RT has posted a video on the MH-17 crash showing evidence strongly suggesting that the Malaysian airliner, rather than being hit by a single surface-to-air missile reputedly fired by pro-Russian separatists, was brought down by repetitive gunfire from a 30mm cannon most likely fired from another aircraft. The video includes interviews with eyewitnesses on the ground who saw another plane in the sky that day, as well as pictures, including the shot above, showing multiple bullet holes in the fuselage of the plane. Also provided is a ballistics analysis of a 30mm cannon similar to that mounted on a type of fighter plane in use by the Ukrainian Air Force. Perhaps especially interesting are comments included regarding what apparently were attempts to manipulate the story on Wikipedia.

Maybe I should have put the word ‘accidentally’ in quotes. But who knows? Maybe George W. Bush was flying the plane. Mission accomplished, you know. At any rate, here’s the description that is posted along with the above video:
“Suddenly the wind turned and the flames started moving towards the illegal settlement on the top of the hill. At this point the settlers started fighting their own fire, to prevent damage to their illegal buildings…”

This morning at approximately 09:30, settlers from the illegal settlement of Yizhar sat fire to a Palestinian olive field above Huwwara village, just outside of Nablus.
Donald Trump is reasonably certain something is wrong. He just can’t quite put his finger on what it is.

It is beginning to look like the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa was not an occurrence of nature. Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois, has done an interview with a Greek publication in which he expresses the view that the US, as far back as the 1980s, set up biowarfare research labs in West Africa for purpose of circumventing the Biological Weapons Convention.

The Western media seem largely to be ignoring the death of Serena Shim. Apparently in evaluating the “newsworthiness” of the story, news editors and media owners in the West have decided that her job as a reporter for Press TV outweighs any considerations of her having been a US citizen. The only Western media outlet that has run a story on her death, at least as far as I’ve been able to tell, is the UK Daily Mail, and the tone of its coverage projects a certain air of skepticism in places.
The Kurdish heroes of Kobani seem to be earning the world’s respect. Not only are they great fighters, but they also aren’t exactly slouches when it comes to humor and satire.
‘They Milk the Goat, Even if it’s Male': Kurdish TV Turns to Musical Parody in Battle with ISIS
My suggestion to Kurdish TV: make your next parody on Erdogan.
A few days ago I put up a post that included a report from Press TV journalist Serena Shim reporting from the Turkish-Syria border. Shim is an American citizen, and the report she filed included an interview with a Kurdish refugee who spoke of ISIS terrorists in Kobani first raping, and then decapitating, a young girl.

ATLANTA, October 17 (RIA Novosti) – The public continues to be reassured that Ebola is not a problem for the US, but CNN reports that Obama has appointed an Ebola Czar. The Czar is not a medical person but an insider lawyer who served as chief of staff to Vice President Biden.
