It seems the Muslim-majority Malaysia (60%) is becoming a playground for the new Cold War between United States and Russia-China. A few months ago, Malaysian passenger plane MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 390 people onboard disappeared in thin air and its where-about is still a mystery. There are speculations that MH-370 could have been overpowered via cyber piracy and brought down to one the US military bases in the region – South Korea, Japan, Brunei, Guam, Diego Garcia or Andaman Islands.
On July 17, 2014, MH-370’s sister plane MH-17, also Boeing 777-200 jet flying at 33,000 feet was blown out of the sky with a surface-to-air missile over Ukraine. MH-17 was flying en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur with 280 passengers and a crew of 15.
American pro-Israel politicians are accusing Russia for the tragedy, which Russian president Vladimir Putin denied during his talk with Barack Obama on phone. Both Washington and London said the tragedy should serve as a wake-up call for Russia to stop supporting and equipping rebels fighting the (pro-Usrael) regime in Kiev. In other words, Ukraine is American territory and America is Israeli territory.
All we can do is to wait until the dust settle-down. In the meantime, here is some food for readers’ thought
1. The government in Kiev was installed by Washington and is supported by Washington. The CIA-advised Ukrainian army has Russian S-300 surface-to-air anti-aircraft batteries known as BUK M1.
2. On July 3, 1988, America’s USS Vincennes shot-down Iranian passenger airliner Flight 655 by firing two SM-2MR surface-to-air missiles killing 290 people on board including 66 children an crew of 16.
3. The Father of modern Malaysia Dr. Mahathir Mohammed has long been awarded the title of anti-Semitism by the Jewish Lobby for criticizing Israel and believing that Jewish Lobby has too much power in the US.
4. The director of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry’s department of consular service, Andrii Sybiha, said that taking MH-17’s flight recorder out of Ukraine would be considered treason.
