UPDATE: Nov. 2, 2015
Apparently, the similarities are more stunning than I thought.
Though it’s too early to cry “foul play” in the downing of Russian Metrojet Flight 7K9268 in the troubled Sinai region of Egypt, it is possible to take a look at some striking similarities between the tragic crash of this airliner and those of some of the most recent crashes in aviation history.
Egyptian authorities who are leading up the investigation into the crash have already ruled out an act of terrorism as being the cause of the crash. Seems kind of odd that they could do that so early into the investigation especially considering the dramatic flight data recording from Flight Radar 24.
As you can see, Flight 7K9268 suffered a sudden and massive loss of altitude. This kind of descent usually suggests a catastrophic event on the plane.
To my knowledge, there are no credible reports of the pilots putting out a “mayday” call which also indicates something catastrophic occurred suddenly to the flight.
At first we were told to focus on the weather in the area at the time of the crash as well as the “mountainous” region they were flying through.That would one with the impression that the plane encountered rough weather and crashed into the side of a mountain while trying to under the front.
A quick Google Earth review of the area shows it was rough terrain, but the authorities were able to get there extremely quickly, with ambulances arriving on the scene within hours.
So that made me wonder about how rough this terrain really was. Then I saw the images from the crash site.
I see a lot of debris and total devastation of the airliner, but what I don’t see are any mountains. So the area might be a mountainous region, but they certainly didn’t crash into one.
Of course, you saw the same thing with Flight MH-17 and MH-370 didn’t you?
MH-17 dropped off the radar immediately and we now know it was because it was struck by either a rocket launched from a ground-based BUK system (probably owned and operated by the government of Ukraine) or it was shot down by a fighter pilot working for that same government.
And though people would like you to believe MH-370 was the most stealthy plane in history, magically flying invisibly from the South China Sea all the way down to Australia, the reality is, it dropped off the radar in the South China Sea just as the other two planes did and probably still rests in those very shallow waters.
I will update this article as more of the technical information on this crash becomes available today.
Right now though, I would like to focus on something that’s not getting as much attention, but should be in my opinion and that is the particular political environment that surrounds this region as well as those surrounding the other two crashes I mentioned.
Just briefly to recap:
Flight MH-17: this flight went down as an attempt at a false flag operation. It was deliberately redirected over a conflict zone and then taken out, by whatever means, in order to point the finger at the separatists in the Donbass region. Of course, Russia was tacitly blamed as well by those who still to this day, without any evidence at all, try to assert that Russia provided the BUK system to the rebels which took out this flight.
The region is important to the IMF and other international financial/oil interests and they wanted a blank check for our new puppet regime in Ukraine to be able to launch brutal attacks on the people in the area in order to reclaim the territory on behalf of interests like Royal Dutch Shell and others.
Not surprisingly, the home country of Royal Dutch Shell led the “investigation” into the downing of Flight MH-17 and their conclusions were not only incomplete, they also seem to be rather disingenuous.
Flight MH-370: this flight dropped off the radar in the South China Sea during a war-games exercise being run by the United States. There were two cruise missile destroyers in the area where a witness saw a commercial airliner burning in the night sky in the exact same area where Flight MH-370 dropped off the radar at exactly the same time. That report was quickly forgotten, the man who made the report via official channels at that time was quickly fired from his job and the wild goose chase was on to redirect the search efforts to everywhere and anywhere that wasn’t the South China Sea.
The area of the South China Sea is heavily contested. It’s an important trade route for the United States and China as well and the oligarchs of this country wish to dominate it and control it in an effort to capture complete control over all vital trade routes in that area. It’s part of the “pivot to Asia” plan and that was the purpose of running a military drill in the area at that time. More than likely, the downing of Flight MH-370 was a horrible accident like the tragic downing of Flight 800 off the eastern seaboard of the United States. And like that horrific accident, the US military couldn’t allow the general population to know of their mistake, so it was covered up and to this day, Flight MH-370 remains the ONLY commercial airliner crash to never be found or recovered.
The reason for that is simple and quite obvious.
As you can see, in both of these circumstances, the geographical location as well as the political environment contributed to the downing of the planes. The subsequent “investigations” or lack thereof, tends to lend support to the theories that something rather nefarious caused their demises.
So let’s take a look at…
Flight 7K9268: The Sinai Peninsula is essentially Egypt.. but it’s not. That’s because there has been an uprising taking place over there for quite sometime.
Some will try to tell you this is “ISIS” and has only been going on for a short while. That’s bullshit.
Back before the Egyptian revolution which replaced our previous puppet Mubarak, the people of Sinai were up in arms against his dictatorship.
For a brief time after the first election in that country after that revolution, when the Muslim Brotherhood won by a landslide and Morsi became president, things in Sinai got better and the violence ended.
But then, John Kerry went over and demanded Morsi sign a deal with the IMF and give up on the new constitution which would make IMF austerity measures unconstitutional and when he refused, Kerry simply convinced the corrupt al Sisi to take over via a military coup.
The political party, the Muslim Brotherhood was declared illegal, al Sisi killed over a thousand protesters to hang onto power and then he started rounding up MB political leaders across the country. They arrested thousands of them, killing many in the process.
Suddenly, the Sinai was inflamed once again.
Not hard to understand, right?
Now, the US is completely behind the brutal al Sisi dictatorship in Egypt. So is Israel, by the way.
The troubles in Sinai have been plaguing al Sisi for a while. They even tried to pretend “ISIS” was in Sinai in order to provide his military some cover for their brutal bombings in their efforts to pacify the rebels.
Of course, “ISIS” always goes where we need them to go, right?
But “ISIS” in Egypt is simply ridiculous. This conflict has been going on for a decade at least and it’s always been about the indigenous people of Sinai refusing to bow down to whatever puppet dictator the West deems necessary for their national interests at the time.
A couple months back, the Muslim Brotherhood put out a call for open hostility toward the corrupt al Sisi regime. new anti-terrorism laws and the murder of several Muslim Brotherhood officials led them to that decision. The US of course, as they usually do, stood firmly with the dictator.
Egypt’s state news agency MENA says the Cabinet has approved an anti-terrorism draft law as well as a long-awaited draft election law.
The approval came as Egyptian troops struggled to fend off a massive assault by Islamic militants in the northern Sinai Peninsula that killed more than 50 soldiers. On Monday, Egypt’s chief prosecutor was assassinated in a Cairo bombing.
Both draft laws now await President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi’s approval before they can be passed by decree.
The MENA report did not describe the proposed laws.
Egyptian media reported Tuesday that the anti-terrorism law would give prosecutors more powers to detain suspects for long periods of time and enable authorities to inspect the bank accounts of those facing terror-related charges.
The United States has strongly condemned the massive coordinated attack on Egyptian troops that killed at least 53 soldiers in the northern Sinai Peninsula.
White House spokesman Ned Price says Wednesday’s assault is a terrorist attack and that the U.S. “stands resolutely” with Egypt. He says the U.S. extends condolences to the relatives of those who died, as well as to the government and the Egyptian people.
The White House says the U.S. will continue working in partnership with Egypt to address threats to its security amid a series of recent attacks.

The rebels fighting in Sinai are dismissed as “terrorists” or “extremists”. That’s what they always do when people actively reject our ‘centrist” IMF/World Bank neo-liberal ideology.
But it wasn’t until recently they decided to take advantage of our favorite enemy of the day, “ISIS”, and label these guys as being “linked” to “ISIS” in order to win the “hearts and minds” propaganda campaign globally.
You see, they don’t want the image of their new dictator tarnished quite so soon after he assumes his office on behalf of US “national interests”… so “ISIS” is brought in.
Now you might think that the “ISIS” connection in this case is rather distant, but, unfortunately, the film makers and propagandists who make up the “ISIS” propaganda movement have already inserted themselves into the discussion of Flight 7K9268.
Yes, “ISIS” has already tried to take credit for the downing of the plane. They did that by posting an old video of a plane being brought down and some photos of a plane crash that just happened to be of some other plane.
They’ve even put together nifty graphics featuring what appears to be some Irish “ISIS” guy with one of John McCain’s shoulder mounted rocket launchers.
No one is buying this crap. Not even heavy.com who will buy pretty much any BS propaganda they’ve been fed.
Egyptian security is trying to say there are reports of the pilots requesting an emergency landing after reporting technical issues on board and some unconfirmed stories are out there about the co-pilot saying the plane was in need of some repairs to his wife.
Looks and sounds to me like all those stories about Flight MH-370’s co-pilot wanting to commit suicide via plane crash if you ask me.
In all likelihood Flight 7k9268 was taken out by some form of military action, probably initiated by the Egyptian military or those, like the US, who support their efforts to pacify the people of the region.
The claims of responsibility by “ISIS” show how some are attempting to take advantage of the ‘crisis’ to serve those interests.
Whether it was downed by accident like Flight 800 and Flight 370 or done on purpose like Iran Air Flight 655 and Flight MH-17 is still anyone’s guess.
And like Flight 17, we can trust the investigating nation to obfuscate as much as possible when it comes to determining the real cause of the crash and the loss of so many Russian lives.
It’s also worth noting that the United States is currently involved in one of the most important negotiations of the Obama administration’s tenure, that which will determine just how much of Syria they are allowed to steal in order to create their new oil dynasty, Greater Kurdistan.
All of this leads me to believe something more nefarious than a tragic accident took place in the clear skies above Sinai yesterday.
More info will eventually leak out and that opinion may change but for now, I can’t help but focus on the political circumstances surrounding this tragic event and I can’t help but remember just how brutal these people are when it comes to using military aggression against civilians targets in order to get what they want.
Were it not for that current climate in Sinai and the recent history of Flight 17 and the Doctors Without Borders attacks, I might not tend to assume as much. But, as they say, if history teaches us nothing….
That said… the Russians are not going to tolerate another Flight MH-17 whitewash. They are already on the ground in the area and will certainly lead the investigation themselves.
Shoulder mounted rockets are designed to take out low flying gunships and not commercial airliners flying at 32,000 feet. They simply can’t reach a target at that altitude.
So any attempts to put this on the insurgents in Sinai would be problematic at best. They simply don’t have the hardware to do it.
I could be that someone hijacked control of the flight remotely. But that would leave tell-tale signs in the flight data recorder and cockpit voice data recorders. A risky gambit considering whomever could or would do that must have known Russia would conduct the investigation.
So that leaves basically two possible conclusions: 1. it came down due to a massive on-board system failure and 2. some kind of on-board terrorism angle. The CIA is fond of suitcase bombs aren’t they? Maybe they’ll blame the Iranians again.
Either way, it’s a horrible tragedy. My heart goes out to the families of the people killed yesterday. We’ll wait and see how the situation on the ground there develops. Unfortunately, when my own government has such a horrible track record, I can’t help but defer to false flag terrorism as my default position. Hopefully I’ll be wrong this time around… this time.
