Malaysia Airlines MH17 crash

22 July 2014 — Tigr.net

[Another interesting article on the downing of MH17. AS more information like this emerges, I’d say that it’s all pointing to the plane being hit by an air-to-air missile perhaps originating with the Kiev authorities. WB]

The news of the crash of the Malaysian “Boeing 777″ split the whole world in just a few minutes based on a predetermined basis: “believe / do not believe” that the blame lies with Russia / U.S.A. / Ukraine / Donetsk. While the international investigation has not even started, most viewers and opinion leaders very quickly – after just fifteen or twenty minutes after the news related to the disaster started to arrive – already knew who were to blame.

On Political Underpinnings of Strelkov’s Harassment

22 July 2014 — Cassad.eng

[This is an interesting article, if overlong, yet it gives a good idea of the dynamics of the situation, the conflicting personalities and rivalries between oligarchs and would-be political ‘commissars’. It also gives us a better understanding of the relationship between the Eastern Ukraine and Russia and especially, what the federalists expected Putin to do. WB]

On Political Underpinnings of Strelkov’s Harassment

As it is quite obvious, the campaign of harassing Mr. Strelkov that was launched yesterday did not come from nowhere and has a purely political genesis. Leaving Slavyansk, where as many expected he would perish together with his brigade, he became a so-called “wildcard”, which ruined a number of the previously existing scenarios.

Israeli soldier posts picture of Palestine child in the cross hairs

21 July 2014 — New Power

idf-soldier-child-in-crosshair-instagram-300x300An image is worth a thousand words. An Israeli soldier caused a public outcry when he posted an image of a Palestinian child in the cross hairs of his sniper rifle to Instagram. Such is the brutality of racism, genocide, imperialism. Not only are the imperialists brutal, but they are so arrogant that they don’t even have the common sense to self censor their acts of terror. They are sure that the imperialists have their back so they do not even bother hiding their brutality. Genocide bought and paid by the USA. Israel could not survive without the billions it receives every year in military aid from the USA.
