    There are over 6000 of A-320s built and the majority still fly today. If there is something seriously wrong with its design (think of one that nearly crashed last year due to wrong altitude reading)it would mean an end to many companies and an end to French-German Airbus Industries.

    Solution - blame it on human error. Pay $300m to victim families. Been done in the past.

    I am not saying this is the case here, but it could be.

    But having a rich German kid who was living his dream of being a pilot end it in such bizarre way does not sound as probable in my book.

    The concept is much older. In 1978 ex-CIA hitman Nikola Kavaja hijacked a Boeing 707 airliner in NYC. Objective - to fly it to Europe and smash it into skyscraper that was symbol of Dictator Tito's Communist regime. His plan soured and he got 20 years in prison.

    There was also another older movie, cannot recall it's name, about Air force One being hijacked for the same purpose.

    There is only one problem with the concept of airliners being used as a missiles. Their engines compress air. Due to air density close to the ground, when they fly at very low altitude they can not fly faster than 250 knots. The only way to gain high speed at low altitude is to nosedive them from cruising speed at high altitude, but they would probably disintegrate mid-air. So airliners as missiles is is mostly Tom Clancy/F-X territory.

    Two centuries earlier, in the Battle of Neva (1240) Swedes did similar folly. Heavily armored Swedish and Norwegian knights entered the mouth of River Neva and went upstream. Their boats could barely move due to weight. Ruskies closed their retreat route and destroyed them at Ladoga lake. Alexander, the prince who lead the charge got name Nevsky after this victory.

    Every Russian kid knows this story. I wonder how many West Point grads know it.

    From the Russian perspective, it is waves upon waves of Zombies coming from the West - be it Vatican-inspired Swedes, Napoleon, French-British or Hitler, it starts the same way (sustained heavy Russian losses), and ends the same way - by the total annihilation of the invaders. Ruskies' moves are predictable. They fight on their soil and they will not allow another 20 million Russians be murdered by the new Nazis. They will use nukes. First strike, retaliatory, does not matter, it will be equally bad for everyone.

    The question is - what is the end game? Mutual joint destruction of U.S.A. and Russia, like taken from James Bond movie? It looks more and more probable with every passing day.

    The rest of the world and the ICAO did not respond with a ban on American civil aviation on the international airways after shooting down Iran Air 655, although it was proven beyond reasonable doubt that Iran Air 655 was shor down by USS Vincennes

    In the same vein, the rest of the world and the ICAO did not respond with a ban on Ukrainian civil aviation on the international airways after Ukraine shot down Air Siberia 1812 in 2001.

    I wonder, on what grounds you would ban Russian civil aviation after an Ukrainian military pilot (most likely LTC Dmitro Yakatsuts), flying Ukraine military jet shot down civilian airliner?

    >>>>>>>The Soviet union had seventy odd years to perfect propaganda and this is the caliber of work they are capable of? Somebody in the secret state police needs to work on their photoshop skills.<<<<<

    Soviet propaganda, like Nazi propaganda was modeled upon the seminal work of Edward Bernays, chief U.S. propagandist during WW I. So, U.S. got some 10 years' worth of know-how advantage, and it shows.

    But let's talk about the actual shooting down of an airliner by the Ukrainian AF.

    Ukraine had 13 years to perfect shooting down of civilian airliner in cold blood. The first one they shot down in 2001 was Flight 1812 of Air Siberia and left too many traces, i.e. thermal signature of SAM missile. This time they resorted to 30 mm cannon fire. No fuss, no muss, especiall when the examiners are looking in the other direction.

    The name of perp is most likely known: LTC Dmitro Yakatsuts. He shot MH17 down in cold blood and murdered 298 people.

    German lawyers are already ready to get compensation to the families of murdered MH17 passengers Ukrainians murdered. There is also precedent for it - in 2003 Ukraine had to compensate the families of Israeli and Russian passengers.

    That's the reason why this story is off the msm radar.

    As John Mc Cain explained"Fighting for KLA (Albanian terrorist group) is fighting for American values".

    After 78 days of savage bombing of Serbia on behalf of Islamonazis, U.S.-led NATO occupied Serbian province of Kosovo. As the result, over 100,000 Serbs, Roma, Croats were ethically cleansed and KLA was allowed to commit horrendous crimes. KLA murdered in impunity more than 1000 Serbs and 1000 Albanians they considered traitors, set up chop shops to murder young people and harvest their organs. More than 10 000 homes were torched and over 100 000 were looted. NATO troops stood idle and looked the other way.

    Then EULEX was brought in to provide the fig leaf of legality. In reality, system of apartheid was enforced - Serbs and Roma were forced to live in compounds behind barbed wire fences. The only NATO troops protecting them were Italians. Germans, French and Americans looked the other way when the crimes were taking place.

    Medieval Christian churches and monasteries were razed to the ground and looted. European antiquities markets were flooded with looted gooos. Again, the police of numerous countries looked the other way. Albanians set up labs for high volume narcotics production, and DEA looks the the other way.

    Then, with American help, Kosovo Albanians declared independence in 2008, in violation of UNSEC 1244 resolution.

    Today, Kosovo under Albanian misrule is a recruiting ground for AQ and ISIS.

    The biggest irony is that in order to help Islamonazis United States lost New American Century in Kosovo,even before it began.

    There are thousands of eyewitnesses of what I wrote - National Guardsmen and U.S. Army members who were on rotation in Kosovo since 1999.

    Yet, the majority remain silent of what they saw. I wonder how they can sleep at night. May God have mercy on their souls.

    In 2002, PM Jean Creten mingled with Hamas and declared that Hamas is not a terrorist group. Creten was in Lebanon, on Frankophonie summit, spending my and your tax dollars aiding and abetting terrorists.

    On several occasions, Sharia law was almost introduced in Canada. Thanks to the morons you approve of, financed with my and your tax dollara to spread Dar Ul Islam to Canada.

    Insane levels of immigration from Dar Ul Islam are sponsored by the highest echelons of power. It is breeding ground for what we have seen today.

    And today, DND ordered that Canadian soldiers in Canada must not wear uniform in public !!! It is appeasement of the worst kind, surrender to Islamonazi terrorists. Instead, DND should have ordered Canadian soldiers to have FMJ in their weapons and "pull out, make my day" pins on their lapels. The only problem is that DND does not want to upset ISIS, Canadian ally in Syria. DND is busy trying to topple Assad, the last regime in ME standing against Islamonazis and protecting Christians.

    The fact is, Canada supports Islamofascist terrorism abroad and those perps are brothers in arms. Chicken came home to roost.

    In 1999 Canada terrorized Serbian population for 78 days in support of Islamofascist terrorists and helped murder and maim thousands. RCAF was acting as Islamofascist airforce. Afte the conflict was over, Canada assisted Islamofascist to purge Christians from their land. And Canada is PROUD of this crime to the present day.

    In 2011, Canada took an active role to terrorize Libyan population on behalf of Islamofascist terrorists and acted as their airforce.

    When it comes to support to Islamonazis abroad, Canadian Conservatives are no different than Canadian lieberals.

    There is a difference between the recordings made by CVR in the cockpit and recordings made at ATC ON THE GROUND.

    ICAO stipulates what conditions must be met for ATC recordings (voce, data, radar) and how long recordings must be kept

    ICAO Document describing it and giving recommendations.

    CVR records sound of what is happening in the cockpit as well as voice communication with ATC. It can not record ATC communication with other aircraft on other frequency, nor radar feed in ATC.

    ICAO requeres that ATC recordings are kept for at least two weeks if there is no crash and as long as needed if there is a crash. KIEV ATC recordings were not given to the international investigative team. It has nothing do do with intact Black boxes (orange box on the picture) given to Investigators in U.K.

    Bombing Assad to topple ISIS makes as much sense as allowing people from West Africa to roam freely in the U.S. to fight Ebola.

    Neocons arm islamofascists wherever they find them.

    If there are none, they import them and then prop them up.

    ISIS = IISS = $

    They offed Gaddafi because he interfered with their maniacal plan to turn entire ME into Islamofascist caliphate. Under their control, the arms from Libya stockpiles went to arm Hamas and newly created ISIS. Nothing new - British Empire invented Wahhabism and Gamma Islamiya (Muslim Brotherhood).

    When neocons failed miserably to attack Syria openly and their "opposition forces" made of AQ and other assorted scum failed to topple Assad, they stepped up efforts to create ISIS/ISIL/ and attack Syria under the smokescreen of bombing ISIS/ISIL.

    There is something else to watch out when leaving Canada. Up to $10,000 Canadian can be taken out from Canada without declaring it to the Customs. However, with Canadian dollar exchange rate fluctuating daily, you may end up having more than $10K Canadian although it was worth less than $10K when you took it out from the bank/forex office.

    And guess what, Customs will confiscate ALL of it, not only peanut change over $10K. As a rule of a thumb, never carry cash worth more than $9K Canadian.

    >>>>>>How about you link to the source of your allegation that there is 14 minutes of “radio silence?” I’d like to see it before it gets pulled.<<<<<<<

    I wrote : ...Not the recorder from MH17 showing alleged 14 minutes radio silence FROM OTHER AIRLINERS IN THE VICINITY.

    Why this is important: there is chatter in the air between commercial airliners on the same or similar flight paths. There were several in the air nearby during the last 14 minutes before MH17 went down.

    Preliminary report (I gave the link) does not mention ANY chatter going on for the last 14 minutes being heard in MH17 cockpit. According to commercial pilots, no chatter for such a long time is near impossible to happen.

    Received transmissions from other aircraft are recorded by the black box. The report is not mentioning it.

    The published conclusion states “Crew communication gave no indication that there was anything abnormal with the flight.”

    This sentence can be read in several ways, like horoscope. It is interpretation of the actual event, not the fact.

    The actual crew conversation in the cockpit, the actual conversation with ATC is not mentioned at all.

    It cast a shadow on the report - if this known known element is left out (transmits from other aicraft) , how reliably we can trust that unknown is not also edited?

    There are no lies in the report, however, ambiguous meanings are unusual for the high profile crash report. Evel lesser Crash reports arewritten in precise way to eliminate any arbitrary or double meaning.

    The deal struck between Ukraine and other parties (The Netherlands, Malaysia, ICAO) all parties must agree on all inforomation being released. It is "truth by consent", not "truth and nothing but the truth." Hence weasel wording.

    Can you point me to the source where it can be seen that the recording of the conversation between Kiev ATC and MH17 recorded IN ATC was given to the commission?

    Not the recorder from MH17 showing alleged 14 minutes radio silence from other airliners in vicinity. Preliminary report uses non-specific and rather unusual language full of weasel wording and unheard of terminology (e.g. high-energy objects). Preliminary report does not say anything. Question is why?

    With $30M reward on the table, some of your Kiev junta pals will speak up. Then you can keep your gallows humor to cheer the perps up.

    Let them check the recordings between Kiev ATC and MH17.

    Should we call them "30 million dollar tapes".

    Some from the Kiev junta may be tempted.

    I guess that he somehow either prevented or not delivered on promise to give downtown location to mobsters to open gambling venue.

    After this multibillion gambling deal sizzled, the attacks on his personal life suddenly started. I believe it is connection worth investigating.

    There is even fiction book based on Ford as a mayor.

    >>>>>>Instead, they'll be subjected to the teachings of the radical Islamist group.>>>>>

    English translation for Dhimmis: they will study Qur'an and Hadith.

    "Radical Islamist group" does what Qur'an and Hadith say. No more, no less.

    On 25 April 1915, British/ANZAC offensive failed. The Turkish commander charging counteroffensive was certain Mustafa Kemal, who got promoted to colonel because of this. It was the beginning of his stellar career.

    For those who did not recognize the character, he was later known as Mustafa Kemal Pasha a.k.a. Ataturk .
