    The facts don't support the US propaganda that Russia is responsible for the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crash; that is why Washington is pushing a UN International Tribunal on the catastrophe to get what it wants, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts stresses.

    There is something very fishy about the fact that Washington and Kiev refused to release crucial data related to the MH17 catastrophe, while Russia, in contrast, provided all evidence in its possession in full compliance with the evidentiary requirements of the investigation, according to Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, a prominent American economist, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and author.

    "Washington refuses to release the information from its spy satellite that was directly overhead at the moment of the airliner's destruction, and Kiev refuses to release its communications with the airliner that directed the airliner to change course and to fly over a combat zone," Dr. Roberts pointed out.

    "The Dutch or the Europeans, whoever it is that is responsible for investigating the downing of the Malaysian airliner MH-17, is unable to get a report released. What does this tell us? It tells me that the facts don't support the propaganda that Russia is responsible. You can bet your bottom dollar that if there was any evidence of Russia's responsibility, the report would have been out long ago," he stressed.

    However, while Washington can block the Dutch report on the tragedy it cannot completely falsify it. Thus far, Washington is racing against the clock to push ahead a UN International Tribunal on the MH17 airliner in hopes of gaining the results it wants.

    In order to prevent its "frame-up," Moscow had to veto the resolution in the UN, and now it is accused by the West "of hiding its complicity in the attack on the airliner and opposing justice for Malaysia," Dr. Roberts noted.

    Amid this storm of criticism the West has not taken a blind bit of notice that Russia continues to assist a thorough and objective investigation into the causes and circumstances of the crash.

    At the same time some experts express their surprise regarding the fact that there have been a lot of cases of civilian aircraft shot down by military, but a UN tribunal into these cases had never been initiated before. "So, why should it happen this time, when the tribunal has a great chance of being biased against Russia?" German aviation expert Peter Haisenko told Sputnik in a recent interview.

    "At some point the Russian government needs to understand that its faith in the West is a mistake and that when Russia relies on Western goodwill Russia cuts its own throat," Dr. Paul Craig Roberts warned.

      As I am already tired of stating...

      .... if an airliner is 85% full of aviation fuel, and you hit it with a missile, it goes kaboom, the fireball blows it into a million pieces midair.

      But MH17 hit the ground intact.

      MH17 was shot down by an SU27 of the Ukrainian Air Force.
    • The devils are seeking to hide the truth in 75 year long long grass, McGowan above says the evident truth, it had a lot of fuel to go all the way to Asia.

      inboxhelp-001, Indeed. A number of the dead passengers were found wearing oxygen masks. It's impossible they would have put masks on after the mid-air explosion which the USA is touting in its version. Strangely the news about these masks disappeared quickly after the Americans realised this detail undermined their made-up tail of a missile attack. It has subsequently been deleted from most accounts in the American-loyal western media.

      Furthermore, the scatter pattern of debris - major hull and wing sections, items from the hold, items and bodies from the cabin - are entirely consistent with the plane hitting the ground intact. If the plane had - as the Pentagon and NATO claim - been blown to pieces mid-air, the pieces would be in a random formation over a far wider area than is actually the case.

      It would be so nice if Cyber Berkut (or another computer-skilled group/person) would be able to obtain the high-resolution images from the amer spy satellites that were over Ukraine at the MH17 tragedy. and to make them public... that will show us clearly who is the culprit and will finish once for all the ''mystery''...
      Where is Cyber Berkut (or Anonymous, or other super skilled hacker group) when we need them?
