Malaysian Plane (flight MH17), Russia, Ukraine and Politics and Truth
its a small world
As we all know, yesterday a Malaysian Plane (flight MH17) was apparently shot down over an area of
the Pro Russian Ukrainians with what is thought to be a Russian supplied ground
to air missile system. And although they deny it the overwhelming evidence
supports this view. One could argue it
is foolish to supply such a weapon to a rag tag amateur army who have appeared
to be somewhat trigger happy in recent times. The Russians however would argue
that they are supporting their colleagues over the border against the puppets
of the decadent western powers. Ukraine
We would have to assume that this was in many ways a terrible accident and that they really did think that the plane was a Ukrainian Transport plane, but it is no less sad and appalling for that. However what I find just as bad is that, even though Russia must know who did this they seem to blame the Kiev Government for what happened. They are saying that it happened because the Ukrainians who want closer links to the west are attacking the pro Russian Ukrainians. Interestingly they are not saying that the Pro Russian Ukrainians did not do it, and to me President Putin statement yesterday seemed very chilled, I am glad he is not my leader, although I am not a fan of the one I have either or the potential future ones.
Wars are not nice, terrible thing have and will always happen, but it does not mean that people should not be brought to account for their actions when it is possible to do so. The innocent with no say or involvement should not die or be tortured because of the power struggles of others. Maybe the people of power such as President Putin should consider morality a little more and be honest about events like this and tell the truth.
I live in ever declining hope that one day the human race will be better than it presently is,
