Wreckage from MH17

Wreckage from MH17. But, whodunnit?


What to believe, what to believe…?  We’ll probably never know.  But I write this post merely as a cover to provide a link to somewhere that encapsulates some information very pertinent to the drawn-out investigation into the downing of a civilian passenger plane over hostile territory in a geopolitical hot-spot.


Coincidence and Mystery

Since the tragic shoot-down of MH17, I’ve wondered if perhaps MH370, the disappeared plane from a few months back (see this previous post for a mundane but possible explanation for that), subsequently became MH17 and was shot down to ‘dispose of the evidence’.

Maybe, but what happened to the MH370 passengers and crew?  Probably MH370 is still somewhere else.

Worthy of note, however, is the little fact that MH370 was registered as ‘9M-MRO’, and MH17 was registered as ‘9M-MRD’.  Imagine how easy it might be to alter the ‘O’ to a ‘D’…


War Drums?

Military planes have been getting shot down in the eastern Ukraine area for a while now, both prior to and since the MH17 shoot-down.

Let’s just imagine for a moment that the Ukrainian authorities wanted to make the Russian-backed separatists shoot down a civilian plane, in order to frame Russia and the separatists in the eyes of the world…  There have been varied reports and admissions about the presence of a Ukrainian SU-25 or SU-27 fighter near to MH17 in its final minutes in the sky.

Let’s say that the SU-25 (or SU-27) was there, very close to MH17, to draw fire from the separatists, and then release countermeasures or simply bug out rapidly to leave the MH17 heat trail as the lone target for a BUK-launched SA-11 missile (we’ve all seen similar scenarios in movies, right?  Missile tracks a target, target pulls a sweet manoeuvre and the missile strikes something other than the intended target…).

All of that completely contradictory to the ‘blame Russia, Putin is the devil’ narrative that was established by Western politicians and mainstream media within mere hours of the downing, with no concrete evidence whatsoever.


Go Read The Stuff At The Link Provided

Anyway, enough from me.  I urge any interested readers out there to read this interesting assessment of an alternative scenario, based on the idea that US-backed Ukrainian agencies are responsible for the shoot-down of MH17, and what this means in terms of a potential major conflict:

Sneering leftie elitists presents Joe Hockey the Smiling Buffoon, or How Australia Learned to Love Me and Make Me the Prime Minister.

That fat cigar-smoking sanctimonious bastard Joe Hockey, otherwise known as the Federal Treasurer, has unleashed a new account of his rise to the Prime Ministership as a much anticipated sequel to the success of his first ever federal budget.

The book, a precipitous concoction of mixed accounts from key players in the Liebral party, loosely packs together the somewhat disjointed and frequently opposing views of the protagonist’s rise from sweaty North Shore bumbling buffoon to smug Canberarrean cunt.

Yesterday at the launch of the book, the Treasurer said he’d leave ambitions of becoming PM to “destiny or whatever it may be”.

Yeah whatever…

Renewable energy rant

I love a good rant – and so I am reblogging this from my good friend at Theophrastus Switch, with immense thanks. Also just so happens that I agree with every word – even the sweary ones!

Alright, so let’s, for the next few minutes, pretend that the current Australian government (or any, for that matter) knows what they’re talking about. Imagine if climate change/global warming really were just coincidences, and that humans have no impact on our planet, or that the planet simply isn’t getting warmer, just as the coalition would like us to think, and then tell me one reason why we shouldn’t be phasing into completely relying on renewable energy.

Other than ‘but Tony’s ‘friends’ like Gina won’t be making money, then’, there’s no reason.

People making money off the dead coal industry should not be priority. Opening the doors to Australian innovators to take advantage of our unique landscapes and the engineering problems which lie within should be. Advancing science and engineering should be. The health of our planet should be.

Even if global warming wasn’t a thing, the future needs to be renewable, reliable…

A well-constructed piece on the Israel/Palestine affair from Deconstructing Myths (reblogged, with thanks!). Go read it.

It’s a little over 18 months old, and has surfaced again in line with the currently ongoing bombardment and mass-slaying. Well worth the read, and well worth following up with many of the informative links in this post.

Peace. Out.

In America, most flag waving, apple pie eating Christians are familiar with the biblical story of David and Goliath. This story has all the attributes of the underdog coming out on top that Americans love to lap up with their New York Times and morning cup of joe. Alas, the government of Israel knows all too well how Americans love their mythologies…from the one about the noble settlers (murdering conquerors) who had a bountiful feast with the savage Indians (rightful land dwellers) at Plymouth Rock to the African American POTUS who represents the culmination of the civil rights era and not the cynical, co-opting of it. For most of my naive, apolitical life, I passively bought the story hook, line, and sinker about how Israel represents poor, little David standing up to the Philistine Goliath’s who would do them no little harm. In the Bible, when the…

Song Of The Moment 001

I’m reblogging myself! This is getting weird now…

Can’t stop listening to this song right now, from Carusella, out of Tel Aviv, Israel.  Despite the ongoing Gaza bombardment…

All this noise out of two musicians.  The band is now defunct, I believe, after one album.

Some technical issues with this live performance, including 2 or 3 cord severances from Tamar Aphek’s guitar…  The record version is neater to listen to, but there’s no video for it that isn’t just a still.

Crank it.  Enjoy.
