The Downing of Malaysia Flight 17
Sinister Pretext for War with Russia

By Mike Whitney 

"...The MSM doesn’t care about identifying the criminals who killed 298 passengers. Their job is to demonize Putin... 
And that’s exactly what they’re doing."

September 05, 2014 "ICH" - "Counterpunch" -  

The Obama administration has failed to produce any hard evidence that pro-Russia separatists were responsible for the downing of Malaysia Flight 17. The administration’s theory – that the jetliner was downed by a surface-to-air missile launched from rebel territory in east Ukraine – is not supported by radar data, satellite imagery, eyewitness testimony or forensic evidence.  

In fact, there is no factual basis for the hypothesis at all. It’s merely politically-motivated speculation that’s been repeated endlessly in the media to shape public opinion. 

The preponderance of evidence suggests a different scenario altogether, that is, that MH17 was shot down by Ukrainian [jet] fighters in an effort to frame the pro-Russia separatists and demonize Russia by implication.  

This is precisely why the MH17 story has vanished from all the major media for the last three weeks. It’s because the bloody fingerprints point to Obama’s puppet-government in Kiev.

So what are the facts? ...

The Insidious Power of Propaganda

Cameron: UK doesn’t need Assad’s permission to launch airstrikes in Syria   
Speaking at the start of the NATO summit in Wales.

Hang on a minute! In the quaint old days when international law meant something, to bomb a country without permission from its legally-recognized government, a UN member no less, and without being approved by the UN Security Council, was considered a war crime of aggression!   (Comment from Bruce)

Palestinian Leaders Seek Actions in Security Council and Court:  Israel’s 50-day war against Palestinians in Gaza was a “game changer” that persuaded the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, to shelve the already moribund American-sponsored peace talks and decide to join the International Criminal Court, even if that meant defying the United States, a senior Palestinian leader said.

Hamas urges Abbas to sign Rome Conventions to sue Israel:  Hamas movement called Friday on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to immediately sign Rome Conventions in order to sue Israel before international courts.

Israel issues tenders for 283 illegal settlement homes:  Israel said Friday it published tenders for 283 new homes in an illegal West Bank settlement, just days after announcing its biggest land grab on occupied Palestinian territory for three decades. 

Hang on a minute! Stealing this land from its Palestinian owners, in complete violation of international law, and precisely where Palestinians are seeking to establish a state, shows very clearly to me at least that Israel is not at all serious about ever allowing the "two State solution". What does it show to you?    (Comment from Bruce)

Wikileak Cables: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in Washington's Pocket Since 2006: It turns out that Ukraine's new President, Petro Poroshenko, has been working for the U.S. government since at least 2006, and they knew he was corrupt.

EU admits Putin’s comment on ‘storming Kiev’ taken out of context:  The EU has admitted that Vladimir Putin’s words about “taking Kiev in two weeks” had been “made public out of context,” said a spokeswoman for the European Commission President in a written response to The Wall Street Journal.

Obama is a Liar. Fake NATO Evidence. OSCE Confirms that No Russian Troops, No Tanks, have Crossed the Russia-Ukraine Border

Global Research, September 04, 2014

The following report is a slap in the face to president Obama and his NATO partners meeting today in Newport Wales.  
Obama confirmed on September 3 that “Russian combat forces with Russian weapons in Russian tanks” had been deployed in Eastern Ukraine.
That’s not only a Lie, it is Lie which could potentially precipitate humanity into a Third World War.
Observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) “have registered no troops, ammunition or weapons crossing the Russian-Ukrainian border over the past two weeks”...
