Malaysia Airlines Plane Crashes In South China Sea

Vietnamese Navy confirms crash; Boeing on the hook - again

MANILA BULLETIN VIA REUTERS
03/08/2014

KUALA LUMPUR -

A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew crashed in the South China Sea on Saturday, Vietnamese state media said, quoting a senior naval official. 
 
 
The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam’s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site.

If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner’s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. 
 
 


Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed. It said earlier in the day that no distress signal had been given and cited early speculation that the plane may have landed in Nanming in southern China.

Flight MH370, operating a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, last had contact with air traffic controllers 120 nautical miles off the east coast of the Malaysian town of Kota Bharu, Malaysia Airlines chief executive Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said in a statement read to a news conference in Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysia and Vietnam were conducting a joint search and rescue, he said but gave no details. China has also sent two maritime rescue ships to the South China Sea to help in any rescue, state television said on one of its microblogs. 
 
 
 


“We are extremely worried,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters in Beijing before the Vietnamese report that the plane had crashed. “The news is very disturbing. We hope everyone on the plane is safe.”

The flight left Kuala Lumpur at 12.21 a.m. (11.21 a.m. ET Friday) but no trace had been found of the plane hours after it was due to land in the Chinese capital at 6.30 a.m. (5.30 p.m. ET Friday) the same day. 
 
 
“We deeply regret that we have lost all contacts with flight MH370,” Jauhari said.

Malaysia Airlines said people from 14 nationalities were among the 227 passengers, including at least 152 Chinese, 38 Malaysians, 12 Indonesians, six Australians and three Americans. 
 
 
It also said a Chinese infant and an American infant were on board. If it is confirmed that the plane has crashed, the loss would mark the second fatal accident involving a Boeing 777 in less than a year and by far the worst since the jet entered service in 1995.

An Asiana Airlines Boeing 777-200ER crash-landed in San Francisco in July 2013, killing three passengers and injuring more than 180.

Boeing said it was aware of reports that the Malaysia Airlines plane was missing and was monitoring the situation but had no further comment. The flight was operating as a China Southern Airlines codeshare.

An official at the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) said the plane had failed to check in as scheduled at 1721 GMT while it was flying over the sea between Malaysia and Ho Chi Minh city.

Ukraine : The West And Russia Eyeball To Eyeball

CIA engineered coup now threatens to engulf EU in flames

NEWS CLICK
By Prabir Purkayastha
03/07/2014

Crimea has virtually declared autonomy from Kiev and with the support of Russian units stationed in Crimea, have taken control of its territory. 


Russia, after demonstrating its willingness to militarily intervene in Ukraine if Russian speaking population were to be attacked, has declared that it does not see any need for such an intervention right now. While EU and the US have been talking about Russia's military intervention and how it violates international law, they are unable to explain why they are backing an illegal coup against a duly elected president in Ukraine, that too carried out with the help of neo Nazi militias. And it takes some chutzpa for the US to accuse others of violating international law -- specially military interventions in other countries -- considering its history.
 
 
Ukrainian Nazis
That the coup was illegal is without question. The Ukraine constitution lays down the procedure for impeachment and removal of a President. It has mandatory provisions such as setting up an investigation committee, framing of charges, multiple rounds of voting in the Parliament and review by the highest judicial body. None of this happened. And it cannot happen in one day and with just one vote in the Parliament; that too under the guns of the street thugs that Svoboda and Pravyi Sektor – the two key fascist organisations – had mobilised after government forces were withdrawn.


Withdrawal of government forces from the Parliament and government offices. and disarming of the street demonstrators was a part of the peace agreement that the EU had brokered between Yanukovich and the opposition. Yanukovich foolishly withdrew his forces, while the other side violated the agreement and remained armed. His MP's were beaten up and he was forced to flee Kiev. Not surprisingly, the MP's of his party – the Party of Regions – either switched sides or kept quiet as Ukrainian parliament passed a series measures including disbanding the riot police, and prohibiting the official use of the Russian language, banning the communist party (which in the last election had 13% of the votes and removing the Russian language TV which most people watch off the cable networks. 
 
 
Foul-mouthed CIA whore Victoria Nuland incited, encouraged, supports Ukrainian fascists
 

The facts on the ground right now are that there are large protests taking place in east and southern parts of Ukraine against the coup in Kiev. Crimea has declared autonomy from Kiev. In Kiev and other towns in western Ukraine, openly fascist formations are in control. Ultra-nationalist Svoboda (Freedom) and Pravyi Sektor (Right Sector) members have been appointed to key positions in the Defense Ministry, National Defense and Security Council, and the Prosecutor General's office. One of them, Dmitry Yarosh (Right Sector) has been inciting attacks against Russian speakers and Jews. Russia is initiating legal action on this. Svoboda leaders Oleh Tyahnybok and Igor Miroshnichenko were declared persona non grata in the United States last year. Tyahnybok has praised his supporters for being the “worst fear of the Jewish-Russian mafia.” 
 
 
U.S. traitor John McCain give aid and comfort to Ukraine Nazis
Yulia Timoshchenko and Yatsenyuk have taken leadership of the Kiev junta with fascist gangs providing the muscle. 
 
It is this mixture of oligarchs and fascists that the EU and the US are now backing. 
 
 
 
 
 
It also confirms the US hand in Kiev – “Yats” was Victoria Nuland's preferred candidate t lead the government in her leaked phone conversation with the US Ambassador in Kiev.


For the west, Ukraine is part of its new “great game”. Ukraine is a major strategic prize – it expands NATO to Russia's doorstep. And if it can deny Russia access to Crimea, guaranteed under an existing accord, this would deny Russia access to its Black Sea naval base – Sevastopol.

Conversely, Russia would not like NATO to be parked at its door step. But they hold many more cards that just military ones. Ukraine depends on Russian subsidised gas supplies for its energy needs, its more developed eastern provinces are economically much more integrated with Russia – both for markets and raw materials. The EU also depends heavily on Russian gas supplies. So Russia can play a waiting game – as long as it keeps the west militarily out of eastern Ukraine, particularly Crimea. 
 
 
Nuland encouraging riots in Kiev
For the west, bringing Ukraine over has very heavy costs. Ukraine needs big money to survive – conservatively estimated to be $ 35 billion over the next year. It is a big economy with over 40 million people. Loans from IMF and western banks are possible, but at high political costs for its local Ukrainian allies. The structural adjustment programs of the IMF and the German banks are hard on the people; just ask the Greeks. 
 
 
This is why Yanukovich refused the EU deal – it came with a cost that he could not accept. Now that the west has backed the new dispensation in Kiev to the hilt, their ability to avoid harsh domestic measures is limited.

The US has announced $1 billion as aid, followed up by EU committing $15 billion, most of it as loan rollovers, etc. Hard cash that Ukraine needs will be available only in driblets and under tough conditionalities. The problem for the Kiev junta is that not only they have a bankrupt economy, the eastern part is much the richer part and helped subsidise Kiev and other parts of a largely agrarian western Ukraine. And this is the part that is now threatening to break away.

The west, particularly the US has been threatening Russia diplomatically – will throw you out of G8, impose sanctions on you if you do not recognise the Kiev junta as the government, etc. There is a Tamil proverb which translates roughly “to scare the opponent with a loud fart”. To Russia, this is exactly how such threats sound. The US and its allies need Russia much more than the other way. Russia is vital to a settlement in Syria, it is integral to the talks with Iran on nuclear fuel enrichment and important in sending supplies to its troops in Afghanistan. Threatening Russia when the US has so little leverage, is a game of bluff that they can only lose.

The US and their allies may have lost the ability for regime change but not their appetite. The problem for the world is that a number of failed states from US misadventures are rising. As countries collapse or are driven civil war, the cost to the people, and indeed the whole world is enormous.

Russia Warns U.S. Over "Hasty Steps" In Ukraine

Obama/EU/UN criminals now commit act of war with sanctions

PRESS TV
03/07/2014

Russia has warned the United States against “hasty and reckless steps” over the crisis in Ukraine that could harm Moscow-Washington relations.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov gave the warning in a telephone conversation with his US counterpart John Kerry on Friday. 
 
 
Sergei Lavrov
Lavrov "warned against hasty and reckless steps capable of causing harm to Russian-American relations, particularly... sanctions, which would inevitably hit the United States like a boomerang," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement issued after the phone conversation.

On the sidelines of a Rome conference on Libya, the two foreign ministers met on Thursday to discuss the situation in Ukraine. After the meeting, Lavrov said there was no agreement between the two sides on the issue. 
 


"In fulfillment of instructions from Presidents Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama, who discussed the situation in Ukraine over the phone the day before, [Lavrov and Kerry] agreed to continue the consideration of the issue of the acute political crisis that has engulfed that country," the statement noted.

US President Barack Obama has already signed an executive order authorizing visa restrictions on those he accused of “threatening Ukraine’s sovereignty and integrity.” 
 
 
Already on fire, a dying EU now pours gas on itself
In response, Moscow has accused Washington of double standards and interfering in Ukraine.

In another statement released on Friday, the ministry said that Moscow will not capitulate to the European Union’s threat of sanctions over the crisis in Ukraine and will retaliate if the restrictions are imposed. 
 
 


"Russia will not accept such language of sanctions and threats, but in the event of their implementation in practice they will not be left without a response," the statement said.

The ministry’s comments came a day after an EU emergency summit in Brussels decided to freeze talks on a visa-free regime with Russia.

The statement also accused the European Union of taking an “extremely unconstructive position” concerning Ukraine’s situation.

EXCLUSIVE : LIVE REPORT FROM UKRAINE

The 5th Estate's Ukraine correspondent reports from Kiev City; referendum pending

THE 5TH ESTATE
By Katerina
03/08/2014

Even from the beginning (November-December) American and European politicians began to arrive in  Ukraine and call on the population of Ukraine to boycott our President V. Yanukovich, who, that time, refused to sign the Agreement between EU and Ukraine on Association.


U.S. traitor John McCain with CIA-supported fascists
Among those politicians were: Vikotira Nuland, John MacCain, Guido Westerwelle, Frans Timmermans, Linas Antanas Linkevičius and many-many others. These politicians visiting Ukraine are demanding "to remove Yanukovich from his position as President."

In the eyes of many Ukrainians it looked very cynical, because Yanukovich was our official President. For example, I voted for him and I didn`t want someone from Europe or USA to "order" my president to go.



They do not have any moral and legal rights to do this. It was a "first bell" for me, because it looked like an open interference in the political and domestic affairs of Ukraine from the side of USA and EU.


Foul-mouthed CIA whore Victoria Nuland with fascists

When the people of Ukraine, supported by USA and Europe, went on demonstrations against Yanukovich, they consisted of two groups: peaceful protesters & aggressive protesters. As I was looking through the European and American mass-media, I noticed that only "peaceful" protesters were shown there to make the image of a really "peaceful" demonstration while in reality, it wasn`t. The videos, filmed almost in the beginning of the riots spak for themselves. Do they appear to be peaceful?


European and American politicians refused to see the truth about aggressive people with Nazi symbols and marks on their clothes . These people continued to repeat "Not to touch peaceful protesters otherwise Yanukovich will be taken to Gaaga court."



As a result, Yanukovich didn`t give orders to our police to fight against these bandit gangs and in the end these bandits took one-by-one half of Ukrainian public administrations, the Parliament and the Presidential administration. 


U.S. traitor, physical, moral coward John Kerry
This is how the new self-proclaimed illegal Government in Ukraine (Kiev) came into being. And this is why Russia still refuses to accept it (actually, the same can be said about most of Ukrainians) and that was the 2nd cynic action that made us realize that American and EU leaders are playing a game with Ukraine.


Almost from the first days of these riots, I noticed that the look of citizens in my city has changed greatly. You see, I have lived in Kiev since birth, and I know how the residents of Kiev look, what clothes they wear, what language they speak, etc.


Kiev is almost a one-nation city. Compared to Paris, for example, it`s very difficult to see dark-skinned  people or asian people that are now in large numbers here. In addition, it`s not a very popular touristic city. 

If we have tourists, they are mostly from Russia and some other post-soviet countries but not from the Western countries, Asia or the Middle East. I can remember only one period where this was in evidence, when we had a lot of Western tourists during the Soccer cup UEFA 2012 that took place in Kiev.


 
Directly addressing that topic, during the several months of riots (from December to March) I noticed a really huge amount of foreigners in my city that I have never seen before. This was highly unusual as most of these foreigners looked not like Europeans at all and were talking to each other in languages that were unrecognizable. 


 These people had much darker skin than Europeans, dark eyes, short & stiff curly hair and on the whole their appearance looked to me like they were of Arab or Turkish origin. There were so many walking openly in the streets and in the public transport that it was shocking, and unprecedented. I have never seen anything like this in my life. It was also very surprising that some of these people had huge heeled knife cuts on their faces. In the daytime they acted like tourists visiting the places of interests and so on, but closer to nighttime many would take part in aggressive riots in the streets of Kiev. 


As I was walking the streets of Kiev at night, I saw many of these bandits standing around and continued to wonder where they had originated from, and what their real purpose was.

There is also a very close connection between Ukrainian oligarchs and the entire Maidan movement. From the beginning these oligarchs supported the protesters with money, food, clothes, etc. 

After Maidan was finished a few of these individuals received positions as the Governors of Regions, a violation of Ukrainian law.

Today Andrei Tarasenko, one of the leaders of the Nazi group "Praviy Sector" announced that Dmitriy Yarosh is going to form his own political party that will participate in future presidential elections that will be held in May.


The 5th Estate will continue to publish reports from on the ground in Ukraine as they develop.
