Damn it, why won't the farking terrorists STOP ALREADY!?!

Hindustan Times? Good source. Perhaps we should wait a bit to see if this shows up elsewhere. I thought most of the plane was under 3,000 feet of water. Big coincidence that the few bits that are still floating are the ones with bullet hole(s).
2001-10-06 10:08:59 AM  
Or that the plane didn't rip apart at the bullet holes.
2001-10-06 10:16:47 AM  
The plane would not explode. The front of the plane would tear away and the plane would go into the spin of death to the water below. The bullet theory pardon the pun has a lot of holes in it. THe Russians are very good at this type of problem solving. Time will tell the tale.
2001-10-06 10:26:08 AM  
I would wager there are bullet holes in most Russian airliners. Just a hunch.
2001-10-06 10:46:27 AM  
Do they mean to imply Charleton Heston shot down the plane?
2001-10-06 11:06:45 AM  
So what have we got so far? Terrorists sent a Ukrainian missile out of control and it accidently shot down the plane with a gun. Right?
2001-10-06 11:19:10 AM  
Those were termite holes....
2001-10-06 11:19:22 AM  
Perhaps one of the pilots was trying to shoot the missle down before it hit the plane.
2001-10-06 11:19:41 AM  
I wouldn't trust this source since Indians desperatly want the West to start war on Islamic countries. Anyway, when the missile burst, shrapnel hit the plane as well. The "bullet" holes are probably from the shrapnel.
2001-10-06 11:32:22 AM  
For what it's worth, now CNN is reporting the "bullet holes."

2001-10-06 11:55:22 AM  
It appears that there is a coverup here. I'd look at the Nations involved and which ones need sympathy right now.

TWA800 was shot down by a missile.

this flight may have been shot down also, or somebody hijacked the plane, got a gun and put some holes in it. It should be noted that the person with the gun at first would have been a pussy and handed it over for his own good. Like Americans are doing now. When the tanks roll into your yard and your house is teargassed like when all the Christians died at Waco, you will wish you didn't play slave to the Government
2001-10-06 12:09:06 PM  
I'll beleive it when it's confirmed by a reliable source. Hindustan Times??? Anyone remember the Monkey Man, for Christ's sake? LOL
2001-10-06 12:50:32 PM  
jesus bobo. can you repeat that in some way that makes even a shred of sense?
2001-10-06 02:13:13 PM  
And they found the parts of the plane where again? I thought it crashed into the black sea. Metal != float
2001-10-06 02:30:24 PM  
I believe those were speed holes. They make the plane go faster.
2001-10-06 05:01:36 PM  
...Just as the highjacker was making good his threat to shoot the pilot the plane was hit by a stray missile...
2001-10-06 05:44:27 PM  
All this does bring up questions about our foreign policy, but if you don't like ou support of Israel, STFU, you can't do shiat about that.

CNN is also gonna show how in bed they are with the homo lobby.

'This homosexual agenda has gotten from the point where I used to shrug my shoulders because I could really care less what people do behind closed doors, to extremely irate because they refuse to keep their sex life behind closed doors.
The more they pull disgusting propaganda stunts likes this, the more they contradict their so-called message that homosexuality is normal.
If it's so damned normal, then why the need to expoit it at every opportunity, justified or not? Frankly, if they were half way honest they'ed come right out and admit that their motive is to point out that they're not normal, that they're a minority with special needs. After all, they can't have it both ways.'

and I am reminded of the saying of another great man in this world dominated by Satan, a man of God.

"Abortionists are murderers that kill for convenience.
BATF/FBI are murdering thugs that kill because their power hungry leaders tell them to. They kill because they like it. They kill in the name of the likes of Bill Klinton and Janet Reno.

Terrorists murder because they are fanatics.
They blindly follow their leaders.

Not a hell of a lot of difference, is there? But I do not hear the public outcry against abortionists, or the gestapo (Waco again), just against terrorists.
I guess the kids at Waco felt better being gassed and burned to death by home grown Americans than they would have been at some Arab terrorist, huh?"

"The liberals amd goverment are having a field day villifying box cutters.
Pilots that want to carry guns to protect their aircraft are being told that they aint mature enough to have an evil gun. But the reason is that guns are evil.
Yeah, we wouldnt want to stop a suicidal hijacker, now would we? The gubbermint will protect you. hahahhaha. Their "security" at the airports sure helped in this last little fiasco, didnt it?
Asking if you packed your own bags was a stroke of security genius!! Hahahha.
Carrying a nailfile will soon be a felony. Trying to get thru airport security with a pencil will become a crime. But we better NOT allow GUNS on aircraft. It might offend someone's little sensabilities.
Yeah, you can depend on the goverment to protect you, sure. Right. You are safe. Do what you are told. Pass some more laws against yourselves. Whistle in the dark. Carry a cellphone, so you can tell the media what is going on in the aircraft, as the flight crew is getting their throats cut. Better yet, when the first stewardess gets her throat cut, dial 911. That will help."

I guarantee some Muslim idiot will try to release something or ruin the Super Bowl.

and in Pennsylvania, a kid was suspended for drawing this.

Because showing talent is a crime in the Public Schools, make a fingerpainting of a god that they believe in, draw an S first and then a line thru it. $.

As for this plane, do we have anything around the Black Sea? do we have an idea of where in the Black Sea, the plane came down? This might be the most intentional accident since the days of when the missile hit TWA800 off Long Island.

I'm not sure that God wants to bless a country that denies his name. He's perfect, not a gullible idiot Santa Claus that blesses those who constantly hate him. I'm sure somebody temptered with Christ's words to make him appear to be this sissy. I'm sure if he is struck enough, you will be struck back.

The SF paper this morning quoted a Russian engineer who makes that particular missile as saying its payload includes a large number of small metal balls designed to shred the target. They're not bulletholes.

Bobo555: Of course showing talent is a crime in public schools. I'm probably going off on a rant here, so stop reading if you don't like it. One student at my school had to cover up one of his paintings because it showed an infant being stabbed with a fork. He had to write a disclaimer next to it explaining that it was his way of protesting abortion. He shouldn't have had to cover up a protest, but where I live, and I'm sure many other schools are this way as well, people are so damn sensitive to any type of "violence" that you have to cover up any piece of artwork that shows anything that might be considered contriversal. The way I see it, the more people who find a work of art offensive, the more people there are that remember it and, thus, it affects them. That's the whole point of art, isn't it- to affect people's lives?
But I think that most public schools infringe upon their students' first amendment rights. I'm not going to continue since I'll probably get some people pissed at me and I don't need that.

Tinrobot: why the fark is the "hindustan times" a bad source? I have more faith in them than CNN, who tends to only post stories that corrabarate with their large corporate sponsorship (they don't want to lose advertisers, after all). BBC is a lot better.

And if you'd noticed, the story was from AFP, a international news agency, heh.
2001-10-06 11:29:35 PM  
so how did they get a gun on board? It left Isreal, don't they search everyone in the airport? Well we are all jumpy about anything that we just thought was an accident a month ago. Which it might be. Its a Russian jet. They are garbage and crash all the time.

*scratches head, trying to make sense of Bobo's posts*
