It Was No Accident

Malaysian Airliner Shot Down Over Ukraine

Giant Boeing 777 Falls From Sky

All 295 Aboard Dead, Including 23 Americans?

A plane which crashed in eastern Ukraine with 295 people, including six Britons, on board was reportedly shot down as it flew near airspace deemed unsafe for passenger jets.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which was heading from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was travelling at an altitude of 33,000 feet (10,000 metres) when contact was lost.

An adviser to the Ukrainian interior ministry told the Interfax news agency the Boeing 777 was brought down by a Buk ground-to-air missile, killing all 280 passengers and 15 crew members.

The victims include six Britons, as well as 154 Dutch, 38 Malaysians and 27 Australians, with a number of Americans also feared dead.

Plumes of thick, black smoke could be seen rising high into the air near the village of Grabovo, Donetsk.

The plane, which one eyewitness said split in half on impact, is almost unrecognisable in pictures of the crash site, with burning wreckage scattered across a vast area.

A spokesman for Malaysia Airlines, still reeling from the loss of flight MH370 in March, said the plane disappeared from radar as it flew over Ukrainian airspace.

Officials in Kiev were quick to deny any involvement, with President Petro Poroshenko lamenting what he called an “act of terrorism”.

US Vice-President Joe Biden said the jet appeared to have been deliberately “blown out of the sky”, with an unnamed US official blaming Ukrainian separatists backed by Russia in an interview with the Reuters news agency.

However, separatist leader Alexander Borodai said the aircraft was shot down by Ukrainian government forces - a claim backed by another separatist, who told Reuters the rebels do not have weapons capable of shooting down a plane at such height.

Sky’s Katie Stallard, in Moscow, said Igor Strelkov, the commander of the pro-Russian Donetsk People’s Republic, appeared to have boasted about the incident on social media.

In one deleted message recovered by Sky News, he allegedly wrote: “We warned you not to fly over our sky.”

Current analysis says the airliner was brought down by anti-aircraft missiles fired from a BUK, a Katyusha like multiple missile launcher on a tank chassis.

Meanwhile Obama Gives 38 Seconds To Crash, Goes Back To Telling Jokes

President Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. on Thursday by casually devoting less than a minute to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner, as he began an often jokey 16-minute speech about the need to expand America’s transportation infrastructure.

There are no confirmed American dead, an earlier Reuters report claimed that it was feared that as many as 23 U.S. citizens had perished.

Obama declared in Wilmington, Delaware that ‘it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy,’ but not before enthusiastically declaring that ‘it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.’
...
‘Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border. And it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy. Right now we’re working to determine whether there were American citizens on board. That is our first priority.’

‘And I’ve directed my national security team to stay in close contact with the Ukrainian governemnt. The United States will offer any assistance we can to help determine what happened and why. And as a country, our thoughts and prayers are with all the families and passengers, wherever they call home.

Obama then jarringly quickly returned to his prepared remarks.

‘I want to thank Jeremie for that introduction’ he said. ‘Give Jeremie a big round of applause.’

‘It is great to be in the state that gave us Joe Biden. We’ve got actually some better-looking Bidens with us here today.  We’ve got Beau and his wife, Hallie, are here. Give them a big round of applause. We love them.’

I don’t even know how to comment on this. Remember how Bush was chastised for reading to a bunch of kids when the first plane hit the WTC?  He can’t spare a minute? One whole minute? Better to have not mentioned it at all at his fundraiser thingy. Then do a quick presser afterwards.
I’m not even close to presidential, and I can see that one.

Traveling in Denver, this reporter heard gasps from guests watching a hotel lobby television as Obama spoke.

One remarked: ‘A tragedy is when you lose control and fly into a mountainside. This is mass-murder. What a disappointment.’

‘His distance from reality is just bizarre,’ said another.

Daniel Hannan, the British member of Europe’s parliament who has rankled liberals in a series of American speaking tours, tweeted his own disgust.

‘Listening to Obama’s statement [on] the airline tragedy, my mind went back to Reagan 31 years ago,’ he wrote.

‘How America’s leaders have shrunk.’

Obama finished his speech by saying ‘Let’s build some bridges. Let’s build some roads. God bless America.’

Matt Viser, a Boston Globe reporter on the scene, tweeted a devastating reaction.

‘Obama, in sum: A plane crashed. It may be tragic. We’re trying to see if US citizens were on board. Hey, great to be in Delaware!’ he wrote.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
