hands and placing the investigation in the hands of its puppets.
http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/07/23/us-intelligence-evidence-russia-paul-craig-roberts/

The point about the US having satellite data and not releasing it is a very good one. If they had clear proof, and could point to the rebel BUK missile launcher, they should have done so already.

Pilots Heard Ukrainian Air Traffic Control Order MH17 to Change Route - Russia Accuses Kiev of Tampering with ATC Recordings


The AI Dreamliner was less than 25km away from MH17 when it was shot down, a flying distance of just 90 seconds.
 
Ukraine ATC subsequently asked the Dreamliner pilots to try and make contact with MH17 when it disappeared from radar, but to no avail.
 
India’s civil aviation industry denied that the Dreamliner was in the region when the incident occurred, although flight tracking data shows it was in the vicinity.
 
The news arrives as Russia accused Kiev of tampering with air traffic control data in order to sway the outcome of the investigation into what happened to MH17.
 
“According to reports that emerge, Ukrainian authorities are conducting certain covert activities involving data storage equipment and employees of Ukrainian air traffic control services, both civilian and military, without notifying international organizations,” spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said in a statement.
 
As we reported yesterday, the question of why Ukrainian authorities have refused to release transcripts of air traffic control conversations with pilots of the doomed airliner continues to swirl almost a week after the incident. In comparison, air traffic control transcripts involving Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which went missing in March, were released publicly within 72 hours.
 
Almost immediately after MH17 was shot down, “Ukraine’s SBU security service…. confiscated recordings of conversations between Ukrainian air traffic control officers and the crew of the doomed airliner,” reported BBC News.
 
Information obtained from the recordings could determine the veracity of Russia’s claim that MH17 was being closely followed by at least one Ukrainian fighter jet in the minutes before its demise.
 
Questions have abounded as to why flight MH17 pilots were re-routed to overfly eastern Ukraine when most other major airlines have avoided the airspace for months. Data shows that MH17′s previous ten flight paths before the shoot down avoided eastern Ukraine entirely.
http://www.infowars.com/pilots-heard-ukrainian-air-traffic-control-order-mh17-to-change-route/

Withholding information indicates a cover-up of some kind - either of wrong doing or incompetence - or perhaps it was done as a deliberate ploy to simply sow confusion (a psy-op) which I find unlikely in this particular instance. If the tapes had information that proved the fault of the rebels in Donetsk, then you would expect they would have been released along with the other 'evidence' that has come from Kiev.

Key Piece of Video “Evidence” for Russian Responsibility for Malaysian Plane Shootdown Debunked?




The video referenced by the New York Times was, in fact, posted on the Facebook account of the Ukrainian Interior Minister. The allegation was that the launcher was crossing the border with Russia.

However, going by the billboard and other features of the scenery, Russian bloggers and news sources claim to have identified the road in the video as having been taken in or near the town of Krasnoarmeisk (“Krasnoarmiysk” in Ukrainian), which has been under Kiev’s control since May.

In fact, the billboard is supposedly advertising a Krasnoarmeisk car dealership. Also, one of the structures in the background is said to be a construction materials store on Gorkii Street, Krasnoarmeisk.

Please note that this town is (very roughly) 120 kilometers from the Russian border and 80 kilometers from where the Malaysian 777 went down. And again, it has been under Kiev’s control since May.
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-07-21/key-piece-video-%E2%80%9Cevidence%E2%80%9D-russian-responsibility-malaysian-plane-shootdown-debunked?page=1

Zerohedge are doing a good job covering this story. My question on this video is who was filming this BUK system, and where is the rest of the tape? It's awfully convenient 'evidence'.

And where are reports and pictures of the BUK missile smoke trails?

Hacked Emails "False Flag to Occur in Ukraine" So U.S. Military Gets Involved Against Russia


CNBC running story saying Russia media blaming CIA for downed MH17. Remember the Hacked emails from March between Army Attache and Ukraine Military General calling for a false flag to blame on Russia so the U.S. can get involved with the military against Russia.



Apart from pointing out the hacked false flag planning emails, the video has an excellent go at US accusations of a controlled Russian media pointing out that western corporate media has a very poor record in exactly this regard.

Perverted Truth: How Rebel Mourning MH17 Victims was Turned into Looter with Trophy



Twitter is quick, but too quick sometimes – recently it burst with photos of an evil Ukrainian militiaman who took a teddy bear from the victim of Malaysia plane crash as a trophy. But the full video shows he was just paying the tribute to the dead.

The footage shows that one of the members of self-defense troops suddenly saw a teddy bear which apparently belonged to a child who was among the 298 passenger on board the Malaysian jet.

“We want those bastards to see whom they shot down,” the man said, “Do you see?” meaning that there were innocent children who died in the crash.

Then he carefully put the toy back to a heap of other items that used to belong to the passengers.

After that he took off his cap and marked himself with a sign of the cross paying the tribute to the memory of the victims of the catastrophe.

Senior U.S. Intelligence Officials: Russia Was Not Directly Involved, and The Most Likely Explanation Was the Plane Was Shot Down By MISTAKE


We’ve previously documented civilian planes have accidentally been shot down by Ukraine, Russia, the U.S., Israel and China, and that the Malaysian plane may have accidentally been shot down over Russia.

The Associated Press confirms this possibility:

Senior U.S. intelligence officials say they have no evidence of direct Russian government involvement in the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.
***
A senior official said the most likely explanation was the plane was shot down by mistake.
http://rinf.com/alt-news/breaking-news/senior-u-s-intelligence-officials-russia-directly-involved-likely-explanation-plane-shot-mistake/

There is no way the Russians or rebels would have deliberately shot down the aircraft. The initial accusations in the western media, and from various politicians, were obvious political attempts at vilifying Russia.

The other question that remains is whether Kiev forces shot down the plane deliberately or as an accident - as opposed to the rebels being responsible.

Iraq's Hell on Earth, IDF Soldiers Against Occupation & World Protests Against Israel


Abby Martin reports on the thousands of activists across world cities protesting the continued Israeli aggression in Gaza, highlighting demonstrators in Paris being met with gas and rubber bullets after a French ban on pro-Palestinian demonstrations. Abby then reports on the more than 5,500 civilians killed in the first 6 months of 2014, and speaks with journalist and author, Dahr Jamail about his recent article breaking down the events that have taken place since the US withdrawal that have led to Iraq becoming a near failed state. Abby then speaks with Suha Najjar, a resident of Gaza City, discussing the horrors of daily life on the ground in Gaza since the Israel's latest offensive and debunks the 'human shield' rhetoric often heard from the IDF when justifying indiscriminate killings of civilians. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Avner Gvaryahu, a member of 'Breaking the Silence' an organization made up of veteran Israeli soldiers that seeks to educate people on the counterproductive effects of the continued Israeli occupation of Palestine.



The attack on Gaza was facilitated by the Israeli Government using known murders, that they pretended was a kidnap case, to crack down on Hamas (that denied involvement) and elicit an armed response.

The fighting in Gaza was set-up to happen.

BUILDING PROFESSIONALS CAUGHT OFF GUARD ON WTC 7 (They had never heard about it)


This incredible reality — that the majority of our nation's architects and engineers are oblivious to WTC 7—is one of the primary reasons that AE911Truth headed to the Windy City last month for the 2014 National Convention of the American Institute of Architects. It was the fifth time since 2008 that our non-profit organization has attended this annual event, which this year was held at Chicago's McCormick Place on South Lake Shore Drive, the largest convention center in North America. The nearly 800 exhibitors and more than 15,000 architects in attendance had an opportunity to hear AE911Truth sound a wake-up call about the impossible claims of the official story of collapse by fire of the three skyscrapers on 9/11/01.

Ebola Outbreak Continues to Spread


Something deadly is creeping across African borders, undetected.

Since February, an Ebola outbreak has spread from the remote southeast of Guinea across the fluid boundaries of West Africa into Sierra Leone and Liberia. 85 new cases were reported in the second week of July alone, helping to push the death toll to just over 600, and increasing pressure on the global health community to bring the epidemic under control.

But it’s not so easy. The early symptoms of Ebola are hardly unique and therefore they are difficult to detect. The most common signs are fever, vomiting, bleeding and diarrhea. As the infection progresses, individuals experience internal bleeding, an inability to clot blood, organ failure, and a shutdown of their immune system.

Ebola isn’t airborne, and it can’t survive for very long on surfaces, but it is highly transmissible through contact with blood or bodily fluids. Once infected, up to 90% of victims die (in the case of the current Ebola outbreak, this rate is around 56%).

The first Ebola outbreak occurred in the 1970s, and it claimed 280 lives. As of mid-June, the death toll of the current outbreak was 350, and it has since almost doubled to 603.

So how does the largest and most deadly Ebola outbreak to date get brought under control? Bart Janssens, director of operations for the medical group in Brussels, says this outbreak is particularly challenging because of the mobility of the infected populations and their proximity to major hubs like the capital cities of Guinea and Libera. The disease can spread more easily than ever with so many outbreak locations and the ease at which individuals can move across borders. Because the virus has a latent period of 21 days, by the time symptoms appear and become contagious many individuals have already crossed a border and brought the virus to another location.
http://www.geopoliticalmonitor.com/ebola-outbreak-continues-spread-west-africa/

The Ebola outbreak is just as important as the conflicts we see in Ukraine or the Middle East. The lack of action here, in closing borders, is troubling. It's likely that nothing will happen until we have a mass casuality situation. The biggest problem is the long incubation period for the virus which is 21 days.

Ron Paul Defends Russia After Malaysian Plane Crash


Former Congressman Ron Paul defended the Russian government on Sunday and slammed Western leaders for spreading “propaganda” after a Malaysian Airlines plane was allegedly shot down by Kremlin-backed separatists in Ukraine.

“Western politicians and media joined together to gain the maximum propaganda value from the disaster. It had to be Russia; it had to be Putin, they said,” the former presidential candidate wrote. “While western media outlets rush to repeat government propaganda on the event, there are a few things they will not report.”

One of those unreported things, Paul claimed in his weekly “Texas Straight Talk” column, was the United States’ own responsibility for destabilizing the region. Ukraine is currently embroiled in violent conflict between the Ukrainian government and the pro-Russian separatists.

“They will not report that the crisis in Ukraine started late last year, when EU and US-supported protesters plotted the overthrow of the elected Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovych. Without US-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,” Paul wrote.

The U.S. government has said its intelligence suggests the plane was shot down by the separatists with weapons supplied by the Russian government. But Paul, echoing Russia’s own line of defence, insinuated the Ukrainian government is to blame.

Kiev’s Evidence of Militia’s Responsibility for Airliner Crash Faked - Expert


A tape posted by Ukrainian security services in the Internet and allegedly recording a talk between self-defense fighters about the destruction of a Malaysian airliner is a fake, experts said on Sunday.

A group of experts studied the tape and came to the conclusion that it was made up of numerous unrelated recordings.

“This audio recording is not an integral file and is made up of several fragments,” said Nikolai Popov, a reputable expert in sound and voice analysis.

Specifically, the first of the three audio fragments, in which Gorlovka self-defense militia commander Igor Bezler talks about a plane shot down by the fighters, does not say anything about the type of the plane, the expert said.

At the same time, the name of the town of Yenakiyevo is clearly heard in the tape. However, the town is located about 100 km (60 miles) from the settlement of Snezhnoye where the Malaysian Boeing-777 airliner crashed.

Bezler said the talk had really taken place but the he had talked about a Ukrainian attack aircraft shot down by the militia above Yenakiyevo a day before the Malaysian airliner crash.
http://en.itar-tass.com/russia/741521

If this analysis is correct the official story is almost certainly a lie, and the attack on MH17 a false flag event designed to vilify Russia.

We still need to see the analysis in detail to understand the claim being made here.

RT posted a story on the expert's findings:

Pepe Escobar Mocks John Kerry's 'It was Putin's Missile!'


And here's the spin war verdict: the current Malaysia Airlines tragedy - the second in four months - is "terrorism" perpetrated by "pro-Russian separatists", armed by Russia, and Vladimir Putin is the main culprit. End of story. Anyone who believes otherwise, shut up.

Why? Because the CIA said so. Because Hillary "We came, we saw, he died" Clinton said so. Because batshit crazy Samantha "R2P" Power said so - thundering at the UN, everything duly printed by the neo-con infested Washington Post. [1]

Because Anglo-American corporate media - from CNN to Fox (who tried to buy Time Warner, which owns CNN) - said so. Because the President of the United States (POTUS) said so. And mostly because Kiev had vociferously said so in the first place.

Right off the bat they were all lined up - the invariably hysterical reams of "experts" of the "US intelligence community" literally foaming at their palatial mouths at "evil" Russia and "evil" Putin; intel "experts" who could not identify a convoy of gleaming white Toyotas crossing the Iraqi desert to take Mosul. And yet they have already sentenced they don't need to look any further, instantly solving the MH17 riddle.

It doesn't matter that President Putin has stressed the MH17 tragedy must be investigated objectively. And "objectively" certainly does not mean that fictional "international community" notion construed by Washington - the usual congregation of pliable vassals/patsies.

And what about Carlos?


A simple search at reveals that MH17 was in fact diverted 200 kilometers north from the usual flight path taken by Malaysia Airlines in the previous days - and plunged right in the middle of a war zone. Why? What sort of communication MH17 received from Kiev air control tower?

Kiev has been mute about it. Yet the answer would be simple, had Kiev released the Air Traffic Control recording of the tower talking to flight MH17; Malaysia did it after flight MH370 disappeared forever.

It won't happen; SBU security confiscated it. So much for getting an undoctored explanation on why MH17 was off its path, and what the pilots saw and said before the explosion.

The Russian Defense Ministry, for its part, has confirmed that a Kiev-controlled Buk anti-aircraft missile battery was operational near the MH17's crash. Kiev has deployed several batteries of Buk surface-to-air missile systems with at least 27 launchers; these are all perfectly capable of bringing down jets flying at 33,000 ft
.
http://atimes.com/atimes/Central_Asia/CEN-01-190714.html

Make sure to read the entire article. There is no way the rebels would have deliberately targeted a civilian airliner, and a lot of reasons for the Kiev regime to do so in order to blame Russia.

With tensions inside the Ukrainian Government there will likely be leaks about what has happened. Certainly the confiscation of the air traffic control tapes should make one highly suspicious.

Pepe has also made the point - on his Facebook page - that there are no witnesses or photographs indicating a missile trail that should be obvious from the BUK. Below is a video demonstration of the missile system.  Notice the smoke trails:

MH17: Weathering the Propaganda Firestorm


The level of unsubstantiated propaganda being directed against Russia regarding the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has reached unprecedented lows.

There is tangible desperation across Western media establishments, their political spheres, and within their corporate-financier funded policy think-tanks as they attempt to reassert their agenda and narrative not only upon the crisis in Ukraine, but upon the entire world as their weakening grip becomes apparent to all.

The dangerous desperation emanating from the West follows the latest in a series of growing failures - the previous and most comparable being the loss of its proxy war against Syria and the desperate criminal conspiracy they unleashed in a failed attempt to save it.
---------------------------------------

Headlines followed in the same politically motivated, factually disfigured manner as they did in regards to Syria:
The "game changer" indeed - just like NATO's false flag sarin gas attack in Damascus was supposed to be at a time Syria's government would benefit the least from it, and when NATO would have benefited the most. Again, absolutely no evidence is being provided for public scrutiny - the public is simply being told that it "exists," just as it "did" in Syria's case. The hysterical accusations being made by Western politicians and the media echoing them in editorial after editorial is behavior unbecoming of a global order that passes itself off as guided by the "rule of law," "democracy," "justice," or just plain human decency.

Stop with the Ridiculous Russia Bashing and Get your Facts Straight - Letter to Christine Milne, Leader of the Australian Greens Party


The following letter was sent to the leader of the Australian Greens party in response to her views appearing in this link. I also heard her speak in a similar fashion on radio. I just hope someone is paying attention here.

EMAIL:

As an online News Blogger, and researcher, I know that your views on Russia's involvement in Ukraine, and with the Malaysian Airlines shootdown, are unfounded. The term factually incorrect comes to mind.

Your erroneous views are most likely due to the advice you have been given. Your advisers obviously have no clue.

 Firstly, your view that Russia is to blame for what is happening in Ukraine, with your comment about reacting to their 'going into Crimea', grossly distorts what actually happened.

The facts are that the corrupt pro-Russian Government in Kiev was overthrown by a US sponsored coup that included anti-Russian fascists, oligarchs, and actual neo-Nazi types (you can view videos of them), and that subsequently the semi-autonomous region of Crimea VOTED to separate itself from the newly installed regime. This is what is called 'self determination' in places like Kosovo, where it suits western interests.

The reasons for Crimea, and other regions of Ukraine, separating from the Kiev Government are abundantly clear - it is the presence of the anti-Russian fascists who are on record as wanting to rid Ukraine of the Russian speaking people in the East. This was one of the first calls coming from the Kiev Government - to ban the Russian language - and although soon retracted, was taken to heart in the East and South of the country. The multitude of other threats and strong arm tactics against those that opposed the coup, plus the right wing massacre of the anti-Kiev protesters in Odessa, led to a strong determination to resist their control.

I would not blame the Government of Russia for aiding the rebels in their fight against Kiev considering the circumstances. The various proposals at negotiating a peace, that would have included elections that would have removed the largely unpopular neo-Nazis, and other fascists installed in Government positions, were scuttled. Having Poroshenko as the head of the Kiev regime did not change anything.

And as for the MH 17 shootdown itself, you have stepped way out of line, along with our no good Prime Minister, in admonishing the reactions of the Russians.

It is because of the war, and efforts to vilify resistance to the Kiev Government, that the Russians, plus the rebels in Ukraine, will not outright accept any claims made by their present enemies. In fact we should be extremely cautious about ANY claims being made by all sides regarding this issue, and mindful that our western side lied shamelessly during the Crimean separation claiming that the Russians had 40,000 troops and tanks on the border whereas an NBC News crew travelling the area at the time found no signs of a military build up. The Russians pointed out that the NATO pictures of troops and tanks were from an exercise that occurred the year before.

The problem you face here is that there WILL be false information put out about what happened. The Russians and Ukrainian rebels could easily be the victims of such a ploy (that includes fake radio communications and imagery) rather than the perpetrators. This scenario would explain their present reactions to the accusations levelled against them.

You cannot simply assume that Russia or the rebels are at fault for the shootdown of MH17. IF they are at fault then the shootdown would have been accidental - just as the US shootdown of the Iranian airliner in 1988 was accidental. You have already wrongly assumed that the Russian Government had the leading role in causing the break up of Ukraine whereas it was the nature of the coup in Kiev that facilitated the rise of the resistance/self-determination movement.

If you have research staff that can type into a Google Search engine you will be able to VERIFY everything I have mentioned here. I'll include one link below that gives you a small window into what happened regarding the Kiev coup and how the actions of those fighting against the Government are REACTIONARY. ie They are not the true instigators of the trouble:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWkfpGCAAuw&list=UUEHsSWvrGVSIA63OV3J6vhA

You should also consider watching this video that includes raw footage that clearly shows what happened in the Odessa Massacre:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4dJRnI-X8Q&list=UUEHsSWvrGVSIA63OV3J6vhA  

As a News Blogger I always check the facts when it comes to situations like these. You and your advisers should start doing the same.

ps. I was very very unhappy to hear what you had said about the Ukraine Crisis - hence the tone of this response.  Please take what I have said here very seriously. People are being killed, once again, for no good reason. If there were more people challenging the western corporate/government media discourse, things would be different.

In the second half, Max interviews Mark McGowan, aka 'The Artist Taxi Driver,' about the UK employment numbers, Kate Middleton's kitchen, the Queen's new golden carriage and other austerity stories.



The Artist Taxi Driver's rant is gold !!

Ukraine Caught Trying to 'Frame Russia' for Shooting Down Malaysia Flight MH17?




Apparently the digital time stamp on the video 'proving the rebels' shot down MH17 occurred BEFORE the shootdown.

And ... Bombshell! Proof That Malaysia Flight MH17 Was Diverted Over Ukraine War Zone!




And ... Ukrainian Army with Surface to Air missiles near Donetsk on July 5th (see 0:50)



And ...

Militias do not have Ukrainian Buk missile system — Ukraine general prosecutor
 
Militias in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics do not have Ukrainian air defense missile systems Buk and S-300 at their disposal, Ukrainian Prosecutor-General Vitaly Yarema told Ukrainian Pravda newspaper on Friday.
 
“After the passenger airliner was downed, the military reported to the president that terrorists do not have our air defense missile systems Buk and S-300,” the general prosecutor said. “These weapons were not seized,” he added.
 
Ukrainian Interior Minister Anton Gerashchenko said on July 17 that the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 airliner had been downed by an air defense missile system Buk.

I'm starting to have doubts about the official story. Nevertheless there is the audio of alleged rebels talking about their involvement in the shootdown and there is a video that shows a BUK missile system being transported on a truck allegedly moving into Russia:

Are We Alone in the Universe?


With the shuttle mission grounded for good, NASA scientists are now searching for signs of life on other planets. Technological advances in telescopes and cameras have brought the answer to the question within the reach of mankind. This week, some of NASA's top thinkers held a panel discussion to talk about their efforts in the search for life.



If you are interested in data analysis and science/logic it seems that we are certainly not at all alone in the universe, and not the only source of intelligent life.

Malaysia Airlines MH17 Shootdown - Background to the Ukraine War that Led to the Tragic Incident


Although it appears the Ukrainian rebels accidentally shot down the Malaysian aircraft there's been a lot of (renewed) Russia bashing subsequent to the event. For the record, the resistance in Eastern Ukraine, and Crimea (initially), came about because of a western backed coup in Kiev that installed anti-Russian fascists, oligarchs, plus neo-Nazis, that replaced the corrupt pro Russian Gov. The neo-Nazi stuff is FACTUAL. You can see pictures and video showing their backgrounds.

One must remember that after Crimea voted itself independent, Eastern Ukraine tried to do the same, which led to the present war. The rebels won't lay down their weapons BECAUSE of the hostile Government in Kiev.


The following clip contains important information to help understand the entire situation. It explains why the Russian speaking rebels 1. declared independence, and took over regional gov buildings, and 2. why they are resisting attempts by the Ukraine military to kick them out:



The US and its allies, via the mainstream media, always blame Russia for their involvement in the conflict, but they forget to talk about the coup in Kiev and their hand in it.

Furthermore, the fears of the eastern Ukrainians are well founded. This is what happened with that massacre in Odessa, which was outright murder, and not simply an out-of-control building fire:



At the time of writing the rebels seem like the most likely source for the missile, with alleged intercepted communications admitting responsibility, although some details raise questions about this initial account.
