Malaysia Airlines plane crash: How
do we deal with a pathological
liar like Vladimir Putin?

Telegraph [UK], by Con Coughlin

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/18/2014 7:43:42 AM

We should not be surprised that Moscow is categorically rejecting the accusation that it was responsible for the Malaysian airline disaster. For the default position of Russian President Vladimir Putin when confronted with some unpalatable truth is to tell a bare-faced lie. Remember how, when Russian Spetsnaz special forces were rampaging through Crimea earlier this year, Mr Putin told a Russian press conference that there were no Russian forces in Ukraine? Well, now we are dealing with a similar situation following the airline disaster, with the Russian leader trying to shift the blame for the crash on to anyone but

Comments:
To answer your question, Con, I´d say the same way the US should be dealing with Obama, except we don´t seem to be very good at that.

Yet.

Dittos, OP. Putin, like Obama, has deceived many. Bush 43 looked into his eyes. I have cut him some slack in my posts. The deference on my part was more to the Russian people, who should rightfully retake a prominent place among the community of nations, and not to Putin himself. Many gave Putin leeway as he tried to deal with the rampant corruption and syndicated crime in the wake of Boris Yeltsin. They were all too aware of his KGB background, but hoped even that might help him get things under control. The motivation was not support for yet another iron-fisted dictator, but for a strong leader to help a nation get back on its feet.

However, autocrats eventually become intoxicated with their power - absolute power corrupts absolutely - and take actions that expose their intent. This event and others in eastern Ukraine may be such for Mr. Putin. They remind us that there may be more "Soviet" left in him than we have been willing to admit. We could look away from Crimea and justify actions there as the need to protect a critical warm water port. But no more. Not this.

If Mr. Putin wishes to re-establish himself as a patriot and not just another dictator, he must "come clean" in this matter and make things right for the people of Ukraine, Russia, and the rest of the world.

Statins drug can double

The findings come just as doctors are being told to offer the cholesterol-lowering drugs to millions more people in a massive expansion of prescribing. [Snip] Last night experts called for an urgent review of the recommendations before statins are prescribed on a “mass basis”. The breast cancer study is funded by the US government National Cancer Institute and involves nearly 3,000 women. It found those who took statins over a period of 10 years or more had double the risk of breast cancer. Some experts also claim other, widely reported side effects, including diabetes, impotence, cataracts, muscle pains, mental impairment,

First Lady Michelle Obama has been at the forefront of the campaign to change school meals in America and fight childhood obesity. But can you force children to eat healthily? It´s almost lunchtime in the school canteen at Friendship Woodridge Elementary School in Washington DC. Today´s menu is potato ravioli, a romaine salad and whole wheat breadsticks, served with fat-free milk. For desert, a banana. "It´s a very healthy menu," says lunch lady Katrina Fitzgerald as she ladles a helping of ravioli on to a plate. "They used to complain but they don´t too much now, I think they´re used

Higher earthquake risk
for eastern US

A new US geological survey indicates that some parts of the US are at an increased risk of earthquakes, especially along the east coast. New seismic hazard maps updated for the first time since 2008 show highest risk west but also increased risk east. "The eastern US has the potential for larger and more damaging earthquakes than considered in previous maps and assessments," the report states. The East Coast experienced one of its largest quakes for 100 years in 2011. The 5.8 magnitude quake was centred on rural Virginia but was felt by hundreds of thousands of people, including in Washington DC.

Outrage as France become first country

France´s Socialist government provoked outrage today by becoming the first in the world to ban protests against Israeli action in Palestine. In what is viewed as an outrageous attack on democracy, Socialist Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said mass demonstrations planned for the weekend should be halted. [Snip] Thousands were set to march against the ongoing slaughter in Gaza, calling for an immediate end to hostilities in which civilians including many children have been killed. But Mr Cazeneuve fears there might be a repeat of the fights between ‘ultra’ Jewish vigilantes and pro-Palestinians which happened after a demonstration last Sunday.

Just a day after media reports warned that no progress was being made in negotiations between the P5+1 alliance of Western nations and Iran regarding that nation’s illegal nuclear weapons program, US Secretary of State John Kerry cited significant progress in a bid to set the state for an expected announcement of yet another reprieve for Iran’s nuclear program. “I have said and repeat,” Kerry told reporters in Vienna, “there has been tangible progress on key issues.” Iran´s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif backed Kerry up, telling reporters that enough progress has been made to justify an extension of the

Dangerous Escalation in Ukraine: Separatists

The situation in Ukraine may be even more dangerous and unstable than we feared. According to this report from the Russian media, the separatists widely blamed for shooting down Malaysia Airlines MH17 are in control not just of one Buk missile launcher but a whole regiment of them. The self-defense forces of Donetsk People’s Republic seized control of a Ukrainian anti-air military installation, RIA Novosti reports. [Snip] This report, from the end of last month, has had little play in the Western media, which has preferred to focus on reports from security sources that the rocket launchers (and tanks and

Malaysia Airlines disaster: The West

It might have seemed as if the rebellion by Russian separatists in Ukraine, fostered by Vladimir Putin, was a faraway war in a distant land. But when the passengers and crew of Flight MH17 flew into that war zone and became its latest victims, the global implications of the Ukrainian crisis became apparent. It is no longer “just” Russians and Ukrainians dying: as so often happens, an unstable region is putting the wider world at risk. Over the past few years, the West’s foreign policy has been marked by a sense of over-caution, even retreat. This is understandable. The death

So for the time being the shaky centre of Europe is holding. Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin are at least talking, while the Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko continues to show admirable restraint. But listen closely and it is hard not to hear the echoes of history in Europe’s collective failure to confront naked Russian aggression. For weeks now, the US--supported by Britain, to the irritation of many of our European allies--has been demanding tougher sanctions against Moscow, warning of what might happen if nothing was done to stop Putin giving heavy weapons to separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine.

Harrowing photos of dead or injured Palestinians kids are appearing everywhere. [Snip] Many of the photos being published under the Twitter hashtag #GazaUnderAttack feature children wailing, howling, covered in blood, battered, bruised and sometimes even dead. They all get retweeted an incredible amount, alongside broken-heart emoticons or phrases such as “Grieve for the children of Palestine” and statements like: “Every time I close my eyes, I see the innocent children of Palestine running, I hear them scream.” It all has the look and feel and sound of moral pornography, designed less to enlighten people about what is going in Israel-Gaza--war harms

Florida authorities have confirmed the first two cases of a painful mosquito-borne disease contracted in the United States. State health officials confirmed a Miami-Dade County female and a male in Palm Beach County have become the first two people to contract chikungya in the United States. Dozens of infections have previously been reported in Florida alone, according to the Tampa Bay Times, but these are the first two to have been contracted in the States.

It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years. For the rest of us, it has served as a liability and an irritation. Yesterday, it became a wholesale embarrassment. On the perpetual-campaign trail, the pattern is familiar. Trotting up to the podium, the president fist-bumps the audience’s stragglers and smiles a toothy and humble grin at those who catch his eye. While speaking, he responds to obsequy with obsequy — “I love you too!” he

Along with citing a list of moderate GOP governors with last names like Bush and Christie as potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates, "Arizona Sen. John McCain said Thursday that he believes Republicans can defeat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016, but only if they pass immigration reform." Calling Hillary Clinton the "odds-on favorite right now“ to win the White House in 2016, McCain added, "I expect it to be very competitive, except if we don’t enact some kind of comprehensive immigration reform, I do not see a way for us to really win a general election.”

The first lady told the kid chefs from each state, the District of Columbia, and three U.S. territories, "I need you guys to make your voices heard," because, she explained, "folks in Congress [are] trying to undo some of the progress that we’ve made to get healthier food into our schools."

Political pundits are divided about the merits of House Speaker John Boehner´s lawsuit against President Obama´s employer mandate. But should the chief executive be worried that two constitutional law experts — one a conservative, the other a liberal who voted for Obama — not only think the suit has merit but will likely succeed? The two backing Boehner and two constitutional law experts who oppose the suit testified Wednesday before the House Rules Committee.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated today that if President Barack Obama takes actions that exceed his constitutional authority, the House of Representatives has no plans to use its own constitutional authority to withhold funding from those actions. At his weekly press briefing, CNSNews.com asked Boehner: “You’ve said you disagree with calls to impeach the president over abuse of power via executive actions. But under the Constitution the House actually has the power of the purse. So, if the President takes actions that exceed his Constitutional authority, will you withhold funding for those actions in the next must-pass

(Video) The Washington Free Beacon has put together a greatest hits compilation of the Democrats’ border security quotes. Why would the Democrats continuously insist that the border is secure? Perhaps because Republicans insist on having a secure border before discussing any type of immigration reform legislation. Democrats don’t think people will catch up to this at some point? The PR game that carried Obama – health care lies and all – to the White House is showing significant signs of incompetent wear and tear

Gay marriage laws and court rulings against sexual-orientation discrimination are all signs that it’s time for the federal government to change its blood-donor policy for gay and bisexual men, authors said in a commentary released Saturday. The lifetime ban for blood donation by men who have sex with men (MSM) “may be perpetuating outdated homophobic perceptions,” wrote Dr. Eli Y. Adashi of Brown University and scholars I.
