False. Operating the Buk system [wikipedia.org] is too complicated for "peaceful coal-miners" to have done it
During my military service, I knew several conscripts who trained to operate anti-tank guided missiles. Anyone with a bit of a brain could learn to operate them quite easily. It only took a few hours of training. Military weapons are rarely complicated to use. The idea that the Buk system is too complicated except for elite troops is just propaganda.
for an accusation of such gravity, you better have more solid citations than your own "pretty sure". Do you?
What you said could certainly apply to your claim that Russia shot down that plane. So where are your solid citations? Double standard much?
First of all, that was an honest mistake.
One of the reason we knew it was the rebels who shot down the plane is because of some communications which were celebrating the shot down of a plane. A few hours after, not only there was no more communication about this "success", but it looks like some of the messages about it were deleted.
Guess what, that was also a mistake. No one had anything to win with shooting down that plane. The idea that it was Russia and that it was on purpose is just US propaganda. You're obviously a good citizen who listen to his government.
Having said, you should ask yourself why this plane had the authorization to fly over a war zone. OK. I'll help you : it was in part because the US didn't want to consider Ukraine as a war zone for political reasons. The goal with Ukraine was to diminish the influence of Russia over its neighbors. The US wanted the regime change to be as smooth as possible to show Russia had very little power. That's also why the US was against a partition of Ukraine. Think about it.
So?.. Your desperation in trying to switch the topic is really showing.
What desperation? I'm Canadian. I don't care that much about Ukraine or Russia. I have nothing to win or lose here. The only thing I hate is people being dumb enough to repeat propaganda without thinking.
Why imagine it in Mexico, when saw it actually happen in Cuba
The Bay of Pigs invasion. Does it ring a bell to you?
Again, I'm Canadian. I don't watch Kremlin-TV. But on your case, it certainly looks like you spend to much time watching White House-TV.
