To assess what happened to MH17, we must first address the Geopolitics.

The MSM is feeding us the Neocon imperial line.

John J. Mearsheimer expressed the Realist view (shared with Henry Kissinger) in his article Why the Ukraine Crisis Is the West's Fault (Foreign Affairs, Sept/Oct 2014):

"According to the prevailing wisdom in the West, the Ukraine crisis can be blamed almost entirely on Russian aggression. ... But this account is wrong: the United States and its European allies share most of the responsibility for the crisis. The taproot of the trouble is NATO enlargement, the central element of a larger strategy to move Ukraine out of Russia's orbit and integrate it into the West. At the same time, the EU's expansion eastward and the West's backing of the pro-democracy movement in Ukraine -- beginning with the Orange Revolution in 2004 -- were critical elements, too. ... For Putin, the illegal overthrow of Ukraine's democratically elected and pro-Russian president -- which he rightly labeled a "coup" -- was the final straw."

Victoria Nuland, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, admitted, in an address on December 13, 2013, that the US spent $5 billion on changing the political system in Ukraine.

Transcript:

"The Euro-Maidan movement has come to embody the principles and values that are the cornerstones for all free democracies. What began on November 24th as a protest against President YanukovychÕs decision to pause on the route to Europe has become much deeper and bigger.

5: 03 "The reforms that the IMF insists on are necessary for the long-term economic health of the country. A new deal with the IMF would also increase Foreign Direct Investment that is so urgently needed in Ukraine.

7: 26 "Since Ukraine's independence in 1991, the United States has supported Ukrainians as they build democratic skills and institutions, as they promote civic partipation and good governance, all of which are preconditions for Ukraine to achieve its European aspirations.

"We've invested over 5 billion dollars to assist Ukraine in these and other goals that will assure a secure and prosperous and democratic Ukraine."

That is interfering in another country. Not democracy, but the subversion of democracy.

The official view is that Ukrainian separatists shot down MH17.

One of their leaders, Igor Girkin, was reported as claiming "We did warn you - do not fly in our sky". Another report said that Separatists had seized a Buk system from Ukraine, with which to repel airstrikes.

In that case, it was a tragic mistake. But UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay said it may be a 'War Crime'.

Writing in the New York Times, Bernard-Henri Lévy blamed Putin, and Roger Cohen called for war on Russia: "A century on from World War I, nobody wants the guns of August. Yet ... governments should set an ultimatum backed by the credible threat of force demanding unfettered access to the [crash] site.": http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2014/07/24/pers-j24.html

Why then were the downings of Iran Air 655 (by the US) and Siberia Airlines 1812 (by Ukraine) not 'War Crimes'?

The Ukraine military shot down Siberia Airlines flight 1812 in 2001. This was attributed to a "stray missile"; no talk of "war crime" then.

The US military shot down Iran Air flight 655 over Iranian waters; the US never acknowledged responsibility, and this was not called a "war crime".

The downing of MH17 coincided with the anniversay of the destruction of TWA800. New information indicates that this was an accident caused by a stray missile, but US authorities have covered it up.

Evidence that does not fit the official theory has been suppressed, eg from Wikipedia. As an encyclopedia, it's fine on most topics, but unreliable on controversial issues.

(1) Air Traffic Controller named Carlos tweets: Ukraine shot down MH17
(2) BBC Russian service video: two women, eyewitnesses, said Ukrainian warplanes were flying alongside MH17, and shot it down

(3) MH17 cockpit shows traces of Shelling FROM BOTH SIDES It was hit by a Jet Fighter, not a Missile
(4) Witness says Ukrainian warplane took off with air-to-air missiles, returned without them

(1) Air Traffic Controller named Carlos tweets: Ukraine shot down MH17

A Spanish air traffic contractor, Carlos, working at Kiev Air Traffic Control (ATC), sent out a series of Tweets just after the downing of MH17, saying that the Kiev military shot MH370 down, and had tried to make it look like a Rebel attack.

Carlos' Twitter account @spainbuca was deleted by the US Government, but not before screenshots were captured; they are archived here:

Deleted BBC Report. "Ukrainian Fighter Jet Shot Down MHI7", Donetsk Eyewitnesses

The Catastrophe of #MH17: #BBC in the Search of the "#BUK" ­ The Video Report Deleted by @BBC

By Global Research News Global Research, July 27, 2014

http://www.globalresearch.ca/deleted-bbc-report-ukrainian-fighter-jet-shot-down-mhi7-donetsk-eyewitnesses/5393631

The original BBC Video Report was published by BBC Russian Service on July 23, 2014.

In a bitter irony, The BBC is censoring its own news productions.

Why did BBC delete this report by Olga Ivshina?

... Highlights of Witness statements (see complete transcript below)

Eyewitness #1: There were two explosions in the air. And this is how it broke apart. And [the fragments] blew apart like this, to the sides. And when ...

Eyewitness #2: ... And there was another aircraft, a military one, beside it. Everybody saw it.

Eyewitness #1: Yes, yes. It was flying under it, because it could be seen. It was proceeding underneath, below the civilian one.

Eyewitness #3: There were sounds of an explosion. But they were in the sky. They came from the sky. Then this plane made a sharp turn-around like this. It changed its trajectory and headed in that direction [indicating the direction with her hands].

(3) MH17 cockpit shows traces of Shelling FROM BOTH SIDES It was hit by a Jet Fighter, not a Missile

The MSM do not show the Cockpit photo; they only show photos of the Fuselage. They do identify Shrapnel holes, but without distinguishing ENTRY from EXIT holes, and they conclude that the Shrapnel was produced by a Missile (surface-to-air eg SA-11 (Buk), or possibly air-to-air).

But shrapnel from a missile would pierce the Cockpit in only ONE direction.

Revelations of German Pilot: Shocking Analysis of the "Shooting Down" of Malaysian MH17. "Aircraft Was Not Hit by a Missile"

By Peter Haisenko

Global Research, July 30, 2014 anderweltonline.com

http://www.globalresearch.ca/german-pilot-speaks-out-shocking-analysis-of-the-shooting-down-of-malaysian-mh17/5394111

The tragedy of Malaysian MH 017 continues to elude any light of clarity being cast over it. [...]

First, I was amazed at how few photos can be found from the wreckage with Google. All are in low resolution, except one: The fragment of the cockpit below the window on the pilots side. ...

The cockpit shows traces of shelling! You can see the entry and exit holes. The edge of a portion of the holes is bent inwards. These are the smaller holes, round and clean, showing the entry points most likely that of a 30 millimeter caliber projectile. The edge of the other, the larger and slightly frayed exit holes showing shreds of metal pointing produced by the same caliber projectiles. Moreover, it is evident that at these exit holes of the outer layer of the double aluminum reinforced structure are shredded or bent ­ outwardly! Furthermore, minor cuts can be seen, all bent outward, which indicate that shrapnel had forcefully exited through the outer skin from the inside of the cockpit. The open rivets are are also bent outward. ...

So what could have happened? Russia recently published radar recordings, that confirm at least one Ukrainian SU 25 in close proximity to MH 017. This corresponds with the statement of the now missing Spanish controller ÔCarlos' that has seen two Ukrainian fighter aircraft in the immediate vicinity of MH 017. If we now consider the armament of a typical SU 25 we learn this: It is equipped with a double-barreled 30-mm gun, type GSh-302 / AO-17A, equipped with: a 250 round magazine of anti-tank incendiary shells and splinter-explosive shells (dum-dum), arranged in alternating order. The cockpit of the MH 017 has evidently been fired at from both sides: the entry and exit holes are found on the same fragment of it's cockpit segment!

(4) Witness says Ukrainian warplane took off with air-to-air missiles, returned without them

Here are the reports from ABC Australia and dw.de in Germany:

MH17: Russian investigators claim proof from witness that Ukrainian pilot involved in downing of flight

Thu 25 Dec 2014, 5:44am

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-12-24/russia-claims-new-proof-ukraine-involved-in-downing-of-mh17/5988140

Russian investigators say they have new proof from a witness that a Ukrainian pilot fired a missile on the day of the Malaysia Airlines crash which killed 298 people, including 38 Australians.

The witness, who was not named, worked at an airfield in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk where he claimed to have seen a warplane take off on July 17 with air-to-air missiles and return without them.

An Investigative Committee statement said the testimony of the man "is important proof that Ukrainian military was implicated in the crash of the Boeing-777". ...

The witness was filmed by Russian tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda with his back to the camera and even the back of his head blurred.

He said he saw a Sukhoi-25 jet take off armed with air-to-air rockets and return to the base without them.

"[The plane's operator] could have launched them into the Boeing out of fear or revenge," the witness said, identifying the pilot of the jet as having the surname Voloshin.

"Maybe he mistook it for another plane."

Komsomolskaya Pravda claimed the witness showed up at its office and that his identity checked out but did not identify him because his family was still in Ukraine. ... ==
