Ukrainian Army Buk Missile Likely
Downed Malaysian Plane - Source

RIA Novosti [Moscow, Russia], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/17/2014 1:16:49 PM

Moscow - A Ukrainian army battalion of Buk air defense systems was deployed near the city of Donetsk a day before the crash of a Malaysian passenger plane on Thursday, making the downing of the aircraft by one of the missiles highly probable, an expert source said. "According to reconnaissance data, a Ukrainian army battalion of Buk air defense systems was deployed near Donetsk on Wednesday morning,” the source said. The source added that armed militia fighting Kiev-led forces in eastern Ukraine does not have Buk systems, which are capable of shooting down aircraft flying at altitudes up to 25 kilometers (82,000 feet).

Comments:
If the Russians are owning up to this terrorist act, let´s now see what 0bama does in respose. This is redundant, because the short answer is "nothing."

A Ukranian army battalion would NOT be the Russians.

Gee, I have a novel concept. We report that a plane was shot down.

Then we go back to normal programming and stop freakin´ guessing until some facts are actually found!!!!

I just turned on he TV, and all of the MSM networks have their non-stop broadcasts and numerous experts giving their guesses to what happened. And, if recent history is any sign, they will mostly all be wrong.

I am so sick of this!!!

Right, the Ukrainians may have done it but the war is Vladimir´s. Without the causes, there would be no effects. Putin owns this one.

And for that matter, Obama retreated from any thought of cutting this war off at the knees when he didn´t respond aggressively (or at all) to the Russians making a mockery of the Ukraine border months ago. The United States had a treaty to protect Ukraine after talking them into giving up their Nukes. Remember that?

Conclusion? It´s Obama first in line and then Putin.

Why did the plane use this flight path?
Malaysians are Muslims - domestic politics?
Did the Ukranians do it to provoke a response against Russia?
Muslims in Bosnia massacred their own to provoke outrage against Serbs- an old trick.
Don´t buy that Russian nationalists would be THAT STUPID.

I don´t believe the Ukrainians shot this plane down. If it was shot down, I believe it was the Russians. I don´t know that they meant to shoot it down, I just don´t think the Ukrainians did it. Especially because we´ve had hours of reports it was a missile from Russia and now suddenly we have Russia saying "nuh uh!!!!" Suspicious.

Agree that this is disinformation. Russia media certainly moves fast. Ukraine and Russia pointing fingers at each other. Should be able to tell quickly if any Buk Missile batteries were fired in Ukraine. What about the Ukraine separatists? Did they ever grab any missiles while they were in charge? Did Russia put them up to it? Does Russia have Buk missiles?

Nobody knows anything and they´re all running their mouths at light speed anyway.

I´m currently watching crash coverage on Russia Today (RT) on TimeWarner. They don´t know anything either, but the reporters aren´t as obnoxous and irrelevant as are the weasels here in the states, and there are no toilet paper and cat food commercials to endure. Plus, the Russian video coverage is pretty good -- although there´s no way to really know if it is truly from today´s crash, you know.

Earlier this week, Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion aka Snoopy Snoopy Poop Dog) said that he smoked weed last year in a White House bathroom. As it turns out, this grants him membership to an elite club of White House visitors who have, by their accounts, managed to use illicit drugs there. Below is a short history of those who say they joined a different sort of mile-high club during their White House visits. And since none of these claims are verified anyway (Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan has not responded to a request for comment about Snoop´s story), we've thrown in some of the most persistent rumors of drug use by the

Norway closed part of the airspace over its second city Bergen and tightened border checks on Saturday, police said, two days after the country upped security following a terror alert. Norway has been on high alert since Thursday, when its intelligence service (PST) said it had "recently received information that a group of extremists from Syria may be planning a terrorist attack" in the country. "Police have requested Avinor (Norway´s state-owned airport operator) to ban flights over central Bergen," said Gustav Landro, chief of staff at the Hordaland county police department.

Iraq crisis: Bishop of Baghdad

The vicar of the only Anglican church in Iraq has warned the end for Christians in the country appears “very near” as he appealed for help after a deadline set by Islamic militants to convert or be killed expired. Canon Andrew White, dubbed "the bishop of Baghdad" for his work at St George´s church in the capital, spoke after the ultimatum handed to Christians in the northern city of Mosul by the Islamic State of Iraq Levant (Isis) to convert, pay a tax or be put to death passed last week. For those Christians who did not comply with the decree by 19 July, Isis warned that "there is nothing to give them but the sword.” Many have since fled their homes

The Democrats´ impeachment

In an almost farcical twist on the recent political debate, the Obama White House has joined the Democratic fundraising apparatus in what appears to be a campaign to encourage Republicans to impeach the president. In the past 48 hours, first lady Michelle Obama, White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer, White House spokesman Josh Earnest, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and others have raised the specter of an Obama impeachment. The first lady was first to broach the subject, in a Thursday evening fundraising speech in Chicago. "If we lose these midterm elections,

President Obama´s weekly remarks : Hi, everybody. Our businesses have now added nearly 10 million new jobs over the past 52 months. The unemployment rate is at its lowest point since September 2008 — the fastest one-year drop in nearly 30 years. 401(k)s are growing, fewer homes are underwater, and for the first time in more than a decade, business leaders around the world have declared that the world’s number one place to invest isn’t China; it’s the United States of America — and our lead is growing.

With the fighting in Gaza intensifying daily, the ruling militant group Hamas is finding itself pushed to the limit. Trying to match Israel’s vast military might is an impossible task, and even finding the resources to launch rocket attacks against Israeli targets could only be achieved by heavy foreign investment. (Cut) The militant Palestinian organization has been a firm fixture on the United States’ Foreign Terrorist Organizations list since 1997. Hamas’ only hope is its neighbors in the Arab World. Hamas has two clear allies, according to Middle East experts: Qatar and Turkey. Both have given Hamas their public support and financial assistance

The Bible Baptist Church in Carthage, Missouri, invited National Guard personnel to be honored at its annual Vacation Bible School as part of “God’s Rescue Squad” — but the troops never showed because the military forbids them from attending such an event. “We were going to thank them for protecting our religious liberty,” Pastor Kent Hogan told Fox News. “It was more of a promotion for the military — to show the kids what the military does.” The church, which had held similar events earlier in the week for the local fire department, paramedics and the county sheriff’s department, was told that federal regulations

Washington - The Pentagon said on Friday the transfer of heavy-caliber multiple-launch rocket systems from Russia to Ukrainian separatists appeared to be imminent with the arms close enough to the border they could be handed over "potentially today." "We have indications that the Russians intend to supply heavier and more sophisticated multiple-launch rocket systems in the very near future," said Army Colonel Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, adding that the weapons were in the over-200mm range. Warren indicated the weapons had been seen getting closer to the border and the Pentagon believed a transfer was imminent and could

State transportation officials are moving forward with a controversial plan to add toll lanes to a busy stretch of the 405 Freeway in Orange County despite strong opposition from nearby cities who argue the so-called "Lexus lanes" will hurt average commuters. In December, Orange County Transportation Authority board members opted not to support the toll lanes in favor of a plan that would add one free lane in each direction, even though they were warned at the time that state officials may override the decision anyway. On Friday, the California Department of Transportation announced it was doing just that, arguing the toll lanes would

President Obama insists on flirting with impeachment even as House Republican leaders insist there’s no such possibility. Obama uses a passive-aggressive strategy that can be judged as a political maneuver, a personality disorder, or both. Secure in the knowledge that impeachment is not the same as removal from office, Mr. Obama brings up the topic on his own and with bold defiance. Martyrdom goes well with a Messiah complex and Mr. Obama’s speeches are a non-stop litany of depicting himself as a victim of Republicans. Already operating beyond the constitutional bounds of presidential power, Mr. Obama’s strategy is to push the bounds

He did not hit anyone, but he could have, the school officials told me. JJ was 4 at the time. I agreed his behavior was inappropriate, but I was shocked that it resulted in a suspension.

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences. The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. hey hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row

According to a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday, 33 percent of Americans think the president should be impeached and removed from office, compared with 65 percent who say they don’t support impeachment. Fifty-seven percent of Republicans say they support impeaching Obama, compared with just 35 percent of independent voters and 13 percent of Democrats. When asked about when Congress should attempt to impeach a president, 79 percent of Americans said it should only be used if there is evidence of a serious crime — such as

As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn´t wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama -- but not everyone is laughing. According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals. Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.

Washington – After several weeks in which the influx of tens of thousands of undocumented children illegally crossing the border into the United States has dominated the headlines, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush wrote an op-ed about the issue, calling for a change in how the children are handled after they are arrested - and also urging his fellow Republicans not to use this as an "excuse" to abandon comprehensive immigration reform. His Wall Street Journal opinion piece that published Wednesday evening is similar to the statement he released to CNN last week and is just the second time he´s
