Russia must end
this heartless spectacle

Telegraph [UK], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/21/2014 5:16:08 AM

In the four days since Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 came down on the Ukrainian border, the basic facts of the situation have remained unchanged. The overwhelmingly likely scenario is that the plane was shot down by a missile, fired by pro-Russian separatists, who had received their armaments from the Kremlin (along, it transpired, with inadequate training in their use). [Snip] Mr Putin’s separatist lackeys have asserted their control of the crash site, harassing and intimidating the experts sent to inspect the wreckage. Victims’ bodies have been treated with shameful disregard, the property of the deceased picked through at will, the

Maybe Obama can bow to them or talk them to death? Or maybe Hillary can stop them huh?

Little question? Well, Washington Post and CNN were reporting that the jet ´crashed´ a couple of days after the event. Not shot down. Crashed. I wonder if they are convinced yet?

The crash no doubt happened as the result of an explosion in the center wing fuel tank. Why would they need to inspect the wreckage? Why is everybody so upset?

Anyone who doubts that it was the Russian military--not pro-Russian activists-- who shot the plane down is a fool.
Without a doubt, it was the Russian military, minus uniform emblems or in mufti, who shot down the plane. Does anyone Really think Putin would entrust multi-million dollar missile launcher to a bunch of yahoo rebels?
Does anyone really think rebels could be so quickly trained in the use of the missile launcher?
Spetsnatz was behind this.

It´s pretty much too late. The site has been severely compromised and most of the bodies moved. Imagine if we had a president who would have given Russia a stern warning to cop-operate the day it happened. Instead we have someone who sees his pre-packaged photo-ops as sacred, and breaking events as an interruption.

Holy Madness!, Mulatto Man

If you can´t see that Obama and his global drone killing campaign, his Syrian destabilization campaign, his chemical weapon killings, his Egyptian destabilization and murder campaign and his destruction of our southern border are behind the intentional murder of MH17 passengers in order to alter the calculus of his horror inducing spectacle of a Presidency .. I fear for your very soul ..

By your terms, #6, my soul must be in danger because I have read your comment twice and I can´t connect those dots. Maybe you can explain more specifically. Jumping from point 1 "global drone killing" to point 7 "intentional murder of MH17 passengers in order to alter the calculus of his...presidency" requires a leap I can´t make.

´The overwhelmingly likely scenario´. Which means they aren´t sure what happened. Then the article continues with the supposition that the statement noted is fact.

A good argument, but not all factual. I do agree that the separatists are acting like fools.

Too much propaganda from all sides.

Now everyone says it was a BUK missile but I read this system carries a blast fragmentation warhead. The missile doesn´t hit the plane it explodes in proximity and shreds it with shrapnel (62kg warhead). Parts of the downed plane show no signs of shrapnel.

"Overwhelming likely scenario"? Really? Says who? Why would Putin purposely murder 295 innocent people? To prove what? And who is using their lives to further pathetic, weak agendas? It ain´t Putin. If Ukraine and the EU thought shaming Putin would make him stop holding natural gas over their heads, why wouldn´t they be the overwhelming likely scenario?

What is sickening is the use of 295 innocent lives by each side to further their own agendas and egos. None of them cares a whit for the murdered innocents.

Sorry, North Korea Conspiracists:
Kim Jong Un Is Probably Just Sick
Time, by Hannah Beech    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 10/3/2014 12:14:02 PM     Post Reply
It has been precisely a month since corpulent young dictator Kim Jong Un disappeared from public view, prompting frenzied speculation about his health and the state of political play in North Korea. Kim was last seen at a Sept. 3 concert, ensconced in a red easy chair next to his wife, Ri Sol Ju. Late last month, the youthful marshal was a no-show at a meeting of North Korea’s rubber-stamp legislature. The cloistered nation’s state-run TV aired images of his seat at parliament—empty. But North Korea experts say that the likeliest reason is also the simplest: That the Supreme Leader

Three US Citizens Join
Kurdish Fight Against ISIS

Three US citizens are fighting in Syria, the British Daily Mail reports Friday. But unlike most foreign nationals, they are fighting against - not for - jihadists. One of the Americans has been identified as Jordan Matson (28) from Racine, Wisconsin, a spokesman for the private Pashmerga army, the Kurdish People´s Protection Units (YPG), said Thursday. Matson is a former US Army soldier now "fighting in the Jazaa area," the spokesman added - an area riddled by heavy fighting between Islamic State (ISIS) and Kurdish forces in northeast Syria. The US has not blacklisted the YPG as a terrorist organization, but it does

Hospitals across the country have been warned by the CDC about care methods regarding the Ebola virus, it has emerged. The CDC has published both an ´Algorithm for Evaluation of the Returned Traveler,´ as well as a ´Checklist for Patients Being Evaluated for Ebola Virus Diseasee (EVD) in the United States.´ Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan arrived in Dallas on September 20 to visit and fell ill a few days later. His sister, Mai Wureh, identified him as the infected man in an interview with The Associated Press. A Dallas emergency room sent Duncan home last week, even though he

A friend of Texas Ebola patient, Thomas Duncan, who saw the sick man the day he was taken into hospital apparently ´vomiting wildly´ has described his family´s ordeal in isolation. And, shockingly, three days after CDC officials visited him in the family´s apartment, 43-year-old Aaron Yah revealed he had not received an order to remain indoors or any advice on how to cope. Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Mr Yah said: ´The CDC came on Tuesday, the day it was confirmed Thomas had Ebola. They told me that the children should not go to school until 17 October.

Climate change is even deadlier than ebola according to the editor of one of the world´s oldest and most distinguished medical journals. Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of the BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal; established 1840), claims in her latest editorial: Deaths from Ebola infection, tragic and frightening though they are, will pale into insignificance when compared with the mayhem we can expect for our children and grandchildren if the world does nothing to check its carbon emissions. And action is needed now. Not all BMJ readers will necessarily agree with this assessment, Godlee concedes: When The BMJ started publishing articles on climate

Approaching half of all terrorist plots against Britain are still hatched in Afghanistan and Pakistan 13 years after British troops were sent to the country to destroy Al Qaeda, David Cameron revealed this morning. The Prime Minister, in Kabul on an unannounced visit to meet with the country’s new unity government, said Britain had ‘paid a very high price’ for liberating Afghanistan from the Taliban--with 453 British soldiers losing their lives. Mr Cameron claimed Britain and other allies had forced Al Qaeda out the region and the number of plots originating in the region had fallen. But he admitted the

A cameraman working for NBC News in Liberia has become the fourth American to contract the deadly Ebola virus. Freelance journalist Ashoka Mukpo, 33, is being flown privately back to the U.S. for treatment, while the network’s chief medical editor and correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman and the rest of her team are also returning and will be placed in quarantine for 21 days. Neither Snyderman nor the other members of her team are currently displaying any signs of the disease, said NBC. The infected journalist was only hired this week to be a second cameraman for Snyderman, who has been reporting on the

Former Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke has revealed that he recently tried to remortgage his house, but was turned down. Mr Bernanke, who was paid almost $200,000 a year leading the US central bank before stepping down in January, also suggested that banks are tightening lending too much following tough regulation that was brought in following the financial crisis. Speaking at a conference in Chicago on Thursday, Mr Bernanke told Mark Zandi of Moody’s Analytics: "Just between the two of us, I recently tried to refinance my mortgage and I was unsuccessful in doing so.” When the audience laughed, he

France is “finished” and Britons should get their investments out of the country quickly, according to the managing director of John Lewis. After a visit to Paris this week, Andy Street said he had “never been to a country more ill at ease ... nothing works and worse, nobody cares about it".

Health officials are under fire for their handling of America´s first Ebola case. Here are five questions being asked. Q: Why was Thomas Eric Duncan allowed to leave Liberia? A: Duncan had been in close contact with a 19-year-old woman who died of Ebola on Sept 16. [Snip] Q: Why was Duncan sent home from a Texas hospital with antibiotics?

The UK has called for urgent decisive action from the international community to deal with the growing Ebola epidemic in West Africa. Speaking at a conference in London co-hosted with Sierra Leone, UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond called for more financial aid, doctors and nurses. British nurse William Pooley, who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone, made an emotional appeal for more action. Leading charity Save the Children earlier warned that Ebola was spreading at a "terrifying rate", with the number of new recorded cases doubling every few weeks. It said that a rate of five new Ebola cases an hour

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
