... as is Malaysian Airlines

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


As the UN Security Council meets to thrash out a resolution damning one of its five permanent Members, Russia’s “action man”, Vladimir Putin is frozen in “inaction” between two awful options, with either likely to see him humiliated and banished to the Siberian salt mines.

Putin is desperate to distance himself from MH17 but world opinion has placed him front and centre. Any denial of culpability will be lost in irrefutable evidence. Any admission of guilt will brand him forever a war criminal.

Barack Obama is choosing his critical words wisely as he too supplied arms to redneck hoons in Syria, via the CIA, and the world is now faced with a terrorist State.

If Putin surrenders Ukraine, which he now must do, he becomes isolated in Eastern Europe and under crippling sanctions. If he tries to maintain a militia in Eastern Ukraine, which he now can’t do, the Eurozone, despite its economic links to Russia, will be forced to disown him.

If he uses Russia’s power of veto over any UN resolution he will become an international pariah and invoke the ire of even China. Russia’s place as a permanent Member of the Security Council could vanish.

If he agrees to Australia’s strident wording of the imminent resolution, he will have no choice but to admit his involvement in the deaths of 300 innocents along with his support of a ruthless, violent and lawless bunch of paid Putin mercenaries.

Putin is caught between multiple rocks and hard places, and there seems no reputable way out.

Meanwhile Malaysia Airlines executives are dodging the spotlight and many unanswered questions. Aviation safety expert Robert Mark claimed the MH17 flight took a route 300 miles to the north of the usual path.

Mark said., "I can only tell you as a commercial pilot myself that if we had been routed that way, with what's been going on in the Ukraine and the Russian border over the last few weeks and months, I would never have accepted that route.

"I went into the FlightAware system, which we all use these days, to see where airplanes started and where they tracked, and I looked back at the last two weeks' worth of MH17 flights, which was this one. There were MH17 versions that were 300 miles south of where this one was."

[The accompanying graphic shows the past two weeks of MAS flights within European corridors.]

The graphic speaks for itself and is damning of Malaysian Airlines’ concern for passenger safety. Their statement that, “15 out of 16 airlines use this route. It's a safe route... most other countries use this route”, is an outright lie.

As reported here yesterday, “The pilot in command alone dictates the course of his aircraft and he can request a quadrantal change in altitude or course at any time for any reason.”

It appears the words “Islam”, “airline” and “honesty” don’t belong in the same sentence.


Is no one allowed to ask the obvious question - is this MH17 a False Flag Operation? If it is, then we would expect full on lies all around the world from our media and heads of state all rushing to do the bidding of the planners to see that the goals of the FFOp are carried out. Probably start of WW3 or something similar? There are two reports of the bodies from the crash having a bad smell and being in a state of decomposition where they fell. This little fact changes everything and is more significant than anything else. How about we pay some attention to investigating these earth shattering facts - first!

Logical, not protecting Putin, that's not correct, just give every side the benefit of the doubt without jumping on the MSM bandwagon no matter what. The specialist UN independent investigation will bring out the truth. Until then the condemnation of Russia should stop, there are a lot of dirty hands in this from both sides.

There is another issue here and that is the fact that Russia wants to get away from the IMF and using the US dollar. How much would the IMF lose? China also wants to get away from the US dollar but this may be a warning to Putin. Crazy? well think back to JFK. Before he was assasinated, here is a couple of details you may not have heard. JFK started printing US non federal reserve dollars. he wanted to get away from the international bankers and the massive debt. he also was getting out of Vietnam. This meant arms manufacturers would not make money. He was assasinated, the US stayed with the Fed, LBJ reversed JFK's decision to get out of vietnam and the money train rolled on. Did you know that if JFK lived, our soldiers would have not died in Vietnam? these are facts, I am not making it up

Given two Ukrainian aircraft where previously shot down and it must have been know what weapons did it (from radar) why was the airspace kept open at all? Why wasn't the airspace closed completely?

That no talented hack who masquerades as the SMH political cartoonist "Moir" has actually made a reasonable comment in today's rag regarding the United nations and their 'resolution'

Chatter about EUkraine threatening all Europe with NUKES if they don't side with them against Russia. The past Pres of EUkraine, that deranged blonde witch Timoshenko, is already on record for calling for east Ukraine to be Nuked, and she still has supporters wanting her back in power...only another coup away...???


Logical, very very illogical summary may i suggest.

Shorten has a nasty habit of changing his mind DJT. Not a trustworthy man.

Have just had a thought tinged with memory. Remember talk of other jets following the plane? Columbian smugglers used to fly into the US using an old technique. You follow a plane that has a flight plan and is a normal people moving flight. If you follow closely in their jet stream, radars won't pick you up, so is a way of flying into a place without anyone knowing. Yanks have also done this flying spy planes into Russia etc and thus you can get in there to say pick up an agent or whatever. I wonder if some plane did piggy back MH17, and thus leave no radar signature.

One thing about the propaganda war that's erupted over MH17, is that it has flushed a lot of Leftist Traitors out of their once deep cover ---- and shown a lot of cowards who swing whichever way they believe the power is shifting, for the utter, untrustworthy, low lives they are.

on youtube video of the rebels...who seem surprised about the plane crash and state they will get evidence and the black box.....looking for it.......also australian journalists at the crash site.....filmed wandering sign of it is announced that they are too concerned about the fighting to get too the area.....facts revealed.

Logical, if we are talking history, the world will never forget the vile atrocities and mass murders carried out by Ukrainian nationalists during the German occupation.

So the bodies and the flight recorders have been properly handed over to the Malaysians simply because they asked with proper respect. So much for the boxes going to Moscow and the separatists trying to hide evidence. Of course the Malaysians were interested in results rather than conducting an anti-Russian propaganda campaign.

Level headed discussion of evidence now released by Russians here

How could separatists guarantee the bodies getting to any independents, when the EUkraines never stopped fighting over the area, even shelling where the reporters were ...ABC reporter STILL BLAMING Separatists, for everything, WHILE BEING SHELLED BY EUkraine? It is NOT the separatists shelling themselves, it IS The EUkrianes SHELLING UKRAINIANS OVER THAT INTERNATIONAL GRAVE SITE!
