The criminal downing of Flight MH17

21-07-2014

Attached is the statement issued by the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, referred to in the Dutch Daily De Volkskrant. It is quite clear that the airplane was shot down with a Russian ground to air missile from rebel held territory in Eastern Ukraine. It is high time for all our politicians to call a spade a spade. Russian President Putin is to be held responsible for providing the rebels with advanced weapon systems and with training to use them. The rebels and Russia are massively trying to cover up all evidence, massively violating the corpses of the victims of the crash and consistently preventing international missions to carry out their sad tasks. This must be stopped, if only out of respect for the 298 innocent victims .... among them one of my former brilliant colleagues from Tilburg Law SchoolWillem Witteveen. I pray for his eternal rest, for his wife and daughter and the others.

Further evidence, received through the black boxes and the examination of the wreckage confirm the conclusion advanced by  U.S. intelligence.

In 1989, unexpectedly, Communism and the Cold War were behind us, they were bad and should be forgotten. The immediate post-1989 world presented itself as a new era of organised forgetting, as neither East nor West were interested in examining the prolonged period of acquiescence in absurdities.

The Illusions of Detente

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

Since 1989, we refer to the whole post-war period as the “Cold War Era”. Such was not the case in 1968. At the time, the Cold War – in our perception – was behind us. We no longer felt to be in the midst of it. Europeans on the Western side of the Iron Curtain0 felt relatively at ease with Europe’s division. The era of Détente as we called it, was0 considered to be a fairly stable and long-lasting political condition, even after Soviet tanks crushed Dubcek’s socialism with a human face in Pragu
