… initial Thoughts on MH17 [#plane shoot down in Ukraine]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 18th,2014

.. what a god – awful tragedy …

.. those folks were or are returning home , or were traveling to a vacation site …

.. now , they are gone ; casualties of someone else ‘ s war …

.. we do not know who did it . Not yet , obviously .

.. it brings back memories of the KAL 007 downing on 09/01/1983 . Boy , was that an entirely different time . Many , many innocents killed , as it turns out , deliberately , by Soviet Air Defence aircraft . A US Congressman , Lanny McDonald , of Georgia , was among the dead on board …

.. I was wondering , why was that passenger jet anywhere near a war zone . Especially with modern munitions and missiles . Either shoulder – fired missiles or a modern radar – guided missile battery brought down that jet ….

.. first MH370 , now MH 17 . This has not been Malaysia ‘ s year , that is obvious …

… You Would Have Thought By Now …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,April 27th,2014

.. that these idiots would have learned ..

.. unfortunately , it appears that they have not . Sadly , it appears that history is starting to repeat itself in Ukraine , in particular , in the eastern part of the country …

.. people have been passing out these leaflets [see below] :

eastern Ukraine (Jewish reg flyer)

.. basically , they call for all of the Jewish folk in the area to register with their local authorities , or else …

.. these things are sick , the height of anti – Semitism , and grotesque , and disgusting …

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. have not these people [I would accuse the Russians of this] learned from their history , especially from their recent history . Ukrainians know better than most . More than 10 million Ukrainians of all faiths were murdered during the 1930s by the ” Liquidations ” by the N.K.V.D. under the Soviet Union and Josef Stalin . Worse was to come during World War iI ..

.. Virtually all of Ukraine was a battlefield throughout the war . Many millions more were killed . Probably more Ukrainians were killed (murdered) during the war [in percent terms] by far than even Russians . Much of Russia was also a battlefield , but Russia is far larger , both in terms of land area , and in terms of population . Stalin did not ” liquidate ” Russians as a people as he did Ukrainians during the ’30s , and much of the Soviet Union ‘ s jewish population , then and now , was and is located in Ukraine , not Russia ..

… Amazing That They Would Do This [Russian Ploy in Ukraine]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,April 26th,2014

.. I had heard of the ploy with the Jewish residents of Ukraine , especially those who are the Jewish residents of the eastern and southeastern sections of that nation , who were demanded in flyers to register themselves and their property , or to be deported …

.. originally , I thought that it could have been Ukrainian radicals who pulled the stunt …

.. but , considering the level of diplomatic and military chess in Russia , I realized that it was much more likely that it was pro – Russian east Ukrainians , or even Russians themselves …. but , why ?? …

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..
.. [link] to the commentary ..

.. I realized , as has Bill Kristol [the fellow in the commentary , the editor of theWeeklyStandard] … that the Russians were the most likely culprit . They would want to turn world opinion against Ukraine . Guess why ??

.. so far , world sympathies have been with Ukraine . Especially after the Second Orange Revolution in the Maidan Square , earlier this year . The Russians would pay virtually any price if they could get away with it to turn world opinion against Ukraine …
