This is Putin’s war, and this
disaster is his responsibility

Telegraph [UK], by Boris Johnson

Original Article

On the morning of July 3 1988, a passenger jet was taking off from the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas. It was an Airbus A300 operated by Iran Air, and on board were 290 people including 66 children.[Snip] They turned on their transponder--in accordance with normal practice--so that it emitted a “squawk code” identifying the aircraft as civilian. The crew was experienced, and at all times maintained communication, in English, with air traffic control. It was a tragedy for all concerned that on that same morning, a state-of-the-art US warship, the USS Vincennes, was lying more or less beneath them

Good article. Putin simply admitting that he or someone that should have been under his control screwed up would go a long way to assuage the anger.

Remember also who was POTUS on July 3, 1988. In this case and in the case of KAL-007, Reagan showed how it should be done.

House Republicans have passed legislation to shut down a program by President Barack Obama granting deportation relief to immigrants brought here illegally as kids, with many calling the bill a dead-end as the Senate leaves for summer break. [Snip] It also would block Obama from awarding work permits to other immigrants here illegally. The bill was supported by conservatives who demanded it as their price for backing a separate measure dealing with the crisis of unaccompanied minors flooding the border. The Senate has already adjourned for Congress´ summer recess so neither bill stands a chance of becoming law. As CBS

A Sierra Leone cyclist who ´vanished´ from the Commonwealth Games in an apparent bid to avoid going back to his Ebola-stricken country has been found - but several of his teammates do not want to return home. The plea from the athletes was made as Sierra Leone sportstars failed to turn up for four separate events, sparking fears that even more of the country´s athletes could be going missing. It comes as the World Health Organisation issued a warning about the epidemic of Ebola in West Africa - which they now say has killed more than 700 people in four countries.

Biden frequently makes same-day trips on the plane as well, a Secret Service agent reportedly told Kessler. ´ "The Air Force Two guys pull their hair

The Third Taper Tantrum has been postponed, perhaps. It has not been averted. The US Federal Reserve is preparing to tighten. Dallas Fed chief Richard Fisher said today that rates may rise early next year: “we are closer to lift-off than the market assumed we were, sometime late in 2015. I believe we moved that forward significantly,” he told CNBC. Nomura, Morgan Stanley and HSBC all think the dollar is poised for a long secular rally. This will expose which EMU crisis states have really recovered, and which emerging markets have genuinely progressed beyond boom-bust credit cycles. This is the most important development

A petition being circulated online with the hopes of forcing the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHCR) into investigating war crimes perpetuated by Hamas in the Gaza Strip has attracted over 12,000 signatories to date. The petition, started by Oxford University student Eylon Aslan-Levy calls for the United Nations to "Urgently investigate serious violations of international humanitarian law committed by Hamas in the Gaza Strip", citing the indiscriminate firing of missiles into civilian population centres, as well as using Palestinian children as human shields, and more. The news comes as the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations called on the

Israel has carried out fresh attacks on Gaza and militants have launched more rockets into Israel as a hunt continues for a missing Israeli soldier. Palestinian officials said 55 people had died in Israeli strikes on Saturday, most in Rafah, where the soldier, Hadar Goldin, went missing. A series of rocket attacks into Israel was reported on Saturday morning. Later Israel sent messages to Palestinians in northern Gaza saying that they could return home. "We have told Beit Lahia residents that they may return to their homes. We advised them to avoid explosives placed by Hamas across the area", the Israel Defence Forces tweeted.

Israel will not send envoys to Gaza truce negotiations in Egypt on Saturday as planned, an Israeli official said, accusing Hamas of misleading international mediators. "Hamas is not interested in an accommodation," the official said on condition of anonymity. An Egyptian-brokered ceasefire on Friday broke down within hours on Friday. [Snip] Gazan militants emerged on Friday morning from a tunnel into Israeli territory, under deconstruction by the IDF, less than ninety minutes deep into a planned 72-hour cease-fire. One terrorist detonated a suicide vest, killing two Israeli soldiers; another abducted a third Israeli soldier, Hadar Goldin,

U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday called on Hamas to unconditionally release Second Lieutenant (Platoon Leader) Hadar Goldin, who is feared kidnapped in Gaza. [Snip] “I think it’s important to note that we have and I have unequivocally condemned Hamas and the Palestinian factions that were responsible for killing two Israeli soldiers and abducting a third minutes after a ceasefire was announced,” he said, according to the Guardian. “I want to make sure they are listening... That soldier needs to be unconditionally released as soon as possible,” he added. "I think it´s going to be very hard to put a ceasefire back together

The Foreign Office is urgently investigating reports that a soldier thought to have been captured by Hamas fighters in Gaza is a British Israeli. Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, 23, is believed to be from a family of Jewish immigrants and the third cousin of Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon. He disappeared when a humanitarian ceasefire brokered by the United States and the United Nations collapsed into more bloodshed just hours after it was supposed to take effect. Reports of the kidnapping provoked a furious backlash from Israel, with former deputy defence minister, Danny Danon saying: ´If we don´t get the soldier

The White House has condemned an attack by Hamas terrorists on IDF forces, in which two soldiers were killed and another feared abducted, as a "barbaric" violation of a humanitarian ceasefire which began just hours before. Second Lieutenant (Platoon Leader) Hadar Goldin, 23, from Kfar Saba went missing during a fierce firefight on the outskirts of Rafah in Gaza. Following the attack, Israel announced that the truce was over. "This is an outrageous action and we look to the rest of the world to join us in condemning it," White House Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken told MSNBC television.

An enterprising blogger´s diligent spadework has revealed the truth behind an Israeli ´massacre´ that never was. (H/T Jonathan Foreman) According to the Hamas version of events--widely promulgated in the media by ITN, the Telegraph and the Belfast Telegraph--an Israeli airstrike on a crowded market place during a partial ceasefire in the Shijaiyah neighbourhood of Gaza City on July 30th, 2014 was responsible for the deaths of 17 people, including blue-helmeted photojournalist Rani Rayan. However as Thomas Wictor has incontrovertibly demonstrated using close analysis of film footage of the incident, the deaths were not caused by Israeli shrapnel but by secondary

A Hamas attack on IDF soldiers in southern Gaza, which occurred an hour and a half after the start of a humanitarian truce, ended with the suspected kidnapping of a soldier, the IDF said Friday. [Snip] Terrorists emerged from a tunnel shaft, and a suicide bomber detonated himself in the vicinity of soldiers. Heavy exchanges of fire ensued, before one of the IDF soldiers was kidnapped, a senior army source said. The IDF said the incident occurred at 9:30 a.m., but a spokesman for Hamas´s military wing claimed the terrorists came out of the tunnel and took part in the ensuing

In an unusual breach of decorum, even for the divided Congress, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi chased Rep. Tom Marino across the House floor, taking offense at comments by the Pennsylvania Republican during debate on the border funding bill Friday night."We don´t have law and order," Marino began as he wrapped up his comments on the border supplemental. "My colleagues on the other side don´t want to do anything about it." "You know something that I find quite interesting about the other side?

The United Nations slammed Israel for possibly committing war crimes in its fight against Hamas — and then backed that accusation by suggesting the Jewish nation ought to be sharing its Iron Dome defensive technology with the very terror group it’s fighting. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said to members of the media at an “emergency” meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council that Israel was falling short in its duty to protect citizens in the Gaza Strip from getting killed by its rockets. “There is a strong possibility that international law has been violated, in a

That was the most astonishing moment of today’s galling Obama press conference. President Obama had earlier lectured journalists how to do their jobs, ripped Republicans for doing their jobs, and chided everyone within earshot for not wishing him a happy birthday yet. After that descent into pre-teen self-absorption, the president was asked about whether CIA chief John Brennan had lied to Congress under oath when he said that the agency had never spied on senators and staff who were investigating the CIA’s enhanced interrogations of a very few al Qaeda terrorists. Obama glided past the actual question, other than voicing

An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress said Thursday that President Obama’s strategy for sizing the armed services is too weak for today’s global threats. The National Defense Panel called on the president to dump a major section of his 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and write a broader strategy that requires the military to fight on multiple fronts at once. It also said the shrinking U.S. armed forces, which are being downsized to fit that strategy and budget cuts, is a “serious strategic misstep on the part of the United States.” The forces’ numbers spelled out in Mr. Obama’s

Bill O’Reilly obviously doesn’t care for how President Obama and the Democrats are running things, but tonight he also had some tough words for the GOP. He asked guest Kate Obenshain why the Republicans continue to remain in the muck with the left and try to “destroy one another” instead of getting things done. O’Reilly asked, “Shouldn’t they rise above it?” Obenshain argued that it’s Democrats doing all the nasty politicking and name-calling, as well as the ginning up of impeachment. O’Reilly, however, noted some conservatives are bringing it up and said there’s “plenty of hate on both sides.” Obenshain objected, “No,

Even the American left is finally realizing that this is the strangest administration in living memory. Obama simply has no real precedents, which is why he seems so utterly foreign. American presidents tend to be pragmatists, but Obama is locked into a simpleminded ideology of Good vs. Evil. Obama is Good, and anybody who disagrees with him is Evil. Much of this oddity stems from the president’s personality, which many people have described as a mix of major narcissism, borderline personality disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder. Personality disordered people can be very functional in their jobs.

(Video) Normally, the Congressional votes are about as exciting as watching paint dry on growing grass, but when House Representative Tom Marino accused the Democrats of not being brave enough to pass immigration reform when they controlled the Congress, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi jumped up and came at the guy! Marino struck a nerve by pointing out that the Democrats owned the entire Congress and White House for two years and did nothing about illegal immigration. Nancy Pelosi then crept up on Marino and began taunting him. Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., said it best: “What is she

(Video) The Democrats thought it would be a good idea to invite Professor Charles Tiefer, a fierce critic of the GOP’s lawsuit against President Obama, to testify against the creation of a Special Counsel for the IRS scandal. They were wrong. Trey Gowdy’s tough and incisive arguments put Tiefer on the defensive, making it difficult for the Harvard Law grad to answer even basic questions: “Would you seat a juror, in a trial, who referred to your client as an obscene body part?” “I really have trouble to giving you an answer except that—“ “Well, then you would starve to death

Last week, Arizona executed Joseph Wood. The procedure took nearly two hours and Friday, a Fox 10 reporter revealed that executioners had to give Wood 15 doses of lethal drugs. The Arizona Department of Corrections told reporter Troy Hayden Friday that it gave Wood the drugs over the course of his execution. The revelation that it took 15 doses of the drugs revises earlier reports that Wood was only given two doses. In light of Wood’s death, Arizona plans to review its execution process, the department said. Wood’s execution drew widespread attention for both its long duration, and for conflicting reports that he gasped for air
