I feel terrible for laughing at this
 
2014-07-18 08:38:11 AM  
The conversation appears - perhaps to conveniently - to back up the Ukrainian version of events - that either the rebels themselves or the Russians fired the missile that destroyed the Malaysian Airlines aircraft.

Hey, it passed the spellcheck. Give him a break.

Howard Stern has always been a rebel, that's for certain.

So we don't have to juggle two different major stories at once, can we just blame Israel?

Apparently there's also a Telegraph article up with a video of the Russian SAM truck driving over the border with two missiles missing.

Regardless, this isn't too convenient, imho.  It's not unlikely that they're monitoring communications and that this would happen, and all signs already point to the separatists.

Shouldn't the NSA be able to confirm this?

FTA:  But while the conversation sounds plausible, it is impossible to verify.

No it farking isn't. Do your goddamn jobs and investigate it. Are the voices of the supposed rebel leader and GRU colonel the same as in other recordings of them? If not, you've disproven it.

It's called basic farking investigative journalism. It's kinda the opposite of  a lazily written article (little more than a link to a youtube video) replete with spelling mistakes that implies, based on no evidence, that the Ukraine faked this recording.

It's likely U.S. military or intelligence officials know who shot the missile and what they ate for breakfast. They are deciding what information to release to avoid compromising sources and methods.

somedude210: kindms: And Obama calls it a tragic accident

I would say it's both an accident and an act of aggression at this point:

1) The separatists wanted to blow up a Ukrainian jet.  They've been doing it, they claimed to do it right then on Twitter, and they've previously confirmed they had the equipment cited as the cause here.
2) It's unlikely they wanted to blow up a Malaysian civilian plane.  It makes no sense.

Basically, it was intended as an act of aggression against the Ukrainians, and instead it was an accident that they chose the wrong plane.

The Russians too, and probably France, the UK, Israel and the Chinese as well.

I wasn't an accident only if the rebels WANTED to down a neutral civilian airliner.  Nobody wants that kind of publicity.

Obama yesterday:

"looks like it may be a terrible tragedy,". (4th paragraph)

Really the only thing to take note of is the word "may". May? It "Is" a tragedy no matter how it happened.

Yes, but that doesn't mean that the POTUS should go off half-cocked and blame Russia, a sovereign nation, from committing a violation of International Law, without proof.  There are like, implications of war with doing that.

Seriously, Obama gets blamed for being the only farking adult in the room sometimes.

Hey now.  People don't become journalists to look into things.  That's not a journalists job, man.  All they're supposed to do is regurgitate the details of an event.  Don't ask them to do actual work.  Oh and their jobs are dying out so feel pity for them.
 
2014-07-18 09:24:00 AM  
If this had been an American airliner, John McCain would have seen his greatest wish fulfilled.  Nuclear combat, toe-to-toe with the Ruskies.

Ah well, a man can dream.

Unless they knew it was civilian when they shot it, it is still an "accident". It doesn't absolve them of any responsibility.

Yes, it is. It's also manslaughter, but the terms tragic and accidental both apply.

Shiat, I give up, what is Obama using all of these false flags to distract us from again? Was it Benghazi? The 2008 elections? Christmas?

Whatever it is, they have a photo of him launching the missiles, or they will as soon as one of you lazy bastards fires up Photoshop. You could use the 'Pissed Rick Perry' picture and have them playing Battleship, or something.

Avakov: 'Irrefutable evidence' shows that Kremlin-backed separatists shot down Malaysian plane

Looks like the Ukrainian intelligence service knew that a BUK system with team was transferred from Russia just a few hours before the accident. They tracked its movement and even recorded the same BUK this morning with one missile missing.

It's about as much an accident as giving a kindergarten class a box of live hand grenades, and having a guest military intelligence operative toss an armed grenade into the traffic in front of the school.

The Russian government is becoming totally indistinguishable from organized crime more every day.
