Dutch-led criminal investigators said Wednesday they have solid evidence that a Malaysian jet was shot down by a Buk missile moved into eastern Ukraine from Russia.

Wilbert Paulissen, head of the Central Crime Investigation department of the Dutch National Police, said communications intercepts showed that pro-Moscow rebels had called for deployment of the mobile surface-to-air weapon, and reported its arrival in rebel-controlled areas of eastern Ukraine.

From that and other evidence collected by the Joint Investigation Team, "it may be concluded MH17 was shot down by a 9M38 missile launched by a Buk, brought in from the territory of the Russian Federation, and that after launch was subsequently returned to the Russian Federation," Paulissen told a news conference.

Concluded by the Dutch, and supported by every single fact that exists. But not proven to X's satisfaction, and that's what's really important.

So, apparently these are the things you do when your leader has a massive Napoleon complex...

At least if Hillary gets elected, they will both be the exact same height. Maybe he will chill out a little and not feel so insecure, poor guy.

Didn't know where to put this and since there was some discussion about Sirya in this thread, there you go:

http://edition.cnn.com/2017/01/25/polit ... ead-syria/

"(The Syrians) asked me, 'Why are the United States and its allies supporting these terror groups which are destroying Syria, when it was al Qaeda that attacked the United States on 9/11, not Syria.' I didn't have an answer to them."

The US government claims it does not fund these groups and only provides assistance to so-called moderate rebels. However, Gabbard said the Syrians she met with told her that there are no moderate rebels in the country.


P.S. Blasphemy!
