At long last, the US produced evidence the rebels shot down MH17. Here is the damning proof.

Excuse me. Did I say the US produced evidence?

Sorry, I meant to say German TV Ridicules US “Evidence” In Ukraine

The tenacity of Western attempts to give the Ukrainian crisis an explicitly anti-Russian slant has been noted by a German political satire show, which ridiculed the apparent manner the United States presents its evidence.

The host of Extra 3, the comedy show, got the program going with a few pieces of ‘evidence’: a US-photographed satellite image that supposedly depicts Russian complicity in cross-border fire with Ukraine, then a picture that appeared to be drawn by a child with color crayons.

Christian Ehring pulled no punches when sharing his frank belief that the coverage of the Ukrainian crisis by the Western media has been full of holes since its start in February.

Mr. President!” he said, impersonating a White House staffer rushing to bring evidence to President Obama – “I’m pleased to inform you that we finally have evidence! …I apologize, this is a picture my daughter drew… oh, here it is: I drew this one myself!” Ehring proclaimed.

Really, that’s their only proof? This picture? The American and the West have hundreds of agents in eastern Ukraine. What are they doing there? Keeping an eye on those who violate parking rules in the center of Donetsk?” he added.

Unless you can understand German, please forward to about the 1:20 mark then laugh.


On a more serious note, if the US really had any evidence of anything pertinent about MH17 showing the rebels did it, that evidence likely would have been presented long ago.

So, either there is no evidence, or the evidence leans toward implicating Ukraine, not the rebels.

I lean towards the latter but am willing to reconsider in the face of strong evidence, as opposed to social media campaigns, blurry images days later, and allegations from known liars like Secretary of State John Kerry.
