´Bring those b******* to justice´: Ukrainian
PM launches furious attack on Russia -
but Moscow claims Kiev shot down MH17
´because they thought it was Putin´s jet´

Daily Mail [UK], by Simon Tomlinson*

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk today called on world powers to support his government in bringing to justice ´those b****** who committed this international crime´ after a passenger plane was shot down over his country. Rescue workers, police and even coal miners are combing the site where a Malaysian Airlines jet crashed after being shot from the sky by a surface-to-air missile, scattering wreckage and bodies across the Ukrainian countryside. Ukraine accused pro-Russian separatists of shooting down the plane which was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur with 298 people on board, while the Russian media today blamed everyone but pro-Moscow rebels

Why was this plane flying over a known war zone where other planes were recently shot down?

Sounds like Putin and the Obamboozler have been sharing the same excuse book... and maybe even a milkshake or two...

Three-Day Truce to
Begin at Midnight
Agence France-Presse, by Staff*    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/10/2014 3:44:10 PM     Post Reply
A new 72-hour ceasefire in Gaza has been agreed between Israel and the Palestinians following mediation by Egypt, a Palestinian official said Sunday. Israel confirmed Sunday evening that the 72-hour truce will go into effect at midnight. According to Channel 2, the Israeli delegation will head to Cairo for talks Monday morning, if the fire from Gaza does indeed cease and the night is a quiet one. Hamas played a double game Sunday, with its negotiators reportedly agreeing to a ceasefire in Cairo, and its terrorists in Gaza launching missiles at Israel. Israel insists that it will not negotiate under fire,

ISIS Flags Flown in Israeli-Arab Cities

As the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) continues its bloody conquest of Iraq and Syria and begins invading Lebanon, all in the name of establishing a global Sunni Muslim caliphate system, signs of support for the extremist are being seen among Israel´s Arab citizens. [Snip] The flags have been seen flying among both Muslim and Christian Arab citizens of Israel, an ironic move given that ISIS in Iraq has emptied cities of their Christian populations by issuing them an ultimatum either to convert to Islam, pay non-Muslim jhizya taxes - or die. In response to the widespread photos of ISIS flags flying in Nazareth, Ali Salem,

The Palestinian Arab delegation in Cairo--comprising of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Fatah (Palestinian Authority) members--have tentatively agreed to a cease-fire, PA state television reports Sunday. [Snip] The announcement has sparked some skepticism, as senior Hamas official Ezzat al-Rishq, who is involved in the Cairo talks, told AFP on Sunday that "the possibility of negotiations to succeed is weak. It is possible that the Palestinian delegation will leave to consult its leaders any minute." Hamas and Islamic Jihad have, additionally, broken no fewer than six "humanitarian ceasefires" so far, including one bilateral agreement brokered by

A beautiful mosaic of ancient religions, cultures and languages in the Middle East is being systematically destroyed. Until now, the world has watched mutely. When Muslims were threatened with genocide in Bosnia, the international community acted in concert to prevent the campaign against them developing into a full-scale pogrom. I went there myself, as part of an effort to bring relief supplies to all those who were affected. I was also present when millions of Afghan refugees poured into Pakistan after the Soviet invasion of that country. Once again, Western countries, Christian, Islamic and secular organisations were at the

It now seems the entire British media are referring to the terrible casualties in Gaza as "Palestinian civilians". This seems to be following the BBC´s highly slanted lead. Since when has Gaza had an army, navy and air force? They are all civilians. [Snip] That puts it alongside the Provisional IRA, Al Qaeda, AQAP, AQIM, Taliban, Isis, Al Nusrah and Nigeria´s Boko Haram. In other words, all terrorists are civilians. They have enlisted in no known armed forces, wear no uniforms and carry no badges of rank. They are deliberately indistinguishable from the 90 per cent who just want to

The IDF is continuing Operation Protective Edge, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced Sunday. [Snip] "The campaign will continue until the mission is completed: an extended period of quiet in the South," he added, referring to Hamas escalation. "We said when the operation began and throughout the process: it will take time and patience." Israel will also not acquiesce to international pressure, he said. "Israel will not negotiate under fire," Netanyahu stressed. "Israel will continue to act in any way [necessary] to change the current situation and bring peace to all its citizens. We stand together in unity and determination

Palestinians threaten to leave Cairo truce talks on Sunday with Palestinians issuing ultimatum to Israeli delegation to attend Cairo talks. Palestinian negotiators warned they would leave Cairo if an Israeli delegation did not show up for truce negotiations on Sunday, with one official setting a 1300 GMT deadline. [Snip] The Palestinian negotiators had earlier said an Israeli delegation was expected in Cairo on Sunday, based on an invitation by Egyptian mediators. An Israeli official told AFP that talks could not take place until Palestinian rocket fire came to a halt. The Palestinian delegation warned they would leave the Egyptian capital

The former Chief of the Australian Army, professor Peter Leahy, has warned that Australia needs to prepare itself for a century-long war, both overseas and at home, against radical Islamic militants. [Snip] ´We´ve even had bomb plots here in Australia and thanks to police and intelligence agencies, have been able to stop those threats. ´But terrorists only have to be lucky once.´ Mr Leahy told The Weekend Australian that the war against radical Islam was likely to last for nearly 100 years. ´Australia is involved in the early stages of a war which is likely to last for the rest

A Victorian chicken farmer who battled local council bureaucracy for five years says he hopes the multimillion dollar film being made about his life will inspire others ´to take no nonsense´. Allan Marsh, better known as Swampy in his local community, helped the decimated Little Penguins of Middle Island, off the coast of Warrnambool in south-west Victoria, survive after his faithful maremma dog Oddball began protecting them in 2006.

Prince Harry has revealed his experience of the ´horrendous´ nature of war during his two tours of Afghanistan, in which he encountered children who had died from roadside bombs and soldiers lying on the battlefield. The Royal, who is a Captain in the Army, regularly flew injured personnel and civilians to the hospital at the Camp Bastion military base during his second tour of the country from 2012 to 2013 when he served as an Apache helicopter pilot.

Egyptian and Palestinian delegates have reportedly reached a new agreement on a draft cease-fire proposal that will be submitted to Israel on Saturday, a Palestinian official told AFP. [Snip] Under the reported terms, Hamas would in effect enact a unity deal signed in April with the PA, entrusting the group´s demands for a port in Gaza to the Ramallah-based government for negotiations at a later point with Israel. Egyptian sources who are intimately familiar with the discussions are quoted by Arab media sources as saying that the sides have reached verbal agreements on a truce that would go into effect

Peace has to start with Israeli and Palestinians leaders, namely Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, US President Barack Obama told the New York Times´ Foreign Affairs columnist Thomas Friedman. [Snip] Obama worried that Netanyahu´s high approval ratings--which have jumped in recent weeks in the wake of Israel´s month-long operation in Gaza--could prevent him from making the difficult concessions needed to reach a long-term deal: "If he doesn’t feel some internal pressure, then it’s hard to see him being able to make some very difficult compromises," like the issue of settlements, the president said.

For me, watching the Food Network was always an easy escape from the stresses of daily life. There was just something calming about watching chefs in action, and this network had perfected Zen cooking. They’d often use a natural-light filter that made food appear delectable, as if the chefs were blissfully cooking their culinary delights in the sunlit designer kitchen of a tastefully decorated, impeccable home somewhere in the Hamptons. (Well, with Ina Garten, that actually is the case.) I’ve never been anywhere near a sunlit designer kitchen in the Hamptons, but I still found it all oddly soothing. I’d

Bill and Hillary Clinton are making the most of their downtime in the Hamptons. The former U.S. President and his ex-Secretary of State wife were pictured this morning enjoying a stroll on the beach in Amagansett, where they are paying $100,000 to rent an $18million five-bedroom property for three weeks. The couple, who were accompanied by their dogs as well as a Secret Service agent, were dressed in very casual clothes, with President Clinton decked out in black SoulCycle shorts and green sneakers and his wife in a bright blue muumuu and slippers. Mrs Clinton, 66, kept her eyes shaded

Barack Obama deliberately set out to lose the war in Iraq, and he did. He defied the advice of his joint chiefs of staff to secure America’s formidable military presence and keep 20,000 troops in country, and left Iraq to its own devices and the tender mercies of Iran. In doing so, he betrayed every American and Iraqi who gave his life to create a free Iraq and keep it out of the clutches of the terrorists. Iraq is now a war zone dominated by the terrorist forces of the Islamic State, whose rise Obama’s policies fostered. Both his secretaries

Speaking at the U.S.-Africa Summit earlier this week, Secretary of State John Kerry had a bit of astonishing advice for African leaders. While noting that Africa faces a starvation problem, he also admonished its leaders not to create more farms. The reason? Adding more farms would contribute to “global warming.” Yeah, he really said that: “Certain agricultural processes can actually release carbon pollution and actually contribute to the problem in the first place. It’s a twisted circle. Always complicated. But we also know that there are certain ways to change that. For example, rather than convert natural areas to new farmland, a process

Political conservatives are the greatest threat to the nation, President Barack Obama suggested in a kid-glove interview with the New York Times. “The president mused, the biggest threat to America — the only force that can really weaken us — is us,” said the interviewer, Thomas Friedman. “Our politics are dysfunctional… societies don’t work if political factions take maximalist positions,” said Obama, who repeatedly claims to be a moderate stymied by the GOP’s supposed obstructionism and radicalism. “And the more diverse the country is, the less it can afford to take maximalist positions,” Obama added.

PRESIDENT OBAMA was right to order military action to prevent a potential genocide in northern Iraq and to stop forces of the al-Qaeda-derived Islamic State from advancing on Baghdad or the Kurdish capital of Irbil. However, the steps the president authorized on Thursday amount to more of his administration’s half-measures, narrowly tailored to this week’s emergency and unconnected to any coherent strategy to address the conflagration spreading across the Middle East. While U.S. airstrikes and drops of supplies may prevent the terrorist forces from massacring the Yazidi sect or toppling the pro-Western regime in Kurdistan, Mr. Obama lacks a plausible

President Barack Obama will embark on a previously planned two-week vacation to Martha´s Vineyard tomorrow regardless of the violence in Iraq and Gaza. Even as the first military airstrikes he authorized in northern Iraq were carried out Friday, Obama did not cancel the trip. (Snip)In 2009, Obama remained on vacation in his native of Hawaii after a man aboard a Detroit-bound flight tried to detonate a bomb on Christmas. Obama also continued on with Martha´s Vineyard vacations in 2010 as rebels in Libya were on the verge of ousting their government, and last year when Egypt´s military overthrew the country´s

A terrifying jihadist group is conquering and butchering its way across big swaths of Iraq and Syria. Planes are falling out of the sky on what seems like a weekly basis. Civilians are being killed in massive numbers in the Israel-Gaza conflict. Others are falling prey to Ebola in West Africa. The world, in short, is falling apart. That’s how it feels, at least, to those of us who sit at a blessed remove from the death and destruction, but who are watching every bloody moment of it via cable news and social media. It raises an important question: In an

A 40-year political career came to a close after Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie lost his bid for a second term in a stunning primary-election defeat by a fellow Democrat and state senator who defied party leadership to challenge the incumbent. A second intraparty fight for U.S. Senate was too close to call. State Sen. David Ige, once seen as an underdog, cruised to a decisive 35 percentage point win in Saturday´s primary after being dramatically outspent by Abercrombie, who also had high-profile endorsements including President Barack Obama. Ige said his win "proves that people power can be money power, especially in Hawaii."
