First, let me say this: as I have stated from the beginning, I am not sure about the relative validity one way or the other of the image that surfaced yesterday which purports to be of a Ukrainian fighter jet downing Flight MH17 with an air to air missile.
For the record, I still believe my original conclusions on the subject of the downing of the plane is correct: that the entire crash scene was staged with the assistance of crews from the coal mining billionaire’s miners who just happened to be the first on the scene and who just happen to work for a man who strongly supports the junta regime in Kiev.
One of the main reasons I came to that conclusion after looking at the obviously staged debris field, is that I knew then the last thing anyone would have wanted as they were planning this color revolution and anti-Russian campaign, is for an image like this one to surface. Had they actually shot down Flight MH17, it would be very easy for Russia to come along with satellite images and blow their new fascist regime clean out of office.
That was my initial conclusion and I have as of yet seen nothing to conclusively convince me otherwise.
However, one might think that I would therefore be compelled to jump all over the debunking trend which appears to be all the rage right now in the real alternative and the fake alternative news groups.
One would be wrong.
What I do here is report on the evidence at hand, no matter where it leads. That’s what I have always done, that’s what I will always do. So I will carefully look at the various streams of “proofs” being offered up out there one at a time.
- Wrong Fighter Plane
- 50km distance to target
- Google Mapping
- Not Flight MH17
- Image Taken from Too Low an Altitude to be from a Satellite
- And then there’s Bellingcat
There have been a lot of people all over Twitter and Facebook ready willing and able to jump on this image immediately declaring it to be a hoax. That may in fact be true. But I have noticed a great deal of those people are running with incomplete and shoddy reports and some are even downright deceitful in how they make their presentation.
If you have been at this as long as I have you come to understand when evidence like this appears (and it seems to have appeared first back in Oct of this year) and starts to gain traction, disinfo assets swarm on it with whatever line of discrediting BS they can come up with. There’s a lot to be gleaned from that when they do it.
Now again, I’m not saying this image is definitely real. But let’s take a look at some of the disinformation that is being spread around and see if we can’t at least separate the wheat from the chaff.
