MH17 – Beating the drums for war

propaganda

Something is wrong. I don’t know what exactly, but I can say that the version of events the U.S. State Department is offering is nothing short of pathetic. In this link, U.S. State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf continuously repeats that it was an SA11 fired from Russian backed separatist held territory, that social media supports their theory, that they are confident and know this to be accurate according to their assessment (that they haven’t made public). She went on to repeat this narrative for the duration of the exchange, and adeptly kept to her beaten path. She may as well be an automaton. A mouthpiece regurgitating what it had been programmed to say. Propaganda du jour.

 

What do we know?

Well, although kind of dangerous to fly through Ukraine, it wasn’t alone in doing so. What was unique to flight MH17, was that it flew over Donetsk, choosing not to follow the official corridor that commercial traffic had been using, and fly over an extremely dangerous airspace as it found out. Why did it change its course while transiting through Ukrainian airspace? Additionally, I’m not sure why Ukrainian Air-traffic control told flight MH17 to fly at 33,000 ft, apparently optimum was 35,000 ft. Incidentally, the BUK missile system has a range of up to 50,000 ft.

Counter claim. According to the Russians, a Ukrainian SU-25 fighter jet was observed in the vicinity of MH-17, flying in a corridor reserved for commercial traffic, in range of its air-to-air missiles. So far the US hasn’t released any data to counter this.

Who stood to gain?

Western controlled media swiftly pointed the finger at Putin. He is being painted as the culprit, although their has been no evidence to prove this. The U.S has not delivered anything concrete, nothing that would generate a conviction. With the U.S and allies igniting war and chaos in the middle East and so forth, and Ukraine being the pivot into Russia (read Zbigniew Brzezinski’s book titled “The Grand Chessboard”), it would not surprise me if the U.S had deliberately created this incident to serve as a false flag. This is what the U.S State Department and the various intelligence agencies do. It’s their forte. Not that Russia is good and the U.S evil, I simply ask what is the upside for the Russians to take down an airliner full of civilians? It is not a victory in any sense (perhaps you can offer an intelligent reason in the comments section). The plane wasn’t carrying special cargo to my knowledge, and it would not serve to win any hearts and minds for Russia. The plane was carrying people from all around the globe, the victims were international, mainly Dutch and Australians. Not a single Ukrainian government official on board. Only the U.S had something to gain. If it can pull out the drum, and make a beat for war, rekindling the cold war mentality and dredging up past grievances, perhaps it can go to war again. They still need the majority of the populace to believe the official narrative. They haven’t got a robot army yet.

 

UPDATE:

Flight MH17 ordered to change course minutes before being shot down. Ukrainian air-traffic control audio logs have been seized.

So, Ukrainian air-traffic control orders MH17 to fly at 33,000 ft, then permits it to stray from the safe corridor in order to fly over Donetsk minutes before it was taken out. The official transcripts are seized in Ukraine. The Western propaganda machine immediately implicates Putin. No evidence provided. Just immediate finger pointing.

Noting that their was a possible SU-25 trailing MH17 (according to the Russians) in the commercial air corridor, probably tracking MH-17 and within distance to use its air-to-air missiles, and claims that from senior Ukraine military figures that Ukraine doesn’t have the know how or capability to operate advanced AA systems, then I ask the question. Did the Ukraine government, backed by the U.S government, take out MH17 over rebel territory in order to blame Russia and villanize Putin? Again, what would Putin and Russia have to gain? There is no strategic value in taking down an airliner! Only false flag opportunities for the maniacs who are starting up a possible WWIII! Whether by a surface-to-air or an air-to-air missile, it is looking very likely that the Ukrainian government took out this flight because it was told to do so. It has a temporary ally in the U.S. That is bad news Ukraine. Iraq is completely fucked!

Perfect moral hazard – Privatizing gains, externalizing costs

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”

What version of capitalism places zombie financial institutions on life-support using super cheap liquidity pumped into the zombies’ veins via central banks?

The Long and the Short of it

So, the major banks, central banks, and government haven’t been prudent. Hell, they haven’t even been incompetent. In my opinion, they have been about as responsible as a group of children guarding a room full of other peoples candy. The oversight being the children’s parents, whom only bother to look in periodically, and then only occasionally fining each child 5 pieces of candy for every time they were caught misappropriating the candy, just so they appear to be doing their job.

The banking system a few years ago

When the banks ran out of candy and could no longer hide it, the government burst into action to keep these failed institutions alive by filling them back up with candy. The great bail out of 2008. The government simply used the candy taken from the people, to keep specific candy shops in business. They were just to big to let fail. So it seemed like business as usual. All was well again in the land of cognitive dissonance. Until… Cyprus ran out of candy. Out of nowhere, candy vanished from Cyprus, and their major banks were looking likely to fall. BitCandy rose in value suddenly, and candy stores went on holiday. People were disenchanted once again, but this time it was different. The concept of candy haircuts was posited in the media for all. It would only be about 1 or 2%, the Cypriots were told. Only the final figure was officially 47.5%. although in reality it may even be more. Depositors in Laiki bank and the Bank of Cyprus have been taken for a ride on the chicanery train. That was the time for the Cypriots to disembark the system, take control and purge their system of this toxic candy, and repopulate their government. I guess they shrugged it off. As, the haircut was only for uninsured deposits over 100,000. Nobody went hungry this time.

The banking system today, circa 2014

Today it’s better than ever. Citizens of some European countries have become enlightened, and forced their respective governments to concede that their golden chocolate bars, that they had faithfully entrusted with the United States of America and Great Britain, had undergone rehypothecation, and been sold to someone else, and someone else, and someone else again. The game of musical chairs must eventually stop. Ten players and one chair. Who will be left with the golden chocolate bars, who will be left with IOU’s? Golden chocolate in all shapes and forms, is being sucked into Switzerland for refining, Eastward bound. The Chinese have a love affair for golden chocolate, and like to put it into deep storage. The Indians prefer to wear it on their body for adornment. Europeans and North Americans prefer to have their gold rehypothecated and sold, and vanished, and gone to someone else. I would have to say, with all the economic uncertainty, and endemic financial manipulation, I would be getting my hands on these golden chocolate bars, and as many as I could carry. Not just for capital gain and the short term, but for the purpose of owning a true and tested form of money. If the supply of gold doubled each year, it would eventually become as common as sand on a beach, and nobody would be interested in it. Apart from its metallurgic qualities, if nobody were to accept it as a form of payment, it may as well stay underground. But that is not the case. In fact, Asia seems more than happy to accrue physical, and the price is still low. Why?

Deleveraging of the toxic debt candy

It is no secret that major Western banks are leveraged to the eyeballs, are insolvent, and along with central banks are inflating financial assets and buying securities, keeping the game of musical chairs going for the top 10% or so who own stocks and these assets. The “foodstamp” zombies are growing concurrently too. The wealth divide is wider than ever. So when the music does stop, as it inevitably does, what does the picture look like? For the poor huddled masses, the picture looks fairly similar. For the working poor, they will join the foodstamp zombies. I’d say that most will be in for shock. Especially the rich. The 1% or so will probably be fine. They will have their wealth safely tucked away from inflated and dangerous paper assets. Gold, land, fine art. Traditional avenues of wealth preservation. Probably they will expand their wealth, as they buy up assets and land at rock bottom prices, when the rest of the population is selling and heavily disenchanted. Oh well. Better luck next time.
