Before any investigation has started, the MH17 crash site has been compromised and evidence tampered with or removed. The blame game started within hours of the MH17 disaster, and the three parties, Ukraine, pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine and Russians, have all denied responsibility.
Some are ready to blame Russian President Vladimir Putin; but who stands to gain from the deliberate act of provocation over eastern Ukraine? Putin is an easy target, as he has been vilified by the western world.
Putin (right) is ruthless and determined, unlike many of his western European and American counterparts. He returned from Brazil the same day MH17 was shot down, after a successful BRIC summit in Brazil. (BRIC is the acronym for Brazil, Russia, India and China, the new emergent economic powerhouses.) Putin would gain nothing from waging a full-scale war.
If that rhetorical question is too difficult to contemplate, think about Perkasa and Isma scaring the rakyat with claims that the DAP and Chinese are capable of starting another May 13. Racial conflict will plunge Malaysia into economic and social chaos. The Chinese, most of whom are purportedly in business, would not be so stupid as to harm their livelihoods and ‘create’ another May 13.
Perkasa and Isma have one thing in common with the CIA. They spread disinformation to cause confusion and to divert attention from the real agenda.
