USS Vincennes in 1988
Under conditions where the US government has yet to provide any concrete evidence, the American media has rushed to place blame on Russia for the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 in eastern Ukraine. A prominent feature in the propaganda campaign against Russia has been to draw comparisons between this tragedy and the 1983 downing of Korea Airlines Flight 007 by a Soviet Su-15 interceptor. /…/
Despite the uncertainty which remains over the downing of MH17, one possibility which has been completely excluded by the media from the realm of possibility is that the US and German-backed regime in Kiev is responsible. Those who think that the US government is incapable of sanctioning such a horrendous action against innocent civilians should consider the infamous case of the downing of Iran Air Flight 655, in which 290 people died.
