The Queen’s Prime Minister, David Cameron, is leading the rush towards war with Russia, trying to force France and Germany to join him in blaming Russia for the downing of the Malaysian airliner before any investigation, and to introduce new economic sanctions next Tuesday, and still harsher measures at the Wales NATO summit in six weeks.
One pretext being used, is simply that the Donetsk rebels are storing up all the evidence for the official international investigators, who have still not arrived on site despite all their appeals, rather than allowing the fascist Kiev government to seize the evidence and falsify it in their usual way.
Cameron has written a demagogic op-ed for the Sunday Times of London, beginning, “Like the horror of Lockerbie in 1988,…” which can be found on his facebook page.
“Alongside our sympathy there is also anger.” Anger at Moscow and “anger that some in the West, instead of finding the resolve to deal with this issue, have simply hoped it would go away. We must establish the full facts of what happened. But the growing weight of evidence points to a clear conclusion.” Guess what that is.
“In Europe we should not need to be reminded of the consequences of turning a blind eye when big countries bully smaller countries…. But we do. For too long there has been a reluctance on the part of too many European countries to face up to the implications of what is happening in eastern Ukraine. Sitting around the European Council table on Wednesday evening, I saw that reluctance at work again.”
Cameron called Merkel and Hollande on Sunday, and his office said after the call that the European Union foreign ministers “should” pass additional sanctions when they meet this Tuesday, July 22. He also called Putin to beard the lion in his den. No readout on that call yet.
Mark Perry, one of the U.S. journalists who exposed Obama’s lies about Syrian chemical weapons, wrote a July 20 article for Consortiumnews.com titled, What Did U.S. Spy Satellites See in Ukraine? That’s his first question: “Yes, there are limitations to what U.S. spy satellites can see. But the Buk missiles are about 16 feet long and they are usually mounted on trucks or tanks. Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 also went down during the afternoon, not at night, meaning the missile battery was not concealed by darkness.
“So why hasn’t this question of U.S. spy-in-the-sky photos–and what they reveal–been pressed by the major U.S. news media? How can the Washington Post run front-page stories, such as the one on Sunday with the definitive title ‘U.S. official: Russia gave systems,’ without demanding from these U.S. officials details about what the U.S. satellite images disclose?”
“What I’ve been told by one source, who has provided accurate information on similar matters in the past, is that U.S. intelligence agencies do have detailed satellite images of the likely missile battery that launched the fateful missile, but the battery appears to have been under the control of Ukrainian government troops dressed in what look like Ukrainian uniforms.
“The source said CIA analysts were still not ruling out the possibility that the troops were actually eastern Ukrainian rebels in similar uniforms, but the initial assessment was that the troops were Ukrainian soldiers. There also was the suggestion that the soldiers involved were undisciplined and possibly drunk, since the imagery showed what looked like beer bottles scattered around the site, the source said.”
