American Political Historian Eric Zuesse Reports on MH17 Story and Coverup

slavsep29-16tWell-known geopolitical historian Eric Zuesse has sent, at my request, a number of links to his past articles on the downing of Flight MH17, the Boeing 777 passenger airliner that crashed near Torez in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) on July 17, 2014.

Zuesse’s research on the cause of the downing of the 777 is especially important now that the Dutch Safety Board has released, on September 28, 2016, the preliminary “findings” of Phase II criminal inquiry of the MH17 official crash investigation. Articles by Eric Zuesse exposing the reality of the MH17 shootdown can be found at:

Phase II of the DSB investigation focused on who is responsible for the crime. The first phase, covering the cause of the crash, was published in October 2015. In Phase I, the Dutch team concluded, based on weak or nonexistent data, that the cause of the crash was a BUK surface-to-air missile strike. This contradicts a large body of eye-witness and technical evidence indicating one or more Ukrainian fighter jets shot down the plane. See:

Since the Phase II investigation was based on an unfounded premise, the results are either suspect or entirely groundless.

The Dutch team claim the alleged BUK system was transported via a roundabout route from the Russian border to the launch site, then returned after the crash by that same route to the Russian border. Support for this claim appears to come partly from Bellingcat, a debunked propaganda outlet. Of course, if the premise is false, the evidence supporting it must also be false, so the Dutch team would have had to rely on propaganda.

The Dutch team also purports that the BUK missile was launched from DPR militia-held territory. Since it’s unproven there was a BUK missile in the first place, it is a moot point whose territory the launch site was in. The allegation, however, is damaging in that it falsely implicates Russia and/or the Donetsk People’s Republic. This is dangerous ammunition in the hands of hostile Western powers at a time of escalating US-instigated tensions with Russia.

The allegation does, however, fit the apparent financial elite agenda of provoking war with Russia to preserve Western global dominance, a complex issue dealt with elsewhere on this website.

It goes without saying that Russia and the Donetsk People’s Republic would have no motive for shooting down a passenger plane. The Ukrainians however would have had a motive. Some have proposed the false flag motive: that the Ukrainians shot down the airliner in order to blame Russia. If that were the case, they have succeeded at least in casting suspicion on Russia.

There is, however, another possible motive related to the Ukraine war effort. Kiev would have gained a strategic military advantage by shooting down a major passenger airliner at precisely the spot they did. The crash site was located near the border between the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics just below the Debaltsevo pocket, where the Ukrainian Armed Forces were trying, unsuccessfully, to break through to the Russia border and thus divide the two Republics. The Ukrainians must have known a major crash at this spot, along with the ensuing investigation and recovery involving numerous foreign officials, would cause chaos in the area, thereby disrupting the coordinated efforts of the DPR and LPR militias.’

The ploy nearly worked. In the days following the crash, the UAF almost succeeded in cutting the last highway between the cities of Donetsk and Lugansk. See: Flight MH17: Theory on the Motive for the Shootdown
