outrage, grief and the boogeyman...
The boogeyman as promoted by the merdia press...
Have you ever been in a classroom where the same pupils seem to always get the blame for misdeeds?... Whether it's the class bully or the poor simpleton, it's rare the real culprit for a misdeed is punished. I've seen some angelic clever kids doing their worst to see how someone would react for being blamed for something they did not do...
The classroom needs its boogeyman...
The western world needs its boogeyman. When Osama passed its use-by-date — a sad sod who had lost his influence in a changing world — he was unceremoniously taken out in a daring raid that had the added benefit of providing superman glory for the general in the White House.
We could have hoped that with Osama being gone, the world would be safer... Ask the Iraqis about that... Since then, Osama has been replaced by various extremist leaders with names that are a bit too hard to remember, but it does not matter.... We have been primed to kick these extremist Muslim leaders in the guts, giving the entire Muslim community a bad smell. But the neo-fascist have also another boogeyman in another sphere of influence they want to loot.
Thus when flight MH17 was taken out, straight away all the fingers pointed out Vladimir Putin. He is the capitalist neo-fascist boogeyman... They don't like him... He is a ruthless bully who stopped them from plundering Russia, which they were about to do under the banner of freedom (free for all who can steal the furniture, the resources and get away with interests to boot), when the Soviet Union collapsed. They hate him for that — and they will show as much as possible how Putin is a thug because in order to stop the rape of Russian by the west, he had to do a few unsavoury things, like sending a few oligarch to exile.
Unlike Obama who of course has "clean hands" — despite having killed many more people with drones than died on flight MH17... (but of course those he killed were all baddies, except women and children who would have grown to become baddies) — Putin is so bad, that we, in the western neo-fascist world, think it's time to take him out.
So we straight-away placed the blame for MH17 being shot out of the sky on Putin without any evidence of sorts, and we feel smug in our accusations while plastering our angry sorrows by the bucket load and reef ceremonies, onto the Russian guy — because we "know" he's done it...
But there is a but. As the NSA spies on all our stuff, the Russians also spy on Ukraine. For the last few days, they would have had tried hard to understand what happened, since the finger is pointing at them, the boogeymen and they don't have a boogeyman themselves, so they are left carrying the can, they are the end of the line as far as the west is concerned... They can object all they want, we won't believe them... They are our boogeyman. They "did" it!
Have we got any proof that the missile that destroyed MH17 came from Russia into the hands of rebels? No... but this does not matter at all. We've got a "hunch"... And we need to blame someone, don't we? The ruskies will do...
Have we got any proof that the missile was fired by Ukrainian-Russian rebels? No... but we assume this, because they have downed Ukrainian planes up to 25,000 feet a few days before (so what was a civilian airliners doing in this very dangerous airspace?)... And of course, that "very incorruptible" new Ukrainian government told us and showed us pictures and transcripts and this and that... or is this part of the illusion to get our boogeyman?
There is good chance that the missile was of Russian origin. We also know that the Ukrainian-Russian looted armaments from the Ukrainian army which mostly uses Russian hardware. This looting is where such a weapon could come from. As well we assume that the Ukrainian-Russian rebels do not have the expertise to fire such weapons. Balls! Some of the "rebels" would have been in the Ukrainian army at one stage or another. They would have the knowledge of the weaponry used and seem to be very much like an army rather than revolutionaries.
A Russian general is now throwing a spanner in our gun-ho decision to blame Putin... And the general's explanation is very plausible. There was a Ukrainian SU25 flying nearby MH17 about 3 to 4 kilometres on the side at the same altitude. His radar logs tell him so. I would suggest that we also get the Ukrainian radar logs which were very active before MH17 was shot down, then had a reduced activity after the deed. Would it be possible that the missile was aimed at the SU25 and hit MH17 instead... Who knows. Would it be that the SU25 shot down MH17. What happened to the pilot of the SU25? Does this plane exist?
The general was also intimating that the Ukrainians fired the missile — not the rebels... Why would they do that? Very difficult to say... Were they trying to embarrass the rebels? For downing a civilian plane? Or was the hands of the Ukrainian tied up with the CIA? We know the CIA has been operating Ukraine for a long time... I know it's conspiracy theory stuff, but it is as much a conspiracy theory as our blaming of Vladimir Putin square on, until we know what really happened.
Meanwhile, as our own boogeyman Abbott demands the truth about the Russians, we're getting nothing about his ruthless activities on victimising boat people, under the vow of secrecy... and whatever... Shame Abbott, shame...
