    This behavior is eerily similar to ~1936 Adolf Hitler

    Re: Another Malaysia airlines crash?

    Related, and interesting.

    http://www.latimes.com/nation/nation...717-story.html

    "U.S. radar installations and other assets in the region would assist in tracking any surface-to-air missile, which Ukrainian officials have said probably came from a Russian-made Buk system. The information would be relayed to U.S. European Command, headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany."

    ""They would have known exactly where it was launched, where it was headed, and the rate at which it was traveling," Ellison said. "

    nice. I wasn't familiar with that. I was more just pointing out Godwin's law as a joke, because it's such a similar situation that you almost have to make the comparison.

    Re: Another Malaysia airlines crash?

    Reportedly the Ukrainians have photos of a BUK system being transported back to Russia with only 3 of the usual 4 rockets aboard.

    When I went out to lunch, CNN was discussing with some "expert" who said that you could identify the particular unit by it's radar signature. They almost assuredly have the location (been reported that it was inside separatist regions of Ukraine). But they would need that actual unit to do a match.

    So you can rest assured that thing has been melted down.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to remark how much Wolf Blitzer sucks at his job. Why is he still employed? Does he have photos of someone? He was talking to an Israeli general about their fear of such a missile attack. The general mentioned a recent episode where they were preventing missiles from being transported from Syria to Hamas. Not 10 seconds later, standing face to face, Blitzer prods the general (paraphrase) "so you have proof that Iran is supplying missiles to Hamas?".

    No Wolf - he just told you, not 10 seconds ago, Syria.

    And I don't know why this irks me, but repeatedly last night they would comment how this was the same model as the plane that went down back in April. As if that in any way matters? Perhaps it does, I don't see it though. CNN just can't let that story go. To much invested I suppose.

    Per my recent article, US satellites almost certainly could pinpoint the launch location down to a very small area (my guess is within meters). Apparently this weapon system has a very strong radar signature that tracks the missile to the target, and then turns it over to the missile guidance system itself, which also has a distinct signature.

    This is why, during recent conflicts with Russian supported regimes, part of our initial intent was to get the sites to turn on so that we could find and destroy them. Eventually, they just quit turning on.

    I agree Wolf Blitzer is a terrible robot reporter. However, he may have said that b/c Iran funnels weapons through Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon and also in Israel/Palestine.

    But this has little to do with MH17....

    Yeah - I thought that to. But it just wasn't what the gen said, and he corrected him on it.

    And even though it's obviously true - what kind of reporter makes that leap of what someone just said?

    But that's another thing. I don't watch often - more listen on XM as they have the best "news" and not talk shows - and he's just on during the PM drive home. But Wolf reminds me on a near constant basis, of Jim Grey on his Pete Rose interview. He'll just pull something tangent out and beat an inteviewee over the head with it. He is truly one of those media types who tries to manufacture a headline.

    For anyone still watching CNN today, is the Airline still "Breaking News"?

    Lots of significant differences also. But honestly, Germany in the 30's has been so beaten into our brain that it is the first thing that comes to all of our minds when somebody starts pulling in territories around them.
