Looking Who Is Talking! MH17 and the US Role in Downing Passenger Airplanes

Approximately four months after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370) disappeared in March 2014, while en route from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur to the Chinese capital of Beijing, another incident took place with a Malaysian passenger plane. This time Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17), en route from the Dutch capital of Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was shot down on July 17, 2014 over the contested airspace of the breakaway Donetsk People’s Republic. The incident took place over Torez near the Russian-Ukrainian border while the authorities in Kiev were busy militarily assaulting the separatist armed forces of Novorossiya, that is the soldiers of the breakaway Donetsk People’s Republic and Donetsk’s sister-breakaway republic in East Ukraine, the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (…)

Merkel: Ukraine can go to Eurasian Union
BRUSSELS – Germany’s Angela Merkel has said Ukraine is free to “go to” Russia’s “Eurasian Union”, amid signs of a new willingness to make peace with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
Speaking to German public broadcaster ARD on Sunday (24 August), the German chancellor said her visit to Kiev on Saturday was designed to prepare for peace talks between Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko and Putin in Minsk on Tuesday, but warned the public not to expect a „breakthrough”.
She mentioned Ukrainian “decentralisation”, a deal on gas prices, and Ukraine’s “trade relations” with Russia as elements that could bring about an accord.
„And if Ukraine says we are going to the Eurasian Union now, the European Union would never make a big conflict out of it, but would insist on a voluntary decision,“ Merkel added.
„I want to find a way, as many others do, which does not damage Russia. We [Ger-many] want to have good trade relations with Russia as well. We want reasonable relations with Russia. We are depending on one another and there are so many other conflicts in the world where we should work together, so I hope we can make progress”.

Belarus, EU, Economy, Gas, Germany, Politics, Russia, USA, Ukraine
The road to the Minsk summit this past Tuesday began to be paved when German Chancellor Angela Merkel talked to ARD public TV after her brief visit to Kiev on Saturday.

Merkel emphasized, “A solution must be found to the Ukraine crisis that does not hurt Russia.”

She added that „There must be dialogue. There can only be a political solution. There won’t be a military solution to this conflict.”

Merkel talked about “decentralization” of Ukraine, a definitive deal on gas prices, Ukraine-Russia trade, and even hinted Ukraine is free to join the Russia-promoted Eurasian Union (the EU would never make a “huge conflict” out of it). Exit sanctions; enter sound proposals.

She could not have been more explicit; “We [Germany] want to have good trade relations with Russia as well. We want reasonable relations with Russia. We are depending on one another and there are so many other conflicts in the world where we should work together, so I hope we can make progress”.

The short translation for all this is there won’t be a Nulandistan (after neo-con Victoria ‘F**k the EU’ Nuland), remote-controlled by Washington, and fully financed by the EU. In the real world, what Germany says, the EU follows.

Geopolitically, this also means a huge setback for Washington’s obsessive containment and encirclement of Russia, proceeding in parallel to the ‘pivot to Asia’ (containment and encirclement of China).

It’s the economy, stupid
Ukraine’s economy – now under disaster capitalism intervention – is… well, a disaster. It’s way beyond recession, now in deep depression. Any forthcoming IMF funds serve to pay outstanding bills and feed the (losing) creaking military machine; Kiev is fighting no less than Ukraine’s industrial heartland. Not to mention that the conditions attached to the IMF’s ‘structural adjustment’ are bleeding Ukrainians dry.

Taxes – and budget cuts – are up. The currency, the hryvnya, has plunged 40 percent since early 2014. The banking system is a joke. The notion that the EU will pay Ukraine’s humongous bills is a myth. Germany (which runs the EU) wants a deal. Fast.

The reason is very simple. Germany is growing only 1.5 percent in 2014. Why? Because the Washington-propelled sanction hysteria is hurting German business. Merkel finally got the message. Or at least seems to have.

The first stage towards a lasting deal is energy. This Friday, there’s a key meeting between Russian and EU energy officials in Moscow. And then, later next week, it will be Russian, EU and Ukrainian officials. The EU’s energy commissioner, Gunther Oettinger, who was in Minsk, wants an interim deal to make sure Russian gas flows through Ukraine to Europe in winter. General Winter, once again, wins any war.

Here, essentially, we have the EU – not Russia – telling Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to stuff his (losing) ‘strategy’ of slow-motion ethnic cleansing of eastern Ukraine.

Moscow has always insisted the Ukraine crisis is a political problem that needs a political solution. Moscow would accept a decentralization solution considering the interests – and language rights – of people in Donetsk, Lugansk, Odessa, Kharkov. Moscow does not encourage secession.

Poroshenko, on the other hand, is your typical Ukrainian oligarch in a dance of oligarchs. Now that he’s on top, he does not want to become road kill. He might, if he relies on ‘support’ by the neo-Nazis of Right Sector and Svoboda, because then there will never be a political solution.

The Empire of Chaos, needless to say, does not want a political solution – with a neutral Ukraine economically tied to both the EU and Russia; economic/trade integration across Eurasia is anathema.

It’s all about NATO
In parallel, every EU diplomat with a conscience – well, they do exist – knows that the non-stop hysteria about the Russian‘threat’ to Eastern Europe is a Washington-peddled myth designed to boost NATO. Secretary-General Anders ‘Fogh of War’ Rasmussen sounds like a scratched CD.

It’s hardly a secret in Brussels that larger EU powers simply don’t want permanent NATO bases in Eastern Europe. France, Italy and Spain are forcefully against it. Germany is still sitting on the wall, carefully weighing how not to antagonize both Russia and the US. Needless to say, the Anglo-American “special relationship” badly wants the bases, supported by the hysteria unleashed by Poland and the Baltic states – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

So Fogh of War is on a predictable roll, talking “rapid reinforcements”, “reception facilities”, “pre-positioning of supplies, of equipment, preparation of infrastructure, bases, and headquarters” and “a more visible NATO presence.” This graphically proves, once again, that the Empire of Chaos couldn’t give a damn about Ukraine; it’s all about NATO expansion – the key talking point next week at the Wales summit.

The no-holds-barred neoliberal asset-stripping, wild privatization and outright looting of Ukraine, disguised as loans and ‘aid’, is now unstoppable. Yet gobbling up Ukraine’s agriculture and energy potential is not enough for the Empire of Chaos. It wants Crimea back (that future NATO base in Sevastopol…). It wants missile defense deployed in Poland and the Baltics. It would even love regime change in Russia.

And then there’s MH17. If sooner rather than later is proved the Empire of Chaos fooled Europe into counterproductive sanctions based on the flimsiest ‘evidence’, German public opinion will force Merkel to act accordingly.

Germany was the secret behind the Minsk summit. Let’s see if Germany will also be the secret behind the Wales summit. In the end it’s up to Germany to prevent Cold War 2.0 getting hotter by the day all across Europe.

WDR5: „Russische Kampfpanzer in der Ukraine“

Die Propagandaschau

wdr5WDR5 29.8.2014 9:20 Uhr

Um 9:20 Uhr beginnt im WDR5 das Tagesgespräch unter dem Thema:

Russland auf dem Vormarsch?

Schon der irreführende Programmhinweis, der mit russischen Panzern aufwartet, und im Text obendrein behauptet, diese würden in der Ukraine rollen, zeigt wohin die propagandistische Stoßrichtung gehen soll.

wdr5_tagesgespräch_29.8„Russische Kampfpanzer fahren am 19.08.2014 noch unter Beobachtung von Medienvertretern in der Ukraine“

Selbstverständlich hat nicht einmal die NATO Beweise, dass russische Panzer in der Ukraine rollen. Wogegen vollkommen klar ist, dass dort ukrainische Panzer rollen und eine Bevölkerung ermorden und vertreiben, die den Putsch in Kiew ablehnt. Obendrein wird wieder einmal die notorische Lüge vorgetragen, Russland hätte die Krim annektiert. Der WDR präsentiert also einmal mehr Lügen und Desinformation schon im Vorfeld der Sendung. Wer sich an dieser beteiligen möchte, kann dort anrufen oder kommentieren – und hoffen, dass sein Beitrag von der Zensur durchgelassen wird.

interessanter blog – CLUBORLOV — Propaganda and the lack thereof, aug 28, 2014

Propaganda and the lack thereof
With regard to the goings-on in Ukraine, I have heard quite a few European and American voices piping in, saying that, yes, Washington and Kiev are fabricating an entirely fictional version of events for propaganda purposes, but then so are the Russians. They appear to assume that if their corporate media is infested with mendacious, incompetent buffoons who are only too happy to repeat the party line, then the Russians must be same or worse.
The reality is quite different. While there is a virtual news blackout with regard to Ukraine in the West, with little being shown beyond pictures of talking heads in Washington and Kiev, the media coverage in Russia is relentless, with daily bulletins describing troop movements, up-to-date maps of the conflict zones, and lots of eye-witness testimony, commentary and analysis. There is also a lively rumor mill on Russian and international social networks, which I tend to disregard because it’s mostly just that: rumor. In this environment, those who would attempt to fabricate a fictional narrative, as the officials in Washington and Kiev attempt to do, do not survive very long.
There is a great deal to say on the subject, but here I want to limit myself to rectifying some really, really basic misconceptions that Washington has attempted to impose on you via its various corporate media mouthpieces.
1. They would like you to think that there is a Russian invasion in the East of Ukraine. What’s actually happening is a civil war between the government of Western Ukraine (which no longer rules the east in any definable way) and the Russian population of Eastern Ukraine. Ukraine has been falling apart for decades—ever since independence. The eventual break-up was inevitable, but the catalyst for it was the military overthrow of Ukraine’s legitimate government and its replacement with cadres hand-picked in Washington.
2. They would like you to think that the Russian government stands behind Lugansk People’s Republic and Donetsk People’s Republic—the two regions which, based on referendum results, have chosen to break away from Kiev. In fact, the Russian government has refused to recognize these republics. They have received no official political support from Moscow, which asked for the referendums to be postponed, and repeatedly asked for a cease-fire and an international, negotiated settlement to the crisis. The leadership of LPR and DPR has refused, and now aims for an outright military victory.
3. They would like you to believe that the Russian government is arming the “rebels” in Eastern Ukraine. To the contrary, the Russian government has withheld all military support, limiting itself to providing humanitarian supplies to the hundreds of thousands of people whose lives have been destroyed by artillery and rocket fire coming from the Ukrainian forces. The weapons in the “rebels’” arsenal are trophies, which they seized from the retreating Ukrainian forces. That said, the “rebels” are indeed being supported—but by the Russian people, not the Russian government. Remember, these are all Russians, on both sides of the border, and the Ukrainian government no longer controls any of it.
4. They want to convince you that Russia poses a threat to peace in Europe, and that the crisis in Ukraine is part of an imperialist Russian strategy to resurrect the USSR. Nothing could be further from the truth. The overarching Russian ambition is for Russia to be a normal country, subject of international law, at peace with the whole world, and integrated into the global economy. The Russian government is doing next to nothing to prevent Russians in areas that were once part of Russia from being slaughtered right in their homes using artillery and rocket fire. This makes for a distressing spectacle, but the Russian people understand that enlarging the military conflict beyond the by now purely notional borders of Ukraine is not the answer.
5. They want to assure you that Kiev will eventually prevail in the conflict. In fact, the Ukrainian military is being systematically destroyed. Shelling civilians is the only activity which they have been able to carry out successfully. The government in Kiev has instituted three mobilizations, one after the other, sending into battle boys and old men (maximum draft age is now 60). Those who refuse to be drafted were at first threatened with incarceration, but this no longer works, so they are now threatened with murder. The unofficial “fee” for getting out of being drafted is several thousand dollars. These soldiers are badly armed, badly trained, completely demoralized, and they mostly refuse to fight. Ukraine is quickly running out of tanks and APCs, which are all old Soviet-era and have been rusting for decades. It appears that Ukraine no longer has an air force at all. The casualties run into the tens of thousands. Over just one week in July, 1400 Ukrainian soldiers were killed; on the other side the figure is 10. The kill ratio is 140:1 and that one number tells almost the whole story. The war is far from over, but now, for the first time, LPR and DPR actually have something resembling an army, and that army is going on attack. Once the Ukrainian military collapses altogether, there is still the mercenary force maintained by the oligarch Kolomoisky, who runs Dnepropetrovsk Region as a personal fiefdom, and has recently decided to take charge of other neighboring regions as well. But mercenaries don’t like getting killed and, beyond a certain point, will simply run away. In all, it seems increasingly likely that Kiev will lose and that Ukraine will cease to exist.
6. They want you to think that the government in Kiev is legitimate, popular and stable. In fact, there are huge protests going on in Kiev at this very moment. The entire country is beyond bankrupt and is falling apart in real time, not just in the east, but everywhere. The people are beyond angry. The military units retreating from the east are in a foul mood, and may soon decide to turn their weapons against those who ordered them into battle. The people are beyond angry, and it seems probable that another revolution, only half a year since the last one, is in the works.
I hope that you can absorb this basic information and use it to filter out the propaganda that you read in Western newspapers and hear on the nightly news (if they mention Ukraine at all). Don’t automatically assume that if your side is full of it, then the other side is too. You don’t have to settle for lies.  (…)

Obama destabilisiert Europas Ökonomie: Die Sanktionen vertiefen die Rezession
James Petras
24. August 2014

Obama übte aktiv auf Europa Druck aus, um Russland harte Sanktionen aufzuerlegen, um die gewaltsame Übernahme (‚Regime-Wechsel‘) in der Ukraine zu verteidigen. England, Frankreich, Deutschland und der Rest der europäischen Regime gaben Washingtons Forderungen nach. Russland antwortete mit Gegensanktionen, insbesondere Landwirtschaftsgüter und entwickelt alternative Handelspartner sowie zunehmenden Handel mit Chinaa, Iran, Lateinamerika und Afrika.Die Sanktionspolitik geschieht zu einer Zeit, als Europas Ökonomien in tiefer ökonomischer Krise steckten, was eine langfristige Stagnation und chronische Rezessen vertieft. Dieser Aufsatz wird die Krise identifizieren und anlysieren und wie die US-geführte Sanktionspolitik die EU spaltet.

Zweitens werden wir analysieren, wie Washingtons militaristische imperiale Politik ökonomisch unterminiert und den Rest der Welt militärisch destabilisiert. Drittens werden wir diskutieren, wie die europäischen Führer von Washington herumgeschubst werden und, um es grob auszudrücken, durch einen aggressiven ‚Fick-Prozess‘, ihre ökonomische Souveränität aufzugeben und die Kapitulation vor dem US-Projekt in der Ukraine zu ihrem langfristigen Niedergang und Zerfall führen wird. Schließlich werden wir die langfristigen Perspektiven diskutieren für eine neu-gestaltete Welt-Ökonomie, wo militärische Konflikte zu sehr große Veränderungen erzeugen können.

Von Stagnation zur Rezession, von Sanktionen zur Depression

In ganz Europa ohne Ausnahme hemmt die Rezession die Ökonomien. Die dominierenden Länder, Deutschland, Frankreich und Italien stecken im Sumpf der Rezession, der durch die Russland von Washington diktierten Sanktionen noch verstärkt wird. Vom nordischen Finnland über die baltischen Staaten bis Zentral- und Südeuropa ist die ‚Erholung‘ der Eurozone ‚kaputt‘!

Der ‚dreifache Fluch‘ von kapitalistischen De-Investitionen, ökonomischen Sanktionen und Kriegen hat eine Vertiefung der ökonomischen Krise provoziert. (…)

DWN bezweifelt NATO „Beweise“ für russische Militäroperationen in UA

Analyse der Nato-Bilder: Kein Beweis für einen „Vorstoß“ der Russen in die Ukraine
Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten | Veröffentlicht: 28.08.14, 22:12 | Aktualisiert: 28.08.14, 23:11 | 25 Kommentare
Die Nato hat Satellitenfotos vorgelegt, die belegen sollen, dass die Russen in der Ukraine Militär-Operationen durchgeführt haben. Vielleicht hat die Nato ja Beweise. Doch die veröffentlichten Fotos zeigen nichts, was eine solche Behauptung stützen könnte. Interessant ist jedoch der den Bildern beigefügte, schriftliche Bericht der Nato: In ihm wird angedeutet, dass die Nato Russland nicht überführen kann, Flug MH17 abgeschossen zu haben. (…)
