Separatist Commander Claims Downed Plane Was Carrying a Load of Dead Bodies

 

Colonel Igor Strelkov (aka Strelok —real name Girkin), Moscow resident, retired military intelligence agent, and self-proclaimed supreme commander of separatist forces claims that most of the passengers aboard Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 had been dead for several days before the crash. Strelkov/Strelok/Girkin came to this conclusion through reports of rescuers that the bodies were not “fresh” and were not covered in blood. Yes, Strelkov admits that the pilots were alive when the missile struck and that the cockpit was full of their blood. At least he doesn’t have to explain how the 777 flew itself to eastern Ukraine.

It is unclear what Strelkov is getting at, but my guess is that his theory is that the CIA/State Department/Ukrainian security forces loaded the 777 with bodies in Amsterdam and then found a suicidal crew to fly the plane to its planned meeting with a surface-to-air missile prepared in advance by these sinister forces.

Sounds reasonable to me. I don’t see why anyone would doubt him.

Strelkov is also noted for dispensing summary capital punishment, a la Stalin, and for billboards that portray him as a muscular heroic “man of steel” (a title Stalin also used).

It’s worth remembering that the Europeans are trying to convince Ukraine to negotiate peace with the leaders of the separatist movement in east Ukraine. What a circus that would be. Merkel and Hollande: don’t insist on anything that ridiculous.

     My guess is that he’s been watching BBC’s Sherlock, as this was almost exactly the plot of season 2, episode 1.

    Well, at least the world can better see the insanity of these people.

    Where are all the Western apologists for Russia’s terrorism now? (they seemed rather active when Russian invaded Crimea)

    Justice needs to be delivered to this vile piece of filth. The swifter the better.

     That’s the first thing that came to my mind.

    If next thing happens, Putin jumps off a roof and “dies”, we’ll know for sure.

    What’s really sad is that much of the Left will actually buy this sort of crap.

    These guys don’t need to watch TV. They simply go back to their old bag of tricks from their Soviet KGB days.

    The tragedy is that it takes a tragedy to get the world’s attention. I doubt that MH17 will affect the Putin apologists in the US, where they are swayed by leftist ideology, and in Europe, where they are swayed by ideology and money.

     In fairness to the Russians, seeing conspiracy theories everywhere was a perfectly rational response to life in the Soviet Union. Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.
