The turning point?

...or: How to kill 298 innocent people,     and not only pretend that it is raining.     But also that someone else did it.

So the inevitable has happened. Just like when the Korean Air Jumbojet KAL 007 was shot down by Soviet aircraft over Sakhalin in 1983. We all sit in stunned silence as the dust and smoke settles over  the Ukrainian plains, while hooded and masked men with no names and no apparent commitment to civilized life stuble among torn limbs, twisted metal and smoldering remnants.










Russia: State Terrorism

or: the most blatantly stupid geopolitical mistake since the cold war.

Caught on camera: With one missile gone, the BUK/SA-11 launcher is hurriedly driven back to Russia where it came from, maybe as late as the 29th June. I was ordered hidden behind a hotel. Note that it came with its own personnel from Russia.


So the inevitable has happened. Just like when the Korean Air Jumbojet KAL 007 was shot down by Soviet aircraft over Sakhalin in 1983. We all sit in stunned silence as the dust and smoke settles over  the Ukrainian plains, while hooded and masked men with no names and no apparent commitment to civilized life stuble among torn limbs, twisted metal and smoldering remnants.

Grief, sorrow or even a brief thought between hateful slurs and Rambo-style swagger? None apparent. The level of mismanagement is jaw-dropping. The amateurism blatantly obvious: they have no clue either what they have managed to do, or what now is a radically new setting.


All this seen against the actual operation of this missile system, that requires skilled and professional personnel. Only in russia is it possible to set advanced missile systems in the hands of people that are at best drunken loats, and at worst fanatical gung-ho "guns-for-hire" under a variety of commanders like Igor Girkin (Strelkov, "the shooter" among closer friends)

Launch control of the BUK, named SA-11 by western intelligence:

No place for a bunch of trigger-happy morons?


Girkin initially boasted of downing what they believed to be an unarmed Ukrainian transport plance travelling at 6000 m, having managed to so just that on monday 14. 7.

That  missile is still investigated, and most claim it was launched from russian territory and obviously by russian personnel. Both planes travelled at altitudes beyond the 3000-4000 m capability of a sholder-fired MANPAD.


As soon as the terrible truth emerged about it being a civilian plane, Girkin and the separatists deleted the boasting Twitter message and effectively went underground.

No sooner had the arms and legs of women and children come to rest in the fields before Russia started a storm of innuendos and distorted messages in the media.

Alexander Borodai, a distinguished member of Lugansk Free Republic ("retired" on august 4 just as things start go look very  bad ..) claimed that Ukraina had herself managed to shoot the aircraft down, while separatist leader Denis Pusjilin disappeared to  Moscow.


The level of false facts were such  that more staff resigned in protest from the state-run RT News Network in protest.

"  Russias involvement    is obvious, with a     wealth of indicators   all pointing to Putins   door.    There is just silence    from Moscow"

Loose talk: too  fast. Yet too slow to remove. Too damning.


Putin has gone notably silent, though one can imagine the echoes of animated talk under the crystal chandeliers of the Kremlin.


One of the men identified on tapes where separatist leaders openly and somewhat brainlessly admit to the shooting down is Igor Bezler, lieutenant-colonel in the russian army and affiliated with the separatists in Donetsk.


The work to investigate what is the largest scene of inter-state terror has just started. En route from Donetsk to the site, the reporters are stopped and checked/frisked at least 10-12 times by nervous and ruddy faced men packing more firepower than the size of their shoes would normally allow. All answer to different factional leaders, and  the coordination is zero.

CNNs reporters on-site mention rather in measured terms that the luggage clearly has not only been moved around, but also pillaged and looted of valuables.


Noted should be the total absence of cell-phones in the debris.


The russians, the Cossaks from the town of Chernukhino that according to the audio tapes pulled the trigger wander around, contaminating the crimescene. The victims of this latest russian contribution to  the world order lie in the fields, decomposing in the 30 C heat.


A full 10 minute car-ride away, a woman fell through the roof of a small house, while a young boy hid in the cellar. The womans body lay under a gaping hole in the roof for a full two days before anyone took care of her.


One cannot but wonder with what right these killers claim to be civilized. The story just started. With absolute certainty it will  change all, and hopefully be the Hiroshima of this war, and cause the empty russia to  once again collapse. This time re-emerging in a better and more respectable form.


Meanwhile, in Kremlin lies another man turning a deaf ear to Putins lamentations.

Lenin himself has been dead long enough to remain dead, no matter fantasies of Emperor Putin.





If you give a monkey an advanced missile system, or maybe a nuclear device, what do you expect?

Is the monkey to blame. Or the one providing it to the monkey? Food for thought in case Russia shrugs.






" ..please invade my country.."..


Mr Ponomarlov,  the self-appointed leader of the Donbas region bordering Russia has pushed through a referendum that even the pro-russian polulation considers something of a blinded mans fumblings. It is illegal when judged by any standards, without any presice goal and leaves the field open to any interpretation you'd like. In fact even Putin appears to  have seen this, and may have concluded that the entire affair is likely more of a headache than he bargained for.

The swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, shot and killed in Stckholm in february 1986 once said that "politics is the art of the possible". A definition that somehow seems penned in a civilized country.. What happened during and after what some people persist in calling a referendum re-defines this concept. Strictly speaking the entire excercise included people putting paper into transparent boxes. The papers are not proper ballots, as they are printed on ordinary printers with no security features, and the electoral lists do not exict. People have voted multiple times and voter turnout wildly exaggerated.


In the west there still lives the concept of treason, a term only applied in modern times by the totalitarian east. However the acts of the prorussian Ukrainians would fill the definition to the last letter.


After the weekends excercise in democracy Donbas-style, the self-appointed leaders suddenly seem to  scap the next referendun in a weeks time over whether to  join Russia.


Now they  decided to  simply apply for  joining Russia. Why bother to  even ask people, anymore?

Putin, on the other hand, has not answered.

The spirit of Quisling seems alive and  kicking again...


How better to define treason?
