A lot of things are questionable about what happened immediately before the Malaysian airliner with nearly 300 passengers was downed on July 17th, but those things concern only the immediate cause, and not the ultimate cause, including the motive that ultimately brought this plane down. The ultimate cause of this event is clear.

In the event’s immediate cause, even the Ukrainian government — which instantly accused the anti-government rebels of having shot this plane down — said that rebels did it because rebels confused the civilian airliner with one of the Ukrainian government’s troop-transport planes or bombers in the government’s civil war against the people in that area. If that statement by the Ukrainian government is true, then here are pictures of the sorts of troops and bombs that these rebels were then trying to protect themselves and their families from:

These people have been enduring lots of those sorts of attacks ever since the Ukrainian Government started an ethnic cleansing against the residents in the southeastern half of Ukraine, ethnic cleansing that began about two months after the February 2014 coup d’etat which U.S. President Barack Obama had arranged to overthrow Viktor Yanukovych, the President that these people, the residents in southeastern Ukraine, had elected as Ukraine’s President in 2010. And, then, Obama’s agent, Victoria Nuland, told America’s Ambassador in Ukraine to appoint the banker Arseniy Yatsenyuk or “Yats” to run the country as the Prime Minister, and Yats promptly became the nation’s Prime Minister. And this ethnic cleansing campaign is the direct result of that.

Yats was dissatisfied with the existing Defense Minsters, the holdovers from the Yanukovych era, who didn’t want to carry out any ethnic-cleansing operation, and so Yats chose Mikhail Koval to design the ethnic cleansing plan for his regime to use, and Koval said that the “subhumans” who voted for Viktor Yanukovych — the man whom Obama (with the CIA) had overthrown — those “subhumans” would “be resettled in other regions” (presumably either concentration camps or else in Russia itself as Ukrainian refugees) and that “There will be a thorough filtration of people” to get rid of them, get rid of the Yanukovych-voters. That’s how Ukraine would become a country in which only an obedient agent of America’s aristocracy can “democratically” win the Presidency ever again — no more ones such as Yanukovych had been.

When the people in the area of the ethnic cleansing managed to shoot down on June 14th one of the Obama regime’s planes and its 49 Ukrainian soldiers who were in the process of perpetrating this bombing-and-shelling-campaign against the southeast, Yatsenyuk himself vowed revenge, by using similar language to Koval’s: He said, “They [Ukraine’s soldiers] lost their lives …  in a situation facing a threat to be killed by invaders [i.e., by the residents, not by those troops from the northwest that they had shot down and who were the actual invaders] and sponsored by subhumans [presumably meaning Russians].” Yats continued: “First, we will commemorate the heroes [the exterminators] by wiping out those who killed them and then by cleaning our land from the evil.” However, of course, that’s what Yats himself was already doing (“cleaning” the land), which is the reason why that troop-plane had been shot down in the first place: those troops were invaders and killers. The rebels had to kill them, or else be killed themselves.

Consequently, even if the current Ukrainian Government, which Obama had installed, is correct when they say that rebels shot down the Malaysian airliner – UPDATE: and that’s an extremely dubious assumption to make – then Obama himself had caused it to happen, by his overthrowing the President that the residents in that area had overwhelmingly voted for, and by replacing that President (Yanukovych) with a post-coup regime whose goal is to eliminate the voting-base that had made Viktor Yanukovych Ukraine’s President.

Obama gave as his excuse for replacing Yanukovych, that Yanukovych was corrupt; but all of the post-Soviet leaders of Ukraine have been corrupt; so, as usual, Obama is lying. Yats himself wouldn’t have stood even a chance to become Ukraine’s leader if he weren’t corrupt.

Obama has put in place the ethnic-cleansing campaign, which directly caused, as one of its tragic responses, the erroneous shoot-down of the Malaysian Boeing 777 airliner.

Unless, of course, the regime that Obama had put in place is simply lying about this, and they themselves shot down that jet, in order to enrage the world against Russia, which is Obama’s real target to destroy

Lots is rationally debatable, but this is not – at least not by people who judge by cause and effect and examine all of the relevant evidence in that natural context. Obama is even using this event as a pretext to get the EU to join with him in hiking the economic sanctions against Russia, though there is no evidence that Russia was at all involved in the downing of that plane.

On July 17th, Yahoo News headlined “Obama Warns Russia, Ukrainian Separatists Over Downed Airliner,” but will his con, to win the support of the rest of NATO for a war against Russia, succeed? Lots of “defense” contractors are hoping that it will.

Obama might be even worse than George W. Bush. Americans need to consider that possibility.
