Bullets or missle brought down MH-17?

Geez, they only now are collecting the carcass of the Malaysian commercial airliner MH-17 that was shot down over the Ukraine in July, 2014.The Western media continues to scream that Ukrainian rebels armed with a Russian ground to air missile did it. Even Al-Jazeera just assumes it's a missile from Ukrainian rebels. Both the US and Russia are stonewalling/taking their time on handing over satellite and radar evidence. 

The RT video below presents the Russian view that it was 30 millimeter bullets from a Ukrainian fighter jet that shot down the plane. Most impressive is photographs of the very noticeable vapor trail such a missile would leave, video of Russians using such bullets to shoot into some old planes, comparison of the damage to that on MH-17, and eye witnesses who are sure they heard a plane.  There are a couple questionable assertions I didn't bother to check and there's a noticeable lack of some radar evidence presented last summer indicating an aircraft.

There's been lots of time since July to tamper with the evidence in the field; and there will be more opportunities once it gets into the hands of the Ukrainian government whose security apparatus has been infiltrated by Ukraine's Right Sector neofascists. Most infamously Andriy Parubiy who was a top security secretary from after the February coup to August 2014 when he mysteriously was driven from power. But now he's head of the People's Front party that just got 22% of the seats in Ukraine's Parliament. They have their own military council of which he's part.

Hope there are some honest people watching the evidence every minute. If there are they'll probably turn up dead in a field with a big fat round in their head. 

It's strange that with all the exposes about right-wing white power ultra-nationalist neo-fascist violent crazies threatening the US and Europe, when one like the Right Sector actually becomes prominent in a government, the US/NATO pretend it's not a factor. They can't admit even to themselves the possibility that a Right Sector leader/militant ordered or facilitated the shoot down of the plane to make Russia look bad and get US/NATO reinforcement.Or maybe they've figured it out and thus are keeping the Ukrainians at arms length, using them just as pawns in US/NATO plans to further crush Russia and it's many growing alliances worldwide.  

I hate power politics!!  But every now and then you have to exercise your mind and write about it.

It's a scary world we live in when people can shoot down a commercial plane and giant powers and their underlings can suppress evidence.  And these scary people still have lots of nukes and continue to bleed us dry.

"I Chose the Apple"

Been wanting to put something short and happy up, and this is it.  An almost 40 year old song of mine that still says it all!

New Zealand feminists fight sexism on Youtube

Doing some research on the vicious harassment of women online, done largely by sexually frustrated and emotionally disturbed males, especially jobless english footballers from lower middle class neighborhoods and asperger-afflicted americans in their mother's basements. Found this funny video reply to a Robin Thicke song/video I never heard of before. His words were nearly unintelligible but these women Law Students from the University of Auckland in New Zealand get their message across loud and clear.  I have a loose definition of feminist myself: any woman who refuses to put up with male bull in any part of her life.

Speaking of "castrating females" - this one just won a seat in the U.S. Senate!

Scariest Holloween movie...

Wandering the dials for good scary movies tonight when came across the scariest one I've seen this week. A Turner Classic Movies short between two old horror movies. But this is the one that will give me nightmares... Not the exact one below, but close enough.  Thousands of volunteers and hospitals that can be set up in four hours outside the blast zone. Americans must be prepared for the inevitable. Blah blah.  Of course today they intend to just spring that war on us. There's just too dang many of us anyway!

Scots decide to postpone independence til after catastrophe

Being a radical decentralist, I do not think that a 51% vote should force all Scots to declare independence from Britain. So I can't be too disappointed by the vote. Of course, it would be fun to see the English imperialists whose grand-daddies murdered millions of captive peoples over hundreds of years get a good sock in the nose. (Think Ireland and India, in addition to Scotland.) 

Of course, as a radical decentralist I think that any one who wants to get out from under the the British boot should have a right to do it today. Looks like 53 percent of Glasgow is ready!  

But I predict that Scots eventually will declare independence. Like when the British economy collapses again under the weight of debt caused by militarism, the looting rich and too many Brits on the dole. When half those working for the British government loose their jobs, and two-thirds of those working for British corporations do as well, the Scots will be delighted to take back their land from the superiority complex-ridden but ultimately self-destructive British elites and their dumb supporters.  

I just hope Scotland doesn't have to take too many nuclear hits when the British imperialists help the United States promote nuclear war (accidentally or on purpose) with Russia.  Keep baiting the bear, you stupid wankers.

Flying like a bird over Manhattan... yoo ha!!

I'm doing this in my next life.  I'll probably be a macho latino guy, so this is a positive outlet for that energy.

Enough, already, you can keep the old, ugly Doctor Who

Like a lot of people I said, "Oh, no, they're going to replace fun cute Matt Smith "Dr Who" with some ugly old guy.  It'll never watch. I'll never watch it. boo hoo hoo."

I think it was about the 8th time someone in the first Capaldi episode brought up how disgusting it was he was old and ugly, emphasizing much breast beating by various characters,I said, "Ok, you win, let him be old and ugly. Just don't talk about it any more!" Just in case they needed to reach the hard cases (those who really are young and pretty), they bemoaned the Horrible Fact another 6 or 7 times.   Is that called reverse psychology?  Or just psychology. 

And if we keep talking about getting rid of patriarchy and violence and war will they get fed up and say, "OK, let there be equality and freedom and peace and love" and cut out all their BS?  Time hopefully will tell...
Update 9/16/14: After three shows I can honestly say I LOVE THE NEW DR. WHO.  After all he IS 10 years younger than me, about the age I like them. And Peter Capadi is cute and funny like Roberto Benigni of "It's a beautiful life" fame.  Plus he's Scottish, and hopefully those brave souls will be freeing themselves from the English yoke this week in their September 2014 referendum.
